There is no one-size-fits-all approach to the provision of psychological services. Each provider and client brings their unique experiences, values, knowledge, and perspectives into sessions. Dr. Gustman emphasizes starting with services and supports that have some of the greatest evidence of effectiveness, and then individualizing and adjusting those to fit the more nuanced needs of individual clients.
While there is limited availability for services, it is the aim of Dr. Gustman to grow and expand the practice in response to community needs. I frequently have availability for new clients as current clients move toward less frequent sessions or therapy completion.
I am an in-network provider for multiple insurance plans (Optum, United, Aetna, and Blue Shield of CA) are some of the larger plans. I have also entered into single case agreements for assessments and therapy services with other insurance programs, when their members have been unable to access services in a timely manner within their network of providers. Private pay for services are also offered with monthly service invoices (superbills) available upon request.
