Getting Started

How it works

Typically, we will set up an initial phone consultation. Once we decide to meet, we will schedule our first 50-minute therapy session. The first session is spent getting to know each other, determining our goodness of fit, and discussing the best course of therapeutic action. Generally, therapy sessions will be 50 minutes.  Sessions are usually weekly, though at times it may be beneficial to meet two or three times a week depending on your goals and needs in therapy.

Fees & Payment

My standard fee for a 50-minute-session is $200 for individuals and $225 for couples. I do have a limited number of sliding scale spots available. Please call or email me to find out more. 

Parent consultations (via phone or in-person) for clients who are minors are charged at full session rate after 15 minutes.

Payment is due at the time of service. 

I accept cash, check and all major credit cards.

I also accept Venmo and Paypal.


I do not accept insurance; however, depending on your current health insurance provider or employee benefit plan, it is possible for services to be covered in full or in part. Please contact your provider to verify how your plan compensates you for psychotherapy services. As an out-of-network provider, I am able to provide you with a monthly super-bill which can be submitted to your insurance, by you, for reimbursement of what you have already paid.


The law protects the relationship between a client and a psychotherapist. Information is confidential and cannot be disclosed without written permission.

Exceptions under the law include: Suspected child abuse or dependent adult or elder abuse, potential homicide or serious harm, or suicide.  Please ask me for detailed information.

Good Faith estimate Notice

You have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much your medical and mental health care will cost. 

Under the law, health care providers need to give patients who don’t have insurance, or who are not using insurance, an estimate of the expected charges for medical services, including psychotherapy services.  

You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency healthcare services, including psychotherapy services. 

You can ask your health care provider, and any other provider you choose, for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule a service. 

If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your Good Faith Estimate, you can dispute the bill. Make sure to save a copy or picture of your Good Faith Estimate.
