I'm available to meet with clients for in-person and virtual sessions. My offices are conveniently located in the Glen Park neighborhood of San Francisco, one block away from the Glen Park BART station, multiple bus routes (44, 23, 36, 52) and J-Church Muni. For clients who are unable to travel to the office, I'm available to meet via phone or video call - this is a great option for stay at home parents, commuters, and people who travel for work. Weekday and Saturday/Sunday openings are available.
Fees & Payment
My full fee is $160 for a 60-minute session. I reserve certain slots at a lower rate for clients who require a sliding scale fee. Please email me at RachaelButlerMA@gmail.com if you’d like to apply for a sliding scale arrangement. Fees are payable by credit card, debit card, cash, check, or money order.
Many clients are able to receive insurance reimbursement for our sessions if they have out of network coverage. I can provide you with the paperwork necessary to submit to your insurance company. Please contact your insurance company directly to inquire about your eligibility.
