Frequently Asked Questions

What is your fee?

My fee is comparable to others in the area. I do have a limited number of sliding scale spots. Please check with me about availability. I accept cash, check or credit card, including FSA/HSA payments. 

Do you take insurance?

No, I am considered an out of network insurance provider but can provide a superbill (receipt for payment) that you can submit to your insurance provider for reimbursement.

How often do I need to come in?

Sessions are 50 minutes long. Therapy often works best when we can meet weekly, especially in the beginning, to create some real momentum towards lasting change. 

How long will I be in therapy?

Therapy is a a process and everyone goes through it at their own pace. One person's journey is not another's. That said, it is not my goal to keep you in therapy indefinitely but rather to get you to a place where you feel your therapy goals have been met. 

What is your cancellation policy?

You are responsible for payment of the full session fees unless you cancel 24-hours in advance of your appointment time. 

What do I do if I am experiencing a crisis?

I am not a crisis counselor. If you are currently experiencing a mental health crisis, please dial 911 or the contact the San Francisco Crisis line at (415) 781-0500 for immediate assistance.
