Email

 

 

 

 

In general, it is not my practice to use e-mail as a form of communication for therapy. I will accept e-mails from client’s in-between sessions, as long as they do not take more than a few minutes to read. The typical e-mails might be related to a child’s academic or behavioral progress or from other professionals involved in treatment coordination with the client. If a client is using too much e-mail or is using it instead of working in therapy, then a discussion will take place to discuss the use of e-mails and ways to limit their use and/or to have a separate payment agreement for e-mail communication.

 

It is important to remember that e-mail communication is not confidential: it has the potential to be saved on servers and in computer hard-drives. However, it is very convenient to use e-mail to change or coordinate an appointment. We will use this method if a phone call is not possible. However, a phone call is required to cancel an appointment

In order to communicate through email, you will need to sign a release form acknowledging that email by nature cannot be guaranteed confidential. Email is only to be used for business related, or logistical communications, and is not to be used as a means of therapy. I do not offer out email Art Therapy 

All electronic communication compromises your confidentiality.

If a client does not want to have e- mail communication, it is up to the client to inform us of this request

Cancellations occasionally happen. Since the scheduling of an appointment involves the reservation of time especially for you, the regular session rate will be charged for sessions missed without a 24-hour notice of cancellation. You are welcome to email me if that is easier for you
