Make a Change

Welcome to my practice. To inquire about meeting for an initial interview, Please e-mail me ( or call me at 619.339.8228 and leave me good times and phone numbers where I can call you and speak with you voice to voice.

An initial session is a first meeting where we meet each other to discuss the possibility of working together. It is a 45 minute meeting and I charge the same fee for that as I do for an individual therapy session which is $190.00. Please bring all your questions and concerns as well as your goals and intentions to that meeting. Also, please download, read and fill out two forms to bring in with you to the initial interview: New Client Information and Consent for Treatment from the “Forms” tab at the top of the page.

If we agree to work together after our first meeting, we will begin an assessment period in order to begin to put the pieces of the puzzle together and work towards and mutual understanding and decide on a path forward into change. I recommend filling out the Life History Questionnaire for you to reflect upon, and to share with me, the events, relationships and patterns that have influenced you in your life. It is important for us to periodically check in and make sure we are working in a productive and positive way that meets your goals and desires. Good communication, taking action steps and deep honesty on your part about both the positive and negative experiences of working together will be very important parts of this process.
