FEES AND PAYMENT
Fees and Payment
My current fee is $150.00 per 50 minute psychotherapy session. I accept cash, check, debit, credit cards, and PAYPAL, and payment is due at the time of each service.
Currently, I do not accept insurance. However, I can provide you with a superbill/ statement of services for you to submit to your insurance. I am considered an out-of-network provider.
When it is in your best interest or when your therapeutic needs lie outside of my scope of expertise or practice, I will refer you to other qualified providers in the community.
I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in the State of California (LMFT 89369).
I am also a Board-Registeted Clinical Art Therapist (ATR 08-094).
I received my Master's degree (MA) in Marital and Family Therapy with Specialized Training in Clinical Art Therapy and graduated with honors from Loyola Marymount University.
I received my Bachelor's degrees in both (BA) Psychology and (BA) Communication-Radio, Television, and Film Media Studies with a minor in Women's Studies from The University of Houston.
I have worked as a trauma-informed psychotherapist with abuse survivors for 11 and a half years at CALM in Santa Barbara
I have also worked as an art therapist with adolescents in a private drug and alcohol rehab, with homeless adults at Casa Esperanza homeless shelter, and in private practice with clients living with challenging medical issues.
No artistic experience is necessary! (In fact, non-artists often make the best art therapy clients.)
