Confidentiality is one of the most important components between a client and therapist. Successful therapy requires a high degree of trust with highly sensitive subject matter that is usually not discussed anywhere but in the therapist’s office. Elizabeth will provide a written copy of the confidential disclosure agreement, and you can expect that what you discuss in the session will not be shared with anyone. This is called “Informed Consent”. Sometimes, however, you may want your therapist to share information or give an update to someone on your healthcare team (your Physician, Naturopath, Attorney), but by law, your therapist cannot release this information without obtaining your written permission. However, state law and professional ethics require therapists to break confidentiality in the following situations:

* Suspected past or present abuse or neglect of children, adults, and elders to the authorities, including Child Protection and law enforcement, based on information provided by the client or collateral sources.
* If the therapist has reason to suspect the client is seriously in danger of harming him/herself or has threatened to harm another person.

Does what we talk about in therapy remain confidential?

The fees associated with therapy services vary depending on the length and type of session, as well as your insurance provider. Please call to discuss any concerns you might have about session fees, so you know exactly what you can expect. Cash, check, and all major credit cards are accepted for payment.

I am a provider for most major insurance providers in the State of Montana. To determine if you have mental health coverage through your insurance carrier, the first thing you should do is call them. Check your coverage carefully and make sure you understand their answers. Some helpful questions you can ask your insurance carrier:

  • What are my mental health benefits?

  • What is the coverage amount per therapy session?

  • How many therapy sessions does my plan cover?

  • How much does my insurance pay for an out-of-network provider?

  • Is approval required from my primary care physician?

What insurance do you accept, and how does that work?​

To serve all patients promptly, I ask that if you need to cancel or reschedule your appointment, you call at least 24 hours (1 day) before the appointment. If you do not cancel and do not show up, you will be charged $75 for that appointment. 

What is your cancellation policy?​
