Frequently Asked Questions

What languages do you provide in therapy?

I am a bi-lingual therapist who provide therapy in English and Mandarin Chinese. Language is not only the tool of communication but also part of our identities and living experiences. You may choose to speak the language that best connects you to your awareness or current living context. 

What is your fee? 

The average cost is $160 per 50-minute session for individuals and $180 per 50-minute session for couples. 

Do you offer a sliding scale fee? 

I have a limited number of sliding scale spots in my practice. I offer a reduced fee based on your income and individual financial situation. Please inquire. 

Do you accept insurance? 

I don't accept insurance at this time. If your insurance company covers out-of-network providers, I can provide a monthly charge summary (called a "superbill") which you can submit to the insurance company for reimbursement per their coverage policy. Insurance companies often require a formal diagnostic code with their claims. I will discuss my diagnosis with you before I submit this information.

What types of payment do you accept? 

I accept cash, checks, credit cards and Zelle automatic payment at this time. 

Do you have No-Show/ Cancellation Policy? 

I have 24-hour cancellation policy which means you may reschedule/cancel your appointments as long as you provide 24 hours notice. Appointments that are canceled less than 24 hours prior to the appointment will be charged the full fee. 

Do you provide tele-therapy (video/phone sessions)?

I offer tele-therapy to clients who reside in California. All appointments are provided remotely (via video or phone) during the pandemic until further notice. 

How long does therapy take? 

The length of therapy depends on individual needs and the issues wish addressed in therapy. Some client benefit after a handful of sessions and some may take years. After the first few sessions, we will create a treatment plan together based on your needs and therapeutic goals. And, I will provide ongoing assessments periodically to improve your experience in therapy.
