How It Works

Making Progress
Getting Started


You can reach out to me through this site or by email or phone.


We’ll start off with a brief phone consultation. During this initial conversation, I'll ask you a few questions about yourself and your reasons for seeking my help. I’ll answer your questions and we can decide if it’s a good fit.


If you decide to take the next step, we’ll set up a time to meet.


I’m currently meeting with people in person in my Oakland, CA office or online via a secure Telehealth platform called Simple Practice. I’m licensed to work with people who are currently located in California.


In our first session, we'll talk about your hopes for therapy and discuss how I can best help you.


Session Length and Frequency

My sessions are usually 50 minutes long with an option for a longer session. 75-minute sessions often work well for couples and families.


Some people choose to see me on a weekly basis, while others prefer a less frequent schedule. I do my best to accommodate your needs while making sure that therapy is working for you.

Making Progress

I'm open to short or long-term work, depending on your needs. If your problem is resolved after a few sessions, you are free to stop (and we’ll celebrate!). Some people benefit from the ongoing support of regular therapy sessions over time.


I'm interested in exploring the topics that are important to you. I'll check in with you from time to time to make sure the conversation we're having feels meaningful and that we're on the right track towards achieving your goals.


I welcome your feedback and encourage you to ask questions about the therapy process and to let me know if something isn’t working for you.


Fees and Insurance


My practice is fee-for-service. I am not “in-network” with an insurance company and I do not bill insurance directly. If you have out-of-network insurance benefits for mental health services, I can provide you with a monthly statement (“a superbill”) that you can submit to your insurance company. You should check with your plan prior to scheduling to confirm your coverage.


Please note that most insurance companies will require a mental health diagnosis for reimbursement.


My current fees are


50-minute individual or couple’s therapy session: $200

75-minute individual or couple’s therapy session: $300
