"a solid presence. 
a fresh, creative, down-to-earth, and direct point of view. 
a touch of humor to assist you in overcoming obstacles."


When we begin, we will discuss what brings you to seek therapy, scheduling, fees, and any questions you may have about my experience and practice. If you feel I would be helpful to you, we will schedule an initial session. The initial session is an opportunity for you to meet me and share with me more about yourself. This also gives you a sense of how I work and how you will feel talking with me. If, for whatever reason, it doesn't feel like the right fit for you, I will provide you with a referral so you can find the right therapist for you and your needs.

Sessions are generally 50 minutes long. Typically we will meet once per week, although in certain instances, we may agree for you to come more or less often.   

I accept cash or check at the beginning of our sessions.  I do not accept any insurance, however I can provide you documentation of our work for you to submit to you insurance company for possible reimbursement.

I offer a flexible schedule, morning and evening hours, and house visits for new mothers when possible.   

My office is conveniently located just off College Avenue in the Rockridge neighborhood of Oakland, easily accessible to parking, BART and many buses routes.

If this sounds like what you are seeking, please contact me.
