Child Therapy San Diego
Sessions are $ 130.00 per individual session and $ 150 per conjoint or family sessions.
Please note I do not take court ordered family cases, high conflict divorce cases or provide custody recommendations.
The fee for Supervision and Consultations is $ 100 per hour.
I offer a sliding scale to a specific number of clients. Finances are an important aspect of the treatment, please feel free to discuss it with me in person.
Duration of sessions:
Sessions are 45-55 minutes long.
Parenting program package:
The parenting program is tailored to your needs and it consists of four educational meetings of 90 minutes each, one follow up meeting of 60 minutes, and two 30 minutes phone consultations, a total of hours of 8 hours of instruction, implementation of the parenting plan, follow up discussions and support. Please inquire by email if you are interested and I will provide you with details and pricing.
Initial Sessions or Parent's intake:
It is important that we, parents and therapist, take the time to talk thoroughly about your child's history, needs and initial treatment goals. The parent's intake process might take a few sessions prior to the beginning of the child's treatment.
I offer a free of charge face-to-face 20 minutes initial consultation to parents and clients who are considering me as their therapist. I believe that it is important that you feel confident that I am the right professional for your child prior to us establishing professional ties.
Please be advised that this will be a brief and informal meeting and that the therapist's legal implications toward the client's treatment would only start after the formal Consent to Treatment is received and my Office Policy fully understood and established.
Please note that 20 minutes is a reasonable amount of time for a brief initial contact. If you would like to discuss the current issues more in depth and to know my initial initial impressions of the case I suggest us meeting for 45 minutes. The fee for a 45 minutes consultation is $ 100.
If you already feel confident that you would like to work with me contact me mentioning that you would like to schedule our first intake session.
Methods of payment:
I accept cash and personal checks.
If you would like to use a credit or debit card you will be responsible for an additional processing fee of 3%.
- TriCare - Military Families WELCOME!
- PPO plans: If you don't have one of the insurances I accept but you have a PPO plan you might be partially reimbursed for the cost of the treatment.
That is because most PPO plans allow the client to seek treatment with professionals out-of-network or not contracted with them. If that is your case I can give you a receipt or "superbill" that you will submit to your insurance in order to be reimbursed.
Please inquire if you have out-of-network benefits for Behavioral Health (Psychotherapy) and get to understand the benefits of your insurance plan before contacting me.
Some important questions to ask your insurance provider are:
What is the deductible for your policy (amount of bills you must pay before your insurance provides coverage)?
What amount or percentage your insurance will pay/reimburse you for each session?
What is/is there the maximum number of sessions allowed per calendar year?
What is/is there the maximum amount paid for sessions per calendar year?
Which diagnoses they cover (you will need to be given a diagnosis in order to receive reimbursement for therapy services)?
