You don’t have to keep trying to just manage, you can thrive. 


How do we get started on our work together?

Email me to schedule a free 20 minute consultation call. It’s so important to feel comfortable with the therapist you choose. I’ll answer your questions to ensure a good fit and that we’ll work well together. 

We’ll initially meet weekly (and later biweekly if you choose) to support you in making changes, accessing resources, discovering tools to try and things to practice each week.

Begin to move through life with tools, greater self-insight, new reactions, improved boundaries, an awareness of your wants and needs, and with a greater love and respect of who you are.

growth and change

Good question. Research shows that our experiences in the world, particularly when we were young, have a profound impact on the person we are today. Our ability to cope with big emotions, how we engage in the world, how we see ourselves, how we view others, and how we believe they view us is primarily formed when we’re young. Counseling can increase our awareness of ourselves and help us “unlearn” those ways of being that aren’t working for us anymore. Through counseling, we can begin to think, act and exist in the world in a way that significantly improves our wellbeing and overall functioning. Research also shows that client-counselor fit is really important. During the free consult call, you can get a sense of my vibe, ask questions and see what feels like the best fit for you.

How does counseling help?


My rate is $200 for a 50 minute session. I offer a limited number of reduced fee spots for clients who demonstrate financial need, though at this time my reduced fee spots are currently full. Open Path Collective is an excellent resource to find therapy for those who require a very low fee, but do not qualify for Medi-Cal/Medicaid. 

What is your rate?


No, I am not in-network with insurance companies for many reasons. My practice is out of network. Please contact your insurance company directly in advance and find out your coverage for “out of network” counseling benefits. If you request, I can provide you with a superbill that you can submit to your insurance company to request reimbursement, if applicable. 

Do you take insurance? 


Under a new federal law, health care providers must give clients who don’t have insurance, or are not using their insurance (including clients who pay out-of pocket and request insurance reimbursement), an estimate of the bill for medical items and services (this includes counseling). 

• You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency items or services, including counseling.
• Ensure your health care provider gives you a Good Faith Estimate in writing at least one business day before your services begin. You can also ask your health care provider, and any other provider you choose, for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule a service. 
• If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your Good Faith Estimate, you can dispute the bill. 
• Make sure to save a copy or picture of your Good Faith Estimate. 

For questions or more information about your right to a Good Faith Estimate, please visit or call the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) at (800) 368-1019.
