FamilyWorks Policies

Payment

Payment is due at time of service. Acceptable forms of payment include: cash, check, or credit cards. Unfortunately, we do not accept insurance--FamilyWorks is an "Out of Network Provider." Please check with your insurance company prior to your initial intake session to better understand your coverage and what percentage of your fee may be reimbursable. All clients receive an invoice the night prior to their session, attached to a "Session Reminder” email which can be submitted to your insurance company. A sliding fee scale is available for those who require assistance. Please inquire about this option during your initial intake with your therapist.

Confidentiality

Complete confidentiality of all information shared between client and therapist will be maintained at all times in order to foster a trusting, positive rapport. According to Connecticut state law, the only exceptions to confidentiality are cases involving a client’s potential desire to harm oneself, to harm another person, or regarding cases involving disclosure about abuse and/or neglect. In these cases, parents, social service or local police authorities may be notified to ensure safety.

Cancellation

At FamilyWorks, we require 24-hours notice for cancellation— with exception to illness, inclement weather, and family emergencies. If you are unable to keep our appointment, please email, call or text the office to let us know in advance. If you do not give 24-hour notice (with exception to illness, inclement weather, or family emergencies), you will be charged in full for the appointment. This policy is in place because the therapist’s time is valuable, and another client could have been scheduled for that particular day and time. Thank you for your consideration.
