If you are reading this web site, you or someone you know, may have a mood or behavioral problem. If you think that you could possibly benefit from cognitive-behavior therapy you are welcome to give us a call. On the phone, we will be happy to schedule an initial consultation or answer any questions you may have. If you would like, one of our therapists will call you back and discuss your situation to determine if we are an appropriate center for you to seek treatment. More important than you treating with us, is you treating in a facility and with a therapist that is most suitable for you and your problem. If for some reason we are not the best facility for you we will let you know and make a recommendation.
If you decide to schedule an appointment we will have you fill out paperwork and bring it to your first session. In the first session we will review, in detail, the paperwork you filled out. We will take a thorough and comprehensive history that will allow us to understand you and the problems that brings you to us. In addition to getting to know each other, hopefully during the first session or two, we will collaboratively set treatment goals and develop a plan of action. Also, during the first few sessions we will both get a sense of whether we can work together. Because therapy often involves talking about emotionally painful and sensitive experiences, it is important that you feel that you are with a safe and trusted person who has nothing but your best interests and your needs in mind. At the end of the first or second session we should be able to give you an idea of the expected length of treatment although, at times, we can give an estimate after talking to you briefly on the phone.
If you would like to schedule an appointment or if you would like to speak with one of our therapists please call (949) 222-2848.
On the Financial Policy page please replace what is there with the following:
The financial policy of this office is that fees will be paid at the end of each session. We do not participate in any HMO or PPO plans. At the end of each session we will provide you with all necessary paperwork for you to submit to your insurance company and be reimbursed by them. If your insurance company is going to reimburse you for our services they will consider us an out of network provider. Most of our clients do submit paperwork and receive reimbursement for a portion of our fees. You may want to contact your insurance company and ask how much your plan will reimburse you for out of network individual psychotherapy.
Our fee is $250 per session for individual psychotherapy. Our sessions last between 45 and 50 minutes. Cognitive behavior therapy research studies show that most people complete a course of treatment in 12 - 20 sessions and that is consistent with our experience. Some people require less treatment and some people require more. After the first or second session we will be able to give you an estimate of how long your treatment will last.
Our fee is $90 per session for group therapy. Our group sessions last 90 minutes and are generally 10-12 sessions long.
We accept MasterCard and Visa
