What are your credentials?

I have more than fifteen years of clinical experience with adolescents, adults, couples, and families. I received my master’s in counseling with a specialization in marriage and family therapy from the University of Massachusetts in 2001. I was licensed as a marriage and family therapist in California in 2005. I’m a member of the California Association of Marriage and Family Therapists (CAMFT.) I completed the externship level of training in emotionally focused therapy (EFT), and regularly attend trainings and freshen my skills through continuing education courses.

I am a professional member of the American Association of Sexuality Educators, Counselors, and Therapists (AASECT.) While I have training in sex therapy, I am not an AASECT certified sex therapist. If you would like to locate one in your area, please visit https://www.aasect.org/referral-directory.

Do you accept insurance?

I’m not an in-network provider with any insurance plans. To use your out-of-network benefits, I’ll provide you with a superbill that you would then submit to your insurance for reimbursement.

I am on the panel of two EAP programs: CONCERN and BDA Morneau Shappell. With a valid authorization, the EAP sessions are at no cost to you. After that, if you wanted to continue, it would be at my usual rates.

What are your usual rates?

For individual counseling, my rate is $130 for a 50-minute session. For couples, family, and conjoint therapy (like co-parenting and divorce counseling), my rate is $150 for a 50-minute session. For off-peak hours, a reduced rate may be available.

How do I know if you’re therapist for me?

Therapy is a commitment in terms of time, energy, and money. You’re investing in yourself and your relationships, and I respect that. I want you to find the right match, where you feel safe and supported but appropriately challenged. Therapy is a collaboration.

So let’s talk! I can be reached at (510) 859-8024  or by email: holly@hollybrownmft.com.
