Are you accepting new clients right now? 

Please call me at (408) 800-2836, or email me at to answer that question as it changes on a weekly and sometimes daily basis. 

How do I know if I need therapy?

Everyone suffers from some sadness, worry, and stress in their lives.  However, sometimes those feelings become so overwhelming that they impact your life and reduce your ability to function at school, work or in your relationships.  If your feelings or symptoms are getting in the way of your ability to function, I recommend you seek help, either in the form of counseling or medical help. 

Do you accept Health Insurance?

I do not have a contract with any health insurance providers, but  I am happy to bill any PPO Health Insurance plan as an "out-of-network provider."  Often, health insurance will cover a portion of my fee after a deductible is met.  To determine your coverage, call the member services phone number on your health insurance card.  

How often do people need to go to therapy?

I usually recommend sessions once per week.  This is the best frequency to help you stay connected to the issues we are talking about and keep the dialogue and process going.  Sometimes, if someone is suffering from very severe symptoms, I will recommend therapy twice per week.  Alternatively, if symptoms are mild, less frequent sessions are also okay. 

Can you work with my schedule? 

I am in the office on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays.  My earliest appointment is usually from 10am-11am, and my latest is usually from 6pm-7pm.  If that works for you, give me a call and we can try to set something up! 

How do I set up an appointment?

Feel free to call me with any questions or to set up an appointment.  My phone number is (408) 800-2836.  You can also email me at (see contact tab).

Do you accept Victim Compensation from the state of California?

Yes!  I sure do. 

What do I need to do to get ready for my appointment?

Please read the information under the "Forms" tab before you come.  If you don't get a chance, I will provide you with a hard copy so you can read it before your session.  You don't need to print anything out or fill anything out in advance. 

What does it cost to go to therapy?

My fee for therapy is $200 per 50 minute session.   I accept check, cash, credit card and debit card.

What is your cancellation policy?

I require sessions to be canceled 24 hours in advance to prevent you from being charged for a missed session.
