Individual Counseling – Somatic Stick Work

$300 for 50 minutes

After Hours Sessions

Sometimes clients will request sessions outside of my regular counseling  hours (after hours or on a weekend). I am occasionally able to accommodate a limited number of these requests. Please note that I add a $100 fee to weekend or after hours meetings.

Late Fees

Full payment is expected at the time of service unless otherwise agreed upon. A grace period will be allowed with no late fee if payment is received by 6:00 pm the next business day. After 6pm on the next business day, there will be a $20 charge for late payments made within the same week, and a $30 charge the next business week. A balance of more than two sessions is not permissible. If you are unable to pay this balance, we will discuss whether it makes sense to pause your sessions or develop another strategy.

Fee Reduction

My slots for reduced fee clients are currently full. I do not ever want someone who is having a positive therapy experience with me to discontinue our work together at a time of need, if life circumstances change their financial reality for them.

If my fee is a concern, please discuss it with me. If I am unable to accommodate your financial situation, I will provide you with referrals.

Lateness and Cancellations

Missed and cancelled sessions can severely compromise your process and cause problems for me. The work of attachment repair is sometimes challenging and when we hit a difficult place together, it can feel easier to avoid coming into treatment. I would prefer we speak about this intentionally before considering cancellation. 

I hold your scheduled appointment time specifically for you and you alone. There is a limited number of clients so that I can give you the focus and attention you deserve. 

It is extremely difficult for me to fill your last minute cancelled session on a short notice. 

Therefore, I charge for appointments cancelled with less than 48 hours notice unless we can find another time that week that works for us both. If we are able to find another time that works for us, before the weekend, I allow you to reschedule at no extra fee.

Fee Increases

I do raise my fees annually, in January, to make up for the increases in my own expenses. I notify people in writing several months before the fee increase, and if it poses a significant burden to you, we can discuss what we will do about that. It is never my intention to make counseling inaccessible to my current clients and we can work together if my increases are causing you stress (or if you work in an industry in which you do not get a raise). My goal is to be able to continue to live and work in the Bay Area and to continue to be able to cover my own expenses without having to expand my caseload to a point where I am unable to provide quality care.


I do not currently take insurance. 

I am not a therapist and this is not traditional therapy work.
