I'm a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in the state of California (#100893). I offer Psychotherapy services to adults, couples and families in a private setting (Clovis, CA) or via Telemedicine (video therapy).
My style of work or therapeutic approach follows evidence based approach modalities such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy, and Choice Theory. At times, I utilize hypnosis as a tool of change for my clients, when requested or clinically appropriate.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is considered among the most rapid in terms of results obtained. The average number of sessions clients receive is generally 14 – 18. We begin by setting goals that you want to achieve. CBT is time-limited in that we help clients understand at the very beginning of the therapy process that there will be a point when the formal therapy will end. The ending of the formal therapy is a decision made by the therapist and client. Therefore, CBT is not an open-ended, never-ending process.
Some forms of therapy assume that the main reason people get better in therapy is because of the positive relationship between the therapist and client. Cognitive Behavioral therapists believe it is important to have a good trusting relationship, but that is not enough. CBT therapists believe that clients change because they learn how to think differently and they act on that learning.
My main areas of focus are:
-Life stress, Work Stress
-Major Life transitions, and Unexpected Life Changes
-Grief, Loss, and Separation
-Anxiety and Overthinking
-Self Esteem & Feeling Overwhelmed
-Dating & Romantic Relationships
-Interpersonal Relationship Struggles
-Traumatic Experiences in Adulthood (and Childhood)
For new clients, I offer a free 20-30 minute consultation in order to discuss your particular situation and how I can be of help in what brings you to therapy.
I accept clients with coverage under Anthem Blue Cross.
If you have coverage under a different provider, I suggest that you contact your insurance carrier and inquire if they reimburse for “out of network” behavioral health or psychotherapy services. If they do, you will pay me the full session fee and I will provide you a receipt/superbill for your services. You can submit that receipt to your insurance company for reimbursement.
In an effort to provide services to those who might not otherwise be able to afford them, I offer a limited number of slots at a reduced, sliding-scale rate.
My standard fee is :
$130 per session, with individuals and minors.
$150 per session, with couples and families.
I accept cash, checks, credit cards, Paypal and Bitcoin as forms of payment.
Am I the right Therapist for you?
Selecting the right therapist is obviously an important decision and I encourage you to be discerning. Although training and experience obviously matter, it is most important that you find someone who feels right to you and/or your family.
My words and pictures on this site will give you some sense of who I am and if you are drawn to work with me. As these depictions are inherently limited, it is typically best for us to talk on the phone and ideally meet in person so you can get a deeper sense of whether or not this is a good fit for you and/or your family.
Thank you for your consideration.
