Kaiser Clients

We have created this page to help with the step-by-step process that is necessary to schedule an appointment through your Kaiser insurance plan.

1. Obtain an authorization for services. You will need to call Kaiser’s Behavioral Health line at 800-900-3277 and ask for an “authorization for services at Circle of Life Center.” There will be an initial intake either on the phone or in-person and the authorization document will be sent to you and to Circle of Life Center.

2. Call or Text Circle of Life Center at 805-494-1414 or email infocircleoflifecenter@gmail.com to see if we have received the authorization. If you have an authorization document but we have not yet received it, we will need to call Kaiser and verify your authorization.

3. Schedule an Appointment. Once authorization is confirmed, you can schedule an appointment online or you can call and our friendly office staff will help find a time that works with your schedule to meet with one of our caring and committed counselors.

If you are a Kaiser client and you are experiencing a mental health crisis, please call the Kaiser Crisis Line at
