FAQ + Pricing

Do you offer sliding scale?

I offer sliding scale slots to individuals/couples based on circumstance and income. If you feel as though you are a potential candidate for sliding scale, please contact me to discuss your situation.

Can I use my insurance?

I am an out-of-network provider and do not currently take insurance. However, some or all of your fees (even couples work) may be covered by your health insurance, if you have outpatient mental health coverage.  I am happy to provide you with a monthly billing statement if you wish to submit to your insurance company. Note that my receipt of your sessions and fees is no guarantee of their policies. Always check with your insurance company about their stipulations around reimbursement. Fees you pay for therapy services that are not reimbursed by insurance may be deductible as medical expenses.


I know therapy can seem costly, but consider it an investment. It’s an investment in YOU and you’re worth it.

I offer a FREE 20 minute phone consultation so you can get a sense of how I work and see if we’d be a good fit. My standard rates are:

$170 per 50 minute individual counseling session, including EMDR

$230 per 75 minute couples/family session


I accept cash, personal check, and most major credit/debit cards

Cancellation Policy

If you are unable to attend a session, please make sure you cancel at least 24 hours beforehand. Otherwise, you may be charged for the full rate of the session.

I work crazy hours. Can I still see you?

Absolutely! I am more than happy to see clients in the evening and I can sometimes make accommodations to connect on a weekend. Just give me a call at (510) 292-4253 or contact me to set something up.
