Frequently Asked Questions

Do you offer free a consultation?

I do. You are welcome to a free 15-20 minute phone consultation with me to determine if we are a good fit. You’ll be able to ask me any questions that you may have, and I can learn about your situation to determine if my skill sets match your needs.

How can I request a new appointment?

You can request a new appointment here. Or, feel free to call me at 510-455-2698.

How much does therapy cost?

Please contact me directly to discuss my fee. I offer a sliding scale for those in need. We can discuss the fee for therapy on a free phone consultation.

What type of insurance do you accept?

I do not accept insurance at this time, but I’m happy to provide you with a statement for you to submit for reimbursement.

Services may be covered in full or in part by your health insurance or employee benefit plan. Please check your coverage carefully by asking the following questions:

Do I have coverage for individual psychotherapy with an out of network provider?
What is the coverage or reimbursement amount per session?
What is my deductible and has it been met?

What can I expect to get out of therapy?

Depending on the reasons you are seeking out therapy, what you can expect to get out of therapy differs. Generally, my clients are seeking clarity around a certain issue, relief from stress and anxiety, or need support and counsel about a current life situation. Whatever is going on for you, therapy can make it easier by providing you with a safe space to receive emotional support, learn tools to cope with difficulties, and build self-confidence.

What types of therapy do you offer?

I offer therapy for individuals, couples, and adults. Generally I offer therapy for stress, anxiety, emotional balance, self-esteem, relationship issues and communication skills. Please read more about me and my services on the about me page.

How long does it take to feel better?

This varies from person to person. Some people feel a sense of relief after the first session, while for others it may take multiple sessions to start feeling a shift.

How can I know if we are good match?

This is a great question… it’s important to feel comfortable and safe with your therapist. The best way to know if we are a match is by doing a free consultation so we can speak and get a feel for each other. Usually we can determine if we’d be a good match after one conversation. Please feel free to request a free consultation by contacting me online or calling 510-455-2698.
