Click the Schedule a Free Consult button and follow the directions. You’ll be able to set up a free 10-minute meeting with me, either on the phone or via videoconference, where you can get all of your questions answered. I’ll work with you to select which service(s) might be the best fit for your situation.
A 50-minute session costs $250. While I don’t take insurance directly, you might be able to get reimbursed for a portion of what you pay. You just need to check in with your provider and see if your plan reimburses for out of network providers. Other therapists in our practice charge less and might have availability. You can read more about them here.
Currently, due to Covid-19, all sessions are held via secure and confidential video-conference. When it is safe to do so, I will have offices in both Pasadena and Sacramento, California.
There are several options. Couples usually meet for two hours at a time. Individuals can meet for one or two hours. Groups last between 90 minutes and two hours. Initial sessions are typically longer, up to three hours for couples and two for individuals.
It varies for everyone. Factors include how often you come and what we are working on. Some clients only need to come for a handful of sessions, while others continue to find a benefit for a number of years.
It depends on what you want to work on. If you want help with resolving past trauma, work related issues and such, individual therapy might be best. That being said, when in doubt I always recommend couples therapy. Couples therapy is a very powerful way of doing our own work. Most of our problems have something to do with relationships, and working through and healing that material in the relationship is very powerful. Couples also tend to come to therapy for shorter durations, as the work tends to be more intense and potent.
Yes, and please do! Many of my clients, whether they are coming for individual therapy or couples therapy, also come for group therapy. Combing group therapy with other modalities is one of the most powerful ways you can work. I highly recommend doing just that.
