Frequently Asked Questions

Starting therapy and finding a good therapeutic fit can feel like a daunting task, especially when you have a lot of questions or are unsure of what to ask.  Below are some common questions and responses to support you on your journey.

Are you accepting new clients?

Yes, I am accepting new clients ages 25-60 for online therapy in California only.  You must be physically present in California during all therapy sessions.    

Do you accept insurance?

I do not bill insurance and require the full fee paid on the day of the scheduled therapy session. I can provide you with a statement at the end of each month that you can submit to your insurance company to discuss out-of-network reimbursement.

*Please be advised rates may increase on an annual basis due to inflation and rising costs for maintaining clinical and business requirements for a sustainable practice.

There is a 48 hour cancellation policy.  Failure to give 48 hours notice will result in a charge of the full fee of your session.

What is Sex Therapy?

Sex Therapy is a form of talk therapy intended to help resolve sexual health concerns and develop a healthy sexual relationship.  Sex Therapy helps with a variety of physical and emotional problems that interfere with sexual satisfaction, such as erectile issues, low libido, and pain.  Sex Therapy may also be recommended for personal conflict issues related to sexuality and sexual trauma, relationship conflict, navigating consensual non-monogamy and polyamory, recovery from infidelity; and out of control sexual behaviors  associated with sexual activities and pornography.   A Sex Therapist may assign activities, such as physical touch, use of dilators and enhancers, and engaging in open communication to discuss relationship stress and sexual and intimate needs.

Is there sexual activity involved in Sex Therapy? 

No, professional therapy never includes sexual behavior.  Sexual contact of any kind between a therapist and a patient is unethical and illegal in the State of California. Additional information may be found here at The Sate of California Department of Consumer Affairs.  

Do you provide Good Faith Estimates?

You reserve the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate of the total expected costs to offer predicability and transparency in how much you will be charged for regularly scheduled therapy sessions prior to your appointment.  Visit
