Counseling can take different forms. You can meet with me individually, as a couple, as a family, or in a therapy group. For more information about each of these formats please click on the following links:
In most cases, I meet with clients weekly. Though depending on our goals, meetings can be more or less frequent. I offer an initial free 20 minute consultation to discuss what you can expect from counseling before scheduling your first session.
Sessions can be for varying lengths of time, although for individual sessions, I recommend 50 minutes. For family sessions I recommend 90 minutes if possible. My groups meet for 90 minutes.
My rate is $130 for 50 minutes, and I accept some types of insurance, as well as victims of crime reimbursement. Payments can be made by check or credit card. I have a few daytime hours that I reserve for clients that have limited ability to pay for therapy. If those hours are full I offer a waitlist. For clients needing services right away at a reduced fee I recommend the Bay Area Psychotherapy Training Institute which provides a substantial sliding scale. Learn more at www.bapti.org
