Getting in Touch
Please note that due to a full caseload, Dr. Penela is unfortunately not accepting new patients at this time. As availability changes, this website will be updated.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, all therapy services are currently being provided virtually via a HIPAA-compliant platform (RingCentral). To learn more about online therapy, please click here. When it is safe to resume in-person therapy sessions, I will see therapy patients in my office in Pembroke Pines, Florida.
The cost of the initial intake consultation is $275 (60 minutes). At this time, we will talk about the challenges you're facing, and importantly, we'll set goals and discuss the best way to help you meet them. Follow-up therapy appointments are $225 per session (45 minutes). Typically, we'll meet on a weekly basis, but scheduling varies depending on each person's needs.
Unfortunately, I am not listed as an in-network provider on any insurance panels. For patients eligible for out-of-network benefits from their insurance company, I will provide you with the necessary documentation so that you are able to file with your insurance company for reimbursement. For help with getting reimbursed for out-of-network costs, you may want to check out Reimbursify. I do not have a relationship with them - I simply believe that this service can help some individuals who would like extra support when submitting insurance claims.
