San Jose Counseling and Psychotherapy
The information below explains my services, policies and procedures for insurance reimbursement and my session fee. Please note that each session is 45 minutes in length.
Fees are due at the beginning of each session. Cash, and credit card (Visa and MasterCard) payments are accepted. Some people find it convenient to pay a month in advance.
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 without 48 hours, you will be charged the regular fee for that hour.
I am an out-of-network therapist, which means you would pay for your therapy sessions at the time of service and submit the claims to your insurance company for reimbursement. If you have mental health benefits that allow you to see an out-of-network therapist (often called a PPO), you may be able to receive partial reimbursement for therapy services. Keep in mind that insurance companies will require that you have a valid mental health diagnosis and may limit coverage by diagnosis, procedure code or number of visits. In addition, you may need to meet a deductible before your insurance company starts to reimburse you. I am not an in-network provider for any insurance companies. Please call your insurance company to review your benefits and obtain pre-approval (if required) before starting therapy.
