FEES + INSURANCE
For individual adults, couples, families, adolescents and children, my fee is:
- $125 per 50-minute session
If you cannot afford my full fee, I also reserve a limited amount of slots for people who pay a reduced fee. Please call to inquire about sliding scale rate availability.
Session fees are due at the time of the session and are payable by cash or check made out to "Tree of Life Healing."
Although I accept private pay only, many PPO insurance plans will reimburse for some of the cost of therapy delivered by an out-of-network provider. I can make what's called a "superbill" available for you to submit to your insurance company, upon request.
If you require a therapist who in your insurance network or provides a very low fee, I recommend that you call your insurance company for a list of providers or you take a look at this blog post for local resources that may meet your needs.
frequently asked questions
What do the terms "M.A." and "MFT Intern" mean? M.A. stands for Master of Arts and MFT Intern stands for Marriage and Family Therapist Intern. An MFT Intern holds a master's degree in psychology – earned in two to three years – and is working toward becoming a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT). MFT Interns gain clinical experience during a graduate school practicum – which spans one year – and continue to gain clinical experience post-grad for a total of 3,000 hours (which commonly takes three to six years to complete.) MFT Interns also must pass a California Law and Ethics exam while accruing experience hours. MFT licensure culminates with the passage of the California Clinical Exam.
What are your treatment orientations? Some terms to describe my treatment orientation include: Existential, Humanistic, Somatic, Sensorimotor, Integrative, Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy, Transpersonal, Relational, Emotionally Focused, Interpersonal Neurobiology, Attachment Focused, Buddhist Psychology and Trauma Focused.
Are you accepting of alternative lifestyles? Yes. My approach is sex positive, LGBTQIA affirmative and body positive. I'm also accepting of alternative styles of parenting including attachment parenting, non-violent parenting, home schooling, unschooling, choosing to avoid vaccines and utilizing Eastern healing practices (e.g. Traditional Chinese Medicine, homeopathy, etc.) for children.
Do you work weekends to accommodate people's work schedules? Yes, I do. Please call to inquire about current weekend availability.
