Fees & Insurance

The following are answers to common questions about payment.


Q: "Do you take insurance?"

I currently work with L.A. Cares (MediCal/Beacon). Please contact me with your insurance information so I can have our office staff verify your level of coverage. You can contact your insurance company to determine your coverage, or we can call them for you to help you get started. Please feel free to call me with questions about this so I can put you in touch with our administrative staff who will help you figure it out.

Q: "What forms of payment do you accept?"

We accept Visa, Master Card, Discover, check, cash or sushi. (Just kidding about the sushi! I wish!) Please make checks payable to Change Within Reach, Inc.

Q: "How much do you charge?"

My rate is $140.00 per 50-minute session for individual, couple, or family therapy. I offer a sliding scale for those who need it, subject to income verification and appointment availability. I believe therapy should be affordable, and will do my best to help you find a way to get the help you need. If you need help, you need help, right?

Q: "Do you offer lower rates for College students?"

I believe education is very important. I offer special rates for individual therapy for currently enrolled community college, undergraduate, and postgraduate students. If you are in school, I salute you, and I really do understand the pressure (I spent a decade in university and graduate school myself).  Please call me to find out more about rates for students.

If you or someone you love needs help, please give me call so we can talk about it.
