Fees and Payment Options
|Please note: I can not bill insurance for marital/couple counseling or other non-diagnosable issues, but can consider private pay fee reduction based on your income.|
|I currently accept the following health plans/insurance:|
Medi-cal through Contra Costa Health Plan
(Contra Costa County only)
Beacon Health Options
Blue Shield of California
(and ILWU through Blue Shield)
Kaiser clients can request to see a therapist outside the Kaiser system through Beacon Health Options.
I also accept:
California Victim Compensation Program / VOC
Any PPO as an out-of-network provider
Clients with PPO Insurance may see any provider they choose, although seeing a non-preferred provider may cost somewhat more than a provider that is contracted with your insurance.
Clients with PPO insurance must pay full fee (cash or check) at the start of each session. I can provide a thorough billing statement ( a "super-bill") for you to use for reimbursement of your fees from your insurance company.
|Fees range from $125 for individual adult, child or parent/caregiver sessions to $150 for couple counseling or other family sessions. |
There is a one-time fee of $250 for a Diagnostic Evaluation, which includes provision of a written Treatment Plan.
For those without insurance, or who prefer not to use their insurance, a sliding scale is available depending on your income. The sliding scale ranges from $70 to $125 per 45 minute adult, child or parent session. The fee for the initial Diagnostic Evaluation, which includes provision of a written Treatment Plan, is twice the cost of the individual sessions.
I can provide annual receipts for tax purposes to clients using the sliding scale.
I provide clinical consultation for therapists working with children. The fee is $125 per hour. A discount is available for therapists who provide services mostly to Medi-cal or low-paying clients.
Letters to schools, doctors, courts, etc. can be provided to clients at the hourly rate of $125.
