What is your cancellation/no show policy & fees?
Clients can cancel or reschedule an appointment anytime: If they provide 24 hours' notice. If you cancel an appointment with less than 24 hours' notice or fail to show up, you will be charged the full session fee. This means that if an appointment is scheduled for 3:00 pm on a Tuesday, notice must be given by 3:00 pm on Monday at the latest.
If you are a weekly client and you miss three scheduled appointments within a three-month time period, the therapeutic relationship may be terminated and appropriate referrals to other practices will be offered.
If you are a bi-weekly client and you miss two scheduled appointments in a two-month period, the therapeutic relationship may be terminated and appropriate referrals to other practices will be offered.
