Payments & Insurance.
Over 20 years of experience in the field of relationship counselling and coaching.
In-Person Sessions are available at our Hermosa and Century City locations. Virtual sessions can be provided for clients who reside in California.
I provide free 20 min phone consultation during which you can learn more about me and the work I do as well as ask any questions you might have.
My work is goal oriented and we create comprehensive plan during our 2-3 session which allows us to move in the directions of your goals quickly and effectively.
My psychotherapy out-of network fee is $350 per 55 minutes session.
Please contact me to discuss my psychological assessment and third-party reproduction consultation fees.
I am an out-of network provider provider for several insurance companies, please call to check on your coverage.
For all other insurances, we are out-of-network providers, which means we can provide you or submit on your behalf a superbill which will include fees that you paid and your diagnosis. This means that you are responsible for your fee at the time of the appointment and at the end of the month we can submit a superbill to your insurance company after which the reimbursement will be sent to you directly.
Psychotherapy sessions are often covered in part by PPO health insurance plans. Please call your insurance company to verify your specific coverage. The following are some questions to consider:
Do I have mental/behavioral health insurance benefits?
What is my deductible and has it been met?
What is my copay for in-person and video session?
How many sessions per year does my health insurance cover?
What is the coverage amount per therapy session for an out-of-network provider?
The decision to use your insurance or not rests on you. However, there are some important points that you need to know. Insurance companies require your mental health practitioner to provide a diagnosis in order for your sessions to be covered by insurance. This diagnosis will become part of your medical record. Insurance companies require your mental practitioner to maintain detailed notes of every session including your clinical assessment, treatment goals, and progress in therapy. The insurance company can request and obtain your records including notes in order to audit them.
If you choose not to use your insurance and opt for a private pay option, your mental health practitioner will maintain minimal clinical notes that do not need to contain diagnosis that can only be released under a court order.
Please notify us if you need to cancel within 48-hour of your booked appointment.
If you have not notified the office at least 48 hours in advance, cancelation fee will apply.
