THERAPY WITH AMBER

Video Chat Therapy

I provide a warm and relational approach to therapy.  I will join with you in a gentle yet deep dive into the patterns that are no longer serving you. If you're looking for healing an issue for the last time, I'm here for it.  For more about my approach to therapy, please click here.

I provide video chat therapy to anyone whose primary residence is in California state or Washington state. I use a confidential, HIPAA compliant video chat platform that feels similar to Zoom or FaceTime.  All you need is a phone, tablet, or computer that is equipped with a camera, microphone, and an internet connection.  

 

Rates/Fees

50-minute sessions are $175

90-minute sessions are $315

Special discounted rates apply for:

BIPOC individuals, counseling and social work graduate school students, interns, and associates.

Please contact me for more information.

Payment Options:

I am an out-of-network provider, which means I do not directly bill to insurance, however many insurance plans offer partial reimbursement for out-of-network services with a few additional steps. In some cases, a Singe Case Agreement can be arranged with your insurance. Health insurance plans and benefits vary. If you are interested in using your health insurance, please call your insurance provider to inquire about Single Case Agreements and/or reimbursement for out-of-network counseling services. Insurance procedure codes frequently used are 90837, 90875, 90791.  

Reduced Fee Options

While I believe that mental health services are a basic human right that should be made available to everyone, we do not live in a system that does. Finances should not be a barrier to therapy, and yet it so often is.  I do have reduced fee sessions available for clients with financial need. If these sessions are filled, a waiting list is available

Free Consult:

I offer a free, 15 minute phone or video chat consultation to anyone who is interested in online therapy with me. This is a great opportunity to determine if I am the right fit for you.

FEEDBACK I’VE RECEIVED

“I have never felt as comfortable opening up to anyone as I have with Amber. She is the most understanding and compassionate person I have ever met. Something about her presence is so warm and welcoming. After speaking wiht her, I always feel so inspired. I wish I could have her come live with me so I could talk to her every day!”

“Amber is an outstanding marriage and family therapist, compassionate supervisor, and brilliant teacher. In  her practice and teaching, she does not only draw from an impressive number of years of experience and above-the-cut education but also her innate sensibility for the human psyche. I heartily refer clients to her and cannot recommend her strongly enough. I wish there were more therapists who had her solid common sense and her boundless empathy. If you have a chance to work with her, you will not walk away disappointed.”
