Scheduling & Fees

Scheduling

Sessions will generally last for 45 or 60 minutes; this will be decided at the time we schedule the appointment. Initial sessions may need to be 90 minutes, depending on the type of clinical assessment needed. Please do not ask to extend a session beyond the time allowed for it. If you are late, we will still end on time so that my next session can start on time. If you need to cancel an appointment, please call me at least 24 hours in advance. Please remember that my income is based on scheduled sessions, so you will be charged for sessions missed without sufficient notice, except in extreme emergencies. For urgent situations, I can schedule appointments within 48 hours. I also provide 24-hour emergency phone access to current clients.

Fees/Methods of Payment

I accept payment by cash or personal check at the time of service. I am enrolled with Medicaid in the Cardinal Innovations coverage area and Blue Cross Blue Shield of NC, and may be able to bill other insurance providers (please discuss this with me). For private pay clients, I have the following sliding scale:
