Fees and Payment Options


Please note:  I can not bill insurance for marital/couple counseling or other non-diagnosable issues, but can consider private pay fee reduction based on your income.


I currently accept the following health plans/insurance:

Medi-cal through Contra Costa Health Plan
(Contra Costa County only)

Beacon Health Options

Blue Shield of California
(and ILWU through Blue Shield)


Kaiser clients can request to see a therapist outside the Kaiser system through Beacon Health Options.

I also accept:

alifornia Victim Compensation Program / VOC

Any PPO as an out-of-network provider 




Clients with PPO Insurance may see any provider they choose, although seeing a non-preferred provider may cost somewhat more than a provider that is contracted with your insurance. 

Clients with PPO insurance must pay full fee (cash or check) at the start of each session.  I can provide a thorough billing statement ( a "super-bill") for you to use for reimbursement of your fees from your insurance company.

Private Pay:
Fees range from $125 for individual adult, child or parent/caregiver sessions to $150 for couple counseling or other family sessions. 
There is a one-time fee of $250 for a Diagnostic Evaluation, which includes provision of a written Treatment Plan.

Sliding scale:
For those without insurance, or who prefer not to use their insurance, a sliding scale is available depending on your income.  The sliding scale ranges from $70 to $125 per 45 minute adult, child or parent session.    The fee for the initial Diagnostic Evaluation, which includes provision of a written Treatment Plan, is twice the cost of the individual sessions.
I can provide annual receipts for tax purposes to clients using the sliding scale.


Clinical consultation:
I provide clinical consultation for therapists working with children.  The fee is $125 per hour.  A discount is available for therapists who provide services mostly to Medi-cal or low-paying clients.


Other services:
Letters to schools, doctors, courts, etc. can be provided to clients at the hourly rate of $125.
