Child, Adolescent and Family Therapy - Parenting Education

 

Child Therapy San Diego

My Fees
Sessions:
$ 120.00 per individual or conjoint sessions.

My reconciliation therapy fee is $ 140.00 per session and it does not include the writing of reports or the communication with Court personnel.

Sliding scale: 
I offer a sliding scale to a specific number of clients. Finances are an important aspect of the treatment, please feel free to discuss it with me in person.

Duration of sessions:
Sessions are between 45-55 minutes long.

Parenting program: 
The parenting program is tailored to your needs and it consists of four educational meetings of 90 minutes each, one follow up meeting of 60 minutes, and two 30 minutes phone consultations, a total of hours of 6 hours of instruction, implementation of the parenting plan, follow up discussions and support.  Please inquire by email if you are interested and I will provide you with details and pricing. 

Initial Sessions or Parent's intake:
It is important that we, parents and therapist, take the time to talk thoroughly about your child's history, needs and initial treatment goals. The parent's intake process might take a few sessions prior to the beginning of the child's treatment. 

Methods of payment:
I accept cash and personal checks. 
If you would like to use a credit or debit card you will be responsible for an additional processing fee of 3%.

Insurances accepted:
  • TriCare - Military Families WELCOME!
  • MHN - Managed Health Network

PPO plans: 
If you don't have one of the insurances I accept but you have a PPO plan you might be partially reimbursed for the cost of the treatment.
That is because most PPO plans allow the client to seek treatment with professionals out-of-network or not contracted with them. If that is your case I can give you a receipt or "superbill" that you will submit to your insurance in order to be reimbursed. 
Please inquire if you have out-of-network benefits for Behavioral Health (Psychotherapy) and get to understand the benefits of your insurance plan before contacting me.

Some important questions to ask your insurance provider are:
What is the deductible for your policy (amount of bills you must pay before your insurance provides coverage)?
What amount or percentage your insurance will pay/reimburse you for each session?
What is/is there the maximum number of sessions allowed per calendar year?
What is/is there the maximum amount paid for sessions per calendar year?
Which diagnoses they cover (you will need to be given a diagnosis in order to receive reimbursement for therapy services)?


Consultation:
I offer a free of charge face-to-face 20 minutes initial consultation to parents and clients who are considering me as their therapist. I believe that it is important that you feel confident that I am the right professional for your child prior to establishing any professional ties. Please be advised that this will be a brief and informal meeting thus that the therapist's legal implications toward the client's treatment would only start after the formal consent to treatment is received and my office policy is established.
If you already feel confident that you would like to work with me or if there is a need to start treatment as soon as possible contact me mentioning that you would like to schedule our first intake session.
