FAQ
  • What are the benefits of therapy?

    Attending therapy can be life changing. By prioritizing yourself, you will gain insight into what you value and how you can live your life around your values. You may experience improvement in your personal and professional relationships and form deeper connections. You can work toward solutions to specific problems you bring forward in therapy and work on ways to deal with stress. My hope that is therapy will help you achieve an overall sense of well being.

  • How does Online/Video Therapy work?

    Our sessions are face-to-face through secure video, so you get real-time help and support as if you were in person in a therapy office. I use a secure HIPPA compliant video platform that is easy to access and easy to use. For more information on the online therapy process click here.

  • Can I make an appointment to come into the office?

    At this time I am only providing online therapy services.  With online therapy, no more parking, travel time, and worrying about what to wear. You can do it on your lunch break, your work from home day or in your pajamas. You can do it anywhere! You can keep the same therapist if you tend to relocate frequently (within California or overseas) and you can have access to an English-speaking therapist even if you live in a foreign country.

  • What should I expect once I decide to move forward with therapy?

    When you sign up, we will schedule an Intake: The intake is a 75-minute session in which I will go in depth to get a sense of who you are, what you are struggling with and what strengths and resiliency factors you bring to the table. I want to get a sense of how we can work together to get you to where you want to be. After your intake, we will start Therapy Sessions: Therapy is typically for weekly 50-minute sessions. Our weekly sessions are an important way for us to gain momentum on reaching your goals. As you make progress, we can talk about moving our sessions to every other week or monthly sessions if that seems more appropriate. Clike here to book.

  • Will my insurance cover our sessions?

    My practice is private pay only. Some insurance companies will provide "out of network" coverage for telemental health counseling services.  When using out of network benefits you pay for your therapy session out of pocket at the time of service.  The therapist then provides you with a superbill to submit to your insurance company.  A superbill is a receipt for therapy services which includes on it; a diagnosis, length of session, and information about the provider. For more information on Pricing click here.

  • How does payment work?

    I collect credit card information to be run after each session. A missed appointment, without providing at least 24 hours’ notice, will be billed at the full fee rate. To find out more about Pricing click here.

  • Do you offer a sliding scale?

    I offer low fee services through the Open Path Collective. I have a limited number of slots. I keep a waitlist for those slots, which run $50-60 per session. The rest of my slots are a full fee.

  • Does what we talk about in therapy remain confidential?

    At Grit and Grace, your privacy and safety are always the first consideration. I go to great lengths to ensure that you and your data are always kept safe and confidential. My technology is fully HIPAA compliant and your safety is my #1 priority.
