Frequently Asked Questions

Q. Where is your office located?

You can find me at 2325 Third Street in the Dogpatch neighborhood of San Francisco, close to the Bayview, Mission Bay and Potrero Hill. The cross street is 20th St, walking distance from the Caltrain Station. The 22, 48 and T lines stop across the street.

Q. Who comes to therapy?

My therapy practice is open to people of diverse backgrounds and concerns. Historically, the field of psychology hasn't done a good job of welcoming people from underserved communities. Sometimes the field has been deeply pathologizing of identities and experiences that are diverse expressions of human life. As a care provider, I aim to provide a welcoming, nonjudgmental space where you can express yourself and your concerns as freely as possible.

Q. What do you charge?

I have a regular fee and a sliding scale based on need. The California Victim Compensation program partially subsidizes fees for their clients. I would be glad to share specifics with you as a prospective client by email or phone

Q. How do I know whether to come in by myself or with my partner or family?

Sometimes it's hard to know. I welcome you to reach out and we can discuss the options for your particular situation. 

Q. Do you take insurance?

I can accept payment from Health Savings Accounts and also work with the California Victim Compensation Board. I'm not a member of other insurance panels. As an out-of-network provider, I can provide monthly invoices to submit to your insurer for reimbursement. Please contact me with questions and I am glad to go over the process with you, including how information may become part of your health record.


Please feel free to contact me with any additional questions or to schedule an appointment.
