frequently asked questions
Q: What are your fees? What forms of payment do you accept?
A: Rachel's fee is $225 per 45 minute session and $350 per 90 min session. Other session lengths (60 min) are billed at a prorated amount. Sara and Maggie's fees are $175/45 min session. We accept credit card, cash, or check and my booking system can securely store credit cards so we can work the full duration of the session without using time to pay for services.
Q: Do you accept insurance?
A: No, but I do provide statements of payment called Superbills that you can submit to your insurance to receive partial reimbursement. You can contact your insurance to ask them what percentage of reimbursement you will receive for an out-of-network provider. Clients are responsible for verifying and understanding the limits of their insurance coverage.
To determine if you have mental health coverage, the first thing to do is check with your insurance carrier. Check your coverage carefully and find the answers to the following questions:
What are my mental health benefits?
What is the coverage amount per therapy session?
How many therapy sessions does my plan cover?
How much does my insurance pay for an out-of-network provider?
Is payment subject to meeting my deductible?
Is approval required from my primary care physician?
Q: Do you offer a sliding scale or discounted services?
A: I have a designated number of slots in my practice devoted to serving families/people in need. Low fee slots are reserved for people in need of trauma treatment that would otherwise not be able to have access to therapy services. Currently, all low fee slots are full. They become available sporadically, so please email me to be added to a waitlist so you can be notified when a slot becomes available.
Q: Where are you located?
A: Our office is located in Thousand Oaks, California.
We also see clients who are California residents for secure video sessions.
