I am committed to providing affordable therapy to clients from all walks of life. For this reason, I keep my fees well below the local average while also providing 60-minute sessions instead of the standard 50-minute sessions. In addition, our first meeting will be 120 minutes to provide adequate time for a full assessment of your concerns and treatment goals. Please see below for current rates:
Individual: $125.00/60 minutes
Couples: $140.00/60 minutes
Family (3 or more): $180.00/60 minutes
Parent Consultation: $140.00/60 minutes
Business Consulting: $225.00/60 minutes
Although I no longer work as an in-network provider with insurance plans, I am happy to provide you with the necessary documentation to submit a claim for out-of network reimbursement. Feel free to call your insurance carrier and ask them how much percentage of sessions they cover for an out-of-network provider.
In the state of California, licensed Marriage and Family Therapists (MFTs) must hold a masters degree in psychology, have completed 3000 hours of clinical experience with weekly supervision, and passed two rigorous exams. All this training and practical experience prepares MFTs for treating the emotional and relational ailments of individuals, couples and families.
A good rule of thumb is that you should feel some relief (however small) within 24-48 hours of your first session. Really being listened to can be a powerful, potentially life-changing experience. If you leave your therapist’s office feeling worse and more confused most of the time and these feelings don’t lift after a couple of days, please bring this up with her.
But, I also want to remind you that you are a human being not a car coming in for an oil change. It took you years to get unwell, so expecting to be fixed in a few sessions places unnecessary pressure on you.
