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.
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 clinical psychology services - I am happy to provide the "superbill" paperwork. In addition, my fees can be covered under 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 I 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.
See my Philosophy page for more details about my clinical background and approach.
Each session typically consists of a 50-minute hour. Remote sessions (telehealth) and sessions of other lengths may also be available, if appropriate (e.g., sessions combining talk therapy and hypnotherapy).
