Offices in Castro Valley & Pleasanton, CA

Fees & Scheduling

My fees for individual therapy, couples counseling, and consultation vary.
A typical session costs $150, which includes 45-50 minutes of meeting together, and time for my notes and record-keeping afterward. Thirty or ninety minute sessions can also be scheduled. I offer a reduced fee for students, seniors, and others with low income.
Payment is due at the beginning of each session. In addition to cash and personal checks, I accept credit, debit, and HSA cards via a mobile app called IvyPay, which is similar to Venmo but designed by and for therapists, so it’s HIPAA-compliant. You can also pay via PayPal.
My regular office hours are Monday 2 – 7 pm, Tuesday through Thursday 9 am – 7 pm, and Friday 9 am to 1 pm. These are the hours when I can be reached, and during these hours, I make every effort to return calls, texts, and email messages promptly.
If you would like to schedule an initial consultation to discuss your interest in counseling, consultation, or mindfulness instruction, please either leave a voice message on my office phone, or use the form on the Contact page.
