Making an Appointment
A successful outcome in therapy relies heavily on a positive relationship with your therapist. You will make the most progress with a therapist in an environment of mutual respect, trust, and enjoyment. To get a better understanding of how well we might work together—to see if we click—I offer a complimentary 20 minute “meet and greet” session.  If we decide that it isn’t a good fit, I am happy to give you referrals for someone better suited to your needs.

Insurance & Payment
I am passionate about what I do, and I firmly believe that everyone who wants to change their lives should be able to do so. For this reason, I offer a limited number of reduced rate slots for individuals experiencing financial hardship. I also offer referrals to other professionals and agencies that offer sliding scale fees or that do pro bono work.  
I am currently in the First Choice Health Network and I am a provider for some Kaiser Permanente plans. For all other insurance plans, I am considered an “out-of-network” provider. If I am "out-of-network" for your insurance plan, I am happy to provide you with a detailed receipt that you can submit to your insurance company for possible reimbursement. I accept cash, check, and credit cards.

I meet with clients Monday through Wednesday, and I have daytime and limited evening hours available. Most sessions last 60 minutes. However, 90-120 minute sessions are sometimes recommended when multiple people attend the session or during intake.
