How do I schedule a counseling appointment?

We will first have a brief phone consultation to discuss what brings you to counseling. You can coordinate this through my contact form, email me at beckie@glendoracounseling.com or you can call me at 626-665-9174.

What is your availability?

I am currently in the office most weekdays, with limited evening appointments at this time. If no evening sessions are open, I can add you to the wait list for evening appointments, but I can not guarantee when they will become available.

What is your rate for counseling sessions?

My rate for a standard 50 minute session is $135. I offer longer sessions (100 minutes for $270) when appropriate and based on availability. Payment is required at the end of each session. I accept all major credit cards, checks and cash (please have correct change).

Do you take insurance?

I am a provider on limited insurance panels. Please contact me directly so we can discuss your plan and verify benefits. Please keep in mind that in order to use your insurance, I will have to assign you a mental health diagnosis that will become part of your permanent medical record.

 

It is also possible for your sessions to be partially covered by your personal insurance under your "out-of-network" benefits. If you would like to use your insurance for your counseling sessions, I can provide you with a Statement for Reimbursement (also called a Superbill) for you to submit directly to your insurance company for reimbursement. Please keep in mind that in order to use your insurance, I will have to assign you a mental health diagnosis that will become part of your permanent medical record.

Some insurance companies do not provide coverage for counseling/therapy, so be sure to contact your insurance provider to ask if you have "out-of-network" coverage for counseling sessions and the rate or percentage that they will cover.
