About

Hi everyone. I'm an analytically-trained psychiatrist with a background in family medical practice and also in Buddhism. At this point my practice is adult psychotherapy and I am no longer treating patients who need medication. Although I'm trained in analytic therapy, my approach varies according to individual needs. I see depressed or anxious patients , those struggling with losses, stress, life events, or in their relationships and other issues as well. I have a particular interest in working with adult victims of childhood sexual abuse and those with severe depression. I also offer individualized teaching to adult therapists.
My first concern is to provide an environment where patients can feel safe enough to do the work of healing. I am also not so much concerned with "changing" them as with decreasing the unnecessary suffering in their lives and in helping to heal that suffering where possible.
At present I am seeing patients on a private-pay basis only. My practice is located in the Carmichael area of Sacramento, California, where I am available for weekday appointments. Zoom sessions are available. Again please note, my practice is psychotherapy only, not medication-management. My DIRECT line: (916) 973-9863. My DIRECT email: PGONPO@GMAIL.COM

Finances

  • Cost per Session: $160 - $170
Pay By: Cash, Check
At this point I no longer accept any form of insurance, including Medicare or Medi-Cal. I accept payment at the time of each visit.
