Rates & Insurance

Insurance
Services may be covered in full or in part by your health insurance or employee benefit plan. 
I currently accept the following insurance / reimbursement:

  • California Victim Compensation and Government Claims Board
  • PPO plans that cover "out of network providers" 
  • I am no longer acepting new Blue Shield or MHN clients, except for PPO plans

 Please check your coverage carefully by asking the following questions:

  • Do I have mental health insurance benefits?
  • What is my deductible and has it been met?
  • How many sessions per year does my health insurance cover?
  • What is the coverage amount per therapy session?
  • Is approval required from my primary care physician?
If you have problems clarifying whether my services are covered by your insurance, please contact my billing service, NorCal Medical Billing, at (888) 622-1017.

Free 20-Minute Consult for Prospective Clients

I recognize that therapy is a significant commitment of time and money. I also believe that you will benefit most from a therapist who is a good fit for you. For those reasons, I offer prospective clients a free 20-minute consult by phone or in person. The purpose of the consult is to help determine if the services I offer are likely to meet your needs. This is NOT a therapy appointment. It is an opportunity for you to briefly describe your concerns, discuss how I might work with you, and ask any questions you may have. Following the consult, you may decide to work with me or continue looking for other services. If I do not believe that my areas of expertise will meet your needs, it is my ethical obligation to refer you to another therapist and / or recommend that you continue looking. In these cases, I will do my best to specify what types of services you may need and give you information and resources that you can use to follow up.

Payment
Cash, check and all major credit cards accepted for payment. Credit cards are processed through PayPal on the "Make a Payment" section of this website.

Cancellation Policy
