My Approach to Helping

Welcome! I am so glad you found me

I am Aviva and I believe that all people have the capacity to excel and achieve their life goals and dreams. I am honored to be a therapist and work with individuals as they journey through life's struggles to discover their own personal meaning of life and find the tools they need to be successful. I am currently providing telehealth sessions to anyone in California.

I am an EMDR trained therapist and I work with individuals, families and couples to help them make their lives more fulfilling and more successful. Trust, authenticity and healing are the main components to my approach to therapy. I am direct and open with my communication and help clients act the same way in their life. I believe that we can all achieve the life that we are seeking and sometimes we just need a little help to get there.

Are you feeling anxious andor depressed? Feeling as though nothing is working out for you and that you are stuck in patterns that no longer serve you? Do you stay awake at night worried or saddened by your current life? Often we create patterns of as a result of our childhood experiences that don't allow us to thrive as adults. Much of the time we aren't even aware of our patterns and of how they are not serving us. Therapy can help reveal these patterns and change them into adaptive ways of living.

Through EMDR therapy I am able to help individuals become unstuck and push onward into the life they dream of. I will teach you mindfulness skills and resources designed to help you better manage the everyday stresses of life. Then we can engage in EMDR therapy and shift negative cognitions into positive cognitions thus allowing you to move forward and feel empowered and free.

My approach to counseling is to work with individuals or families to help them find the peace and satisfaction they are looking for. I provide a safe, caring and nurturing environment so that you can feel comfortable to share and get the help that you need. I dont insist that I know best but rather encourage you to find the answers within yourself. As a team we will work together to create new perspectives and new ways of living that are satisfying and rewarding.

More Info About My Practice

My rates are $185 a session however I am able to offer a lower fee to accommodate the current difficult economic situations that many of us are facing. I will work with any client to make therapy affordable because I believe that people deserve to get the help that they need and financial difficulties should not stand in their way. I also currently offer a free consultation session.

My Role as a Therapist

As a therapist I believe my role is to aid and help clients move toward their goals. I am a flawed human being who is constantly learning and growing and improving. I make mistakes all the time. As your therapist I will be there to create a safe space for us to do the work needed to do to make the changes that you are seeking. Together we will work to address the barriers that are standing in your way. I will provide a caring and thoughtful space where we can process maladaptive patterns and create new patterns. I will never tell you what to do but rather engage with you to overcome and create new experiences and new mindsets that will empower and allow you to be your best self!
