In Psychotherapy, what we call "the frame" is one of the most important parts of the therapeutic relationship as it holds the therapeutic work. Fees, Policies and Forms are an important part of the therapeutic frame. During our first session and during the course of treatment, we will be able to discuss and review about them but here are some tips that you might like to read and consider beforehand:
My regular hourly fee is set at a level comparable to others in the Bay Area with similar levels of education, training, and experience. As my rates are adjusted over time, please call me to discuss my current fee. Know that your fee will be discussed during our Initial Free Phone Consultation.
I only provide sliding scale based on an individual basis and in the case that I have slots available when you call. In case that I could not accommodate more clients at the time that you call or I could not accommodate your financial needs, I will be glad to help you to locate an appropriate referral.
All fees are due at the time of service unless we agree otherwise. I accept cash, check or credit card.
OFFICE HOURS AND CANCELLATION POLICY All sessions are by appointment only. Please, notice that I work in private practice only part-time and I have a few slots (some evenings and weekend) subject to availability. A 48-hour cancellation notice is required for me to be able to re-schedule other clients. The regular fee will be charged if a session is missed or given notice less than 48 hours.
INSURANCE I don't work directly with insurance panels at this time but if you are eligible for out-of-network reimbursement with your insurance company, I will provide you with a receipt of the clinical services for you to submit for reimbursement.
TREATMENT OPTIONS The length of treatment will depend on what you want or need to work on and the goals that you envision to achieve in the course of our work together. I offer a short-term tailored approach of (10-20 sessions) and long-term ongoing services, depending on your needs and the availability I have when you contact me.
I offer regular sessions of 50 minutes but due that I incorporate Body-Psychotherapy Techniques as needed and convenient, longer sessions can also be arranged. For example, a75-90 minutes session in length can be provided for individual, couples and family therapy. (The length of sessions for children up to 12 years old are 50 minutes).
Please call me to inquire and ask any question(s) you might have about what best can apply in your case.
