Therapy

Individual therapy

I work with adult individuals and couples from diverse cultural and religious backgrounds and am LGBTQ+ affirming.

My most commonly addressed issues in individual therapy are:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Relationship challenges
  • Grief & loss (as a result of a break-up, divorce, estrangement, or death)
  • Life transitions/life path
  • Identity confusion/development
  • Self-worth & inner critic
  • Boundary-setting & communication
  • Perfectionism
  • Stress & feeling overwhelmed

Couples therapy

I work with couples at all stages, including dating, engaged, partnered, married, or separating/divorcing.

I commonly address the following topics with couples:

  • Communication
  • Connectedness
  • Physical and emotional intimacy
  • Working better as a team
  • Meeting each other’s needs

Location of Services

Most of my practice is comprised of teletherapy, as clients often prefer the convenience and accessibility of meeting virtually.

Video sessions are conducted through Simple Practice, a secure, HIPAA-compliant platform developed specifically for the purpose of connecting clients and therapists.

*You must reside in the state of California.

The remainder of my clients are seen outdoors at park in North Park, San Diego, as some clients prefer the healing and restorative benefits of fresh air and sunshine, as well as feeling more relaxed and open than in the traditional therapy office.

*Privacy is still maintained, as we sit distanced from others at the park.

Insurance

I am an out-of-network provider and do not directly bill insurance. My fee is an up-front cost to you, but if you have a PPO, it is possible you will be partially reimbursed after you submit a superbill (which I would provide to you) to your insurance company. 

If you’re hoping to find an in-network provider, www.psychologytoday.com is a useful resource.

Estimated number of sessions

Every client’s needs and circumstances are different.

As a general rule, I recommend committing to at least five to seven sessions, as it will take a couple of sessions for me to understand your history and presenting concerns and co-create a treatment plan with you.

In general, I recommend beginning with weekly sessions to build momentum and then tapering to bi-weekly or monthly, when appropriate.
