What forms of payment do you accept?

We take checks, cash or credit cards at the time of your meeting.

Do you take insurance?

We do not take insurance. But we can give you a bill once a month that lists your sessions and the associated charges that you can submit to your insurance company. Some insurance companies will offer partial reimbursement for out-of-network providers. But you are responsible for payment up front and we do not communicate directly with insurance companies.

Do you offer sessions via Skype/Facetime? 

We offer video sessions for California residents through www.doxy.me – a secure and confidential platform designed for health professionals. If we have a scheduled session you can connect with Alexander Warnow, LMFT here.

How many sessions do I need?

There is no predetermined length of time that we work together. Some people find that learning some tools and gaining some insight are accomplished in just a few sessions. Others prefer to work together for years. Regardless, we will check-in regularly to see how you feel you are progressing and what feels right to you.

Will this work for me to get over my problems?

We certainly hope we can help – but we can not make any guarantees. We have helped many people lead better lives. Ultimately, you are the one that has to do the work – the more effort you put in the more you will get out of it.

What is your cancellation policy?

We ask for 48 hours notice if you need to cancel an appointment.  If you do not give 48 hours notice we do charge the full fee for the session if we can’t find another time that week to meet.

What is your privacy policy?  

We keep all information about our sessions (including the fact that you are or have been in therapy with me) strictly confidential in accordance with the Ethical Principles of the American Psychological Association. The law also protects the privacy of all communications between us. These laws and guidelines become null only when a client expresses a serious intent to inflict life-threatening harm upon him/herself or someone else, or if there is likelihood of abuse of a minor, an elderly person, or a disabled person. Situations like this have rarely arisen in our practice. Should a situation of this nature occur, we would make every effort to discuss it with you before taking any action.
