My fees for psychotherapy are $140 for individuals and $180 for couples or family therapy. I do offer some low-fee options for those with limited income. In the state of California PPO and POS plans must pay for any licensed provider. I am not an in-network provider for insurance but I am committed to helping you obtain reimbursement for your mental health treatment through your insurer.
Many insurance companies will fully or partially reimburse psychotherapy services for out-of-network providers. I am happy to provide clients with a statement of all services provided that can be submitted for reimbursement from an insurance company. If this is of interest to you, please call your insurance provider to check on the specifics of your coverage.
Important questions to ask:
Do I have mental health benefits?
What is the benefit for out-of-network providers?
What is my deductible? Has it been met? When is the beginning of my plan year?
Is there a limit to the number of sessions my plan covers?
Is a referral required from my primary care doctor?
Payment & Cancellation
Payment for services is due at the time services are provided. I accept cash, checks, venmo or apple pay.
Please be courteous and provide at least 48-hours advanced notice of any appointment cancellation. I offer one free same day cancellation because I know that life happens. For additional same day cancellations, you will be charged a $75 fee for the missed appointment.
Good Faith Estimate
You have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much your medical and mental health care will cost.
Under the law, health care providers need to give patients who don’t have insurance or who are not using insurance an estimate of the expected charges for medical services, including psychotherapy services.
You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency healthcare services, including psychotherapy services.
You can ask your health care provider, and any other provider you choose, for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule a service.
If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your Good Faith Estimate, you can dispute the bill. Make sure to save a copy or picture of your Good Faith Estimate.
