The first step would be to simplify the circuit by turning it into a series combination. Do not forget that inductors act like resistors in series and parallel; on the other hand, capacitors act in the opposite manner. Capacitors in parallel act like resistors in series and capacitors in series act like resistors in parallel.

Finally, combine the last three capacitors in parallel.
