Whether you are seeking counseling for yourself, your teen, or couples therapy for you and your partner, my mission is to create a comfortable environment where clients can begin working through difficult issues to enhance their overall well-being, regain a sense of purpose or direction in their lives, and help them achieve more satisfying interpersonal relationships.
Each session is 50 minutes long, and typically occurs on a weekly basis. There are times when it is appropriate to meet more or less frequently based on the client’s current needs. The fee per session is $200 for individual sessions and $225 for couples sessions. I am able to offer lower fee services by referring you to one of the associate therapists in my practice who is working under my supervision.
I accept cash, personal checks, or credit cards. If you decide to use credit card there is a 3% credit card processing fee. You will be expected to pay for each session at the time it is held.
I accept PPO health insurance plans as an “out-of-network” provider. I will provide you with a Superbill at the end of each month which you will be able to submit to your insurance company for reimbursement. The insurance company will then reimburse you directly. This means that you will be responsible for paying the full session fee at the time of each scheduled appointment. It is very helpful to check with your insurance company ahead of time to find out what your coverage is for therapy services with an out-of-network provider.
Mental health services may also be covered by your HSA, Flex Plan, or Medical Savings Account.
I uphold a 24-hour cancellation policy. This means that clients must cancel or reschedule an appointment 24 hours in advance or they will be held responsible for paying the standard fee.
This policy does take into account unusual or unexpected circumstances that prevent a client from attending a scheduled session.
To schedule your initial therapy consultation, please contact me at my Hermosa Beach office. The match between client and therapist is a vital component to successful therapy, and I want to make sure that you will receive the most beneficial treatment while you are in my office.
