I understand how crucial it is to find a therapist that feels like a good fit. Therefore, I offer a free 15-minute phone consultation for us to talk about your concerns, goals and any questions you have. To schedule, click the icon below and select a time that works best for you.
Schedule Your First Appointment
We’ll schedule our first meeting during the phone consultation. Once the appointment is made, I’ll send you the policy of my practice via a secure client portal. You can review and complete the paperwork, and bring any questions you have to our first meeting. If we decide that my services are not the best fit for you, I can refer you to colleagues whose specialties can better meet your needs.
Our First Meeting
Our first meeting is where we develop rapport, get to know each other and learn how we can best work together. We will get an in-depth understanding of your presenting concerns, relevant history and your goals. We will also assess your inner resources and your needs for skills and strategies building. Together, we will develop a tailored plan.
I tailor my services to meet your unique needs, goals and circumstances. Typically, we will have weekly, 45-minute sessions. Our meetings may be open-ended or short-term, depending on the goals we identify and how you want to utilize the space of psychotherapy and career coaching at this time of your life.
I’m bilingual in English and Mandarin.
I am an out-of-network provider and I am not on any insurance panels. If your insurance plan has out-of-network benefits, your psychotherapy expenses may be covered by your insurance policy. And the exact portion of coverage depends on your particular insurance plan.
It is important to find out what mental health services your insurance covers if you are seeking insurance reimbursement. Here are some important questions for your insurance company.
Do I have out-of-network mental health benefits?
How much is my deductible and has it been met?
What percentage of the session fees will be reimbursed after meeting my deductible?
How many sessions per year are covered by my insurance?
Do I need a referral from my primary care physician?
I will provide you with monthly invoices so you can submit them to your insurance company for reimbursement.
