WHAT I OFFER
My office is a safe, warm and empathetic environment for clients to share their unique life experiences and receive the validation and support that they need. Through counseling, I help clients discover the underlying causes for current struggles, which allows for a deeper level of healing, growth, sustained recovery and happiness. I believe that you already have the resources within you to solve issues and problems and heal from your past. My job as your therapist is to help you tap into that wealth of undiscovered knowledge,
I hold dual master's degrees in Clinical Social Work as well as Marriage and Family Therapy and have received extensive training in a variety of settings, including Barnes-Jewish Hospital in St. Louis, the Orange County Rescue Mission in Tustin, CA, and Pepperdine University's outpatient counseling clinic, where I provided individual, family, and group counseling on issues ranging from depression and anxiety to substance abuse and relationship difficulties.
I have also worked in detox/rehab treatment centers providing therapy to individuals in recovery. I am a skilled practitioner of an approach that draws on systems theory, traditional cognitive-behavioral therapy, mindfulness-based cognitive therapy (MBCT), and narrative therapy.
I currently accept the following types of insurance: Cigna, Magellan, Blue Shield, United Healthcare, Optum, and Oscar.
If you wish to use private pay, I offer a sliding fee scale to my clients that ranges from $90 to $130 per 60-minute session. Payment is due at the beginning of each session. Cash, check, credit card & Paypal accepted.
