Effective Date: March 5, 2019
We provide the Site as a service for those interested in working with a mental health care provider (therapists, counselors, marriage and family therapists, social workers, psychologists, psychiatrists, etc.).
If you schedule an appointment with us, this time is reserved specifically for you. A limited number of patients are seen so that we can give you the focus and attention you deserve. Because of this, it is extremely difficult to fill cancelled sessions on short notice. If you wish to change or cancel your appointment, please do so at least 48 hours in advance to avoid being billed for the full cost of the missed session.
When scheduling an appointment with us, we may ask for a valid credit card and/or a deposit to reserve your session. You authorize us to charge the credit card you provide for agreed upon purchases and/or any cancellation fees.
