Availability and Scheduling
I am accepting new self-pay clients. My insurance practice is currently full and I am not accepting new insurance clients at this time.
I see weekly clients Monday and Tuesday with appointment times between 9am and 4:30pm. I see established clients on 2nd and 4th Wednesday and Friday afternoons. I do not have evening or weekend availability.
My fee is $150 for a 50-minute individual session and $225 for a 75-minute partners session.
For self-pay clients, I offer a complimentary 30-minute in-person consultation for us to get to know each other and to ensure a good fit for ongoing sessions.
My insurance practice is currently full and I am not accepting new insurance clients at this time. Please check back for updates.
I accept Blue Shield and Magellan/Kaiser Permanente under provider contract. I also accept out of network benefits from other plans, including Cigna, United Behavioral Health, and Blue Cross.
If you'd like to use your insurance, I'll verify coverage directly with your provider to give you a sense of coverage, co-pays, and deductibles. To begin this process, send an email to email@example.com with:
- The name your insurance has on file
- Your date of birth
- The address your insurance has on file
- Your insurance policy number
- Any group number associated with your policy
- Any authorization number
Insurance verification usually takes 3-5 business days.
I'm not the right fit for every client, and I don't always have availability. Here are other providers I know and trust.
