24 hour cancellation policy

Therapy time has been specifically reserved for your use. Regardless of reason, any appointments that are not cancelled at least 24 hours in advance of the appointment time will be billed at the rate equal to one half of your session cost. Billing you at one half of the cost creates a situation where the financial burden is shared equally between you and your therapist. Please do not ask your therapist to make the entire financial sacrifice.

Cancellations may be made by voice mail at 404 987 5579.

Consent Form

I _______________ __________ hereby grant permission to Dr. Gail Reece to provide any therapy, testing, or diagnostic evaluation that may be deemed pertinent in the treatment of myself, my marriage, or my family (including my minor children). I willingly and voluntarily agree to mental health treatment and release any and all other providers and support/clerical contractors from liability claims. I understand that all fees are due at the time of service. In other words, the full fee must be paid at the start of each session. I understand that there is a 24 hour cancellation policy and I will be billed the rate of one half of the full fee for my missed appointment unless I have cancelled my appointment at least 24 hours in advance of the appointment time. I understand that there will be a $25.00 service charge for all returned checks and that all additional collection expenses are my financial responsibility if the amount of the returned check plus $25.00 is not paid in cash within 30 days. I understand that outstanding accounts will be forwarded to a collection agency. By signing this agreement, I waive confidentiality for that purpose only.

Confidentiality policy

Our confidentiality policy is highly regarded and followed. All communications between client and therapist are kept strictly confidential. Dr. Reece or any associate of Dr. Reece will respond to any request for release of information regarding all our clients by indicating that a signed written release must be obtained prior to any information being released or discussed. Otherwise we will not even acknowledge that the undersigned is a client of Dr. Reece. Exceptions to this rule are where state law requires the reporting of threats of violence, harm, or child/elder abuse and neglect (from evidence or suspicion), and when information is subpoenaed by the courts.

Requested Documents

There is a $50.00 fee for all letters, disability paperwork, and other documents similar in nature that we complete for our clients.

Waiver of Legal Testimony

Dr. Reece considers all communication, either with you or with anyone she speaks with for case coordination to be privileged information. Any trip to court or discussion with a lawyer can put the therapist in an extremely dangerous ethical and legal position. If your goal in entering counseling is to find someone to be your advocate in a legal situation, please let us know and she will assist you to the best of her ability to find the right person to help with your legal testimony. Dr. Reece is asking for your agreement at this time that you will never request a subpoena for her or an employee of hers or for any therapy records other than dates of treatment, a five Axis diagnosis, a synopsis of therapy goals and an evaluation of your general progress.

Emergency Services

In the event that I become ill or I am injured while on the premises, I authorize Dr. Reece or her associates to provide or obtain emergency medical services (i.e. call an ambulance).

My signature acknowledges agreement to conditions set forth above.
