Getting Started

Initial Consultation

Please feel free to contact me by phone for a free 15 minute phone consultation. Also I am available for a free 20 minute in office session in order for you to see if we are a good fit. Because therapy is such a personal and sacred experience I believe that it is essential for you to feel that we are a good fit to begin working together.

Rates and Sliding Scale

My rate for individuals is 80.00 for 55 minute sessions. Longer sessions are also available as well as bi-weekly sessions if appropriate. My rate for couple work is 90.00 for a 60 minute session. I also offer sliding scale fee for a limited period of time. 

Payment Options

Payment can be made by check, cash or card at the time of the session.

Health Insurance

I accept Blue Shield, Blue Cross, Aetna, Magellan Health, Beacon Health, Value Options, Tri-Care, Military One Source, Western Health Advantage, MHN Health Net, Kaiser (if you are able to get an authorization from Kaiser).

Appointments

Individual and couples therapy usually take place on a weekly basis. However, the frequency of your sessions are determined on an individual basis depending on your needs. I recommend weekly sessions in the beginning so that we can develop a therapeutic relationship and can more readily identify your issues and concerns.  If you prefer I am also able to provide therapy services via a tele-health confidential web site.

24 Hour Cancellation Policy

A scheduled appointment means that time is reserved for you only. Therefore I would like you to notify me 24 hours in advance if you need to cancel. The normal schedule fee will be charged if you notify me in less than 24 hours.
