Fees and Insurance

Fees:

Fees for an 80 minute initial intake session and a 50 minute clinical hour are maintained below Bay Area averages for a senior licensed clinical psychologist with over 20 years of experience. Sliding scale slots are available as well, depending on income level and need. Please contact me for current rates. Payments are due at each session, unless we make another agreement as we begin our work together. Payments can be by check or cash, or using a credit card through the Paypal portal (see Payments).

I also provide free psychotherapy services to veterans and their families through giveanhour.org – if you are a veteran or family member, please see their website for current availability.

About Insurance

I am not “in network” on any insurance panels. However, many PPO’s and other health benefit plans provide reimbursement for psychotherapy services by out of network licensed providers. I provide a monthly “Superbill” or statement for those clients using insurance so they are reimbursed directly for part or all of their sessions, depending on their plan. Speak with your health insurance representative and ask about your plan’s benefits for mental health services, including the specific language “out of network licensed psychologist” when you ask about reimbursement rates, as these can vary according to type of license and level of training.
