Online Skype Appointments

Many patients in Calgary, Edmonton, Nelson, Kelowna and Vancouver, as well as other areas of Alberta and British Columbia, and Spokane, Washington, see Dr. Hersh via Skype, and have found it to be both efficient and effective. Skype permits the intimacy and immediacy of an in-office consultation, including the important visual cues which we are able to share with each other via webcam, from the comfort of your own home or office at more easily convenient times.

Fees and Session Length

The fee for service is per 50-minute therapy hour. Sessions that to go beyond 50 minutes will be billed in 1/2-hour increments. Your credit card information is recorded at the beginning of the session, and any remaining administrative matters will be handled when the session has ended.

Cancellation Policy

Cancelled appointments will be billed as though the appointment had been kept, unless cancellation is made a minimum of 48 hours prior to the appointment. Sessions cancelled without 48-hour notification will not be rescheduled without prepayment. Cancelled initial sessions will not be rescheduled without prepayment.

Insurance Reimbursement

You are responsible for full payment per session. We accept VISA, Mastercard and email bank transfers. We do not bill third parties. It is up to you to seek reimbursement from your insurance company, if your plan covers this service. A paid invoice will be provided upon request.

Confidentiality

Effective therapeutic practice can be achieved only in a secure atmosphere of confidentiality. Sessions will be kept strictly confidential except for the limits imposed by law. In all other situations, each individual will be asked to sign a Release of Confidential Information form prior to the release of any confidential information.

You are encouraged to ask questions about any procedures that are used during our therapy work together. At any time, you may end therapy without any moral, legal or financial obligations other than those already incurred. We will be happy to discuss alternate treatment methodologies or provide you with referrals to other qualified professionals upon request.
