It’s important to feel comfortable in your therapist’s presence, and to feel safe doing the work. You should feel like you can trust them to be accepting and nonjudgmental about everything you share and every question you ask. If the match between you and your therapist doesn’t feel right to you, you can always try a different therapist.
If you have private insurance, I can give you a bill with the necessary codes to submit to your insurance company. Each person’s policy is different. Your insurance company may reimburse you for a portion of your psychotherapy fee from out of network providers.
If you have Medicare, they will pay me directly 80% of my fee for psychotherapy. If you have a secondary private insurance, they will pay me directly for the other 20%, which is the copay amount.
$175 per session.
Under a limited set of circumstances I would consider sliding my fee, with a maximum reduction of 15%. I’m happy to discuss your financial circumstances in detail before making that decision.
We should meet no less than once a week in order to truly do the work, and it’s an option to meet more often.
I’m near the Oakland Kaiser building on Howe Street in Oakland.
There’s paid parking at the Kaiser parking structure across the street, and 2-hour street parking in the immediate neighborhood.
Yes. The nearest BART station is MacArthur, and there’s a direct shuttle to the Oakland Kaiser building on Howe Street. You can also walk up 40th and turn right when you reach Howe.
