Support for Your Journey through Life Transitions
I provide short and long-term individual therapy as well as group therapy. Individual sessions are 50 minutes in length and group sessions are usually 1 hour and 30 minutes. Appointments are available during day, evening and Saturday hours. My office is in the Bixby Knolls area in Long Beach.
My regular fee for therapy is $100 for a 50-minute session of individual therapy. Group rates are set at the time of the group-screening interview. This fee is to be paid at the beginning of each session by cash or check. I reserve a percentage of my appointments for sliding scale clients. I will let you know, upon request, if any of these spaces are available. Consultation sessions are free as it is important for you to work with a therapist with whom you feel comfortable.
I currently accept both Employee Assistance Program (EAP) benefits and Managed Care benefits from ComPsych and I am a provider in CIGNA Behavioral Health of California, Inc.'s network. Additionally, some other insurance policies will cover out-of-network providers.I suggest you contact your insurance provider ahead of time and find out if they reimburse for psychotherapy and if you can choose your own out-of network therapist. If so, full payment is still paid at the beginning of each session, and I provide you with a monthly invoice to submit to your insurance company for reimbursement at their rate.
If you are considering beginning therapy, please contact me at (562) 439-5117 to schedule a complimentary telephone or in-person consultation as an opportunity to ask about my training, experience, and style of therapy.
