Therapist in San Jose 95125 95008

 

Online Counseling Appointments

All of my appointments are conducted online via a confidential video platform (similar to Zoom). Please note that although you won’t be coming to my San Jose-area office, I can still only work with clients who reside in California due to state licensing requirements.

 

Fees

$190 per session (50 minutes) of individual psychotherapy/counseling

Fees are collected at the time of service via a credit card. Health Savings Accounts and Flexible Spending Accounts can be used.

 

Insurance

I am not contracted with any health insurance plans. Therefore, fees will be collected at the time of service and cannot be billed to your health insurance first.

If you have a PPO type plan, I am considered an out-of-network provider. With most PPO plans, I can submit a claim for you as a courtesy to help make it easier for you to obtain reimbursement. Your insurance plan will then reimburse you directly according to your benefits for outpatient mental health services. Please note that filing an insurance claim means that I need to assign you a mental health diagnosis.

You can use FSA or HSA funds to pay for therapy as it is generally an allowable medical expense.

 

New Clients

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’s an investment in yourself!

In my experience, you will achieve the best results when you commit to meeting weekly for at least the first 4-6 weeks. After that, we can discuss whether your goals can be met by meeting less frequently.

 

Schedule an Appointment

  • You can schedule an appointment using my online calendar. Click on the button below to view my schedule and choose a time that works for you. After you request an appointment, you will receive an email confirmation and a link to complete the new client forms through the client portal. Again, clients must reside in California.

 

  • If there aren’t any appointments available, please email me and ask to be added to the waiting list. Usually the wait is just a few weeks and if I have a cancellation, I may be able to get you started sooner.
