"I am not what has happened to me.
I am what I chose to become"
~ Carl Jung
Sessions are offered via Telehealth (Simple Practice video Conferencing platform) after proper screening for clinical appropriateness. The online platform I use is HIPAA compliant. This means that the video conferences are encrypted end-to-end and your information is safe and secure. Individual therapy sessions are typically 45-50 minutes weekly at $180 per session. Couples therapy sessions are typically 60 -65 minutes weekly at $250 per session, and family therapy sessions are typically 60-65 minutes weekly at $300 per session. You must reside in the state of California to participate in Telehealth sessions with me.
Fees and Policies
Fees are payable at the beginning of each session, and may be paid by Major Credit/Debit Cards, or Venmo. Fees and Policies can be further discussed during the free phone consultation. Reduced fee services are available on a limited basis and depend upon a person’s resources and ability to pay.
Full fees will be charged for cancelled appointments or no shows. Please note that showing up after 15 minutes of the start of your session is counted as a "no show". If you cancel an appointment less than 48 hours notice (unless due to illness or an emergency) and book a different day, you will be charged full fees for both appointments. You are not required to pay for sessions cancelled due to federal observed holidays . If you cancel or you do not show for your appointment you will be charged at the end of your scheduled session time. You are appreciated for your help in keeping the office schedule running timely and efficiently.
I am an “out of network” provider. I do not belong to any insurance panels. A monthly invoice “superbill” can be provided to you if your insurance company reimburses out of network providers. I am not responsible for fees on claims your insurance company denies. (Please review your insurance policy to determine if mental health services are part of your plan prior to the first session.)
The Therapeutic Process
The outcome of your treatment depends largely on your willingness to engage in this process, which may, at times, result in considerable discomfort. Making changes in your life, remembering unpleasant events and becoming aware of feelings attached to those events may bring on strong feelings of anger, depression, anxiety, etc. Working with these feelings as they come up is an important part of therapy. I cannot promise that your mood, behavior, or circumstance will change; however, psychotherapy has been shown to have benefits for people who engage in it. I will support you as you work towards your therapy goal(s) while applying my knowledge and skills to the best of my ability.
