Rates & Insurance

Rates

The fee for an individual session is $160.  Due to the many income changes and job losses that have been occurring as the result of the current COVID-19 pandemic, I have reopened my sliding scale availability.  This is what the sliding scale fee schedule looks like (with take-home yearly pay on the left and salary-commensurate hourly session rates on the right):

15,000 (and lower)  → 30

20,000 → 40

25,000 → 50

30,000 → 60

35,000 → 70

40,000 → 80

45,000 → 90

50,000 → 100

55,000 → 110

60,000 → 120

65,000 → 130

70,000 → 140

75,000 → 150

80,000 + → 160

Please note that spots below $100 are limited and are currently full.  I never ask for any kind of income verification, and I take people at their word.

Insurance

PLEASE NOTE THAT MEDI-CAL SPOTS ARE CURRENTLY FULL.  I WILL UPDATE THIS SECTION AT WHATEVER POINT THIS CHANGES.  IF YOU HAVE ANOTHER INSURANCE AND WANT TO USE YOUR OUT OF NETWORK BENEFITS, SCROLL TO THE BOTTOM OF THIS SECTION FOR INFO 🙂

I am in-network with Medi-Cal for San Francisco residents.  That means that if you qualify for Medi-Cal or Healthy San Francisco, your insurance should entirely cover your sessions with me.  Please call to inquire about current openings as these spots fill up quickly.

Here’s what to do to start seeing me with your Medi-Cal insurance if you have MediCal with San Francisco: Call the central access line (BHAC – Behavioral Health Access Center) at 415-255-3737. When you call, you’ll first speak with an eligibility worker who will verify your insurance. Then you’ll receive a call back from one of the BHAC clinicians who will ask you some questions to make sure that you meet the criteria for specialty mental health.  You can tell the clinician that you would like to be placed with me.  This needs to be done two weeks prior to our first scheduled session.

If you want to use your MediCal to see me and you live in another CA county (not San Francisco County), call the main MediCal line at 800-541-5555 to get the ball rolling.  Please note that if you are not a resident of San Francisco and you have MediCal as a secondary insurance, you may need to be denied coverage by your primary insurance before your MediCal can kick in to cover your sessions, so call your primary insurance first to inquire about that.  The number should be on your card.

Want to use your insurance, but it’s not Medi-Cal?  Try this: Call the number on the back of your insurance card and ask whether your plan will reimburse you for therapy sessions with an out-of-network provider. If the answer is yes, then that means that you would be responsible for the cost of each session upfront, and then I would provide you with a document on a monthly basis (already filled out for you!) to submit to your insurance for partial reimbursement. So the total cost of therapy works out to a small copay for you, and you get checks in the mail!  Make sure you ask whether there is a deductible you need to meet before you can be reimbursed.

Payment

I accept cash, check and all major credit cards as forms of payment. I also accept payment via PayPal and you can pay directly on my site on this page.

Cancellation Policy

If you are unable to attend a session, please make sure you cancel at least 48 hours beforehand. Otherwise, you may be charged for the full rate of the session.  Please note that any late cancellations as the result of illness or unexpected privacy-related concerns during the current COVID-19 crisis will not be charged.

Any Other Questions

Please contact me for any additional questions you may have. I look forward to hearing from you!
