Sessions are available in my Berkeley, CA office near North Berkeley BART (15 minute walk) and Downtown Berkeley BART (20 minute walk).

I am taking new patients for individual therapy as of October, 2019 in the weekday afternoons between 12-4pm. If you need another appointment time, email me to be put on the waiting list or I can give you a referral based on your unique needs and availability. I am happy to do either.

I no longer see couples or families.

If you are looking for a family or couple’s therapist, I recommend Deborah Yarock: (510) 214-6951 or

Contact me today for a free 20-minute phone session: 510-995-6499 or

If you know you would like to work with me for individual therapy, call to set up your first appointment. I will return your call within 48 hours with some available appointment times. See you soon!

Important Notes: Appointments must be made within 24 business hours before the session. If it is not within this window, the scheduling software will prompt you to contact me. If it is urgent, the best way to reach me is email: with URGENT Appointment Needed.

If you prefer to speak with me before scheduling, I offer a free, 20-minute phone consultation to see if we are a fit. To schedule your phone consultation, please email me with a couple of good days and times: with Phone Consultation in the Subject line.

Regarding Insurance: Check with your insurance company to see if they accept superbills for psychotherapy services. 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.

You will be required to fill out their form and submit my superbill each month to be reimbursed for your therapy. 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 use my license number: MFT #53456.
