Appointments are offered Monday-Thursday at my cozy office in Hayes Valley. I offer an initial free 15 minute telephone consultation in order to answer any questions you may have about treatment and my services. During your first few sessions I will conduct an assessment, during which I will ask you background questions about your family history, relationships, the nature of your current symptoms, and together we will develop goals for treatment. Throughout our sessions, I will elicit your feedback about how the therapy is working for you and we will continue to update your treatment plan and monitor progress towards your goals. One of the essential elements of effective therapy is developing a safe relationship with your therapist. The first few sessions are an opportunity for you to get a sense of how I work and to determine if we are a good match for an ongoing therapeutic relationship. I welcome your thoughts and feedback at every stage of the therapeutic process. For more information and FAQ about psychotherapy click here.
