We do have a limited number of sliding-scale spots available for those who can not afford our standard fees – please ask about these lower fee spots and we will discuss your financial situation and what is affordable and sustainable for you.
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 Simple Practice – a secure and confidential platform designed for health professionals.
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.
