Fees and Insurance


As I occasionally adjust my rates for specific situations, please call (510) 686-3773 to discuss my current fee.

The ways you choose to spend your time and income reflect your personal values. I consider psychotherapy or counseling as an investment in yourself, your wellbeing, your quality of life. I also understand that individual circumstances (student status, medical disability, single family earner) may impact your ability to invest in you and your family. I encourage you to let me know if you need a reduced fee. If I cannot accommodate your financial situation I will help you to find appropriate referrals.

Insurance and other reimbursement options

I accept Anthem Blue Cross and Aetna Insurance. In addition, I can provide you with a statement of services should you choose to submit claims for reimbursement to another insurance agency. In addition to using your post-tax dollars or health insurance to fund your therapy, you may want to consider using or establishing Health Spending Accounts such as Health Savings Accounts (HSAs), Flexible Spending Accounts (FSAs), or Health Reimbursement Arrangements (HRAs) to pay for counseling or psychotherapy on a pre-tax basis.

Also, please explore my website to begin to answer questions about psychotherapy and to get a better sense of my services, specialties, and philosophy toward our work together. You may find the FAQ/Resources page especially useful when thinking about financing therapy and finding the right therapist for you.
