Thanks for wanting to set up an initial meeting. I look forward to getting to know you a bit and seeing how I can help you. In the meantime here are some things you may find helpful.
Do I Have To Wait For You To Reply to Schedule an Appointment?
No. In fact, you can schedule an appointment with me at any time by going to my scheduler website. There you will find a wide option of days and times that I have available for initial meetings. While you are there, you can pick out the one that works best for you and reserve the hour
Is the Initial Meeting a Therapy Session?
While there is a very good chance you will find our initial meeting helpful, it is not designed to be a therapy session. It’s my chance to make sure that I feel I can be helpful to you. More importantly, because you’ve found me online, it’s your chance to meet me in person and get to know me a bit before you decide to work with me.
Can I Make an Appointment for Myself and My Spouse/Boyfriend/Girlfriend/Significant Other?
Absolutely. A lot of the work I do is with couples. Although only one of you needs to make the appointment, I prefer that both of you come to the initial meeting. That way both of you can make sure that you feel comfortable working with me.
Can I Make an Appointment for My Son or Daughter?
My expertise is in working with adults. I do not work with clients who are not college age or older. There are many therapists in the area who specialize in working with children, adolescents, and teens.
Do You Take My Insurance?
For various reasons, I am not an in-network provider for any insurance plans. If you have a PPO plan, some of our work together may be covered however, because policies vary greatly, I’m unable to tell you what amount, if any, your plan will cover for out-of-network psychotherapy. Unfortunately, if you have a HMO plan (including MediCal/LA Care), our work together will not be covered.
