Who may be interested in Teletherapy/Video Conference sessions:

 

  • People who want total and complete privacy and confidentiality. 
  • People who live in isolated areas are homebound or do not have access to therapy services.
  • People who desire the convenience of receiving counseling in their home or office.
  • People who want assurance that their therapist is highly skilled, compassionate, trained, and credentialed in psychotherapy art and science.
  • People with depression, self-esteem, relationship problems, stress, grief, and loss, anxiety, agoraphobia, sexual issues, abuse, recovery from trauma, addiction, mental illness, life transition, or work difficulties.  

 

I promise to make every effort to provide the service you have requested in the timeliest manner possible in anticipation of technical and other life difficulties. If necessary, I will reschedule our session to a later date to ensure you receive the service you have paid for.

Participation in online counseling with me requires you to provide complete and accurate personal information so that I can contact you in the event of technical or other life difficulties. Any service request not fulfilled due to technical or other problems is eligible for a full refund. However, my maximum liability is limited to the fees paid by you for my services.

I will not be held liable for any damages that may be attributed to any third party, such as “Google merchant” or the company that hosts my website. Any person requesting my services agrees that I will not be held liable for any special, incidental, indirect, or consequential damages or loss arising from the use or inability to use any of the services I offer.

Online or phone counseling is not for you if… 

  • You are seriously considering hurting yourself (suicide) or hurting someone else.
  • If you are currently suicidal or afraid you may hurt someone else.
  • You need to go to a local mental health hospital or facility immediately.

In an emergency, call 911 for help or dial 211 for a national helpline. If you are feeling suicidal, you may call Common Ground Resource and Crisis Helpline at

1-800-231-1126 or The National Suicide Prevention Lifeline (NSPL) 1-800-273-TALK. NSPL is a suicide prevention network of 132 crisis centers in the United States that provides a 24-hour, toll-free hotline available to anyone in suicidal crisis or emotional distress.

After dialing 1-800-273-TALK, the caller is routed to their nearest crisis center to receive immediate counseling and local mental health referrals. The Lifeline supports people who call for themselves or someone they care about.

Cancellation Policy

I require 24 hours notice for a cancelation of a session as this allows me to offer the appointment to another client who may be on a waiting list for an appointment. The total fee of $125 will be charged for non-attendance or less than 24 hours notice of cancelation.

Please feel free to contact me, to explore whether I can be helpful during this time.
