Answers to some of the most common questions I receive about how to get started.

If you are experiencing a life threatening emergency, please call 9-1-1 or go to the nearest emergency room for assistance.

You can also call 1 (800) 854-7771 for emergency evaluation by the Los Angeles County Department of Mental Health.

I accept cash major credit card payments (via my electronic platform or square invoicing) at the beginning of session.

I am an out-of-network provider, therefore I do not take insurance as a source of payment. I can however, provide a receipt for reimbursement. Please discuss with your healthcare provider or health care spending account about reimbursement. I do take Health Care Spending cards and can provide invoices for you to submit.

It depends. I am paneled with the Employee Assistance Program (EAP) Lyra. Ask your human services representative if you have Lyra or if they cover short term therapy for employment related issues. I have experience with having employers pay me for their employees session especially when there are grief, loss, or trauma related stressors due to the work environment. This is a good option for small companies. Session details remain completely confidential (except for mandated reporting reasons), however, your employer does receive an invoice after the session took place for payment purposes only. Did something happen at work that you’re having trouble processing or coping with? Have your employer reach out to me for employer sponsored sessions.
