Appointments & Fees
Please call to discuss appointment scheduling. I see clients in my office Tuesday through Friday and my appointment times are very flexible. My hourly rate is $170 per session and a session lasts 50 minutes. I accept payment by cash, check, Discover, Mastercard, Visa and American Express, and require at least 24 hours notice for change or cancellation of appointments. I am no longer accepting most insurance, but if you would like to use your insurance and it is a PPO, I will provide you with a statement that can be used to request reimbursement. I look forward to working with you!
Below are answers to common questions regarding Therapy Sessions and Fees.
Do you take my insurance?
If you have a PPO, then you can go to anyone in or out of network. For people who have a PPO plan, I will provide them with a receipt for services that has all the necessary information necessary to submit directly to their insurance plan (aka a superbill). That way, the insurance will reimburse you directly in accordance with your particular plan.
The only agreement I have continued with an insurance company is with the County of Santa Clara Valley Health Plan (VHP). I will also work with victims of crime via the Vicitms of Crime Program (aka Victim Witness Program).
How often do I/we need to go?
When it makes sense clinically, often as we near termination, sessions can be spaced less frequently.
How many visits?
That being said, since you’re insisting . . . I’ve seen people for as little as one to three visits and others for years. You are unique I’m sure. I can’t pretend to give you an accurate number, especially without knowing you yet, but sight unseen a safe bet would be three to ten visits at least.
How long are meetings?
What’s your earliest/latest appointment time? Lunch hour appointments?

Sorry, no lunch hours unless it’s 11 or 2:30.
