    We use what is referred to as a 'clinical hour' - 50 minutes for direct services and 10 minutes for charting notes, treatment planning, etc.
  • What is the cancellation policy?
    Missed appointments or late cancellations (less than 24 hours' notice) will result in a late cancellation fee equivalent to a full session. Please note that extended healthcare providers typically do not reimburse for cancelled or missed appointments; as such, you may be fully responsible for these fees.
