Porter Ranch Counseling | Question & Answer

Question & Answer

How much does a session cost?

In general, you will find that sessions vary depending on many factors, including selected length of session, your professional’s length of training and experience, therapist’s licensure status, amount of certifications, and their specialty trainings they have completed and more. We believe that therapy and life coaching are an investment in you and your family. An investment which we hope that the benefits and value you gain will be one that provides you with a lifetime of rewards and will carry you through your whole life if your targeted area is achieved. We take pride in valuing your time, our own time and in the professional services we offer and charge accordingly. Rates in our practice will vary by professional and service, so check out our rates here. We offer a variety of professional-levels and rates to assist everyone and hope to meet your financial need.

Do you accept insurance?

We do not accept insurance at this time. Utilizing insurance would require that we appoint you a mental health diagnosis. Because our clinical areas of focus are in relationship issues, life transitions, adjustment to a situation, marital conflict and partner relational problems, we do not find it beneficial to label people with a diagnosis that would remain on their health record. We prefer not to have our work with people dictated by an insurance company, but by our collaborative efforts formed by our professional expertise and your personal preferences and goals. If you present to us with a prior mental health diagnosis, please know that we will absolutely honor that part of your experience and work with you on those issues. We know that using insurance is a factor and perhaps necessary for clients. We’re happy to refer you to colleagues that we may know in our network. We do our due diligence to stay plugged in with other solid professionals in our Porter Ranch, San Fernando Valley, Los Angeles area. Otherwise, the best bet is to contact your insurance provider for a list of therapists in your area.

How do I prepare for a session?

Your professional will guide you. You’re in good hands and we want you to sit back, take a deep breath, relax and enjoy the adventure. Unless your professional gives you specific homework or an assignment, all they need is you! Just come as you are!

Do you offer tele-video services?

Yes, we use the same HIPPA-compliant system that NASA uses in order to be available for our busy professionals and people that may have difficulty getting to the office for various reasons. We take your privacy and confidentiality seriously.
