What types of problems are treated at Silicon Beach CBT?
In general, any emotional difficulty or life stress can be addressed in therapy. This practice also offers specialized treatments for panic attacks, trauma, worry and generalized anxiety, social phobia, specific phobias, depression, and insomnia.
How much are sessions?
Sessions are $250 for a 50-minute session, which are scheduled weekly. This rate also applies to the initial intake session. Fees are due at the time of the scheduled session. I do not offer a sliding scale but reduced rates may be available. All major credit cards are accepted.
Do you accept insurance?
I do not accept insurance; however, I do provide a statement which you can submit to your insurance provider. Some plans will provide you with a reimbursement for a percentage of the fees, but this is not guaranteed. Please speak directly with your insurance provider about your coverage or the percentage that will be reimbursed.
Where are sessions held?
The sessions usually occur in-person at my office. There are opportunities for tele-health for convenience.
What can I expect from therapy?
While taking the first step can be hard, many people find that they experience some relief upon just starting the process of addressing their struggles or past traumas. The therapeutic relationship is critical to successful therapy and we work together to develop an open and collaborative working relationship. Therapy is also active- the more you put in, the more you will get out. You may be asked to monitor your thoughts/behaviors or practice skills in between our appointments. The goal is that you will eventually become your own therapist!
