General FAQ

What is the cost of a session with you?

My standard fee is $245 for a 50-minute session. I offer a limited number sliding scale appointments based on ability to pay. If you need a reduced fee, please let me know. If I am unable to accommodate your financial situation, one of the Associates in my practice may be able to meet your financial needs. Otherwise, I will try my best to assist you in finding appropriate referrals.

Do you take insurance?

I am not in-network with any insurance companies. However, I am happy to provide you with a monthly statement of services rendered (a “superbill”) if you wish to seek reimbursement from your insurance company. I recommend that you to contact your insurance company prior to the first session if you are seeking reimbursement in order to get more information about your individual coverage, including deductible information, percentage of fees covered for an out-of-network provider, and number sessions covered.

What is your cancellation policy?

I maintain a 24-hour cancellation policy. Cancellations made within less 24 hours prior to the appointment time (including all same-day cancellations) are charged the full session fee.

Do you offer online and in-person sessions?

Yes.  For clients living in California, I offer online sessions through a HIPAA-compliant virtual office. I also am available to see clients in person at my office in Marina del Rey, CA. Due to Covid-19, some restrictions and policies for in-person therapy are currently in place. You can inquire more about such restrictions and policies via email or phone.

How long does therapy treatment usually last?

Unfortunately, it is not possible for a psychotherapist to know, in advance, how many sessions may be necessary or appropriate for a given client. Therapy is an individualized process that takes place over a period of time, determined collaboratively through conversations we have together.

What is the best way to connect with you?

You can contact me via phone at 424.384.3772 or via email at JessicaOiferMFT@gmail.com. I do my best to return most messages within 24 hours. If you reach during non-business hours, including weekends or holidays, I will return your message on the next business day. Text messaging is reserved for current client appointment scheduling.
