Individuals, Couples and Families: $250.00

It is my choice to set my fee in the middle range for Licensed Psychotherapists practicing in Palo Alto. This is my commitment to provide affordable therapy for my clients.

See Therapist Degrees & Fees for an approximate range of fees by therapist disciplines in Palo Alto.


Along with many other qualified and experienced mental health professionals, I have elected not to join any health insurance panels. Some of the reasons include wanting to maintain your right to privacy and to remain as free as possible from outside restrictions that may limit or interfere with our work.

If your health insurance carrier allows you to choose an out-of-network provider (generally a PPO or POS plan), I can provide you with a statement of services and payments so that you can seek reimbursement. You may want to check with your carrier to verify coverage for out-of-network providers and for rates of reimbursement.

If you are thinking about using your health insurance to pay for therapy, you might want to read About Health Insurance to help you make an informed decision.

Phone Consultation

I offer a ½ hour phone consultation – with no cost to you – to help  you assess your situation and determine whether it would make sense for us to meet for a consultation.

Please contact me if you would like an initial phone consultation or appointment.
