INQUIRY & CONTACT

PSYCHOTHERAPY PRACTICE

I hold an active, unobstructed license as a Marriage and Family Therapist in the State of California. Therefore, I am qualified to therapeutically treat clients who reside in this state. Currently, all my sessions are conducted remotely via the telehealth site on Psychology Today’s Sessions Platform.

As a consultant or Coach, I am able to work with people from all over the world. Please see my Consultancy Page for more information. These clients all payout of pocket—insurance does not cover these kinds of services.

My standard fee is $235 per 50-minute session.

I do not directly accept insurance, but I am an “Out-Of-Network Provider”. Check on my Fees Page to understand how this works! Please check with your insurance carrier to see if you have this benefit.

    MEETING FOR SESSIONS

    (Note to Designer: ADD THE WELCOME DOCUMENT link HERE AND CALL IT “WELCOME TO MY PRACTICE” not Welcome 2022. People need to print it out. Then continue with the text below.)

    Many people want to know if there is a qualitative difference between in-person sessions versus remote visiting ones. I have found that I miss serving hot tea to my clients and giving hugs to those who enjoy them, at the end of sessions. On the other hand, remote sessions seem to be less stressful for my clients. People are rarely late to sessions held this way, and I have noticed a higher degree of comfort expressed by the participants, when they can just chat in sweats from the comfort of their own homes, offices, and even cars! Because there is less “settling in” time, I think we get more done in every session. Then, considering the health safety factors, we are all safer keeping our physical distance. All things considered, the advantages have so far outweighed the gains of in-person sessions, and so (for now) I don’t have plans to return to a physical office.

    CONSULTANCY AND COACHING

    I can work with clients from all over the world, (and have), as a Coach or Consultant. This is another advantage of remote sessions. As long as we can synchronize our clocks modern technology has enabled our ability to connect pretty seamlessly most days.
