Initial Phone Consultation– 15 minutes, free
During this phone call, we will briefly discuss what is bringing you to therapy and how I can best be of help. If we decide that I might be a good fit for your needs, we will go ahead and schedule two initial assessment sessions. If we agree that your needs might be better served by someone else, I will happily refer you to one of my excellent colleagues in the Bay Area.
Initial Assessment – two 50 minutes sessions, $200-300
At our first two appointments, we will go over your current symptoms in detail, your past mentel health, psychiatric and medical history, your family’s mentel health history, and your social supports and situation. At the end of the initial assessment, I will provide you with my initial diagnostic impression(-s) and an initial treatment plan, with the understanding that these might evolve over time.
On-going Therapy – 50 minutes, $100-150 per session
Once we mutually decide that we are a good fit, we will decide on a frequency to meet regularly. To fully benefit from psychotherapy, I see most of my clients weekly for a period of time before discussing possibly spacing out to biweekly and eventually monthly in the long term.
8-Week Psychoeducation Group, $500 for eight 90-minute sessions.
See more detail on the group page.
I am only accepting payment by credit card at this time. I require that a credit card be on file before our first appointment.
At this time, I am not currently on any insurance panels as I want to practice psychotherapy unencumbered by insurance companies’ administrative burdens. I can provide a “superbill” at the end of each session with all the necessary information for you to seek partial reimbursement by insurance.
Due to the limited hours of my practice, I require that all cancellations and requests to reschedule be made 24 business hours in advance. For example, if your appointment is scheduled for Sunday at 5pm, I require notice of cancellation by Friday at 5pm of the week prior.
