Perhaps we can answer them here!

I'm interested in therapy, but I am concerned with the cost. 

We completely understand! Therapy is a significant investment in your self-care and may mean making some other changes in your life. As a nonprofit organization, we strive to set a fee that does not put a strain on your life. Clinicians at Center for Mindful Psychotherapy (CMP) have made a commitment to offer sliding-scale fee structures. Based on what is affordable to you, we will match you with a therapist who will best fit your needs and your budget. You can browse CMP Therapists, and if you see someone who feels like a good fit, you are welcome to contact them directly to inquire about their specific fees.


Do you take insurance?

We are not currently on any insurance panels. However, if your insurance company offers reimbursements for mental health coverage, we are happy to provide you with monthly or quarterly receipts.


I have a really busy schedule and I can only see a therapist in the morning/afternoon/evening/weekend, do you have a therapist available during that time?

No problem! CMP therapists are available mornings, afternoons, evenings and even on weekends. Please give us a call to check for availability. More often than not, we will be able to match you with a therapist who is available when you are.


You say you offer therapy services in the Bay Area, where are your offices?

CMP does not have one central office. Instead, CMP has offices in many locations throughout the Bay Area including San Francisco, Oakland, Berkeley, and Palo Alto. Some of our clinicians work out of CMP offices in multiples neighborhoods and cities. Please check out CMP Therapists to find out where therapy services are offered near you. Or contact us, and we will make every effort to connect you with a CMP therapist in your desired location.


Do you provide online therapy or therapy with services like Skype?

Yes, online therapy or telehealth is an option if you reside in the state of California. When you contact us, please specify that you are looking for that kind of service.


Who are the CMP therapists?

CMP is comprised of Associate Marriage & Family Therapists. In the state of California, the MFT (Marriage & Family Therapy) license is a common license for a psychotherapist to hold. All of our therapists have completed masters programs in counseling psychology, are working toward their MFT license, and have acquired significant training and experience. AMFTs are trained to work with individuals, couples/relationships, children, and families.

CMP therapists have experience working with many different populations in different therapeutic settings, such as schools, hospitals, community mental health clinics, and restorative justice systems. These bright professionals represent a variety of different communities and identities. Together, we are committed to the liberation of all people. To be clear, CMP stands in allyship with all oppressed peoples and is committed to psychotherapy aimed at dismantling systems of privilege and oppression. We also support those who are beginning to examine their own privilege - no matter their current stage.
