Billing and Insurance
I don't currently accept insurance, but I can provide documentation if clients wish to submit to an insurance company for "out of network" benefit coverage
Fees: Free 20 minute phone consultation.
Call to discuss my current fee. My fee is commensurate with clinicians in the Bay Area with my level of training and expertise. I reserve some hours in my practice for people in need of a reduced fee.

Do you know that a fuller, richer life is possible but can't access it? Are you wanting more satisfying relationships but keep getting stuck in painful patterns? A therapy relationship is a unique opportunity to safely explore parts of your life and yourself in the presence of another. With compassion, authenticity, and a gentle curiosity, I can help you discover and attend to the limiting beliefs and old wounds that have been keeping you from the life you want. We will explore the areas that have been causing you trouble, with particular attention to your here-and-now experience. I will bring both directness, a sense of humor, and over 15 years experience to our work together.

My Therapy Focus
When working with couples, I use Emotionally Focused Therapy- an approach based on the understanding that we are wired for connection, and that when couples feel a safe and strong connection, they are able to handle the inevitable challenges of life together.
In individual work, I listen deeply for ways that past experiences and strategies to manage them show up in the present. This means we may use our relationship as a laboratory of sorts, to discover old patterns and try on new ways of relating to yourself and to others.
