Payment & Cancellation
My fee for individual therapy is $245 per 50-minute session. Sliding scale fees are available on a limited basis. Please let me know if you would like to discuss a reduced fee. I offer a free 15-minute phone consultation so you can get a sense of whether I’m the right fit for you or your adolescent.
While I am not on any insurance panels, I can provide documentation for reimbursable services if your insurance plan offers out-of-network benefits.
My cancellation policy requires 48 hours of advance notice. Appointments canceled with less notice will incur the full session fee unless created by emergency.
The law protects the relationship between a patient/client and a psychotherapist, and information can almost never be disclosed without written permission.
In certain circumstances, the law requires a therapist to break confidentiality to protect the safety of the client and others. These include suspected child abuse or dependent adult or elder abuse; potential homicide or serious harm to others; or risk of suicide or other self-harm.
Please ask me for detailed information.
I’m currently offering in-person sessions in my office in Los Gatos as well as video sessions throughout the state of California.
I can be reached by phone at

Good Faith Estimate
You have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much your medical and mental health care will cost.
Under Section 2799B-6 of the Public Health Service Act, health care providers and health care facilities are required to inform individuals who are not enrolled in a plan or coverage or a Federal health care program, or not seeking to file a claim with their plan or coverage both orally and in writing of their ability, upon request or at the time of scheduling health care items and services, to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” of expected charges.
Under the law, health care providers need to give patients who don’t have insurance or who are not using insurance an estimate of the expected charges for medical services, including psychotherapy services.
You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency items or services.
You can ask your health care provider, and any other provider you choose, for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule a service.
If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your Good Faith Estimate, you can dispute the bill.
Make sure to save a copy or picture of your Good Faith Estimate.
