Elizabeth Schofield-Bickford, MFT
Child and Adult Jungian Analyst, Certified Sandplay Therapist
Finding a therapist that is a good fit can be a challenge. I would encourage you to make a list of questions and concerns and make phone calls and meet a few people. Take referrals from friends, family or other professionals. Your comfort is most important. It is reasonable to feel anxious in your search until you find someone with whom you feel safe.
What is your fee?
Please email or call for fee schedule. Sessions are 50 minutes. I do have a limited number of slots designated for a sliding scale. I see clients once or twice a week.
Do you take insurance?
I am able to accept most PPO plans. If your insurance accepts out of network providers, I am happy to furnish you with a monthly super-bill for you to submit for reimbursement. Please call your insurance provider to confirm your benefits. Payment is due at the time of service.
How long will it take?
This depends on what you are working on. Together we will decide what course to take.
Will I feel better right away?
You may and then again... If you have been repressing emotions you can expect to feel stirred up and perhaps relieved at the same time. Knowing that you’re getting help may bring you relief, but unearthing deeper feelings may be uncomfortable. I encourage you to stay with the discomfort during the initial period. There is much growth on the other side.
If you have any questions or would like to inquire about scheduling, please don't hesitate to email me or call me at 310.226.7066.
