Fees & Logistics
‘One person looking at the roots of our suffering is good, two people looking at it is better, and two people looking together is best.’ – Thich Nhat Hanh
I offer therapy sessions in-person (in my El Dorado Hills office) as well as online (telehealth) via video conference and phone. Sessions are 50 minutes in length.
I am currently accepting new clients and have morning, evening and Saturday appointments available.

As a licensed psychotherapist, I am considered an out-of-network provider on most PPO insurance plans. Most clients are able to receive partial reimbursement from their insurance company for the cost of our sessions. Many individuals are reimbursed 50-80% of the fee, which means the out of pocket cost ends up being $35-80 per session.
How does it work?
Let me walk you through it.
You will need to take 10 minutes to call your insurance company and ask:
Will you reimburse for mental health service providers that are out of network?
Do I have a deductible to meet before you will reimburse?
Have I met any portion of that deductible yet?
What is the reimbursement rate?
Once you verify your benefits you will be responsible for sessions fees when we meet and then once a month I will provide you with a superbill (also known as a receipt), which you can then submit to your insurance company and they will mail you a check for your reimbursement amount. Some insurance companies have an online portal where you can upload a photo of your superbill and it will be processed relatively quickly/usually within a few days; alternatively you can mail it in. This monthly paperwork process should take you about 5 minutes.
Please reach out with any questions you have about this process. While I cannot answer any question about your specific insurance plan or coverage, I am happy to walk along side you in getting reimbursed for services.
