An initial consult via phone is free of charge. The fee per 60-minute session is $175 for individuals and $200 for couples. Extended 90-minute sessions are available for both individuals and couples. Reduced-fee (sliding scale) appointments are reserved for patients for whom current psychotherapy fees in Los Angeles pose an impediment to care. This office is strongly committed to access to mental healthcare. If sliding scale spaces are not available at the time of your inquiry and you are experiencing financial difficulty, a list of referrals to excellent low-fee community counseling centers will be provided. Please inquire for details.
The office will gladly prepare a superbill to submit to your insurance company for reimbursement. As a small private practice, I am an out-of-network provider and do not process claims for patients. Services may be covered in full or in part by your health insurance or employee benefit plan. Please determine your coverage by asking your insurer the questions below. In addition, individual mental health counseling is eligible for reimbursement through an FSA (flexible spending account), HSA (health savings account), or HRA (health reimbursement account). Please note that couples or marital counseling is seldom reimbursable.
- Do I have mental health insurance benefits?
- What is my deductible and has it been met?
- How many sessions per year does my health insurance cover?
- What is the coverage amount per therapy session?
- Is approval required from my primary care physician?
Please note: If you do not show up for your scheduled therapy appointment, and have not notified the office by text or phone call within a full 24 hours prior, the full cost of the session is due. Late cancellations prevent others from access to limited session times. Thank you for your understanding.
With any questions, please contact the office for further information.
