Ken Howard, LCSW is in the office weekdays (Monday through Friday), with day and evening appointments available. If you only want to see Ken, remember that employers in California are legally required to give you time off of work to receive “medically necessary” health services such as psychotherapy (under the auspices of the Americans with Disabilities Act and the Family Medical Leave Act).
But taking time off work on a weekday on a weekly basis sometimes just isn’t feasible due to commuting to and from Ken’s office in LA’s notorious traffic, or because of your particular job demands. Phone sessions and Skype sessions are available, too. But if your schedule at work prevents you from coming to therapy during the weekdays at all, GayTherapyLA is proud to offer weekend counseling and weekend therapy for gay men from associate staff that includes very qualified Master’s-level therapists (who are registered with the California Board of Behavioral Sciences) who work under the employment and clinical supervision of Ken Howard, LCSW, who offer appointments in the office on weekends and some earlier weekday mornings.
Currently, the associate clinician is Amanda Jablon, MSW, Associate Clinical Social Worker. Insurance reimbursement MAY be possible, as long as you have a PPO plan with out-of-network benefits (no HMO plans) who will reimburse for MFT interns or clinical social work associates; health plans will vary on their coverage policies, and it is up to you to contact your health insurance plan to clarify your reimbursement options. Receipts will be provided to you, but please check with your health plan for information regarding authorizations, verification of out-of-network coverage, deductibles, and reimbursement policies.
