Information for Referring Providers

Thank you for referring your patient to Stella Nova! We love partnering with our medical colleagues to support your patients’ mental and physical health. 

Some important information for you before submitting a referral:

  • Stella Nova therapists are available to work with adult individuals and couples age 18+ in the State of California. While we specialize in working with women and nonbinary clients, we welcome people of all genders.
  • We are a private pay clinic and will provide our clients with superbills upon request.
  • When you submit a referral, a representative from Stella Nova will follow up within one business day to schedule an initial consultation with our Intake Specialist. Most new clients are offered an appointment with a therapist within 1-2 weeks.
  • We do not provide crisis services and are not an appropriate resource for anyone unable to keep themselves physically safe, or who is a danger to others. 
  • We are currently seeing clients online, and also have limited slots for in-person therapy in San Francisco at our Lower Pacific Heights office.
