What does "Associate Clinical Social Worker" mean?
The status of "associate" means that I am a provisionally licensed therapist in the state of California. It is similar to how doctors go through a residency. Therapists must also go through several years of clinical supervision, thousands of hours of experience, and other requirements to complete the licensing process.
Associate therapists are required to regularly meet with a clinical supervisor to review cases and get additional support and guidance. Basically, if you work with me, you're getting two therapists for one!
Do you offer services to clients in other states?
Unfortunately, due to licensing regulations, I cannot see clients located outside of the state of California. If you need a referral, and you're in another state, I would be happy to find folks licensed and/or provisionally licensed in your state. Reach out!
Are you accepting new clients at this time?
I am! Please contact me to set up a 15-20 minute phone consultation at no charge to you to help you determine fit and connection.
Do you take insurance?
Unfortunately, I do not accept insurance. Please know that there is a possibility for potential reimbursement from your insurance company.
How this works: you pay me directly, and I will provide you with a "super bill," that you would submit to your insurance company. If they cover some of the cost, they will pay you back directly.
It is your responsibility to work with your insurance company and benefits.
Where do you practice?
I am currently seeing clients virtually in the state of California. I am also seeing clients in person in Los Feliz (Los Angeles area).
Who is your supervisor?
