Insurance

Our providers work with several insurance and EAP plans. For all other plans we are out-of-network providers. In these cases we are happy to provide an insurance superbill with proper coding. You may submit this to your insurance carrier for direct reimbursement. We are happy to advocate for you to understand your plan’s benefits and support single case agreements if appropriate.

  • Veteran’s Administration Triwest
  • Worker’s Compensation California

EAP plans we work with

Fees

Following are fees for each of our four core services:

Psychotherapy and coaching for individual, couples, families, and groups

Psychotherapy and coaching sessions are correlated with insurance billing codes to support reimbursement.  See table below for CPT codes and fees.

There are 7 types of psychotherapy and coaching services.  All psychotherapy and coaching includes tools and techniques driven by evidence-based theory to support your healing, growth, and transformation.  Your provider will work with you to create a custom treatment plan to meet your specific needs in the most efficient way possible.

Boost

These are 30 minute boost sessions designed to reinforce habit change and support quick decisions or questions. These sessions can happen more frequently for a shorter duration which is especially helpful for habit change.

Explorer

These are 50 minute sessions designed to explore symptoms and what is causing them. Whether its trauma, attachment, addiction, ASD, ADHD, or performance optimization these sessions put growth and healing on a fast track.

Explorer Plus

These are 65 minute sessions which provide time for deeper exploration into issues that are limiting your ability to thrive in all aspects of your life. These sessions recommended to resolve complex issues or to accelerate the change and growth process.

Couples & Families

These 50 or 100 minute sessions focus on relationship healing and growth. The 100 minute sessions are recommended to begin as the longer time provides space to do a thorough intake, graph your history, and establish a functional communication plan.

Groups

These are 80 minute sessions that focus on a specific issue to be addressed in a group setting. Whether it’s Art Therapy for Veterans with Trauma, NT Partner Support, Dating for Singles, or Digital Addiction, the presence of others in this work creates a shared energy that is highly motivating and supportive of change and growth.

Written

Writing thoughts down can be a useful adjunct to verbal communication. Your therapist may recommend this form of psychotherapy which asks you to do some writing and then your therapist will respond in writing.

Administrative Time

Time outside of session may be necessary for your provider to prepare reports, complete assessments, write contracts, or other administrative support for psychotherapy. A reasonable amount of administrative time is offered at no additional charge. Your provider determines what is reasonable. You will not be charged these fees without prior notification and your approval.

Fee ranges are below.  Your exact fee depends on your issue and the experience of your provider.  Fees are payable by cash, check, credit card, Google Pay, or Venmo.

  • Fees are due at different times depending on the type of session:
    • Online sessions – an invoice will be sent to pay before the session
    • In-person sessions – at the time of the session

Workshops and intensives to jump start your health and wellness
