Regarding Insurance: Check with your insurance company to see if they accept superbills for psychotherapy services from out-of-network providers. If you have a PPO, you pay upfront and I then submit monthly superbill invoices to you for reimbursement. Many PPOs reimburse as much as 50% of your therapy bill.

Each company is different and reimburses a percentage of your fee or what they deem as standard. Be sure to ask how much they will reimburse for each session and consider your deductible and co-pay for the most accurate estimate.

I do not sit on any insurance panels at this time.

*If you need couple’s counseling or an individual therapist when I am full, I recommend:

Deborah Yarock, MFT: (510) 214-6951 or deborahyarock@gmail.com

Deborah is a trusted colleague with the same fee, which is very generous because she has over 30 years of experience. She supports people who are navigating seemingly unworkable inner obstacles to rediscover their aliveness, agency, and the gifts that can come from even the most difficult experiences. She works within a social justice framework and I refer to her without hesitation. Deborah is a Jewish lesbian originally from the East Coast.

*If you are looking for a couple’s counselor, professional with expertise in men’s mental and emotional health, and/or outpatient addiction services, I recommend: 

Susan King: (415) 926-8907 or susanking61@gmail.com.

For over 30 years, Susan (many call her “Quasi”) has supported individuals, couples, and families with integrative counseling in nonprofit and private practice settings throughout the San Francisco Bay area. She specializes in helping you get to the bottom of what is causing you to get stuck in painful patterns from a place of compassion, clarity, and directness. Quasi is a bi-cultural lesbian, first generation Korean and African American, born and raised in San Francisco, CA.
