Welcome to my website, and to the next step on your search in finding guidance for yourself or someone you love. I offer counseling for individual adults, adolescents, couples and families. My office locations are in West Los Angeles and Marina Del Rey. For your convenience I offer evening and weekend sessions.
I provide a non-judgmental, honest atmosphere in which my clients can have the freedom to discover what is preventing them from leading a more satisfying life. I hold the belief that with the right guidance, my clients have the power to overcome any obstacle to make positive, lasting changes.

Do you take insurance?
I am designated as an "out-of-network" provider for all insurance plans (except Medicare). This means that you will be asked to pay the session fee, and I will give you a "superbill" to submit for reimbursement directly from your insurance carrier, according to the terms of your particular insurance plan.
Questions to ask you insurance provider before starting therapy:
Will you consider a sliding scale fee?
How long are sessions?
Typical sessions run for 50 minutes. For initial Intake sessions I like to schedule 75 minutes. Couples sessions can often benefit from longer sessions of 75 minutes as well.
How often do you see a client?
I usually see clients once a week. After a time, we may decide together that you are close enough to reaching your therapeutic goals that we may see each other less frequently.
Do you do phone sessions?
I do have phone sessions with my clients if they are unable to make it into the office or if they are travelling.
