Frequently Asked Questions
Update – I am currently available for new clients throughout the state of CA and OR. All therapy sessions are by held remotely through a secure video platform or phone. Outdoor ecotherapy sessions available on a limited basis to regular weekly clients.
Where do you offer therapy services? Due to the current recommendations around the pandemic, all sessions are being offered remotely through HIPAA secure video platforms or phone for the foreseeable future. I offer limited options for outdoor ecotherapy as an addition to virtual sessions for regular weekly clients.
How much does therapy cost? I charge $225 for individual sessions and $250 for couple sessions, all at 50 minutes length. Extended outdoor ecotherapy sessions and expressive arts therapy sessions are available on a limited basis and will be charged at the prorated rate.
Do you accept insurance? I do not accept insurance for my services, however some insurance providers may offer reimbursement for out-of-network providers. I am happy to provide a monthly super bill for you to submit to your insurance for reimbursement. Please do confirm that your insurance provides reimbursement for out-of-network providers before we begin working together.
How often do I need to come to therapy? I ask clients to commit to weekly therapy sessions for 50 minutes. These sessions offer a deep dive into a theme, emotional state, or experience, with the possibility of exploring through different modalities (art making, journey work, hypnosis etc). Occasional extended sessions give us time to spend together through outdoor ecotherapy, or to move between several expressive arts modalities. These sessions can be quite expansive! So they are considered an adjunct to regular weekly sessions.
We will work together to find a regular time and continue to meet at that time. This allows you to build a regular practice into your week of setting aside time *just for you*. It also gives you the space and time needed for the deeper work of transformation and healing. It’s a sacred space. We’ll create that together.
What is your cancellation policy? I hold a 24 hour cancellation policy, so that if you need to cancel you may do so up to 24 hours before your session. Additionally, I allow up to 4 cancellations in a year (not including times when I am away). Otherwise you will be charged the full fee for your missed session. This allows you to create a weekly ritual to do the deeper healing work of therapy. This also allows me to create a sustainable business practice and show up as my most resourced self to support you.
What session times do you have available? I am available Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays. Scheduling tends to change fast during this time, so the best way to figure that out is to set up a phone consultation. If we decide to work together, I’ll reserve a weekly spot for you then!
What is a “Good Faith Estimate”? You have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much your medical care will cost. Under the law, health care providers need to give clients who don’t have insurance, or who are not using insurance, an estimate of the bill for medical items and services.You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency items or services. You can ask your health care provider, and any other provider you choose, to give you 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.
