Questions and Answers
How do I contact you?
Please call 714-790-4066 if you would like to consult or schedule an appointment. I do not text message or email given that both pose risk to client confidentiality.
What services do you offer?
I offer in-person individual and family psychotherapy, as well as psychodiagnostic assessment services; I am not offering telehealth therapy or testing appointments at this time. I similarly provide on and off-site consultative services and workshops for fellow clinicians, agencies, institutions, groups, and practices.
Do you take insurance?
I do not take insurance at this time. All services are considered "out-of-pocket," meaning that fees are directly charged to clients in their totality. However, I can provide superbills (summaries of paid services somewhat similar to invoices) for you to submit to your insurance provider. Some insurance providers offer reimbursement coverage for claims outlined on superbills. Fortunately, I have worked with a number of clients who have received 60% to 100% reimbursement. Please contact the benefits or consumer phone line on the back of your insurance card to determine if your plan accepts out-of-network services. Inquiring regarding your deductible and rate of reimbursement for out-of-network psychotherapy or psychodiagnostic testing may better clarify the anticipated cost of services for you. If seeking a psychotherapist or psychodiagnostic evaluator within your network, it may be helpful to similarly contact the number on the back of your insurance card in order to request a list of in-network referrals.
How do I contact the California Board of Psychology?
I earnestly invite open communication; please inform me of any concerns you may have over the course of treatment. You always have the right to contact the Board of Psychology should you have any questions or complaints regarding the practice of psychotherapy.
