Cancellations Policy

Because both your time and my time are valuable, your appointment is specifically reserved for you. If you cannot keep your appointment, a 24-hour cancellation is required by phone (no text or email). All missed appointments and late cancellations will be charged the full session fee. These fees cannot be billed to insurance. If I am a provider with your insurance, you will be charged the full contracted rate.

Telehealth

I offer telehealth therapy sessions via a HIPPA compliant video platform within the State of California. Coaching sessions outside the State of California are available by video and phone. Please contact me directly at (805) 886-5538.
