FAQs

INSURANCE AND PAYMENT

Do you accept insurance for counseling (therapy) sessions?

I am a contracted provider with the following insurance plans: Tricare (standard and prime), Cigna (EAP, HMO, PPO), Aetna, and Anthem (EAP, HMO, PPO).

I also accept all Health Savings Account (HSA) Cards for copays, deductibles or fee-for-service appointments (if you have a different insurance provider). 

I am also able to offer no-cost, short-term counseling to problem gamblers and/or affected family members through a contract with UCLA and the Office of Problem Gambling, State of California.

SCHEDULING

How do I schedule an appointment or ask questions about beginning counseling sessions?

Please call my office at (619)549-3994. You may also send me an email using the form at the bottom of the page. Please be sure to leave your contact information (phone number and best times to call). I schedule all first time appointments via phone in order to be able to answer any questions you may have about counseling and to make sure that I am able to provide the services you need at this time.

Can I bring my baby to sessions?

Yes! If you would like to, you can bring your baby (up to 4 months) to office visits.

I am unable to come in for an office appointment (I am on bedrest/don’t have childcare/am uncomfortable leaving my infant.) Do you offer teletherapy appointments?

Yes, I offer teletherapy (video sessions) when appropriate.  Some insurance plans provide the same coverage for teletherapy as they do for in-office visits. 

ADDITIONAL SERVICES OFFERED

Do you offer any other services?

I offer workshops, trainings, project consultations, keynote/plenary talks, and webinars for community groups, schools, businesses and associations. I also offer e-courses online.
