My Office

Sessions are conducted in my private therapy office located within the historic Odd Fellows building in the Mid-Market area of San Francisco, adjacent to Civic Center. Public transportation is convenient with Civic Center BART/MUNI station a half block away.  Drop off and pick up is also convenient on 7th (a one-way street). Street parking is limited. Nearby garages include Trinity Place and Impark  at the Holiday Inn - both on 8th Street. Monday sessions take place at my secondary location: 842 California Street in Nob Hill/Chinatown.

Telehealth Sessions: For those who are unable to travel to my therapy office, I offer remote therapy including HIPAA-compliant encrypted video call sessions. 

Session Fee: I am committed to working with individuals at all levels of income. I offer a sliding scale based on need to encourage access to mental health services to those on a budget, such as artists & musicians, activists, healers in training, and graduate students. Some clients also find an every-other week schedule meets both their financial and therapeutic needs; a limited number of these alternating-week slots are available. 

Insurance: I am private pay and not on any insurance panels, but you may still be able to get reimbursed by filing a claim for out-of-network mental health services - I work with Patch, an online insurance assistant, to facilitate reimbursement from your insurance company, subject to your benefits. In addition, my fees can be paid for using a Health Savings Account (HSA) or Flexible Spending Account (FSA). A Single Case Agreement (SCA) with your insurance  may also be possible - talk to you insurance representative or medical provider to see if this is an option. I also take insurance under the California Victim Compensation Program (CalVCP) for individuals for who have been victims of crime. 

Cancellation Policy: 48-hour cancellation policy via text message or phone call  in order to incur no fees. $75 fee for first-time cancellation within 24 hours or less. Repeat cancellations may incur full session fee.
