Location: 316 E. Branch St., Arroyo Grande, CA 93420
The practice is located in a brown two-story office building in the Village of Arroyo Grande. The two spacious offices overlook the Arroyo Grande Creek and include parking. I share the space with my colleague, Kari Brown, LMFT.
Therapy sessions are billed at $125 per 50-minutes. If you would like to use insurance for therapy services, I am an out-of-network insurance provider. This means that you will pay me directly and I will give you a superbill to submit to your insurance for reimbursement.
Call me or email me and we will have a brief consult about the reasons you'd like to begin therapy. If you feel comfortable and I believe that I can help you, we will schedule an appointment.
Next, I'll email you my office forms to complete or you can come to the session early and fill the forms out there.
What's the first session like?
We will meet for 50-minutes and I will ask you questions about who you are, what's going on in your life, and gather a brief history. You will get to talk about your feelings, thoughts, and concerns. We will make a game plan and you will leave with ideas and practices to incorporate into your daily life.
How many session will I need before I feel better?
Together, we'll collaborate and decide how many times to meet in order to meet your goals. Typically, I'd recommend meeting weekly for 3-4 weeks then re-evaluating. After about a month we can decide to continue with weekly sessions, meet less frequently, or end treatment. Though it may take time to meet your goals, most people experience relief after the first session. There's healing power in meeting with someone and sharing your story.
