Scheduling & Rates

If you are interested in finding out whether I might be a good therapist for you, I offer a free 20-minute consultation by phone. 

I invite you to call me at 510-496-6001 and leave a message with several good times to reach you.  Please leave your number twice to make sure I can hear it. 

You may also send me an inquiry through this website or directly to my email address:


  • My sliding scale is $160 to $180 per 60-minute hour.  

  • For couples therapy, I recommend scheduling 75
    minutes for the first session.


  • I am not an in-network provider for any insurance plans at this time.

  • However, I can provide you with a Superbill, a document that you can submit to your insurance company for possible reimbursement.

  • See below for more information.

"Do you take insurance?"

If you have a PPO plan, it's worth calling your insurer to see whether you are eligible for partial reimbursement. When calling your company, talk to a benefits specialist and let them know you are interested in working with an "out-of-network provider." 


The following questions are a good place to start:

  • Does my plan cover some portion of services with licensed, out-of-network providers?

  • What is my deductible and has it been met?

  • How many sessions per year does my mental/behavioral health insurance cover?

Please call me if you are interested in learning more about using your PPO plan to pay for my services; I'd be happy to explain more fully how that works.
