Do you have a cancellation policy?

Once your appointment is scheduled, it is reserved for you. Therefore, I request that you notify me a minimum of 48 hours in advance for a cancellation. Appointments that are not cancelled in advance will require payment of the full cost of the session.

Do you work with people from diverse backgrounds, ethnicities, and religions?

My practice is full of people from diverse racial, ethnic, and religious backgrounds. I work with interracial couples, LGBTQIQ individuals/couples, and a multiplicity of relationship structures. I have a background in cultural anthropology, which helps me to understand each person as coming from a unique culture.
