If you would like to make an appointment, ask a question, or learn more please contact me. I will return your call as soon as possible.
I am located in the spacious and quiet Water St complex, walking distance to downtown with ample parking.
550 Water St Suite E2
Santa Cruz, CA 95060
I accept Anthem Blue Cross and MediCal through Central Coast Alliance. For other insurance I can provide you with a “Superbill receipt” to submit to them for (usually partial) reimbursement.
Couples sessions are generally 75 minutes unless schedule or finances dictate the need for a shorter session.
Reduced rates available upon request based on financial need.***
What to Expect:
In our first session, we will have paperwork to complete and I will disclose policies. I will make sure you understand the informed consent agreement, and you can ask me any questions you may have. We will discuss what brought you in and your goals in our work. At the end of the session we will reschedule for the following week if you are interested in continuing. Weekly sessions are preferable and increase effectiveness.
Payment for each session is due at the beginning of the session.
Please give a minimum of 24-hours notice to cancel an appointment or if you need to reschedule. Missed sessions without 24 hours notice will be charged at the full rate.
I very much look forward to meeting you.
Since I don’t often work with children here are a couple highly trusted colleagues who do:
Rosalie Bruning, LMFT: 831-854-7766
Rosalie specializes in work with anxiety, OCD, depression, ADHD and other executive function issues.
Jessica Merring, LMFT: 831-252-0008
Jessica specializes in work with kids with OCD and anxiety disorders. She also specializes in blended family issues.
I do work with preteen and teens on occasion who are struggling with BFRB’s or OCD since there is a dearth of support for these issues. Feel free to call me and talk to me about this. My requirements on this are that your child is motivated and wants to be in therapy.
