Payment forms that are accepted

My clients can pay for the cost of their sessions with:

  1. Cash
  2. Check
  3. Credit Card

Out of Pocket Fees Without Insurance

The cost for an individual intake session is $100 for an hour-long appointment. During this appointment I will take about 5-10 minutes to review with you my informed consent, obtain your permission for treatment and answer questions about your privacy.


On-going therapy sessions are usually 45 - 50 minutes and are billed on a sliding scale. 

Sliding Scale prices are discussed privately in person with each client to respect their individual financial circumstances. 

Insurances Accepted

I accept clients who have active coverage with:

  1. AETNA and AETNA EAP
  2. MAGELLAN/KAISER and MAGELLAN EAP
  3. CALIFORNIA VICTIM COMPENSATION PROGRAM
  4. NEW DIRECTIONS EAP (USPS)
  5. SUTTER EAP

These insurances vary on what can be your co-pay or financial responsibility for your first and on-going sessions. Please call me to talk about your own unique coverage plan.  I verify coverage eligibility before our first appointment to avoid any unexpected costs for you.

Groups and Classes

Classes on varied psychology and self-help topics like mindfulness, anxiety management, interpersonal effectivess, or assertiveness are offered throughout the year. These classes are typically one-time presentations lasting 60-90 minutes long and can cost up to $30 per person. 


Client groups are offered throughout the year that focus on varied topics such as social anxiety management, support groups, or coping skills and can cost up to $50 for a 90-minute group session. My groups are limited to no more than 6 members at a time to allow ample time to personally address everyone involved. These groups are usually on-going for 4-6 weeks at a time. 

Payment is Expected the Same Day of Service

Fees are collected at the beginning of each session. When a client cannot afford a session or is unable to continue therapy due to financial constraints, we will discuss treatment options for each particular case.
