FAQ's

While I have experience and training as a therapist, the only real expert in you, is YOU. If you chose to participate in therapy with me, it will be a process we undertake together, where you give me the honor of getting to know you and allowing me to use my knowledge and experience to help you address what you feel you need help with

This depends on the type of therapy that feels most comfortable to you. Standard sessions are 50 minutes and will take place at one of my office locations, at an outdoor area that we chose together (Typically these are Irvine Park, Laguna Niguel Regional Park, or Upper Newport Back Bay) or I offer concierge therapy in the comfort of your home or office.

Several reasons people chose to engage in concierge therapy are: Their lives necessitate a higher level of confidentiality than standard in-office visits allow, Working on their presenting concerns necessitate a greater feeling of safety and security that can only be facilitated in an environment that is safe and familiar, or medical conditions that do not allow access to outside locations

In general, there are laws protecting the confidentiality of all our communications, as client and therapist. I will not disclose information without your prior written permission, unless there is a legal exception.

Here are the most common exceptions required by law:

  • Suspected child abuse or dependent adult or elder abuse. I am required to report this to the appropriate authorities immediately. 
  • If a client is threatening serious bodily harm to another person. I am required to notify the police. 
  • If a client intends to harm himself or herself. I will make every effort to work with the individual to ensure their safety. However, if an individual does not cooperate, additional measures may need to be taken. 

Every effort will be made to respect your confidentiality, however, as a minor it is likely your parents or consenting caregiver would be allowed to request information about your therapy. When possible, any information provided will be discussed with you prior to being given to your parents. All parents are asked to respect your rights to privacy with the understanding that if your safety is a concern, they will be included in your care.

Standard 50 minute in-office sessions or walk-talk sessions are $195. Concierge options start at $300 and vary depending on location.
