Our fees are based on the usual and customary rates for psychologists in the Bay Area. A limited number of sliding scale slots are available based on financial need. Payment is made at the time of session by check, cash, or credit card. Please contact us for current fees.
We accept Lyra Health. We do not accept other types of insurance directly. However, many insurance companies provide reimbursement for out-of-network psychotherapy services. Upon request, we are happy to provide statements that can be used to seek reimbursement from your insurer. We recommend that you contact your insurance company to inquire about the availability of reimbursement for out-of-network psychotherapy. Here are some questions that may be helpful to ask your insurance:
Do I have mental health insurance benefits?
What is my deductible and has it been met?
How many sessions per year does my health insurance cover?
What is the coverage amount per out of network therapy session, CPT code 90834?
How do I access the form(s) needed to submit a request for reimbursement?
If you would like assistance obtaining out of network reimbursement, you might find Better to be a good resource. Better will submit your out of network claims in exchange for a percentage of the reimbursements. You can find out more information by visiting their website here.
If you do not show up for your scheduled therapy appointment, and you have not notified us at least 24 hours in advance, you will be required to pay the full cost of the session.
Discussions with licensed psychologists are confidential, and we are legally required to keep information you disclose to us confidential. However, there are certain circumstances under which we are legally required to break confidentiality. These circumstances include:
If we believe that you are in imminent danger of harming yourself or another person.
If we suspect abuse or neglect of a child, elder, or dependent adult.
If we believe that you are unable to care for yourself or attend to your basic needs.
If we are court-ordered to release information as part of a legal proceeding.
Additionally, if you are currently seeing other medical providers (e.g., primary care physician, psychiatrist, etc.) we may request that you sign a written release of information to allow us to coordinate care with your other providers.
