Primary Credential: Licensed Marraige and Family Therapist - 98898
Billing and Insurance:
Fees: My standard fee is $190 for a 50-minute therapy session. I do not work directly with insurance panels, but if you have a plan that allows you to select an out-of-network provider, you may be able to get reimbursement from your insurance carrier. In that case, I would provide you with a monthly statement to submit to your insurance company to seek reimbursement. I also set aside a portion of my practice for people in need of a lower fee. In this case, the fee is determined on a sliding scale based on one's financial situation.

My Approach to Helping

I am a licensed psychotherapist with offices in San Francisco and Marin, and I provide individual therapy for adults and teens. I have a holistic and integrative approach to therapy, helping people to explore and resolve deeper issues that might be holding them back or manifesting as depression or anxiety. I specialize in helping clients to navigate major life transitions, overcome feelings of being stuck or overwhelmed, improve their relationships, and live with a stronger sense of vitality and purpose.

I am grateful to be doing work that I love, and I find it immensely rewarding to help people make profound, lasting changes in their lives. I offer a safe and supportive space to help you work through whatever it is that might be causing you distress or keeping you from making the changes you'd like to make.

My website includes more information about my training and background. Please don't hesitate to contact me if you'd like to discuss working together.
