Office Policy Statement

Fees:

Confidentiality:

I respect your right to privacy and hold information that you discuss in strict confidence. No information about you will be disclosed unless you have signed a written release, except for in the following circumstances:

If you threaten grave bodily harm to yourself or another, or if you are unable to care for yourself, I am legally responsible to inform the appropriate authorities, and the intended victim.

If I hear of or suspect physical abuse or neglect, or sexual abuse, I am required to report this information.

I seek supervision and consultation to ensure the quality of my work. These are done under strictly professional and confidential circumstances.

Scheduling and Cancellations:

If you miss a scheduled session with less than 24 hours’ notice, you will be charged for that session. If you need to change a scheduled session, the sooner you let me know the better, as I will more likely be able to find you another appointment time.

Phone Calls:

When leaving a message please indicate several good times when I can call you and include your phone number. There is no charge for business & scheduling phone calls.

Crisis Information:

If you have a mental health crisis or an emergency that requires immediate medical attention, please contact the Crisis Line of Grays Harbor at (360) 532-4357. You may also call 911 or go to the emergency room at the nearest hospital.
