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: My standard fee of $120 is in the same range as other therapists with similar experience in the San Jose area. I reserve a set of reduced-rate time slots for clients with financial hardships. I accept cash, check, or credit/debit card. Clients who pay with cash receive a $5 discount. I'd be happy to answer any questions you may have about the fee when we meet for our free initial consultation.

Therapy can be a powerful tool for collaboratively navigating through life's challenges, finding clarity of thought, and alleviating distress. Amazing opportunities for emotional healing and personal growth can emerge when a therapist is your affirming, validating, and candid advocate. Therapy can help with transitioning from pain, isolation, fear, confusion, and/or anger to relief, connection, trust, determination, and release. Therapy is sometimes focused on acknowledging the impact of past events, identifying automatic reactions that are problematic, considering alternative (more productive) responses, and intentionally living in new ways that are more likely to bring healing, purpose, meaning, success, and fulfillment. At other times, therapy may simply assist with finding and using available resources to effectively resolve problems. I hope that you'll contact me and share what's prompting you to seek therapy. I'd be happy to describe my therapeutic approach in further detail and answer any questions that you may have.
