- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Licensed Clinical Psychologists (those who have a Ph.D. or a Psy.D. and are licensed by the Board of Psychology) in the Bay Area generally charge between $160-220 for an individual therapy session and $200+ for a 50-60 minute couples therapy. In the near future, my fees will increase, but I will offer a sliding scale to those with financial need.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?Typically, we will have a free 25 minute consultation wherein you briefly share why you are seeking help at this time, I share my approach, and you ask my any questions that you have about my approach. If it's a good match, we will proceed to schedule a first session. If I am not the best person for your particular situation, I will help you find someone who may be a better fit. I know how challenging it can be to find the right therapist and want to help make the process easier for you. Length of counseling varies for each person and depends on a variety of factors. I have training in providing both short-term (up to about 6-8 sessions) and long-term therapy. I have helped clients in as few as one to two sessions (e.g., when a client wants perspective on a specific situation) and as long as 1 year. If I am contacted for speaking, the free brief consult would involve learning about your organization’s goals for the talk and the audience.
