Fees and Policies

Fees and Policies

My rates are comparable to those of other psychologists in the Mountain View/Palo Alto area at the doctorate (Ph.D.) level.  Fees for assessment and psychotherapy sessions vary based upon the type and length of appointment.  Payment is made at the time of service or prior to service. Receipts can be provided.  Credit card, check or cash payments are accepted.

Cancellation Policy

I understand things come up and appointments may need to be cancelled or rescheduled from time to time.  I request cancellations  48  hours in advance of our appointment, or you will be required to pay the full cost of the session.

Insurance

I am an out-of-network provider.   If you intend to use your insurance for reimbursement, I recommend you contact your plan prior to our first session to ask about your psychotherapy benefits.  Many health insurance policies provide some coverage for mental health treatment.  I am considered an “out-of-network” provider, which means that your insurance company may reimburse you directly for some portion of the fees you have paid to me.  I will provide you with a receipt and will also help you receive the benefits to which you are entitled; however you, not your insurance company, are ultimately responsible for full payment of fees.
