Frequently Asked Questions
We have answered some of the most frequently asked questions. If you don’t see an answer to your question please don’t hesitate to reach out to us directly.
When working with a therapist, it is imperative that you have a professional, but intimate connection, trust, and a sense of being heard, seen, and understood. The call is an opportunity for us to find out if it feels like a good fit for us both. It is also a way for you to get to how we work and explore how we can help you achieve your goal(s). By the end of our call, you will have a good idea of whether or not you feel comfortable working together. If we feel that we are not the best fit for you & your needs, we will likely refer you to another professional who may be more appropriate.
Our therapists are licensed in California, Texas and Florida. However, we are only permitted to work with Florida residents as telehealth providers. Please visit https://flhealthsource.gov/telehealth/ if you have questions about telehealth provider requirements or licensees. Our clinicians do offer coaching services as well. Coaching is a transformative process for personal and professional awareness, discovery and growth. As coaches, we are responsible for discovering, clarifying, and aligning with what clients want to achieve, encouraging client self-discovery and eliciting client-generated solutions and strategies. As a coach, we do not diagnose or treat mental health illnesses or seek to resolve the deeper underlying issues that cause emotional problems. We also do not process trauma. Should we feel that a client may benefit from therapy rather than coaching, we will discuss this with the client and offer appropriate referrals.

Fees vary depending on the clinician and duration of the session. Some of our clinicians offer sliding scale fees on a case by case basis. This can be discussed on the consultation call.
We are in-network with Blue Cross Medi-Cal, Cigna, and HMC Healthworks. In addition, we accept all PPO Insurance plans as an out-of-network provider. We will provide patients with a “superbill” at the end of every month, which can be submitted to the insurance company for reimbursement depending on the subscriber’s plan.
To find out about out-of-network benefits, please contact your insurance carrier and ask:
What percentage is covered for “out-of network” or “non-participating providers”
What is the “maximum allowed amount” per session? (This is sometimes referred to as “reasonable and customary fees”) for zip code 91403 for Masters Level and PSYD (LMFT/LCSW/Psychologist) clinicians. The CPT/procedure code is 90791 & 90837.
If you have a deductible for out-of-network providers and how much it is.
California law protects the confidential nature of therapeutic relationships by recognizing that those relationships are privileged. Any information that a therapist maintains, whether electronically or in some other form, that documents or describes his or her assessment and/or treatment of a patient, including information that contains any personal identifying information that would be sufficient to identify a patient, is confidential. Therefore, your sessions and all information you disclose are confidential. Except for the instances stated below, which are required by law, we will not share information or respond to inquiries of any kind from any source without your written consent. All mental health providers are required to abide by these guidelines.
• If in our clinical judgment, you pose a threat to harm yourself or another person, our licensed therapists are ethically bound to notify the appropriate parties (those who can intervene to protect you).
• If you indicate a serious imminent threat to harm another person, our licensed therapists are legally required to warn the intended victim(s) and the police.
• We have a suspicion of a child or elder being abused (or neglected).
• If state or federal courts subpoena our clinical records or require our testimony.
