Scheduling Your First Appointment 

(No Walk-Ins)

To schedule an initial appointment, you can contact me via phone (626) 260-1356 or email  Please let me know your availability. If you are planning on using insurance, also indicate what insurance you have.  I would be happy to discuss what you are seeking therapy for or any needs you have prior to scheduling an appointment.  Just let me know a good day and time for me to call you.  I do my best to return calls or emails in 1-2 business days.

The initial appointment is about an hour, and generally follow up appointments are 50 minutes.  There are some forms for you to complete either by coming 15 minutes before our first appointment or by downloading and completing the appropriate forms.  Upon arrival in the lobby, press the button underneath my name to let me know you have arrived. Please make sure the red light turns on.

Go to Office Location for information about getting to my office.


Click Insurance for more information about using insurance.  Make sure to bring your insurance card with you to your first appointment.


My standard rate is $170 for the first appointment, and $150 for 50 minutes ($170 for 60 minutes).  I accept payment in cash, check or debit/credit cards (minimum required to use your card).  I have clients who pay me directly as well as many who use insurance.  If you are using insurance, you will be responsible for any deductibles, co-pays, co-insurance, or fees not covered by the insurance.  Click Insurance for more information about using insurance.  In addition, under certain circumstances I can adjust the rate.  I would be happy to discuss options on the phone (626) 260-1356 or at your first appointment.
