You have taken a very positive step by deciding to seek therapy. The outcome of your treatment depends largely on your willingness to engage in this process, which may, at times, result in considerable discomfort. Remembering unpleasant events and becoming aware of feelings attached to those events can bring on strong feelings of anger, depression, anxiety, etc. There are no miracle cures. I cannot promise that your behavior or circumstance will change. I can promise to support you and do my very best to understand you and repeating patterns, as well as to help you clarify what it is that you want for yourself.
The standard meeting time for psychotherapy is 45 minutes. It is up to you, however, to determine the length of time of your sessions. Requests to change the 45-minute session need to be discussed with the therapist for the time to be scheduled in advance.
We understand that some things are unavoidable. We allow for a 10-minute grace period after the start of a session. If you will be more than 10 minutes late, the session will have to be rescheduled, if there is another appointment scheduled immediately after your original appointment. If we are able to accommodate you, we will do our best to do so. We ask that all clients call if they are running behind schedule. Please be advised that if you agree to proceed with your session (after running late), you may lose some of that session time.
Please remember to cancel or reschedule appointments 24 hours in advance. If there are cancellations within 24 hours of your appointment, there may be a nominal charge. This is necessary because a time commitment is made and is held exclusively for you.
We accept cash, debit, credit, and HSA/FSA cards. To protect your credit and debit card information, we use IvyPay, a HIPAA compliant system to protect your privacy and financial information. You will receive sign-up information prior to beginning sessions.
New clients can schedule their first appointment by calling our offices at (856) 499-0434. Existing clients can schedule appointments via our website.
The session content and all relevant materials to the client’s treatment will be held confidential unless the client request in writing to have all or portions of such content released to a specifically named person or persons. Limitations of such client-held privilege of confidentiality exist and can be discussed with your therapist. Occasionally, therapist may need to consult with other professionals in their areas of expertise, in order to provide the best treatment for you. If this is necessary, you will be asked for your written permission to do so in advance.
Your confidentiality and privacy are of the utmost importance. In the spirit of maintaining your privacy, most therapist will refrain from communication outside of session. However, if you acknowledge a therapist first, many will greet you, but will limit communications for your protection.
