Fees and Insurance

I would be delighted to talk with you to see whether working together feels like a good fit for you. I offer a free 30-minute phone consultation so that we can explore what might be bringing you to therapy at this time and I can answer any questions that you may have about what this process might look like.


I am committed to making psychotherapy accessible across various financial situations and I offer a sliding scale depending on each person’s needs. My typical fee is $130 for a 50-minute session. I accept cash, checks, and credit cards. Payment is due at each session.

I am a provider for the following insurance companies:


  • Aetna

  • Anthem Blue Cross

  • Beacon Health Options

  • Blue Shield of California

  • Carelon Behavioral Health

  • Cigna

  • Evernorth Behavioral Health

  • Managed Health Network

  • Medicare

  • Optum Health

  • San Francisco Health Plan

  • San Mateo County Behavioral Health & Recovery Services

  • Tricare West

  • United Behavioral Health


If I am not currently included in your plan's network and your insurance covers counseling and pays for out-of-network providers, I can give you a receipt for service to submit for possible reimbursement. Receipts for service can also be submitted to Health Savings Accounts (HSAs) and Flexible Spending Accounts (FSAs).


Questions that you might ask your benefits provider about your coverage include:


  • Do I have mental health insurance benefits?

  • How much of the cost is covered for a therapy session with an out-of-network provider?

  • What is my co-pay for mental health sessions?

  • What is my deductible and how much of this deductible has been met?

  • How many sessions per year does my insurance cover?

  • Do I need pre-authorization and if so, how do I obtain it?


I welcome your call and any questions that you may have about our work together.
