What happens in therapy?
Therapy with me includes you sharing your experiences, me listening and helping you build insight into your humanity and existing superhero strengths, and then discussing and practicing skills that you can try in your real life. You let me know what works and what does not, I'll keep offering ideas and support. I often use sincere acceptance, silly or goofy humor, and personalized encouragement.

1) Private pay full fee $130/session

What's LMFT mean?
LMFT stands for Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist. LMFTs offer assessment and treatment of clinically relevant symptoms (depression, anxiety, and stress for example) with the goals of symptom relief and increased functioning within relationships. LMFT's complete a 2-4 year graduate program, over 3,000 hours of supervised in person mental health services, and successfully pass two board exams (law and ethics and also the clinical exam). In California, the Board of Behavioral Sciences verifies requirements are met by each licensed mental health individual, which is maintained by completed continuing education units (CEUs) and adhering to all around legal and ethical behavior. Before hiring any licensed mental health provider in California, verify the status of the provider's license at https://search.dca.ca.gov/
