Consultation and Appointments:
I provide a short (15 minute) free phone screen to assess what is bringing you to therapy and determine if I am the right therapist for you. I we decide to work together,  I will spend several sessions learning about you and what it is that brought you to therapy. I might ask you a series of questions at first about your present issues and your past, as well as other  experiences you have had in therapy. Please feel free to ask me questions about how I practice, my basic philosophy, and how I might address certain problems. 
Contacting me:
You may contact me via email, text or phone at 619-672-2157. I will return your message as soon as possible. However, in an emergency situation you should go immediately to your nearest emergency room or call the Psychiatric Emergency Response Team at 911. I will return other messages by the next business day. 

Cancellation Policy:
I understand that at times you may not be able to make a session. I have a 24 hour cancellation policy. If you are not able to come to a session and it is not a true emergency, a $50 cancellation fee will be applied. I will make every attempt to reschedule your session although this is not always possible. If you are going to be late, please inform me by text or a phone call.
