Frequently Asked Questions
What's the Difference between Therapy and Health Coaching?
Therapy services must be provided by a Licensed Clinician or an unlicensed Masters Level Clinician under the supervision of a Licensed person. These services are considered medically necessary and are sometimes reimbursed or covered by your insurance company. Services can continue as long as necessary for symptom reduction. Clinicians are regulated by their state board (BBS in California). Health Coaching is an unregulated service provided for a short period of time to address a specific GOAL of the client.

How do I book my first session?
For Therapy: Download the Pre-Screener on the Forms page and fill it out. Fax it to 818-351-8130. We will get back to you promptly to confirm that Teletherapy is a good fit for you. At that point you can download and fill out either the Individual Consent or the Couples Counseling Consent and fax that to 818-351-8130 and click on "Book Online" to schedule a Session. It's that easy!
For Coaching: Go to Plans and Pricing and purchase one of our Coaching Packages and schedule your initial Coaching Consultation. For the Health Assessment you can go to Book Online and schedule your consultation and we will send you the necessary paperwork.

Is Telehealth or Online Therapy for Everyone?
Telehealth is a very convenient way for people to get the services that they need from a safe, private and comfortable space. With that being said, it may not be suitable for people who lack a private space to talk, people with migraines, people with psychotic symptoms and/or people who have visual impairments or are considered at high risk for suicide based on previous attempts. We take our client's health very seriously and use a PreScreener Questionnaire prior to starting services to make sure Telehealth is a good fit for the Client.
