Fees for Counseling

Supportive Counseling in Glendora, CA

I had to finally ask myself "Can I afford not to get the help and support I need for one more day?" For me to say yes to therapy meant that I had to say no to some other spending in my life - and it was worth it - thank you so much!"

There are many factors to consider when finding the right therapist for you, your partner, or your relationship. I understand that finances can be one of those factors. I have provided the following information to help support your process forward.

GCS Fees

I see individuals and couples on a weekly or twice a month basis for counseling sessions. My practice is fee-for-service. Upon request, I will provide a receipt that you may submit to your insurance company for possible out-of-network provider reimbursement. Please note that some insurance companies will reimburse a portion of a therapy fee for an out-of-network provider, while other managed care companies will not. While I do not fill out insurance forms or work directly with a client's health care insurance company, you are welcome to contact your insurance company to see if they will reimburse a portion of your payment.

My fee for an individual 45-minute session is billed at $185. 

For couples there are two options: A standard 45-minute session at $185, or for couples who require extra time, I offer a 90-minute session which is billed as a double session. 

Walk Talk therapy sessions are 45 minutes in length and conducted out of my Glendora office and are billed at the individual rate of $185, there is no extra charge for this. Teletherapy [phone sessions] are billed at the same rate.

Emergency check in sessions are 25 minutes, usually conducted via phone depending upon the crisis, and are billed at a rate of $95.00. Important Note: If you are currently suicidal or are facing a life-threatening emergency, please call 911 or go to your local emergency room for immediate support.

My group fees are $45 per person, per week for the Women's HEART and HOPE counseling groups, and $45 for the Men's Sexual Recovery SRS group if you are working with me in individual or couples therapy. If you are not working with me, the group is $65 per person per week.

"I never thought I would actually look forward to therapy, but each week I leave feeling more focused, less anxious and equipped to tackle what is ahead. I feel good about the results!"

Appointments

Appointments can be made by calling (818) 521-4370, or via email at info@growthcounselingservices.com. While I am happy to speak with you briefly before your first session to answer your initial questions, I do not offer a "free therapy" session, thus, your first session is a paid session where we will meet to discuss your current challenges and next steps. If we find this is a good fit clinically, then I will set up a regular time to meet with you, go over your therapy goals, and work on a focused plan of action with tools in supporting you as you move forward in your healing process.
