Do you offer a free consultation?
Yes, contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule a free 15-minute phone consultation. This will give us a chance to discuss what brings you to therapy, the session fee and determine if we are a good fit.
What is the session fee? Do you offer a sliding scale? Do you take insurance?
A 50-minute session is $180
Payment is due at the beginning of each session and can be paid by CashApp, Zelle, credit card or HSA
I do not take insurance. Sliding scale slots are limited and determined on a case-by-case basis.
If you have a PPO plan some insurance companies will reimburse you. I can provide you with an invoice to submit.
Do you offer in person sessions?
All sessions are conducted via video on a HIPAA- secure platform. There are no in-person sessions offered at this time.
Teletherapy allows me to provide my specialized services to those that otherwise would not have access.
My services are available to anyone living in the state of California.
How long does therapy last?
Sometimes people come into therapy to deal with a specific problem and stay to work on other issues. Some people come for a few months, others for a few years. As you progress, we'll collaborate to determine what works best for you.
Meeting on a weekly basis provides continuity while building rapport & trust and this is especially important in the first few months. Each session is 50 minutes. Extended sessions are available by request.
What approaches do you use in treatment?
I use an integrative, holistic approach, depending on your needs as a whole person. The foundation of all my work starts from a collaborative relationship.
Some of the approaches I focus on are Feminist, Social Justice, Person-centered, Trauma-informed, Somatic, Mindfulness.
