Here are common questions asked by my clients
Are You Accepting New Clients?
Yes. I am accepting new clients. I have day and evening appointments available.
How Long Is A Session?
Typically, sessions are 50 minutes long. I offer longer sessions to couples and families that are in crisis and need more time.
What Forms Of Payment Do You Accept?
I accept cash, check, and most major credit cards.
What Insurance Plans Do You Take?
I am not currently on any insurance panels as I find that often directs the duration and type of therapy I am able to provide. Most insurance plans will reimburse out of network providers and I can provide a bill at the end of each month to submit to them.
What Is Your Fee?
My full fee is $150 per 50-minute session, and $200 for couples and families per 80-minute session. If you are an MFT intern or student, or have strenuous financial struggles please ask about sliding scale rates.
How Do I Make An Appointment?
Who Do You See In Your Private Practice?
I work with individuals, couples and families. Often the clients I see are having problems due to grief and loss, depression, anxiety, stress, stage of life changes, trauma, and relationship problems. Other common concerns for my clients are parenting struggles and behavior difficulties with kids.
Is What I share Confidential?
The laws concerning confidentiality in California are very clear: What you choose to share with a therapist is confidential as long as the therapist does not suspect certain dangerous conditions. When clients share information about child abuse, elder abuse, suicidal ideation, homicidal ideation or if the client is gravely disabled and cannot care for themselves the law states that as a mandated reporter we are required to report the situation to the proper authorities.
What If I Still Don't Know If Therapy Is For Me?
I offer a free 15-minute phone consultation to help you make this decision.
Therapy is a big step in living a meaningful and authentic life. It is an investment in you. I want you to succeed in therapy and understand how it can be difficult to find a therapist you connect with. After our first meeting you are not obligated to continue with me, and if you feel you are in need of a different therapist I will provide referrals for you.
