Westside Psych prides itself on providing comprehensive care and offering an array of therapy, consultation, and speaking engagement services to meet your needs. Our treatment approach is both evidence-based and holistic.
As children and adolescents grow, they often experience a myriad of social, emotional, and mood-related challenges. We utilize a range of therapeutic approaches, including art therapy, play therapy, and traditional talk therapy, in order to assist youth with both developing insight into their challenges and learning ways of harnessing their personal strengths.
We support couples working through a variety of issues and can help you to recognize and resolve conflicts and repair your relationship. During couples therapy we will help you to build skills to communicate more effectively, cultivate intimacy, and change problematic patterns so that you can enjoy a more satisfying relationship.
By providing a nonjudgmental space for you to explore your thoughts, feelings, and behaviors, we will help you develop both insight and tools to more effectively navigate your life.
We provide a range of consultation services. Consultation areas include (but are not limited to): clinical consultation to other mental and medical health professionals and organizations; education and providing feedback on psychological concepts to writers and producers in the film and TV industry (e.g., script and on-set consultation), and parenting consultation/coaching.
We provide speaking engagements, workshops, and presentations to a range of organizations for various purposes. Examples of topics include (but are not limited to): mindful eating; sexual assault prevention on college campuses; stress management in the workplace; recovery-oriented care in medical settings; and parenting neurodivergent children.
We use Simple Practice and Zoom. Both are secure HIPAA-compliant telehealth platforms. They work on all popular browsers as well as smartphones using iOS or Android, giving you access to therapy from wherever you are. We can also do phone sessions if video is not possible.
We understand that schedules and distance may make it difficult for you to visit our office in person, so we offer an alternative option:
Each of our psychologists sets their own fee. For questions about how fees and billing work, feel free to contact us for more information.
We believe that mental health services should be accessible by all, which is why each of our psychologists provide therapy at a reduced rate for a limited number of clients who are not able to afford our full fee. We want to empower you towards reaching your mental health goals, and are happy to help you get there. Please contact us to learn more about this service.
You are entitled to a Good Faith Estimate of your treatment costs at Westside Psych in accordance with the No Surprises Act (Under Section 2799B-6 of the Public Health Service Act). Go here to learn more.
What this means is that you are responsible for paying the full fee upfront for each session. At the end of every month, we will provide you with an invoice (also known as a “superbill”) which you will then submit to your insurance company for reimbursement. Depending on your plan, you will usually get a percentage of what you already paid back to you, which can help offset the out-of-pocket cost of therapy.
We understand that therapy is an investment – both emotionally and financially. In order to provide you with the highest level and most comprehensive care, we are not affiliated with any particular insurance panel. This is to ensure that we are working from a clinically compassionate space, without having limitations or influence from insurance companies, which can often stipulate what type and the length of treatment clients receive.
We know it can be challenging to navigate insurance as not all plans are the same, and it’s not always clear how to make sure you’re maximizing your benefits. Here, you will find some guidelines that will hopefully make this process more transparent and less daunting.
If you're a new client, we invite you to schedule a free consultation, so we can talk through the best path to meet your mental health goals and truly live a fulfilled life.
