Frequently Asked Questions

Where are you located?

I offer in-person sessions in Berkeley, CA.  My therapy office is about half a mile from the Downtown Berkeley Bart station.

I offer a free 20-minute phone consultation to better determine whether you think we would be a good fit.

Do you accept insurance?

I do not currently accept insurance. I can provide you with an invoice that you may submit to your insurance provider to request reimbursement.

What is expected of parents with children in therapy?

Parents can expect to collaborate with me in monthly parent coaching sessions to work on building skills to support your child's ongoing progress. Parent sessions may also focus on supporting you in your parenting role and all the challenges and joys that come with it.

I also encourage parents to trust in the power of play and its essential role in helping children to express emotions, process life's events, and resolve issues. 

How long will I or my child need to be in therapy?

Therapy can look different for everyone, including the length of time in it. Some will find that a few months is sufficient to set them on a path that feels better. Others may need a year or longer to make the changes they want. Some may even discover they benefit from incorporating therapy as an ongoing part of their self-care or in supporting their child's continued development.

Can I reschedule or cancel my session?

I have a 24-hour cancellation policy. If you need to cancel or reschedule your session, please notify me at least 24 hours in advance. If you are not able to give me at least 24 hours' notice, you will be responsible for the full session fee.
