I am a licensed professional counselor in California (LPC #37). I identify as a gay Jewish man of European descent. I use he/him or they/them pronouns. I specialize in meaning struggles, life and family transitions, depression/anxiety, parent-young adult conflict, LGBTQ issues, and issues related to religion and spirituality. I am trained in racial justice and anti-oppression modalities. I work with clients from all ethnic and racial backgrounds.
Struggle and suffering in your life, your relationship, or family can provide surprising opportunities to cultivate resilience, fulfilling connection, and lasting meaning. Therapy with me is a collaborative process. I work with individuals, couples, and families to develop a framework that will foster nourishing joy and holistic health. I welcome clients who experience social/racial oppression. If you struggle with communication, satisfaction, depression, meaning, or difficulty during life transitions, you will find resonance with my mindfulness-based somatic and narrative approach.
We will connect online for a 30-minute session so you can ask me any questions and get a sense of how I work.

Currently, AETNA reimburses me about $115 per billed individual session (90837) and about $90 per billed couples session (90847), less your own copay/coinsurance amount. I will send you a MONTHLY Paypal request for the total amount you are responsible for as per your agreement with AETNA (either your copy or coinsurance). Before your benefits kick in, you must reach your deductible. While I do my best to track when you meet the deductible, ultimately you are responsible for tracking your own benefits. Thus, until you meet your deductible you will be charged the AETNA rate per session.
My current rate for clients who do not use insurance is $115 per session. You will be sent a Paypal request at the end of each month to submit your payment.
As per my office policies, if you miss a session or notify me of a cancellation within 24 hours you will be charged the full amount for your session. AETNA clients will be charged the AETNA full rate per session (not just their copay/coinsurance) and clients paying out-of-pocket will be charged their regular full session fee.
For clients not using insurance, by federal law, you can request a Good Fath Estimate verbally and/or in writing at any point during our work together. Please contact me and I will provide you with the needed information.
