Counseling & Psychotherapy in SLO / the Central Coast / California


Investing in high-quality counseling/therapy is an investment in yourself, your life, your happiness, and in the relationships that mean the most to you. In my view, there is nothing more valuable.  Good therapy can make you more knowledgeable, more skillful, more capable, more connected, more creative, and of course, happier.  

I'm afraid I don't take insurance, but I work as a fee-for-service provider.  I collect the fee from the client at the time of each session, and you may pay by check, cash, or credit card.  You may also make a payment using the PayPal link on this website.  

Depending on the issues we're addressing, meeting every-other week can be highly productive.  Some clients traveling further distances may schedule a 75 or 90-minute session either one or two times per month.  I will be happy to work with you and draw up a plan that is both effective and affordable.  

$150 per 55-minute session
$205 per 75-minute session

Almost all payment cards accepted, run through IvyPay, a payment system designed for therapists.

I collect the fee from the client at the time of each session, and do not bill insurance companies directly.  However, I would be happy to provide you with a billing statement, or "superbill," which you may then provide to your insurance company for possible reimbursement of your out-of-pocket expenses directly to you.  

Reduced Fee 
Reduced fee services are available on a limited basis.  You may consult with the therapist about this option.

Cancellation Policy 
You must cancel a scheduled session 24 hours in advance or you will be required to pay the full cost of the missed session.
