If you are unable to keep your appointment we ask for a 24 hour notice so that we can offer that time to one of your colleagues. Please email to cancel/reschedule. Include several days and times when you are available. We recognize that your schedules are often very dynamic and make appropriate allowances. Please read the following information carefully. The Same-Day-Call policy can be enacted if you fail to attend two consecutive sessions and give 24 hour notice. The counselor may then require that your name be placed on a "same day schedule list." You must then call on the same day an appointment is desired and is scheduled if time permits. The counselor may take you off of the “same day schedule list” at his/her discretion. The Administrative Staff will be notified if the counselor implements or removes your name from the Same-Day-Call policy so that you may be scheduled correctly.
