Fees & Frequently Asked Questions

What do you charge?

Individual Sessions: $180.00 (50 minutes)
Group Sessions: $75.00 (90 minutes)

Do you have a sliding scale?

Yes. I have a limited number of spaces available at a sliding scale rate. These spaces are typically reserved for students and other low-income populations. If you feel you qualify for a sliding scale, please ask about this during our initial phone consultation.

What form of payment do you accept?

I accept personal checks and cash, as well as Victims Of Crime compensation claims. At this time I do not accept health insurance, although I am glad to assist attempts at reimbursement with written receipts for service or Super Bills.

What are your office hours?

Tuesday 7 am – 7 pm
Wednesday 9 am – 2 pm
Thursday 7 am – 6 pm

Can we talk before scheduling an appointment?

Yes. Please contact me directly at (510) 501-2936 for a free 15 minute consultation.

What should I expect at my first session?

The first session is a time for us to get to know one another. You may wish to ask questions about my style and experience. I will certainly be curious about your situation and your hopes/expectations about counseling. We will come to an understanding about the focus of the therapy and how best to proceed.
