What is the length & fee per session?
My fee reflects the typical rate for mental health counselors in San Francisco. Sessions last for 50 minutes.
Payment by cash or check is expected at the end of each session.
Is insurance accepted?
I do not belong to any insurance panels but can provide a detailed bill for clients to seek reimbursement via out-of-network coverage.
Is the content of sessions confidential between the therapist and client?
The law protects the relationship between a client and a psychotherapist, and information cannot be disclosed without written permission.
- Suspected child abuse or dependent adult or elder abuse, for which I am required by law to report this to the appropriate authorities immediately.
- If a client is threatening serious bodily harm to another person/s, I must notify the police and inform the intended victim.
- If a client intends to harm himself or herself, I will make every effort to enlist their cooperation in ensuring their safety. If they do not cooperate, I will take further measures without their permission that are provided to me by law in order to ensure their safety.
