I require 24 hours notice of cancellation. For cancellations with less than 24 hours notice, I charge the full regular fee. If you do not show up, I will wait for you, assuming you are late, and may charge you the full fee.
Except where special arrangements have been made with me in advance, all clients will be required to pay for services at the time they are received. I will only direct bill a third-party payer where the client has made proper arrangements for such billing and the third-party payer has agreed to these arrangements in writing.
I accept cash in exact amount or personal check. If your personal check is returned, you will be responsible for all fees associated with check return.
Although I will do what I reasonably can to support and help clients obtain third-party reimbursement of fees paid, the client remains personally responsible for obtaining any reimbursement for which they may be eligible.
Fees can be used as an income tax deduction.
