Elena Makarova, MFT Psychotherapy in Palo Alto, South Bay and Mid-Peninsula
Fees and Payment


Please call me for my current fee. My fee for a standard 50-minute psychotherapy hour is based on the usual and customary rates for psychotherapists in this area.


I am a member provider for Aetna and Anthem Blue Cross insurance companies.
I also work as an out-of-network provider with patients, covered by PPO insurance. In this case, I provide an itemized statement of services, so that you can seek reimbursement. In case if your insurance does not fully cover my services, call me to discuss a fee.


Occasionally I have a limited number of spaces at a reduced fee, based on income and ability to pay.
