Where do you meet? We meet in Lower Pacific Heights on Fillmore at Sutter.
When do you meet and how often? We meet weekly on Thursdays, 12:30 p.m. - 2:30 p.m. This is an 8-week series which one can start at any point.
Is this a drop-in group? This is not a drop-in group. However, new members are welcome to contact us at anytime to see about joining. We ask all members to commit to the full 8-week series from whatever point they start.
What is the size of the group? We keep the group size small intentionally. We have up to 7 members (plus Alexis and Katy).
Are babies welcome? Coming to group solo also frees you to be cared for with out the distraction of caring for a little one. Our intention is to have the group be a space for moms to authentically share how things are going, including the dark and uncomfortable parts. Some moms feel less comfortable sharing certain feelings with their baby present. For these reasons, we suggest moms make childcare arrangements during group while we also understand that sometimes childcare falls through and/or isn't yet established and we wouldn't want that to be a barrier to attending.
Do you take insurance? We do not work directly with any insurance companies. However, if you have an insurance plan with out-of-network benefits, you may be able to receive reimbursement for all or a portion of the group fee. Please check your coverage carefully by asking your insurance provider the following questions:
Do I have mental health benefits?
Do I have out-of-network mental health benefits? If yes, is group therapy covered (CPT 90853)?
How much does my plan cover for an out-of-network therapy session?
What is my deductible and has it been met?
How many sessions per calendar year does my plan cover?
Do I need pre-authorization before beginning therapy?
If you wish to seek reimbursement from your insurance company, we will provide you with a monthly, itemized statement. You may then submit your charges for our group sessions to your insurer for reimbursement. Some insurers require that we include a diagnosis of record on the bill. We can discuss how much you wish to share with your health plan.
What is the cost? The cost is $70 per 2-hour session. What form(s) of payment do you take? We accept cash, check, HSA/FSA card, or credit card.
