I am a psychodynamic-oriented psychotherapist. This means that my approach is based on the idea that the therapy relationship can be a window into a person's longstanding relationship patterns. In the therapeutic relationship, these patterns can be understood and reconfigured, giving way to new ones. To learn more about how psychodynamic psychotherapy works, click here.

I believe that face-to-face, once-a-week psychotherapy is necessary to achieve meaningful growth. I typically meet with my clients at the same agreed-upon time each week, for 45 minutes. Currently, I work primarily with young adults, adults, and couples, in both English and in Spanish.

How do I set up an appointment?
Appointments can only be set over the phone. I usually provide a 10-15 min. phone consult where we will discuss your reasons for seeking out psychotherapy and whether I may be able to help you. At that point, we would set up a meeting time.
What is your fee and what payment types do you accept?
My standard fee is $250 per session for individual psychotherapy and $350 for a family or couple's session. I accept payment in the form of checks, major credit cards, and cash.
Do you accept insurance?
I am an in-network provider for Aetna PPO plans. If you have a different insurance carrier my services are considered out-of-network. For individuals who fall into this category, I am able to provide a "Superbill" at the end of the month which you can then submit to your insurance for reimbursement. Depending on your benefits, you may get 60-80 % back.
How do I find out how much my insurance covers?
Do you provide scale down fees?
I have a limited amount of spots available based on financial need and at off-peak hours.
