Below is General Payment Information, please phone or email for clarification if needed.


Payment for services is generally due at the time services are rendered, unless other arrangements have been made. Payment may be made by cash or  check. Insurance Plans I participate in most HMO or PPO provider panels.

I can prepare and submit claims for you to any insurance plan that permits you to chose your provider.  I accept payment through the Victim Witness Program and  Workers Compensation.  Please note:  I am not a contracting provider for Medicare, Medi-Cal or Medicaid.

As a Community Service,  my practice accepts most forms of insurance, including EAP (employee assisstance plans), HMO and PPO plans by major US carriers. 

A partial list of carriers  billed directly includes:

    • Blue Cross, Blue Shield
    • US Behavioral Health
    • Health Net
    • Managed Health Network
    • MVP
    • ValueOption
    • Cigna

If you would like to know what your insurance benefits would likely be for psychotherapy services with me,  please contact your insurance carrier for clarification.

Sliding Scale Policy:  I do have a sliding fee scale for those persons without insurance who express a need to have lower fees and who come to therapy in my Cotati office regularly. (Not available in South Bay Area).
