Insurance:

East Bay Counseling is an out-of-network provider for insurance. This means that in my my Alameda, Danville, and Dublin therapy practices, I do not deal directly with insurance companies, but services may be reimbursable for out-of-network benefits by your insurance plan.

Some questions to ask your insurance company to see if you are eligible are:

  • "Do I have behavioral health benefits with an out-of-network provider?"

  • "Is there a deductible? If so, how much is it, and has it been met?"

  • "How many sessions per calendar year does my plan cover?"

  • "What is the covered amount per therapy session with a licensed marriage and family therapist who is out-of-network?"

  • "Is there approval required by my primary doctor?"

If requested, I will gladly generate an invoice for you to file claims with your insurance plan to obtain reimbursement.

East Bay Counseling Missed Appointment Policy:

Since scheduling of an appointment involves the reservation of a time specifically for you, I require a minimum of 24 hours notice for canceling an appointment. Unless we reach a different agreement, the full session fee will be charged for sessions missed without such notification. If you have a work situation that may require you to be on call and could result in missed sessions, you need to make arrangements ahead of time.

East Bay Counseling Accepted Forms of Payment:

In my Alameda, Danville, and Dublin therapy practices, I accept cash, checks, most major credit cards, Paypal, and Venmo as payment. Payment for sessions is due at the time of service.
