Information

Welcome to my practice.

This information concerns my policies, as well as ethical and legal issues related to the services I provide.

Therapy is a relationship between the client and therapist.  Sessions are usually held weekly for individuals and 2x per month for couples work.  Treatment typically continues until both you and I mutually agree that the goals have been satisfactorily addressed or that there is another reason to change the rhythm of our sessions, to gradually bring our work to closure.  You have the right to terminate treatment at any time, however the final stage of therapy is one of the most important and two sessions is encouraged.

 

Confidentiality

Information regarding your use of my services and the content of our sessions together will be kept confidential, except in the following circumstances:

  • You authorize me in writing to release records to appropriate individuals.
  • By legal or ethical requirement, I must report and warn in the event of clear and imminent danger to yourself or another person.
  • For necessary disclosure to authorities information concerning child or elder abuse or neglect.

Professional Fees

Individual sessions are 55 minutes and billed at 150chf.

Couples sessions are 75 minutes and billed at 200chf.

Payments are due monthly. Sessions are not reimbursed by Swiss insurances. An invoice will be given to you at the last session of the month and due by the 10th of the following month. The first session is due in cash at the end.

 

Cancellations and rescheduling

You may reschedule a session at any point by reaching me through phone, email or was app.  Sessions cancelled or changed in less than 24 hours before our appointment time, will be billed at the full fee.  A bill will be mailed to all clients who do not show up or cancel the appointment with less than 24 hours notice. The time we schedule is reserved for you.  Timely arrival is appreciated and helps you maximize your time in therapy.  The session will begin at the prescheduled time.  Please understand I must do this in consideration of the next patient.

Please ask any questions at any point in time during our work together.  Our collaboration and your hopes are important to me.
