Welcome to Nina C. Miller and Associates.  In an attempt to establish a smoothly running office system and a professional relationship with our clients, we have developed the following policies and procedures.  We ask that you read and sign this information sheet in order to insure your understanding and willingness to abide by our established policies.  Please do not hesitate to ask questions, and thank you in advance for your cooperation.

1. Sessions are 50 minutes in length.  Overtime or phone consultation time is charged in 15 minute intervals.  Payments are to be made at the time of your appointment.  It is a good idea to pay at the beginning of each session so that you and your therapist are not rushed or distracted towards the end of your time.

2. In order to cancel or change an individual, marital, family or phone appointment, you must notify the office or your therapist at least 48 hours prior to the scheduled appointment.  If your appointment is on a Monday, we need to be notified by Friday.  If proper notice is not received, you are responsible for payment for the missed session.  Phone therapy may be an option if circumstances prevent you from making an office visit.  The same fee applies.

3. All group therapy sessions are charged to you regardless of attendance or notification of absence.  This policy has been established as a way of fostering group cohesion and retaining your space in the group.

4. Insurance is the responsibility of each client.  However, if you provide all the pertinent information required, we will make every attempt to file the insurance for you and/or expedite the process.

Fees are as follows:

Individual, Marital/Conjoint, Family Therapy, Phone Therapy             $110.00 per session
Group Therapy (1 ½ to 2 hours)                                                               $50.00 per session

All communications between you and your therapist will be held in the strictest confidence unless you give written permission to release information.  Exceptions to this confidentiality would be in those cases involving child abuse (sexual molestation or physical injury to a person under 18 years of age) and/or imminent danger to self or others.  In these instances it is required by law that legal authorities be notified.

I have read, understood, and agree to the above policies of Nina C. Miller, M.A. and Associates.
