Payment Information • San Jose Counseling and Therapy

Some of the most common questions about counseling and psychotherapy are about the fee and whether insurance will cover the cost. The information below explains my policies and procedures for insurance reimbursement and my session fee.

Please note that each session is 45 minutes in length and the session fees listed below apply to the type of therapy/counseling that is reserved at the time the appointment is scheduled.

Fees for Individual, Couples, and Family Therapy

  • Individual therapy $200.00 (one person)
  • Couples counseling and family therapy $275.00 (two to three people)

Payment

Fees are due at the beginning of each session. Check, cash, and credit card (Visa and MasterCard) payments are accepted.

Cancellation Policy

If you need to cancel or reschedule an appointment, please do so by phone by calling 408-315-0645 with 48 hours notice before your scheduled appointment time. This allows my office time to offer that hour to someone else. If you do not show for your appointment, or if you cancel or reschedule with less than 48 hours notice, you will be charged the regular fee for the type of therapy/counseling session that you reserved.

Insurance

About 70 percent of licensed therapists in California do not take any type of health insurance. Like this vast majority, I am a therapist who does not take insurance. However, many PPOs and HMOs will cover all or a portion of the fee. If you would like to use your insurance, please contact your insurance company and ask what coverage you have to see an “out-of-network provider.” Make sure you tell them that I have a Ph.D. as insurance companies usually reimburse at a higher rate for therapists with a Ph.D. Your insurance company will tell you what your coverage is. When you come to the office, you will pay for your sessions as you go. If you request it, you will receive a superbill once a month that you can submit to your insurance company for reimbursement.
