Being able to enjoy coming to therapy is a key piece to getting the most out of treatment. I strive to create an environment that is welcoming, open, and accepting. My goal is to create a space where you feel comfortable being you. In order to help you achieve your goals I believe it is important for us to work collaboratively. I specialize in CBT because its an evidence based treatment that shows high efficacy in working with lots of different kinds of struggles people may be facing. Also, because it focuses on having a collaborative relationship where you are empowered to be able to work through potential future issues without needing to rely on a therapist.

More Info About My Practice

I am able to accept some major insurance providers, and also provide fee for service sessions on a sliding scale based on household income. Please call or email for more information.

My office is conveniently located in Carmel Mountain Ranch off the 15 Freeway and Camino Del Norte with able parking and newly renovated 3 story office building.

The Duration and Frequency of Therapy

I recommend starting out at 1 session per week every week for at least 8-10 weeks. At that point I like to revisit your original goals to see if we are making progress. I've mentioned before that having a therapist you feel comfortable with is crucial. Follow your instincts. If you get a strong feeling that you are not with the right therapist after 3-4 sessions I strongly encourage you to bring this up with your therapist. Depending on your personal goal for therapy, it can last anywhere from 8 weeks to a year (or more). Periodically checking on progress towards goals is highly recommended.
