I. REGARDING “EMERGENCY” SESSIONS:
“Emergency Sessions” are referred on this site and in my practice as “Urgent Sessions” to avoid the confusion that sometimes exists between definitions in different settings and amounts different people. An “Urgent Session” might refer to a contact with the therapist that was not previously scheduled, but is agreed should occur as soon as possible. Therefore, in this context, its most clear for everyone if the word “Urgent” is utilized which avoids the implications of the word, “Emergency” which, in clinical vernacular refers to an acute crisis, danger, or safety issue.
II. REGARDING EMERGENCIES:
In the event of, but not limited to, an imminent threat, safety concern, perceived danger to yourself or others, including the desire to harm yourself and/or others, IMMEDIATELY call 911 or go to your nearest Emergency Room.
Emergency Services are equipped to provide the appropriate aid for an acute crisis. You can and should contact the therapist once the situation has been stabilized. In an emergency, every second counts.
Maintaining your safety is and continues to be my highest priority.
