How do I change or cancel my appointment?
Contact me via text, email, phone, or the client portal as soon as possible and at least 24 hours prior to your appointment to avoid a late cancellation or no show fee. Since I am reserving time specifically for you, late cancellation and no show fees are charged regular session fees (I do realize emergencies happen – we’ll discuss on a case by case basis).

Yes! For individuals, I offer a FREE 15 minute phone or online/video consultation. Couples wishing to experience the research-based Gottman method start with a 90 minute assessment session.
