Santa Cruz Therapy — Hours & Fees
Providing telehealth services to clients residing anywhere in California.
Morning, afternoon and early evening counseling and therapy appointments are available on Wednesdays & Thursdays. Contact me for a free 15-minute phone consultation at either (831) 426-4800 or schedule an appointment.
Fees are $210 for individuals, $245 for couples and families. Most sessions are 50 minutes, though couples and families are often seen for 75 minutes at a pro-rated rate. You may pay for your seasons by cash, check, credit card, or PayPal. I request payment at the beginning of your session to avoid distractions before you leave. A $15 billing fee is added if clients have to be billed following a session. There is a $25 charge for returned checks.
I am an out of network provider for all insurance companies. Clients wanting to use any insurance coverage are asked to pay for sessions as they are provided and then may request a statement at the end of each month that allows them to seek reimbursement through their insurance company at their specific “out of plan provider” rates. I cannot guarantee reimbursement. Check with your health plan regarding your specific “out of network provider coverage” and if a doctor’s referral may be necessary for reimbursement.

I require a minimum of 24 hours notice by phone or voicemail message for cancellations. If you call within less than 24 hours to cancel or reschedule, or if you miss or forget your appointment, you will be charged the full fee.
Good Faith Estimate
You have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much your medical and mental health care will cost. Under the law, health care providers need to give patients who don’t have insurance or who are not using insurance an estimate of the expected charges for medical services, including psychotherapy services. You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency healthcare services, including psychotherapy services. You can ask your health care provider, and any other provider you choose, for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule a service.If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your Good Faith Estimate, you can dispute the bill. Make sure to save a copy or picture of your Good Faith Estimate. For questions or more information about your right to a Good Faith Estimate, visit www.cms.gov/nosurprises or call (800) 985-3059.
