Before Initial Appointment
You will get an email from Susan Farber, LMFT, client portal. Please use this link to sign in to the secure patient portal, and read, review, and e-sign all of the intake paperwork. Once you e-sign, your forms will be saved in your electronic chart. It is important that this paperwork be completed prior to the initial appointment so I can answer any questions you may have at that time.
Fees and Payment
The fee for Individual, Family, and Couples Therapy range from $185 to $300 depending upon the length of the session.

I am an in-network provider for the following insurance companies:
- Aetna Behavioral Health
- Blue Cross-UC students only
- HealthNet/MHN [Exclusion HealthNet Federal Services]
- Modern Health
Clients with insurance coverage will be responsible for their copay and deductible as applicable. Insurance sessions are generally 45 minutes in length unless specified.
I offer telehealth therapy sessions via a HIPPA compliant video platform within the State of California. Coaching sessions outside the State of California are available by video and phone. Please contact me directly at (805) 886-5538.
Because both your time and my time are valuable, your appointment is specifically reserved for you. If you cannot keep your appointment, a 24-hour cancellation is required by phone (no text or email). All missed appointments and late cancellations will be charged the full session fee. These fees cannot be billed to insurance. If I am a provider with your insurance, you will be charged the full contracted rate.
