Services Offered, Fees and Insurance Issues


I offer services for both individuals and groups.  Individual sessions may be held one or more times per week.  Sessions that last longer than 45 -50 minutes may also be scheduled as appropriate. 


The only insurance company with which I am in-network is Optum.  Optum provides mental health coverage for a couple of other insurance companies including Sutter Select and United Behavioral Health.  If you're not sure, take a look at the back of your insurance card; it should list the carrier covering psychotherapy.  I allot a limited portion of my practice to patients Optum.  At this time, I have a waitlist and am not adding additional names.  

If you have a PPO plan (other than Optum, please see above), I will provide you with a Superbill at the end of each month. The Superbill contains all the information required by insurance in order to receive reimbursement.  Please check with your plan to find out the amount of the reimbursement for out-of-network care.  

Please note that I am neither a Medi-Care nor a Medi-Cal provider.  




$200 for the initial appointment.

$160 per 50-minute session.

$60 per group therapy session (please contact me to find out which groups are starting soon).

Reports, paperwork, calls related to issues other than scheduling will be billed at a prorated fee.


Cash, checks, debit and credit cards are accepted.  Payment is due at the time of service and balances over 30 days may be charged a fee.
