Mental Health – Salud Mental

Please note: as of October 2019, I am taking new clients. Please contact me at patty@liberationhealingarts.com or go here to sign up for my therapy list.

pa.headshot.seriousI can see clients who communicate in Spanish and/or English.  I have clinical competence in supporting folks from LGBTQQIA+ communities, as well as people who are survivors of trauma, people who struggle with emotional regulation, and people who need support with recovery from addictive and self-destructive behaviors, among other competence areas.

Rates

I currently only accept self-pay clients, and I am in the process of enrolling as an in-network provider with BCBS.* My provisional rates through 12/31/19 are as follows:

Individual – Initial Appointment – new clients – $130 – usually 60 mins
Individual – Initial Appointment – returning clients – $100 – usually 60 mins
Individual – Ongoing sessions $75 – 100 – usually around 50-55 mins

Couple – Initial Appointment – $125 – usually 60 mins
Couples – Sliding Scale $100 – 125 – usually 60 mins

I offer a limited number of lower cost sessions, which I prioritize for supporting work with LGBTQQIA+ clients and People of Color clients; currently there are no reduced fee spots available. Please email patty@liberationhealingarts.com to inquire about when reduced fee spaces may open up. Go here for more on my rates.

*Due to limitations that BCBS places on who they will allow in their networks, it is unlikely I will be included as an in-network provider in every BCBS plan. Based on my research, I believe I will be allowed into Blue Options, Blue Advantage, Blue Select and State Health Plans. At this time, I do not anticipate being allowed into the Blue Value (soon to be Blue Home) network, which is most ACA plans. My plan is to engage in some advocacy with BCBS to try and get into this network, since so many folks have insurance through the ACA. I know insurance can be confusing and frustrating, and I commit to be as transparent as possible about these realities while working with you.

More on my work

My life and work experiences also make me uniquely positioned to provide culturally competent support to individuals who work in social justice and social movement spaces, as I understand first-hand many of the dynamics which are present in revolutionary and radical spaces.  Further, my work is informed by an anti-racist, anti-oppression, and anti-patriarchal ethos.

It may take you time to find a therapist who is a good fit for you, and even if you discover that working with me is not the right choice for you, I will strive to help connect you with the appropriate resources.
