Individual Counseling Services
At Lifetime Counseling and Consulting®, we specialize in providing individual one on one counseling services which are tailored to the unique needs of our clients. Therapy is a collaborative process, and clients meet with their therapist here every other week (twice monthly) minimum. Appointments are usually kept at the same time/day for ease of continuity of care.
Currently, due to COVID19, counseling services are provided virtually through a variety of cloud-based platforms. We currently only provide counseling, therapy, and consultation services to clients in California.
Lifetime Counseling and Consulting® is a fee for service practice, which means that we do not accept insurance. For those that would like to use their insurance benefits to cover services, you will need to see if your insurance benefits cover out of network therapy services. It is the client’s responsibility to verify benefit coverage and to see if they are eligible for reimbursement. We are able to provide a superbill for services provided. Sliding scale is not offered. Services are non-refundable.
