As fears, doubts, & uncertainty continue to climb due to the COVID-19, I'm offering video and phone sessions for clients that cannot come into the office. In addition, I am also offering a sliding scale arrangement for those that have been impacted financially. Please reach out by phone or email to discuss any concerns you might have. In the meantime be safe and practice self care.
The key to successful therapy begins with active listening – detailed attention to a client’s particular life circumstance begins to build mutual understanding, which reveals original perspectives. I closely partner with each client to help explore patterns and distorted core beliefs. Then, we work together to create understanding and change. I am influenced by Imago, Humanistic, Gestalt, and Psychodynamic theories. By combining these approaches which are tailored to each client’s circumstance, insight is gained and a deeper and more profound understanding of one’s self is reached.
For over 11 years, I was an assistant for "Getting the Love You Want "
workshops held in Long Beach California. The workshops focus on the principles of Imago Relationship Theory developed by Harville Hendrix, PhD. In addition to the "Getting the Love You Want" workshops,
I have led couple's and single's workshops and groups using the principles of Imago Relationship Theory. This theory helps couple's and single's to heal childhood wounds, resolve conflicts, and heighten their communication skills. Imago therapy also provides a structure that creates safety and connection.
My work as a high school teacher has helped to me understand teenagers and the problems they face each day. Being in their world and seeing what difficulties they face with life circumstances helps me to understand them and their process. My work with teens is not much different than adults. In addition to respect, I carefully listen, guide, and validate the life experience being presented by each individual.
You have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much your medical and mental health care will cost. Under the law, health care providers need to give patients who don’t have insurance or who are not using insurance an estimate of the expected charges for medical services, including psychotherapy services. You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency healthcare services, including psychotherapy services. You can ask your health care provider, and any other provider you choose, for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule a service. If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your Good Faith Estimate, you can dispute the bill. Make sure to save a copy or picture of your Good Faith Estimate. For questions or more information about your right to a Good Faith Estimate, visit www.cms.gov/nosurprises.
