Do you accept insurance?
No, I am private pay only. However, I am happy to provide the necessary paperwork for out-of-network reimbursement.
I can't make it to your office? Is there another option?
Yes! I provide teletherapy sessions. We can do our sessions via telephone or video if you are located in California. Let me know if this is something you are interested in.
What is your approach?
My style is eclectic & tailor made for you. However, I always work from a relational, psychodynamic, & attachment based lens. I also use EMDR when appropriate.
What is EMDR?
EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) is a type of therapy that targets negative thoughts, feelings, and body sensations related to past or future events. Bilateral stimulation (left to right) is then incorporated allowing you to reprocess the memories & make new positive connections in the brain. Bilateral stimulation can be visual, auditory, or tactile. EMDR helps you change negative experiences into positive, adaptive, or resolved ones. Want more info? CLICK HERE
