Appointments and Fees

Therapist in San Jose 95125 95008

 

Appointments:

Counseling appointments are available on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday in my counseling office in Campbell. A limited number of evening appointments are available. New clients usually need to start with a daytime appointment with the possibility of moving into an evening slot when one becomes available. The online scheduling calendar will allow you to see all available appointments in the coming weeks.

 

Fees:

$170 per session (45-50 minutes) of individual psychotherapy/counseling

$185 per session (45-50 minutes) of family or couples psychotherapy/counseling

$275 per session (75 minutes) extended session for those preferring to “dig deep” or preferring longer, less frequent sessions for convenience

Fees are collected at the time of service. Cash, checks, credit cards, Health Savings Accounts, and Flexible Spending Accounts can be used.

It’s normal to feel ambivalent about starting therapy – about spending money on yourself and about confronting difficult feelings and issues. I want to help you create long-lasting changes; it’s not always easy, but it can transform your life!

 

 

Insurance:

I am not directly contracted with any health insurance plans. As a provider through your insurance plan, I can’t  provide the level of service and confidentiality that I value. I know because I tried!

Together, you and I will make decisions about your therapy rather than having your insurance company dictate the amount and type of therapy you receive. Working independently, I don’t have to compromise on the quality of services that I provide to my clients.

If you would like to use out-of-network benefits on your PPO health insurance plan, please let me know. I’m happy to file an insurance claim for you as a courtesy and your insurance plan will reimburse you directly according to your plan benefits. FYI: Filing an insurance claim means that I need to assign you a mental health diagnosis.

 

 

New Clients:

Using the secure client portal to make a counseling appointment for yourself or your child (13 years or older) is usually the most efficient way to get started. After you request an appointment, you will receive an email confirmation and a link to complete the new client forms through the client portal.

 

 

Current Clients:

Log into the secure client portal using the email address I have on file to view upcoming appointments, change or schedule appointments. If you experience a problem with the online scheduling calendar or have questions before scheduling, please feel free to call the office at 408-982-6535 or email the Campbell office at sharon@sharonmartincounseling.com.
