Getting Started

If you are interested in seeking my services, feel free to leave me a message on my confidential voice mail (650) 964-6993 and I will call you back to discuss your concerns (15-20 minutes). 

If we decide to meet, there will be an initial intake and evaluation period which will last approximately two sessions (3-4 hours).  During the intake and evaluation period, I will serve as a consultant to you and or your family while I familiarize myself with your needs and goals.  During this stage, I will be assessing whether my skills and experience match your need. 

It is important that you ask yourself the question how well does she understand me and how confident do I/We feel that she can help me/us.  If at the end of the intake and evaluation process we agree to work together, we will collaborate to develop a treatment plan to suit your needs. 

In the case of children and teens, I will meet with both parents for approximately 2 hours followed by two 50 minute meetings with the child or teen.  The intake process will culminate in a meeting with both parents and child or teen (based on the age and maturity of the child) to discuss treatment recommendations.
