What to expect when calling for therapy in San Jose, CA.
When you call you will likely get my voicemail. I usually return calls usually within a few hours or at the end of the day. If I am out of town, my voicemail will specify when I can get back to you.
Some people prefer sending an email or text which is fine. I use them for administration issues only due to them being not entirely secure. If you send me an email or text, please give me a safe number to contact you.
I work on Monday and Wednesday late afternoon/evenings and Tuesday, Thursday mornings. Please ask about my current openings.
After your free phone consultation, if you feel comfortable we'll schedule an appointment. If not, I'll give you excellent referrals so you get the right person.
I am an out of network provider which means I am not on any insurance panels. Instead, I provide you a superbill for direct reimbursement if applicable.
Once we set up an appointment, download forms applicable to you and bring them to your first appointment. Please ask if you need help. Read them and feel free to ask any questions you may have about my policies.

Expectations of Therapy
For psychotherapy to be effective, I recommend weekly sessions until goals are met. If you cannot afford my fee, I’m happy to give you some referrals.
I have an assessment process for couples that include four sessions:
Two couples sessions; (first and last)
Then both of you take an online assessment at home ($29)

We meet together and go over the results of the assessments
