Do you take insurance?

I am not in network with any insurance companies. If you have a PPO insurance plan I am considered an “out of network” provider and your plan may provide partial reimbursement for our sessions. I subscribe to a service through Reimbursify (https://reimbursify.com/) that allows me to quickly verify your out of network insurance benefits and submit a superbill on your behalf at the beginning of the month for reimbursement of the previous month’s sessions. If you would like to check your out of network benefits or submit a claim, you can click on the link “Use your insurance” at the bottom of the webpage.

Do you offer a free initial consultation?

I offer a free initial 15 minute phone or Zoom consultation to learn more about my services and to be sure I can meet your needs. Please contact me by phone (call/text), email or through the contact page on my website to set up a consultation. 

What is your cancellation policy?

I have a 24 hour cancellation policy for appointments. If you must cancel your appointment please contact me as soon as possible, if it is less than the 24 hour window I will need to charge the full fee for the missed session. 

What telehealth platform do you use?

I use Zoom Pro for the healthcare industry which is HIPAA compliant. 

Do you see clients outside of California?

I can only see clients who have a permanent address in California, I am not licensed in other states. If you have a permanent address in California but are traveling or have a secondary address outside of California I can meet with you. 

Do you have a mailing address?

My mailing address for my practice is:

2525 W. Washington Blvd
Suite 104

What is a Good Faith Estimate? 

A “Good Faith Estimate” is a document that explains how much your medical and mental health care will cost. Under the law, health care providers need to give patients who don’t have insurance or who are not using insurance an estimate of the expected charges for medical services, including psychotherapy services. You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency healthcare services, including psychotherapy services. You can ask your health care provider, and any other provider you choose, for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule a service. If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your Good Faith Estimate, you can dispute the bill. Make sure to save a copy or picture of your Good Faith Estimate. For questions or more information about your right to a Good Faith Estimate, visit www.cms.gov/nosurprises. 

Do you like dogs? 

Yes! I love dogs and my dog Milo will make appearances in our sessions upon request (although he may be napping).
