Life happens to all of us, and sometimes we just can’t predict our kids (or ourselves) getting sick, car or transportation problems, etc. If something happens where you must cancel, please call me and let me know as soon as you are able to, preferably at least 24 hours in advance.
You must understand that once you schedule an appointment, it’s extremely hard for me to schedule another person in that timeslot if you cancel at the last minute. If you do cancel less than 24 hours in advance, I will need to charge you for the session time that could not be scheduled with someone else.
If you cancel at the last minute on a regular basis, this would be a condition that would make therapy difficult if not impossible, and I would not be serving you well if I continued with you in this fashion. So, I will give you notice that I ‘m unwilling to continue working with you at that point, and I will make sure you have at least three other therapists’ names to contact to resume your work. Showing up for your sessions constitutes a commitment to do the work.
