I don't have the answers to all of life's questions.

However, here are some of the most frequently asked questions that I receive.

I am trained in Motivational Interviewing, Trauma-Focused CBT, Prepare Enrich and Phases 1, 2 and 3 of BrainSpotting 

How do I book an appointment?

If you are a first time client, please call and leave me a detailed message on my confidential voicemail that includes your name, telephone number, and specific times that I can reach you.

If you are an existing client at The Place Within, you can call, text, email, or schedule an appointment on the "Appointments" tab.

What are your rates?

At The Place Within, a non-profit counseling center, we offer affordable, high-quality counseling services on a sliding scale that is based on your income. Rates range from $35-$90 per 50-minute session.

The Place Within accepts cash, check, and debit or credit cards.

What age groups do you work with?

I work with: 

  • Teens
  • Adults 
  • Couples
  • Aging populations

Do you take insurance?

The Place Within does not accept insurance.

We do accept clients who have been approved by the California Victim Compensation Board (CalVCB). 

Is there paperwork I need to fill out?

Yes, below is a convenient link that will provide you with the new client forms that must be filled out before our first session.

Cancellation/Missed Appointment Policy

I require 24 hours notice for all cancellations. Failure to cancel within that time frame results in a charge of your full session fee.

What confidentiality standards are you required to meet?

Unless required by law to break confidentiality, everything you tell me will be confidential. 

As a mandated reporter, I am required to break confidentiality in cases of child abuse, elder abuse, harm to self or others, or a court subpoena.

Are you available outside of business hours?

I typically return calls within 48 hours of receiving your message. I usually see clients on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays

If you are having a counseling emergency, call 911 or the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 


Will I get better, and how long will it take?

Of course you can get better. I would have the worst job in the world if people didn't. That being said, therapy is a very individual process. We must first determine if we are a good match--the therapeutic relationship is often the most important factor driving success. Sometimes a shift can be made simply by being in the presence of someone who is compassionate and believes you can heal.
