Your initial evaluation session will last one hour and fifteen minutes, and thereafter individual therapy sessions last 50 minutes.  When agreed upon in advance, extended sessions may be scheduled. I am also trained to conduct Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), which is designed to resolve the development of trauma-related disorders. EMDR sessions are one hour and fifteen minutes to allow for enough processing time, and couple/family sessions are also one hour and fifteen minutes to accommodate the multiple needs of all participants. For maximum benefit, most clients schedule weekly or bi-weekly therapy sessions. I will arrange our appointments at your convenience and may end up coming to the office solely for you, therefore if you need to cancel an appointment please give me at least 24 hours notice.  Failure to provide this notice generally means someone else is not able to use the appointment time reserved for you. You will be responsible for payment of the full appointment fee unless you experience circumstances both you and I define as an emergency.  This will be determined on a case by case basis.  Also, your appointments must end at the agreed upon time, even if you arrive late, so I have time to make notes and prepare for my next client.  If we start late due to an error on my part you will still receive the full 50 minutes (or more) of session time.


I am typically able to return calls promptly but you can always expect a response within 24 hours.  If I have not responded then assume I have not received your message and call again.  I do not charge for brief telephone calls less than ten minutes.  For longer calls I will be glad to schedule an actual phone session for therapy or consultation services.  If you choose to contact me by email or text message, I cannot guarantee the response time. While I make an effort to be available after normal business hours, I do not provide emergency services.  In the event of an emergency, please call the emergency room of your local hospital or 911.  The Hillsborough County 24 hour Crisis line is (813) 234-1234.
