I provide therapy to teens, adults, couples and families, and have various therapeutic specialties. Therapy is most commonly provided in 50-minute individual, couple or family sessions, though some sessions may be longer as needed. I see clients both in person and by video appointment, using HIPPA-compliant software. Video therapy is available to clients who are located throughout California.


I am qualified to supervise Associate Marriage and Family Therapists, Associate Clinical Social Workers and Professional Clinical Counselor Interns as they obtain the required 3,000 hours to sit for the Board of Behavioral Sciences licensing exam in California. If you are on your road to licensure and have an interest in one of my specialty areas, you’re encouraged to reach out to see how we can work together toward achieving your goal.

Fees and Insurance

My fee is currently $125 per 50-minute hour. Cash, check, and all major credit cards are accepted (processed via Square and Stripe). Financial resources should not be an obstacle to receiving therapy. I do have a limited number of sliding scale spaces available.

I accept claims from the State of California Victim Compensation Program (CalVCP) and participate in the LYRA Employee Assistance Program.

I am an in-network provider with: Cigna Behavioral Health, ComPsych and United Behavioral Health (United, Optum, US Behavioral Health). If I am not a network provider for your plan, but you have a Preferred Provider Organization (PPO) plan and are interested in using your insurance, I can provide a “superbill,” a statement that you can submit to your insurance company at the end of each month to receive reimbursement.
