Cancellation and Missed Appointments
24 hour notice on cancellations is required, without notice, full fee will be charged. Missed appointments result in full fee being charged.
I would prefer not to charge for missed sessions and I will make every attempt to reschedule, although this is not always possible. If you are anticipate being late, please inform me by email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or a phone call (661-524-5726). Whether I may be able to extend our session to accommodate lateness depends on my schedule that day.
In general, the law protects the confidentiality of all communications between a client and psychotherapist. No information is disclosed without prior written permission from the client.
However, there are some exceptions required by law to this rule. Exceptions include:
- Suspected child abuse or dependant adult or elder abuse. The therapist is required to report this to the appropriate authorities immediately.
- If a client is threatening serious bodily harm to another person.
- If a client intends to harm himself or herself. The therapist will make every effort to work with the individual to ensure their safety. However, if an individual does not cooperate, additional measures may need to be taken.
