Do you take insurance?
No, I'm not an in-network provider on any insurance plans. I can provide you with a superbill to submit for reimbursement, which does require giving a formal diagnosis of mental condition. The insurance company has sole discretion on whether to reimburse. Check with your insurance provider to determine your benefits.
What is your fee?
My fee for a 60-minute session is $180. I do offer some reduced fee spots, as available.
How do you take payments?
I accept payment by cash, check or credit card at the time of service.
Do you keep electronic health records?
Yes, I use a secure web-based client records system called SimplePractice. Before our first session, I will send you a link to the SimplePractice Client Portal, where you'll have access to my Informed Consent and Agreement for Services. You'll complete an intake questionnaire, and a credit card billing form to make automated payments.
When do you schedule appointments?
I offer appointments as available on Mondays and Wednesdays, 10AM through 8PM.
How often will we meet?
It's preferable to meet at least once a week to establish momentum on treatment. However, we will decide together what's best for your situation, whether it's more or less frequent.
Do you offer phone or video sessions?
Yes, I do offer phone or video conference sessions for California residents. I currently use SimplePractice as a video conference platform. There are limits to these methods, as confidentiality cannot be guaranteed over the internet.
What's your cancellation policy?
I have a 24-hour cancellation policy. If you need to cancel, please let me know as soon as possible 24-hours prior to your appointment, so you don't incur a late cancellation fee. I hold your appointment time for you alone, and do not fill it with other clients when you can't make it. The late cancellation fee is your full fee for service.
Start by doing what's necessary; then do what's possible;
and suddenly you are doing the impossible.
