Frequently Asked Questions


Do you take insurance?

Our clients pay privately and we provide invoices which includes codes and information to submit to your insurance company. With PPO, our clients are typically reimbursed partially for fees.


What can I expect from the Intake?

The intake is 50 minutes and a team specialist meets with you for this initial consult session.  For evaluation clients, the intake serves as the parent interview. For therapy or a social emotional class, we typically meet with the child or adolescent together with parent(s). The specialist reviews the history form and talks with the family to learn more about the client’s strengths and challenges. For young children, a play observation is integrated. The intake helps us to have a better sense of fit and guides us to recommend next steps for assessment, treatment, or referral.


What are your fees for services?

We have a broad range of services, specialists, and fees. Please email us for fee information.


Where are you located?

We currently have 2 clinic/studio locations in San Francisco and Burlingame (Peninsula). Both are centrally located, near cafes and shops, with easy parking for convenience.


How long is the treatment?

At Seesaw, we specialize in evidence-based, skills-focused,  goal-oriented, and brief therapy. The length of therapy will depend on the presenting challenges.  Therapy is typically between 3 to 9 months. At times, clients may engage in a different service (for example: individual therapy and then group therapy). Parent coaching is 4 to 8 sessions.
