Frequently Asked Questions
Helping highly sensitive creatives shed the weight of the past,
make peace with the present and celebrate the creation of the future.
Where do you offer sessions?I offer sessions in person in Valencia, CA, about 30 minutes outside Los Angeles, and virtually throughout California. For KAP sessions, I am able to see clients either in Valencia, Santa Monica, CA.
What is your session fee?My fee for sessions are $250 per hour. I do offer some sliding scale spots on a regular basis, please inquire! Additionally, please feel free check out https://openpathcollective.org for a sliding scale directory of therapists ranging from $30-$60 per session for individuals.
How often and for how long do you see clients?In most cases, for new clients I recommend weekly sessions as we are building our therapeutic relationship, discussing history, goals, building a treatment plan, etc. Sessions are 50 minutes, with an occasional EMDR session extending to 90 minutes to give us more time for processing. For EMDR, clients can make lasting progress in as little as 10 sessions. Most of my clients stay with me anywhere from 6 months to a year, sometimes longer depending upon whether or not they have met agreed upon goals, or if they simply want continued support.
What can I expect?During the first few sessions we will discuss the reasons or concerns that bring you to therapy and establish goals that you would like to work on during our time together. In our sessions, you will be invited to experientially explore belief systems, emotions, associated experiences and behaviors that might be holding you back. As we collaborate to support you in reaching your stated objectives, please know that sometimes when it comes to healing, things can get worse before they get better. I work to integrate mindfulness and body-based grounding practices so that clients can leave with coping skills that can help them in and outside of therapy.
Do you accept insurance?I am in-network with Aetna insurance plans in California. For all other plans, I am considered out-of-network. For clients who have PPO or insurance with out-of-network benefits, I am happy to provide super bills for partial reimbursement of session costs once a deductible has been met.
