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 via CashApp, Zelle, credit card or HSA.
I accept MHN [Healthnet] insurance.
Out-Of-Network (OON) Insurance
If you have a PPO plan some insurance companies will reimburse you for services with an OON provider. I can provide you with a superbill/invoice to submit.
DO YOU OFFER A FREE CONSULTATION?
Yes, contact me at email@example.com 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.
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?
Often people come to therapy to deal with a specific problem and stay to work on other issues. Some stay 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?
The foundation of all my work starts from a collaborative relationship. I use an integrative, holistic, weight inclusive, anti-racist, anti-diet approach.
I focus my work through a Feminist, Social Justice, Person-centered, Trauma-informed, Somatic, Mindfulness lens.
What the heck does that mean?
