New Clients

Availability and Scheduling

During the shelter in place order to slow the spread of coronavirus/COVID-19, I am seeing clients using a HIPPA-compliant telehealth video platform or phone.


I see weekly clients Monday and Tuesday with appointment times between 9am and 4:30pm. I see established clients who have stepped down to biweekly care in the afternoon on 2nd and 4th Wednesdays and 1st and 3rd Fridays. I do not have evening or weekend availability.


Self-Pay Clients

My fee is $150 for a 50-minute individual session and $225 for a 75-minute partners session.


For self-pay clients, I offer a complimentary 30-minute in-person consultation for us to get to know each other and to ensure a good fit for ongoing sessions.


Clients in Alaska

During the COVID-19 shelter in place order, I am offering telehealth sessions for clients living in Alaska using an emergency courtesy license. This license is good until November 15th, 2020, or until the emergency order has been lifted by the governor. If you would like to work using a brief therapeutic model on clinical issues within my expertise, please get in touch.


Insurance Clients

My insurance practice is currently full and I am not accepting new insurance clients at this time. Please check back for updates.

My insurance practice is centered on trans and gender nonconforming adults.

I accept Blue Shield and Magellan/Kaiser Permanente under provider contract. I also accept out of network benefits from other plans, including Cigna, United Behavioral Health, and Blue Cross.
