FAQs

What are your hours?

Wednesdays from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m.; Thursdays from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m.; and Fridays from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. PST.

Are you seeing clients in person?

I’m doing teletherapy exclusively, which means by video only.  It has a number of advantages for clients: convenience since there’s no commute; being in the privacy of your own home or office; better public health; not having to find childcare, etc. Also, I get to see you in your natural habitat! But there may be some trade-offs, too, so I’m happy to talk about this during the free phone consult.

What are your credentials?

I have twenty years of clinical experience, having received my master’s in counseling with a specialization in marriage and family therapy from the University of Massachusetts in 2001. I was licensed as a marriage and family therapist in California in 2005. I completed the externship level of training in emotionally focused therapy (EFT), and regularly attend trainings and freshen my skills through continuing education courses.

While I am trained in sex therapy, I am not an AASECT certified sex therapist. If you would like to locate one in your area, please visit https://www.aasect.org/referral-directory.

Do you accept insurance?

I’m not an in-network provider with any insurance plans. To use your out-of-network benefits, I’ll provide you with a superbill that you would then submit to your insurance for reimbursement.

What are your usual rates?

For individual counseling, my rate is $150 for a 50-minute session. For couples/conjoint counseling, my rate is $170 for a 50-minute session.

How do I know if you’re the therapist for me?

Therapy is a commitment in terms of time, energy, and money. You’re investing in yourself and your relationships, and I respect that. I want you to find the right match since above all, therapy is a collaboration.
