Getting Started

Welcome to my practice! If you’re interested in setting up an initial appointment for individual or couples therapy, or if you would like more information, please send an email, or leave me a message at 415-742-1396.


Sessions are generally 50 minutes long, but I also offer longer sessions if we decide it would be helpful. During the first appointment, you will have a chance to share with me your reasons for seeking therapy and what you hope to get out of the process. I will ask you some background questions about the challenges you’re facing. Your questions will be welcome. If we decide to work together, we will schedule a regular time to meet.

I work on both a long-term a short-term basis. Whether you are suffering from long-term struggles that require a longer therapy, or want to work on an issue that’s more situational and brief, I will tailor our work to you and your particular needs.


My fees are set based on the current standard rates for psychotherapy in our geographical area. I offer a limited number of spaces at a reduced fee, based on financial need.


My office is on 24th Street, in between the Mission & Noe Valley neighborhoods of San Francisco. Free two-hour street parking is available on nearby streets. The office is a 5 minute walk from the 24th Street BART Station and can also be reached by Muni via the J Church, the Mission or Valencia Street bus lines.


My practice is self-pay as I am not on any health insurance panels. If your insurance provider allows you to choose an out-of-network provider, I will be glad to provide you with a statement so you may seek reimbursement. Please check with your provider about coverage, your deductible, and rates of reimbursement.

Entering therapy is an important step, as is choosing a therapist who feels like a good fit. I welcome you to call if you have questions about my approach or practice or would like to schedule an appointment.
