Dr. Phillips has specialties in the following areas:
Dr. Phillips understands that therapy is an investment. CBT is designed to be a more short-term, tools-driven type of therapy, which means that the average number of sessions is much smaller than other types of therapy, resulting in an overall savings of time and money. Also, the commitment that Dr. Phillips has to her ongoing education is reflected in the fees and the quality of care that she provides.
Intake Session (60 minutes): 265
Follow-up Sessions (50 minutes): 245 (cash/check) or 255 (credit card)
Like many psychologists in California, Dr. Lisa Phillips does not contract with insurance companies because they make it cumbersome to be an in-network provider, and often do not focus on quality of care. However, some insurance companies may reimburse for out-of-network providers, so Dr. Phillips can provide a billing statement (aka "superbill") for the client to submit to insurance for potential reimbursement.
Dr. Phillips can better estimate the total number of sessions after completing the first assessment. Average length of therapy is about 12-16 sessions, sometimes fewer, sometimes more, depending on the complexity of the issue and client motivation to complete assignments. In fact, many of the treatment protocols are completed in 10 sessions or less, and children in particular often meet their treatment goals in 5-10 sessions.
