Practical Information

 

Fees

My standard fee is 120 frs for a 50 minute session.  However, I offer sliding scale fees, which means that I offer reduced fees if you are having financial difficulties.  Please discuss this option with me.  Payment is due in cash at the end of each session.

Cancellation & Rescheduling

Please let me know at least 48 hours in advance in case of rescheduling or cancellation of an appointment. You will be expected to make the full payment for missed sessions without such notice.

Confidentiality
I will not share the information that you disclose to me in a session with anyone without your written permission.  This confidentiality in the therapeutic relationship is stipulated in the Code of Ethics of the National Board for Certified Counselors (NBCC) by which I abide.  I take confidentiality very seriously; if you are to explore your deep, private feelings and thoughts with me, you need to be able to have trust and safety knowing that what you share with me will stay confidential.  However, there are a few exceptions to confidentiality:
1. You are in danger of seriously harming yourself or others.
2. Any child or elder and dependent adult abuse is involved.
3. There is a court order to release the information.
In above cases, I will have to take appropriate steps to protect you and other individuals at risk.
Language
I offer sessions in English and Japanese.
