Frequently Asked Questions

Do you offer free a consultation?

I do. You are welcome to a free 15-minute phone consultation with me so we can meet each other and determine if we are a good fit. You’ll be able to ask me any question that you may have, and I can learn about your situation to determine if my skill sets match your needs.

How can I request a new appointment?

You can request a new appointment here. Or, feel free to contact me online or call me at (949) 525-3775.

How much does therapy cost?
$150 per session. Sliding scale available.
A limited number of sliding-scale slots are available depending on income, circumstances, and ability to pay.
What type of insurance do you accept?

I do not take insurance. I can provide monthly “superbills”. Please contact your insurance company and ask about reimbursement for out of network providers.

What can I expect to get out of therapy?

Depending on the reasons you are seeking out therapy, what you can expect to get out of therapy differs. Generally, my clients are seeking clarity around a certain issue, want to break the cycle of bad habits, or need advice and counsel about a current life situation. Whatever is going on for you, hopefully therapy will make it easier by providing clarity, relief, confidence, or whatever you feel you need at this time.

What types of therapy do you offer?

I offer therapy for individuals in English, Farsi, or German.

  • Cross-Cultural Competency
  • Depression
  • Anxiety & Related Issues

  • Life Transitions
  • Substance-Related and Other Addictive Issues

How long does it take to feel better?

This varies from person to person. Some people feel a sense of relief after the first session, while for others it may take multiple sessions to start feeling a shift.

How can I know if we are good match?

This is a great question… it’s important to feel comfortable and safe with your therapist. The best way to know if we are a match is by doing a free consultation so we can speak and get a feel for each other. Usually we can determine if we’d be a good match after one conversation. Please feel free to request a free 15-minute phone consultation by contacting me online or calling (949) 525-3775.
