How does treatment work?
Psychological treatment is a shared responsibility between you and Dr. Weitman. Treatment will likely be more effective if you share your honest thoughts and feelings. It calls for a very active effort on your part. If you are engaged in treatment, you may be asked to work on things both during sessions and outside the office. Most problems have solutions, so if you are experiencing problems with the treatment process, please let Dr. Weitman know immediately.
What if I need to cancel an appointment?

If not, you will be charged the full fee for the session.
