Frequently Asked Questions
Do you take insurance?
Lisa is an out-of-network provider. That means payment is due in full at the end of each session and she will provide you with a receipt to submit to your insurance on your own. These receipts will only be provided upon request, so please be sure to let Lisa know in advance to make sure she has one ready for you.
What are your rates?
Please contact Lisa for her standard 50-minute session rate.
What forms of payment do you accept?
Cash, Checks & Credit Cards (American Express, MasterCard, Visa, Discover) are all accepted. Payment is due at the end of each session.
What is your cancellation policy?
Lisa has a 24-hour cancellation policy. Exceptions will be made in cases of unforeseen illness or emergency. If you do cancel a session within the 24-hour window or do not show up for the session, you will be responsible for paying your fee in full. Canceling within 24-hours prevents Lisa from offering your time slot to someone else who might need it.
Will what we discuss remain confidential?
Yes, what you and Lisa discuss remains between the two of you. The only two exceptions to this rule are if Lisa suspects that you are in danger of harming yourself or another person, or Lisa learns of past or present abuse of children, adults, or elders. Lisa will provide you with a written copy of her confidential disclosure agreement at the start of treatment. This is called "Informed Consent". However, sometimes you may want Lisa to share information or give an update to someone on your healthcare team (your Physician, Psychiatrist, Dietician, etc), but by law your therapist cannot release this information without obtaining your written permission.
Where are you located & what are your office hours?
Lisa's office is in Beverly Hills. Parking is available in the structure behind the building (the building does not validate) or at meters on the street, or free parking on nearby streets. Lisa offers both weekday and Saturday hours, for those who are not available during normal weekday hours. Lisa does not currently offer evening hours.
