Frequently Asked Questions
Do you accept insurance?
Salma currently participates with Anthem BCBS and Kaiser, and she files claims for these plans. If you have a PPO for any other insurance plan, she will provide a statement for you to submit for reimbursement. Contact your insurance company to find out your out-of-network benefits for outpatient counseling services.
What is your policy on confidentiality?
We cannot release or discuss any identifiable information shared in counseling sessions without your written permission. Exceptions to confidentiality are limited to those situations in which we suspect child abuse, or if you report the intention to harm yourself or someone else. We may also have to release information in the event records are subpoenaed by a judge.
Does it mean I'm crazy if I seek counseling?
I'm interested in marriage counseling, but my spouse does not want to come. Can I come alone?
Many times, making the decision to get counseling is the first step to solving the problem and improving your situation.
Please feel free to call or email for any questions or concerns you may have about the counseling process. The initial visit is a good opportunity for a client and therapist to determine if they are a good match together.
