Frequently Asked Questions
Do you offer free a consultation?
I do. You are welcome to a free 20 minute video or phone consultation with me so we can meet each other and determine if we are a good fit. You’ll be able to ask me any question that you may have, and I can learn about your situation to determine if my skill sets match your needs.

How long does it take to feel better?
This varies from person to person. Some people begin to feel relief after the first session, while for others it may take multiple sessions to start feeling the benefits. Ultimately the speed of progress will depend on a number of factors, and your communication with me about your satisfaction along the way will greatly facilitate that progress.
How can I know if we are good match?
It may take a few sessions to know for sure that we are a good match as client and therapist. An initial, free, 20 minute video or phone consultation can usually provide enough information to determine if we are a good enough match to meet in person for at least a session or two and see if we are a good fit going forward. Most clients will benefit from these initial sessions, even if they don’t continue with me as their therapist, and will know by then whether they want to continue or not. Please feel free to request a free consultation by contacting me online or calling (510) 463-1150.
