My therapist does long term treatment, and he also operates a residential treatment program for young adults. From what he said, I think he will do his best to try to accomodate me, but he cannot guarantee this. For example, when I had a pulmonary appt. from six months ago from before I even started seeing him and at the same time as our standing appointments, he got someone to take that time period and did not charge me. I think if I were going on vacation for two weeks, he would do his best to try to fill the time slots, but there is no guarantee he could. He was also going to give me a second time last week since we were going to miss Friday, but I could not fit it in my schedule. So, I think as much as possible he will try to accomodate me and others, but I can understand.

My last therapist would reschedule me to different times, not charge me if I was gone, etc, but he was in a group practice too and also someone who did mostly short term therapy. I just happened to be a more long term patient. It is so odd as my last therapist thought it would be bad for us to meet more than once per week, and my current therapist would prefer if we could meet three times per week, not just twice. But as I said my current therapist is a trained psychoanalyst, and my last therapist was not. Both are psychiatrists.
