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. You can schedule your first appointment by clicking on the Request Appointment button below.

 

Fees:

$185 per session (50 minutes) of individual psychotherapy/counseling

$195 per session (50 minutes) of family or couples psychotherapy/counseling

Fees are collected at the time of service. Cash, checks, credit cards, Health Savings Accounts, and Flexible Spending Accounts can be used. And while you do need to keep a credit card on file, if you choose to pay by cash or check at the time of your appointment, you may take a $5 per session discount.

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 we commit to meeting weekly for at least the first 4 weeks. After that, we can discuss whether your goals can be met by meeting less frequently.

 

 

Insurance:

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

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.

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