  We hold to the highest standards of our profession as established by our various professional organizations.

  We believe in ongoing development of our skills and each year we more than meet the continuing education requirements for our licensure renewal. 

  Living and practicing in the Bay Area's dynamic multi-cultural and multi-racial environment, we have learned from their own experience to naturally explore how racial and cultural experiences affect an individual's psychological development and persona. This enhances our clinical work.

  We believe you  and your therapist should mutually determine the appropriate type of therapy and length of treatment based on your needs. Should you use insurance that requires treatment authorization information, we will provide whatever information is requested with your full knowledge and participation.  Your therapist will also discuss your treatment plan and answer questions in the process of your therapy.

  We believe you have the right to privacy in your therapy and follow the HIPPA guidelines. We will be happy to discuss any concerns you might have regarding confidentiality and privacy. . 

FEES: Your fee will be established by you and your therapist.  Many of our therapists accept most insurance plans (detailed list on each therapist's homepage). 
Some of our therapists are able to offer sliding scale fees for clients with documented financial hardship; please discuss this during your initial contact.

FOR MORE INFORMATION OR TO REQUEST AN APPOINTMENT,  please call us or the therapist directly. If leaving a message, please list available times for us to call back and your preferred callback phone numbers. We will make every effort to return your call within 24 hours. If we do not reach you directly, your privacy and confidentiality will be respected when we leave a message.
