In your initial email to me, please briefly answer the following questions:
- What brings you to therapy now?
- What days and times are you interested in?
- Will you be paying privately or with insurance?
- What is the best way to reach you and can a message be left?
I am often not immediately available by telephone. When I am unavailable, you
may leave a message on my confidential telephone voice mail. I will make every effort to return
your call on the same day you make it, with the exception of weekends and holidays. In case of an
emergency, go to or call the nearest emergency room (911) and ask to speak to a member of the
psychiatric emergency team. My services are limited to outpatient treatment and I do not carry an
emergency beeper. As such, I cannot provide emergency service.
