Payment for Sessions

Clients paying out-of-pocket for therapy will pay the same fee as when we meet in person. For clients using health insurance, I will seek authorization for insurance payment for video-conferencing therapy. Co-payments will still apply. If the insurance company will not authorize this service, we will make other arrangements.

Payment should be made by check by mail to my home address during the current health crisis:

I also have a establish a PayPal account for this purpose under my cmileslcsw@icloud.com  email address.

Cancellations

Given the demands of the current health crisis, there may be a need for last-minute cancellations and we will need to be flexible with each other. Nonetheless, we must respect the time we each commit to our meetings.

Prior to meeting, I will ask you to sign an agreement  syaing  “I have read the above information on videoconferencing psychotherapy, the limitations, and confidentiality caveats. With this understanding, I wish to participate in videoconferencing psychotherapy sessions when health or other concerns prohibit our being able to meet in person.”
