Counseling and psychotherapy from a strengthening and restorative perspective

I provide comprehensive clinical assessments and treatment for a wide range of concerns which include but are not limited to the following:

  • Depression
  • Mood swings
  • Anxiety, stress or fears
  • Trauma and PTSD
  • Marriage Concerns
  • Relationship Issues
  • Divorce
  • Parenting
  • Life Coaching
  • Loss or Grief
  • Self-Concept (e.g., self-esteem, confidence, satisfaction)
  • Eating Disorders
  • Life transitions (e.g., relocation, birth/adoption of a child)
  • Assertiveness
  • Work and School Issues

Although I make reasonable efforts to be available for phone calls and last minute appointments during times of emergency, I cannot be available at all times. I attempt to return phone calls in a timely manner for brief conferences between sessions as needed, and will always try to return calls within 48 hours.

If an emergency situation for which a client or his/her guardian feels immediate attention is necessary, the client or guardian is to contact the emergency services in the community (925-4186, OR 911), or go to the Emergency Room. I will follow-up any emergency services with standard counseling and support to the client and/or the client's family.

Appointments are available Monday through Thursday,
11:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., or by special arrangement.


My office fee is $130 for the first 45 minutes, and $195 for sessions lasting 55 minutes or longer. Sessions are typically scheduled for 60 minutes. I offer a 25% discount when payment is made in full at the time of service.

Services provided in support of legal proceedings are billed at the full hourly rate, and may require pre-payment. A minimum fee of $30 will be charged for phone consultation with legal counsel.


I am happy to bill insurance companies for which I am a network provider. I can provide documentation needed for you to submit paperwork to your insurance company if I am outside their provider network. Any insurance claims unpaid after 90 days becomes the responsibility of the client.

Sliding Fee

I do not offer a sliding fee scale at this time.


I accept cash and personal checks, as well as Visa, MasterCard and Discover.
