Frequently Asked Questions
What is your availability for appointments?
I offer in-office appointments in Rancho Cucamonga and Telehealth (video chat) appointments to anyone in the state of California. Although my availability varies, my general hours are 10am-2pm on Tue, Wed & Thur.
What is the cost per session?
My professional fee is $180 per 45-50 minute session. Sometimes in couples therapy, we may agree to schedule 80 minute sessions to allow more time for each partner to engage, at which time the fee is $240.
Do you take Insurance?
I do not accept insurance; however if you are seeking reimbursement for the cost of services from your insurance provider, I'm happy to provide you with a superbill which you can submit to your provider. If you elect not to utilize insurance, you have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate.
Do you offer a sliding scale?
In certain circumstances, I may offer a sliding scale to assist with financial strains. Please contact me directly or schedule a consult to discuss further.
How long does each therapy session last?
Individual therapy sessions are normally 45-50 minutes. Couples sessions can be 45-50 minutes or 80-90 to allow each partner ample opportunity to participate. We will collaborate to determine the length of session ahead of scheduling.
How long will I/we be in therapy?
The length of therapy truly depends on the couple's individual needs and goals and therefore is difficult to predict. Some goals may be achieved in 3 months while others may need a year or more. We can discuss this more in our first session.
What if therapy isn't working?
Therapy is a collaborative process and works best when all parties involved are committed to doing their part. There are no guarantees about what will happen; however rest assured that we will be communicating and measuring progress frequently.
