Making an appointment for counseling is easy. You can call me at (909)229-9000 or even send a text if you like. Also, you may email me at email@example.com. My office hours are flexible and do include evening and Saturday appointments. I think it is preferable to actually speak on the phone, especially before the first session. That gives you a sense of confidence that you have at least “heard a voice” and have some sense of the personality you will be talking to. My intake form is on line and you can print it out and have it completed prior to our first session. That saves time during the initial interview. This form needs to be completed by each individual coming to the session. For children, I will just need their basic information such as name, birthday and social security number.
My fee for psychotherapy is $110 per session. That is payable at the time and can possibly be reimbursed by medical insurance. I charge by the hour, not by the person, so this fee is the same whether you come by yourself or with a family member, partner or friend. I can take cash or check, but I do not accept credit cards.
There is a 24 hour cancellation policy so if you cancel or need to move your appointment at the last minute, you may be charged for that session whether or not you actually attend. I really try to be accommodating about this but I am also hoping the client will be respectful of my time.
There are two possible office location. My formal office is located on the border of Riverside and Corona off of Pierce St.
