Family session / Third-Party contact
Scheduled family sessions and consultations with third parties last 50 minutes and are assessed the standard hourly therapy fee.
A Release of Information form must be on file in order for the therapist to speak with family, spouses, friends, professionals, or other parties who are not the client. This applies whether the client will be present during the session or not.
If the Release is not received prior to the start of the session, then the session will need to be rescheduled.
For any clients 18+, this policy applies to parents as well.
Clients have certain rights related to obtaining and viewing their records, which may include any information shared with the therapist by other parties.
