My fees are based on a session of 50 minutes in length and are within the usual and customary rates charged in San Francisco. For times when a longer session is desired or indicated, I offer a session and a half (75 minutes) or a double session (100 minutes) at a prorated fee.

As my fees do change, I invite you to call to discuss them and to schedule a free, initial consultation.


Fees are payable at the time of the appointment and I accept checks, cash or credit/debit cards, both directly and via PayPal.


Because I believe that you have a right to make your own mental health care decisions and you have a right to a private and confidential relationship, I do not accept direct pay insurance nor am I on any insurance panels. Many insurance providers will reimburse you if you see an out of network provider, so I provide a monthly receipt of services which you can present to your insurance carrier for reimbursement. Please check directly with your provider to see if this option is available within your insurance plan.
