                    What is your hourly rate?
                    My fee is $100 per fifty-minute hour. 
I do offer a free fifteen minute phone consultation
                    so we can determine if we are a good match to work together.

                    Do you offer a sliding scale?
                    I do have several sliding scale spaces available for individuals who would
                    not be able to otherwise participate in therapy.  
                   What if I cannot afford your fee or no sliding scale spots are     

If you are unable to afford my fee I can offer several referrals to low fee
                   counseling centers in the community.
                    Do you accept insurance?
                    Yes, I currently accept Medi-Cal, Anthem Blue Cross and Health Net/MHN. I also can bill as an out of network provider for other
                    insurances. Please contact your insurance company to determine the reimbursement rates
                    for out of network providers.
                   What forms of payment do you accept?
                   I accept Personal Checks, Cash and Credit Cards.  Credit Card payments do require an additional small fee.
