Counseling FAQs

By Kathleen Oravec

Midtown Sacramento Marriage Counselor and Therapist (8)

How much do you charge for your psychotherapy and counseling sessions?

I offer traditional hourly rates, special introductory couple packages (including a current special of 4 sessions for $360), and sliding scale when appropriate. Please contact me and I would be happy to discuss pricing further with you.

Fees are paid per session and I accept cash, credit cards and personal check.

If your insurance plan is a PPO, my services may covered, and I can provide you with a statement of services which you can submit for reimbursement. Please check with your insurance company for your plan’s mental health coverage for ‘out of network’ providers. Also, if you have an HSA with an associated payment card that has a Visa or MasterCard logo, you can typically use that card to pay for our sessions through Square.

Please note I give Kaiser members a discount for couples counseling as that is not something that Kaiser will cover.

Please remember if you are looking around and qualifying counseling services with other therapists to please make sure they are LICENSED and NOT INTERNS. I am a fully licensed family and marriage therapist and offer the most affordable rates in Sacramento.

Do you accept insurance?

No. Insurance does not apply to my services.

When do you schedule counseling appointments?

My office hours are 12 noon – 8pm on Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and on weekends – Saturdays and Sundays.   E-mail me or call to request an appointment.

Are you a licensed therapist?

Yes, I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in the State of California.

Are your psychotherapy services confidential?

Yes, to the extent allowable by law. If you need more information about this please telephone me.

What ages do you counsel? Do you provide therapy to children?

I work with adults and teenagers/adolescents in Sacramento. I do not work with younger children.
