My hours are 2:00 PM to 9:00 PM, Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. My fee for a one-hour session is $80.00. I do not take insurance, but I can give you a "super bill" each session, which you can turn into your insurance company for reimbursement. I do require 24 HOURS ADVANCE NOTICE if you wish to change or cancel an appointment without charge. This allows me to offer the time to someone else who may be waiting.
If you need further information, or wish to make an appointment, please e-mail me or call me.

Tina B Tessina, PhD LMFT Q&A
What do you love most about your job?
I love helping clients change, learn how to create happiness instead of stress, and improve the intimacy and joy in their relationships.
What inspired you to start your own business?
I lost almost all of my immediate and extended family by the time I was 18. I married at 20, divorced at 27, and then had to process all my grief. I found an excellent counselor and mentor, and eventually realized helping others learn what I had learned was my calling. I went back to school and got my Masters in Counseling Psychology, got licensed by the State of California, started my private practice, and went back to school for my PhD. I love working with my clients and I know I doing what I was born to do.
Why should our clients choose you?
Because I'm very successful at helping clients make the changes they want and need. Most of my business has been word of mouth referral, because my clients are very satisfied.
