WHAT IS YOUR THEORETICAL APPROACH IN THERAPY?
I consider myself to be an eclectic psychotherapist. I do not like to push my clients into one box or intervention. I utilize several approaches. Some of my "go-to" approaches are: psychodynamic, relational, attachment based, systems theory, and solution's focused.
DO YOU OFFER SLIDING SCALE RATES?
We have a few slots that we reserve for sliding scale clients, as we feel that everyone should have access to mental health services. These slots are limited, so please inquire if interested. They are not always available.
HOW LONG DOES EACH THERAPY SESSION TAKE?
The first session is 60 minutes. Every other therapy session is 45-53 minutes, depending on insurance or private pay. We will discuss the length of sessions during our first meeting.
HOW MUCH DOES A SESSION COST?
DO YOU PROVIDE IN-PERSON AN/OR TELEHEALTH SESSIONS?
Our office has two offices; one in Fresno and another is Sherman Oaks (LA area). We offer both in-person and telehealth/virtual appointments; depending on availability.
DO YOU ACCEPT INSURANCE?
The cost of a session varies, based on private pay or insurance. If you are using your insurance, you will pay your co-pay (or deductible first, if you have one). If you are private pay here are the rates:
Associate Level Therapist: $100 - $110 (depending on service and type)
Licensed Level Therapist: $115 - $140 (depending on service and type)
Couples Sessions are at the top of the range for both levels of therapist. Some sliding scale spots available for individual therapy only.
Every client will receive a Good Faith Estimate before their first session, so they can get a fair estimate on what their out of pocket costs will look like.
I am proud to serve my community and find it important to accept insurance. At this point we are "in-network" with: Cal-Viva, Health-Net, Cigna, United Healthcare/Optum, Aetna, Meritain Health, MHN, Anthem Medi-Cal, CCAH (Merced County), LA Care, Molina Medi-Cal, and TriCare. I am also happy to create superbills for "out-of-network" clients with PPO insurances,. We also accept private pay clients.
Not all therapists work with everyone insurance. Associates are limited as to what insurances they can accept. We will verify eligibility before your first session.
