Helping people is my passion, but as a counselor who specializes in grief among other things, this last year has been busier and harder than most. I am still helping other therapists learn and help people on their own, but my time where I can see clients is rather full at the moment.
I want to hear from you and help you. Obviously, if you are in crisis contact emergency help, but if you want to start therapy soon, I’d love to make sure I can reach out to you when my current clients achieve their goals and finish or take a break from their scheduled therapy sessions.
Please let me know how to reach you via this contact form and I will contact you when I next have availability!

Frequency of sessions Typically, psychotherapy involves weekly, 50-minute sessions. After the first month or so, therapeutic reasons may dictate more or less frequent appointments. But, initially, and for the most part, I see people in 50 minute sessions on a weekly basis.
Fees My fee for a 50-minute session is $150. EMDR therapy is often done in 80-minute sessions. The fee for an 80-minute EMDR therapy session is $225. It is possible to do EMDR therapy in 50-minute sessions, and the fee for those is $150. My fee for group therapy is $50 per session. My fee for group supervision is also $50. Packages are available for individual and group case consultation.
Forms of Payment Payments may be made with cash, check, Mastercard, Visa, or with prior agreement, PayPal. Payment is due at the beginning of each session.
Insurance? Sharon Skelton, LMFT, and all counselors affiliated with Midtown Counselor are “out of network” for most insurance plans. In some cases, insurance companies will reimburse most of my fee, even though I am not a plan providers. In that event, I can provide you with the right paperwork to submit to your insurance company for reimbursement. I also accept Victims of Crime Compensation from the State of California, or VOCA.
Questions? I welcome any questions you have about my other office policies by text, phone call, or email.
