Telemedicine/ Online Therapy for Calif. Residents:   All online communications will go through a third party secure website to meet HIPPA and security requirements. I offer Online a la carte or on Retainer. It can be canceled by you or me at any time and I reserve the right to not accept a client for online or continuing online work if it doesn’t seem advisable as online therapy is not for everyone. There are no contracts, minimum terms or upfront fees but payment must be received prior to the commencement of any session so that valuable session time is not wasted. I do not offer Couples Counseling online as I have not found it as effective as in-office. Certain informational documents and an Informed Consent Form (just like in-office therapy) must be completed and returned before the start of any sessions. The below fees do not apply to Legal Cases, which require significant extra work and documentation. It also does not apply to existing in-office clients.

  • Phone: 45-minutes $100. per session, or 30 minutes $75.
  • Video: 45-minute $150. per session
  • Email or text: $75. per week for unlimited messages from you, or $230 per month if paid in full in advance. Please note that I will use up to 50 minutes per week reading and responding to your messages. I generally respond 2 to 4 times per week and take most Saturdays and Sundays off.
  • Retainer, Full Service TeleHealth Plan:  $350 per month for unlimited messaging (email or text) and up to 3 per month 45-minute phone or video sessions. Subject to openings and times available. Payment must be received monthly in advance. This service is for previous patients and clients or by special agreement on a case-by-case basis for others.

Your life does not get better by chance, it gets better by change.

About Valentino Therapy

Psychotherapist (California Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist), artist, animal lover, SF Giants fan...I write mostly about daily life and psychology matters, concerns and disorders and how to get help or help yourself. I write about life and often laugh at it but I also write about very serious matters that affect our lives. I'm a psychotherapist (Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist) with a speciality in addiction, anxiety, depression, achievement, relationships and several other areas, which is work I particularly enjoy but the nature of it requires that I also enjoy other creative and physical pursuits. Personal: I love animals beyond a reasonable measure (reptiles excluded).
