WHAT ARE THE FIRST STEPS TO STARTING THERAPY?
Contact us (fill out the form below or call us at 760-501-8044) to set up a call to get matched with a therapist that best fits your needs. We will answer any questions you have and discuss our fees*. (*We are currently in-network providers for IEHP and Molina. For out-of-network insurance plans, we are happy to provide a “superbill” for you to send in for reimbursement. Please check with your insurance provider to determine if they will reimburse for out-of-network services.)
We will send you an intake packet via our secure client portal for you to complete online at least 24 hours before your session.
Come to your first session. Your therapist will meet with you, go over your intake paperwork, and discuss what brought you in for therapy and your goals for therapy. The initial session is where we get to know you (or your child) and you get a feel for who we are as a therapist. By the end of the session, we will talk to you about our fit as a therapist, often provide you with some actionable goals, and hopefully schedule a second appointment to begin working together!

Can I use my insurance?
We are currently in-network providers with IEHP (Inland Empire Health Plan) and Molina. Our services may be covered by some other health insurance plans if your plan includes "out of network" benefits. If your plan does cover out-of-network therapists, you will be responsible for payment at the time of service and we can provide you with a monthly statement (also known as a "super bill") that you can choose to submit to your insurance company to receive reimbursement from them. Asking your insurance company the following questions may help you determine what your benefits are:
Do I have mental health insurance benefits with out-of-network providers?
What is my deductible and has it been met?
How many sessions per year does my health insurance cover?
What is the coverage amount per therapy session, and how much will I be reimbursed?
Is approval required from my primary care physician?
