Couple Therapy

Every stage of a relationship comes with its unique joys and challenges. Whether you are dating, in a committed relationship, an open one, considering marriage or married, I work with you and your partner to meet your relational needs.

I support couples whose relationship is being challenged or redefined within the context of separation, divorce or joint parenting. I help you revisit each other’s role and identity as you transition into a new stage.

Some of the relational issues I work with include:

  • Communication
  • Conflict
  • Infidelity
  • Sexuality
  • Consensual Non Monogamus Relationships
  • Parenting
  • Gender roles
  • Multi-ethnicity
  • Separation
  • Divorce
  • Joint parenting

My fee is $150 for a standard psychotherapy session (50-minute long). In my effort to make mental health accessible, I reserve a significant number of Pay What You Can appointments. I accept all major credit cards, and I offer Superbills as an Out-of-Network provider. If you are unfamiliar with Superbills, please read this useful Step-by-Step Guide to Out-of-Network Benefits to learn more about how they work.

Please visit the individual pages for a more detailed description of my services, or give me a call at (858) 255-0895 if you’d like to schedule a free 20-minute video or phone consultation.

Notice to clients and prospective clients:

Under the law, health care providers need to give clients who don’t have insurance or who are not using insurance an estimate of the expected charges for medical services, including psychotherapy services.

You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency healthcare services, including psychotherapy services.

You can ask your health care provider, and any other provider you choose, for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule a service, or at any time during treatment.

If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your Good Faith Estimate, you can dispute the bill. Make sure to save a copy or picture of your Good Faith Estimate.

For questions or more information about your right to a Good Faith Estimate, or how to dispute a bill, see your Estimate, or visit

I look forward to connecting with you!
