How can I pay for a session?
What if I miss a session or cancel late?
We have a firm cancellation policy; If you cancel with less than 24 hours notice or do not show up for an appointment, we will charge you half (50%) of a session fee.
We have an awesome online booking system that offer email and text message reminders of your appointment to help you stay on track and reschedule in plenty of time if need be.
If you are ill on the day of your appointment, or some other life event prevents you from making to the office, Marcy offers online sessions as an option for individuals so can keep on track with your work together.
How many sessions will I need?
Are the therapy sessions confidential?
– If you pose an immediate and serious threat to your own life and safety or to someone else, confidentiality may be broken in order to prevent harm.
– If you go to court, my files may be subpoenaed for information pertaining to your treatment.
– If we have reason to believe that children or dependent adults are being abused or neglected, we am required by law to report these things.
We also take notes during session in keeping with the standards of our profession. These notes are stored in a secure electronic health record system that meet the privacy requirements of Nova Scotia and Canada
