Fees and Payment Procedures

We offer highly specialized services related to family law issues. Our staff have a range of fees for different services. In many cases, we require deposits in advance so that there is no confusion or conflict that interferes with treatment or evaluation. Deposits may need to be paid weeks in advance to reserve an appointment time.

We do not accept direct payment from insurance companies or handle insurance billing for clients. Though we are not panel providers with an insurance company, most insurance companies will accept us for reimbursement for psychotherapy (but not for mediations or evaluations). The client should contact their insurance company for information on reimbursement. Our bookkeeper, Mona Eckerman, will send you monthly statements with diagnostic and procedure codes for insurance reimbursement, if appropriate.

For ongoing work, such as mediation or therapy, payment is made before a session begins, in the form of cash, check or credit card. We accept most major credit cards. The client will be charged a fee of $50 for any bounced checks. The client will also be charged for appointments not cancelled within 48 business day hours (i.e. canceling a Monday appointment on Friday is not sufficient notice). For evaluations, cancellation must be given within 7 court days to avoid a charge.

Please call our office for more information about fees and payment procedures at (310) 392-6163 or email Mona Eckerman, our Office Manager, at meckerman@lundstrachan.com.

Directions and Map

We are located at 2510 Main Street, Suite 201, Santa Monica, CA 90405. Traveling west on the 10 freeway, you can take the 4th Street Exit, turn left onto 4th street, go two blocks to Pico Boulevard. At Pico, turn right, go about 2 blocks to Main Street, and turn left. Continue on Main Street for about 5 long blocks, to 2510 Main Street. Our cross street is Ocean Park Boulevard, which we are just north of, in a 2-story tan office building. Our front door is bounded by “Cafe Noir” restaurant and a hair salon called “Dino Clark”. There is a door code for entry: *5720. We are in the first suite you will come to at the top of the stairs.

PARKING: There are 2-hour meters up and down Main Street which take Quarters and Credit Cards.

There is also parking in the city parking lot located behind our building (it runs parallel to Main Street and is entered from “Hollister Street”, which is one long block north of Ocean Park Boulevard.).

1) Find a spot; 2) Note the parking space number you are in (written on the ground in WHITE); and 3) Proceed to one of the three “Pay Machines” to make payment. (There are blue and white signs directing you to them.) This machine takes payment in coins, dollar bills, and credit cards. Most spots are for 3 hours; some are up to 6 hours.

After parking in the City lot, go “under” the building until you are on the sidewalk of Main Street. Go right. Just past the beauty salon, you will see a security access box. Dial in the access code (*5720) for entrance. Please note: do not park under our building. It is reserved for tenants only and you will be towed.

Disabled Access

Although we have had disabled clients, please note that our offices are on the second floor of a building that does not have an elevator. There are disabled bathrooms on the first floor.

Setting up an Appointment

Please note: it is always a good idea to make administrative preparations as far in advance as possible (payment and the possible signing of consent forms, stipulations and agreements). Unfortunately, all sessions cancelled less than 48 business day hours in advance will be charged to the canceling party (7 court days in advance for evaluation appointments). Although we may make a courtesy reminder call, it is the client’s responsibility to give the required cancellation notice within the specified time.

When you have your initial appointment, please come to the office 15 minutes early if you have to complete paperwork and make payment. You can save time by completing the Intake Form before you come in.
