Psychotherapy can help you develop new attitudes, experiences, and ways of being in the world. This is done through the process of exploring and naming the stories we hold about ourselves, then identifying which parts of these stories resonate with one’s true self.

Some people come to therapy in the midst present life changes, and others approach it addressing their histories. Whatever brings you to counseling, we start by determining your goals. I aim to meet my clients where they are through this process.

If you are new to therapy, or nervous about connecting in this way, I commend you and your willingness to try counseling.

Some areas we may address include:

  • improving coping skills
  • managing and improving low mood or depression
  • substance use
  • overthinking, anxiety, and panic
  • healthy relationships and boundaries
  • identity issues
  • complex trauma
  • paranoia
  • anger

Online Video Sessions

Video “telehealth” sessions are available for individual adults across California. Online psychotherapy can be equally effective as in-person treatment, and allows for meeting with me virtually from your home, office, or other location.


My fee for 50-minute sessions is $145. Sliding scale is available: please contact me for more information. I offer an initial, free 15-minute phone consult to see if I may be a good fit for you.

I can provide monthly statements of service for you to submit to your health insurance company, provided you have out-of-network outpatient mental health coverage. Check with your health insurance company for percentage of reimbursement for services.
