My services are by appointment only. The length of the appointment times varies on the basis of the services needed. Individual counseling is generally scheduled for 50 minutes. Because the appointment is reserved for you, it is necessary to charge for appointments which are not canceled 24 hours in advance, unless they are occasioned by circumstances which we would both define as an emergency.
As we work together, you will notice that I do not accept phone calls while I am with my clients. During those times and at other times during the day or evening, my calls are answered electronically. I check for messages frequently during the day, and I am able to return 90 to 95 percent of my calls the same day. If we anticipate that greater availability is necessary, special arrangements can be made for therapeutic services. I will not receive calls while on vacation or away to conferences. If you experience a serious emergency call 911 or the crisis line: (206) 461-3222 or 1 800-244-5767.
