Fees: I would prefer to initially discuss your circumstances and my approach to psychotherapy to determine if working together would be helpful to you. Towards that end, I am happy to schedule a 30-45-minute phone consultation with you at no cost. If you are not a good match, I will gladly provide referrals to individuals or agencies that may serve you more effectively.
In my practice payment is due at the time services are provided. If you have a PPO or POS plan, I will be happy to provide a statement that will let you seek reimbursement, and assist you with that process.
My fees are in line with community standards and include normal communications by phone or email, patient related research and brief consultation with your other providers, as needed.
I do see people on a sliding scale depending on peoples’ financial circumstances. You may contact me to discuss your situation. If your financial situation is a barrier to working with me, I will do my best to assist you in finding an appropriate referral.

My Approach to Helping

I have often thought that psychotherapy can be too abstract and mysterious. Often the belief is that the therapist has the exclusive view into the client’s unconscious drives or motives. This view tends to over-pathologies the individual seeking help, with the client having the problem and the therapist holding the solution. I don’t really think that it works that way. I have often found that people know what changes they need/want to make in their lives, have good reasons (motivations) for making these changes, and have clear ideas of how they can get there.

Using an approach known as motivational interviewing I join with the client to form a partnership by which the individual is able to identify the focus of change, identify their personal reasons for changing, and develop a plan to get there. This approach empowers the individual, identifies the strengths and resources they already possess, and respects the autonomy and wisdom within each person to make choices that are in their best interests.

Whether you are trying to let go of a habit that no longer works for you, pursue an opportunity that you have been putting off due to ambivalence, or adding activities or skills to your daily routine that can improve anxiety or depression, I can guide you toward the change you want in your life. I think you will find me easy to talk to as I take a respectful and non-judgmental approach to my work.

More Info About My Practice

A little about myself. I am a licensed clinical social worker who has been providing counseling and case management for over 30 years. The focus of my practice is in providing individual therapy to those with substance use disorders, anxiety, and depression and those considering making significant changes in their lives. I am also interested in working with parents or siblings of those with developmental disabilities, who are looking for someone who understands their experience.
The practice located in the historic Flood Building in downtown San Francisco is limited to individual adults of all genders. I am currently not accepting insurance reimbursement (although will provide clients with a Superbill if they wish to seek reimbursement directly from their insurance carrier). If I am not the right person to help you with your situation I would be happy to offer referrals to therapists who specialize in working with couples, children, or to those whose concerns may be better served to another resource.
Due to COVID restrictions, I am currently seeing clients virtually and use both the doxy.me and zoom platforms.
