Sliding Fee Program

I offer a 12-week, sliding scale program for clients who wish to work with me on targeted treatment goals and are unable to pay my full fee. During the 12-weeks, clients in this program have access to Intensive Programs at a discounted rate. At the end of the 12-weeks, services return to full fee amount. There are limited spots in the sliding scale program. Reach out to check availability.

Your Client Portal

After your phone consultation, you will be emailed a link to your Secure Client Portal to complete your electronic consent forms. You will also be invited to join Ivy Pay via text message. A card must be on file to begin and continue therapeutic services. All of your intake paperwork and billing information needs to be completed no later than 48 hours before your first scheduled session to avoid automatic cancellation.

 

Payment Options

I accept cash or card as payment for therapeutic services. If paying with cash, the amount must be exact and provided at the time your session is held. 

Ivy Pay is a HIPAA-secure, PCI-protected card-on-file payment service that was designed exclusively for therapists. It works with credit, debit, HSA and FSA cards and makes payment easy for you and me. You will only be asked to enter your credit card information once (unless you need or wish to change the card), and you do not need to download an app or regularly interact with Ivy Pay.

Ivy Pay has a few benefits:

  • I am able to charge you for sessions without swiping a card at each appointment
  • The service is secure and compliant with HIPAA standards for client confidentiality
  • Your credit card information is stored with Ivy Pay, not in my files or other records; I do not have access to your stored credit card information
  • You would be able to review past charges and payments in a text message thread

The service works simply:

  • You provide a phone number, which I enter into the provider’s Ivy Pay app along with a charge for the session fee
  • Ivy Pay texts you a secure link leading to a page where you enter your credit card information and approve the first charge
  • I use Ivy Pay to charge the stored card; the app sends you a text informing you that I’ve done so

      Insurance

      I accept PPO health insurance plans as an “out-of-network” provider. Superbills available upon request at the beginning of each month. Before beginning therapy, it is always a good idea to check in with your insurance company to find out what coverage you have for mental health services with an out-of-network provider. For clients seeking insurance reimbursement, please know that not all insurance plans will reimburse for online sessions or sessions at extended lengths.

      Is there any benefit to not utilizing insurance?

      By being a private paying client, you eliminate the requirement to share your personal health information and you avoid limitations for your care placed on you by third parties. Benefits of self-paying include:

      • Ability to select the provider best suited for your needs
      • No mental health diagnosis
      • No limit on the number of visits/session length

       

      RESCHEDULING & CANCELLING

      48 Hour Scheduling Policy

      Therapy sessions are available both online and in person at my office in Hermosa Beach. Session times are carved out and reserved exclusively for you. When a session is canceled or rescheduled without adequate notice, I am unable to appropriately reserve office space or offer time slots to others who may be waiting for an opening or have a clinical emergency.

      If you would like to cancel or reschedule your session, please let me know no later than 48 hours before your scheduled session to avoid being charged the full session fee.

      E.g., your session is scheduled for 3:00pm on a Tuesday, notice must be given by 3:00pm on Sunday at the absolute latest.

      If you prefer to be seen in person, please be aware office space is reserved ahead of time. Therefore, a $25 late fee for reserved office space will be applied on top of the full session fee when notice for changes is not given 48 hrs before your scheduled session.

      E.g., Late Cancellations, No Shows, and Late Rescheduling Requests to Switch Session Format will result in $25 late fee for reserved office space applied on top of full session fee.

      *I will always give you a heads up when a scheduling fee may be applied to schedule changes.*

      You can make changes to our schedule by calling, texting, or emailing me. Please remember to confirm that I have received your message. Then I can make appropriate changes in the calendar.
