Psychotherapy Rates

These services are appropriate for individuals and couples who are seeking services for behavioral health conditions. Health insurance may cover some or all of the cost of services.

NOTICE: Starting January 2022, hourly cash rates will be increasing to $150 per hour session for both psychotherapy and Life Coaching. Some insurance companies, such as Medicare and Optum, increased their reimbursement rate to $150 in 2020. I adjust my rates every 2-3 years using the Medicare reimbursement schedule to account for inflation and changes in operating expenses. 

PAYMENT METHOD: Starting November 2021 I am offering a preferred credit/debit payment option through Venmo for Business.  You can access by clicking the highlighted text.

Insurance
Services may be covered in full or in part by your health insurance or employee benefit plan. I am an in-network provider for Anthem Blue Cross, HealthNet, MediCare, Aetna and MHN PPO, MHN Employee Assistance Program (EAP), Mammoth Mountain Ski Area EAP, FEI EAP, and Magellan EAP. Please check your coverage carefully by asking the following questions:

  • Do I have mental health insurance benefits?

  • What is my deductible (in-network and out-of-network) and has it been met?

  • How many sessions per year does my health insurance cover?

  • What is the coverage amount per therapy session (in-network and out-of-network)?

  • Is approval required from my primary care physician?


If you have one of the following insurance providers, the negotiated in-network rate is between $130 and $160. You may be responsible for meeting a deductible and/or co-pay. Co-payments range between $0-$75 depending on your plan:

  • Anthem Blue Cross (Including Delta and Pinnacle)

  • Aetna

  • FEI EAP

  • Health Net

  • Medicare B

  • Magellan EAP

  • MHN EAP

  • MMSA EAP

  • Optum Behavioral Health (LADWP employees only)

Medicare-B with Supplemental Insurance

If you have Medicare and a supplemental insurance, you typically have no co-pay or you may need to first meet the annual deductible before your supplemental plan covers your co-payment:

Blue Shield of CA through Covered California/Magellan Health Services

If you have Blue Shield of California, Blue Shield will require that you first consider or work with one of the in-network providers. If there is a reason none of these providers work for you, I may be able to get Single Case Agreement to provide services at your in-network rate. Please call and we can discuss the process.
