Practice Information

If you are a new patient, you may have some questions regarding my practice. Entering into therapy can sometimes be anxiety producing. It is normal to wonder what to expect.

In anticipation, I have listed some information to help you anticipate what to expect regarding my office suite, the parking, sessions and the forms that need to be completed before the first session.

New Patient Information

Session Length

Initial assessment appointments are 90 minutes in length.
Follow up sessions are 45–50 minutes in length.
Once an appointment has been scheduled, this time will be saved exclusively for you, therefore, a 24-hour notice of cancellation is required to avoid being charged for the session.

West Los Angeles Office

Street parking is available on Westgate and Wilshire. There is no available parking in the lot behind the building. Located on the 2nd floor, the office is not handicap accessible due to the lack of an elevator. There is an outdoor stairway that must be taken to access the office.

When you arrive, please switch the call light switch on the wall. Dr. Jo will meet you in the waiting room at your scheduled time. There is a key to the restroom hanging on the wall in the waiting room. The restroom is down the hall from the office.

Encino Office

The office is a pink adobe house on the SE corner of Balboa and Clark. Come up the walkway into the house. The waiting room is the door directly in front of you when you walk inside. The call box is on the small table to the left. Press #3 and a light will come on in my office. You will only hear a "click". I will meet you in the waiting room at your scheduled time.

There is usually plenty of street parking available. There is also parking across the street in the pharmacy paid lot. Parking in the lot is free on Saturdays.

Unfortunately, there is no accessible restroom until I come to the waiting room to meet you. They are all located inside of the house. There is a restroom across the street at the pharmacy if needed.
