Psychotherapy is a significant personal and financial commitment.

My regular and customary fee for a 50-minute session is $80.00, and my regular and customary fee for an 80-minute group session around a specific issue or topic is $40.00. Overtime or longer sessions are prorated from my basic rate.

Payment is due at the time of the appointment. Cash and personal checks are accepted. As a general policy I do not accept insurance and I request that my clients pay me directly. Professional services are rendered and charged to the client and not the insurance company. If you have insurance coverage and wish to use it, I can provide you with a receipt or statement satisfactory for you to file with your insurance claim at the end of each month.

I offer limited sliding scale options for full-time student status, financial hardships and clients who are members of the Open Path Psychotherapy Collective.

I also accept payment from CalVCP-The California Victim Compensation Program and the Sonoma County Human Services Department-Family, Youth & Children's Services Division. I am also a Beacon Medi-Cal Provider.

If I need to reschedule an appointment I will give you more than 24 hours notice. If I cannot give you more than 24 hours notice, I will provide one meeting at no charge to you. Likewise, I expect that you will give me more than 24 hours notice if you need to reschedule an appointment. If you cannot let me know more than 24 hours in advance you will be charged the agreed upon rate for the time reserved.
