Where is your office located?
My office is located in the city of Ventura, CA. I will provide you with more information about our office location prior to your first session.
How often are sessions?
I typically schedule weekly sessions initially, however, based on your ability, needs, and desires, we may decide more or less frequently works better for you.
How do i pay and how long are sessions?
All payments are due the day of each session, and I accept cash and credit cards. If you decide to pay with a credit card, your card will be automatically charged the night of our session. I have appointment times on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays in both the mornings and afternoons. Sessions are 50 minutes long.
Do you take insurance?
I do not take insurance directly. I am what is considered an "out of network provider" which means, that if you have a PPO plan, you can sometimes get reimbursement for our therapy sessions. Many insurance plans provide out-of-network mental health coverage. I recommend calling the number on the back of your insurance card to ask about your out of network mental health benefits. Here is a guide to help you ask if your plan provides this coverage when you call.
I provide everyone with a monthly statement a.k.a. a "superbill" which you can submit to your insurance company for reimbursement discussed above, if you decide to seek reimbursement; there are pros and cons to doing this for most people, and I would be happy to discuss my experience on your consultation call.
If you have a Health Savings Account (HSA) or “flex account” through your employer, you may be able to receive reimbursement from that account.
There are many options for therapy, and affordability shouldn’t be the reason you don’t get support. If you are uninsured and need lower fee counseling, Open Path Therapy Collective is one place to start.
