What are your fees?
Initial consultations are always free.
Our licensed psychologists set their own fees, with most standard rates ranging between $150 – $220 per session. Many of our psychologists do offer sliding scale discounts for clients experiencing financial hardship.
We also have pre-licensed therapists (practicum students and postdoctoral psychological assistants) working in our practice under the supervision of licensed psychologists. The standard rate for working with one of our practicum students is $50 per session, and the standard rate for working with one of our postdoctoral psychological assistants is $100 per session. Again, sliding scale discounts may be available for clients experiencing severe financial hardship.
Do you accept my insurance?
We are an out-of-network provider with insurance. This means that if you are receiving individual psychotherapy and have PPO insurance, you can submit a “superbill” for submission to and potential reimbursement by your insurance company.
A superbill is a document that includes your mental health diagnoses, our provider information, and the dates of service. We provide superbills as requested on a monthly basis, free of charge.
Insurance reimbursement rates vary based on your specific insurance plan information. We’ve found that most of our clients with PPO plans are reimbursed between 50% to 70% of each session.
I do not have PPO insurance. What about me?
You will not be reimbursed by your insurance company.
Do you offer a sliding scale?
A “sliding scale” means that clients with financial hardship can receive discounts on our regular rates.
If you’re interested in services through California Women’s Therapy, but our rates would create a financial hardship, please contact us to discuss further. We want our services to be accessible.
