My office is located at 405 Primrose Road in Burlingame, directly opposite the Burlingame Public Library. It is easily accessible from Highway 101.

Phone: (650) 375-1588


Please feel free to contact me with any questions you have or to schedule an appointment. You may use any of the information above, or you may use the following form and I will respond within 48 hours.



Appointments are available for individual therapy, as well as for couples counseling. Sessions usually last 50 minutes for individuals, and 75 minutes for couples. I offer convenient hours available to fit your schedule. You can usually arrange to have a first appointment within a few days.


My standard fee is $220 per 50-minute hour.

I accept cash and checks. While I do not accept third party payments, I will be glad to provide you with an invoice to submit to your insurance company for out-of-network provider reimbursement.


While I have participated in managed care panels in the past, I no longer do so for some very important reasons.

The primary reason is the lack of confidentiality provided by managed care organizations. When working with a client through a managed care plan, I must disclose anything and everything related to my client's case to the managed care organization. Because the relationships I build with my clients and the work we do together are based on the highest standards of trust, I find my work and those relationships compromised by the lack of confidentiality offered by managed care plans.

Additionally, these organizations often limit the number of treatment sessions a client can seek, regardless of the needs of the client. Therefore, it is my choice not to serve on any insurance panels or managed care panels.

However, I will be happy to review the terms of your insurance, which may cover some of the cost of counseling.
