Q: What if I am enrolled in a weekly class and must miss a class session?
A: If you must cancel a class you may do so and make it up at the end of your program as long as you provide 24 hour advance notice. If you fail to provide 24 hours advance notice you will be charged for the missed class.
Q: Are these services confidential and private?
A: Yes. I will not disclose any information about your participation without your written consent. There are limitations, however: Like any other service of this kind, records are subject to legal subpoena. In addition if I become aware that you have knowledge of or have caused harm to a child or a vulnerable adult (or that you plan to harm yourself or someone else), I must report this as a mandated reporter.
Q: Do you work with people who are not court ordered?
A: Certainly. In fact, most of the people I work with are self-referred and have no court involvement at all. Others may not be court ordered, but may have legal issues which motivate them to get help for anger issues.
Q: Are your services free?
A: No, but the investment you make can have lasting dividends in terms of a better life, improved relationships, and higher self-esteem. Please refer to each service’s page for pricing. I am not aware of any free anger management services.
Q: The judge ordered me to take anger management. How will I get reimbursed for the fees involved?
A: The cost of anger management services is your responsibility. Check with your attorney to be sure, but generally you are expected to foot the bill — not the judge.
Q: Do you take insurance/Sooner Care/Blue Cross/Other insurance?
A: No. Anger is considered a normal emotion — not an illness or medical condition — so insurance does not apply to anger management services.
