New Clients

Availability and Scheduling

If my self-pay times are not a good fit for your schedule, I encourage you to reach out to my associates.

During the shelter in place order to slow the spread of coronavirus/COVID-19, I am meeting with clients via a HIPPA-compliant telehealth video platform and phone.

I meet with weekly clients Monday and Tuesday with appointment times beginning between 9am and 4:30pm Pacific. I do not have weekend availability.

Self-Pay Clients

My fee is $180 for a 50-minute individual or partners session and $280 for a 75-minute partners session.

For self-pay clients, I offer a complimentary 20-minute consultation for us to get to know each other and to ensure a good fit for ongoing sessions. I reserve half of my available psychotherapy slots for insurance and reduced fee clients.

Insurance Clients

My insurance practice is currently full and I am not accepting new insurance clients at this time. Please check back for updates.

I accept Blue Shield and Magellan under provider contract. I also accept out of network benefits from other plans, including Cigna, United Behavioral Health, and Blue Cross. I reserve half of my slots for insurance and reduced fee clients.
