Our session time is reserved for you. Reality does not always allow us to keep our promises, but a canceled appointment is an interruption in our work which will delay completing it. I am rarely able to fill a canceled hour unless I have at least 24 [business] hours notice. I will make our meetings a first priority and ask you to do the same. If you cancel your appointment within 24 hours and I am unable to fill your spot, you will be responsible for the full fee of your scheduled appointment (your insurance will not cover this charge).
If you are unwell or running a fever, we can either switch our appointment to telehealth or we can reschedule. If I am able to reschedule your appointment within the same week then you will not be charged the late cancellation fee. I cannot guarantee that I will always be able to do this, however.
If I cancel on you within 24 hours of the appointment, you will get a “free pass.”
