    Office Space, Parking & Directions

     It is nestled just above Hayes Valley and slightly south of Pacific Heights at the corner of Bush and Octavia in the historic ‘Healing Arts Building’ at 1801 Bush Street, Suite 115, San Francisco, CA, 94109.

    My office is central to just about every community in San Francisco and easily accessible throughout the bay area.


    While parking is generally simple in this area, I suggest allowing yourself about 10 minutes to find a space and a few minutes to walk to the office.


    On Octavia, in front of the office, you will find free 1 hour parking. The surrounding blocks offer free 2 hour parking.

    There is also a parking lot south of the building on Octavia Street. It belongs to the Queen Anne Hotel across the street in the Victorian building. You are welcome to park in any open hotel spot, provided you pay $2.50 to the conierge at the front desk of the hotel. They will give you a temporary permit to place on your dash.

    Appointments & Billing


    Sessions are 45-50 minutes in length and are arranged together at the commencement of treatment. When indicated, I schedule couples for 75-90 minutes. When receiving consultation for separation or divorce work, meeting times are generally 75-120 minutes.


    At our first consultation, I will go over my office policies and any questions you may have about our work together.

    For on-going therapy, once we find a day and time that works for us both, I will hold that hour for you each week. For consultation and separation/divorce work, we will schedule as needed.

    Should something change, we can revisit it at anytime.

    We will discuss fees and payment during our initial phone consultation. I accept debit cards and credit cards through PayPal. I do offer a sliding scale dependent upon financial need.

    Payments are generally expected at the end of each session or at the end of the month. Auto-pay can be arranged. Invoices will go out at the end of each month and payment is expected by the following week.


    I can provide your insurance provider with a detailed invoice and they can reimburse you directly.

    We can discuss any questions you may have regarding our personal situation during our initial consultation as well as throughout our work together.


    If you are experiencing a psychiatric emergency, dial 911 or go to your nearest emergency room. You may also call the SF Psychiatric Emergency Response Team at 415.206.8125.
