My rate is $200 per 50-minute session. This is standard rate in bay area for a licensed mental health professional with 10+ years of experience. I have 12 years of experience in the field, including work at family therapy clinic and school districts. My expertise has garnered me training and teaching in US and overseas, supervising intern therapists.
Family and couple session will go to 75 to 100 minutes depending on the therapeutic needs with the same rate. I do not want to prevent you from benefitting from couple and family work because of different fee though couple and family therapy requires special skills and more work.
I also offer up to 20 minutes free phone consultation prior our formal meeting.
I understand some people may have hardship attending weekly session that they need. Insurance makes service affordable and it is my value to help a variety of people. Currently I accept Anthem Blue Cross. If I am not at your insurance panel, some insurance carrier allows you to choose an out-of-network provider (e.g., a PPO or POS plan). You can pay me the standard fee and your insurance company will reimburse you, I will provide you a monthly super bill. Check with your plan administrator to verify coverage for out-of-network providers and for rates of reimbursement.
Reduced fee services are available depending on the financial needs and available time slots. I want to make service available to a variety of people
Payment is due each session. Cash, check and paypal accepted for payment.
If you do not show up for your scheduled therapy appointment, and you have not notified me at least 24 hours in advance, you will be required to pay the full cost of the session.
