My Approach to Helping

Chelsea's heart is in working with couples and families to help facilitate an increase in connection and relationship satisfaction. She works from an attachment base, examining family of origin, life experiences and current needs for connection. She works with individuals to help identify their values, their struggles, and their goals, to help them identify how to work toward honoring each of those. As an integral part of her work with individuals and couplesfamilies, she provides an empathic presence, honoring our differences as individuals and recognizing that we are partnering to do this work together. She is not the doctor and you are not the sick patient. Rather you are a team, collaborating together to foster your own personal growth.

Gina's heart is with couples and adolescents where she shares her passion for connection and relationship through her personalized work, meeting clients where they are at in a collaborative process. She is holistic in her philosophy, exploring family of origin, trauma, and life circumstances as an integral part of the work that she does.

Martin is new to our clinic and she brings with her fresh insights and perspective in looking at the world and community and relationship. Her style is open, restorative and collaborative. She has a focus on community integration and provides a safe place to explore self, meaning of life and purpose.

For our couples work, we utilize the Gottman method, providing assessment, evaluation and ongoing couples work. First, we have to identify where the strengths and weaknesses are within the relationship, then we can set goals for strengthening the connection and level of attachment. We work with couples ongoing to help them learn "how to fight", how to repair after a fight, and how to turn toward one another with a sense of respect. We work to build and foster friendship within the relationship, as a foundational part of our work together.

At the heart of the therapy we provide, is an inherent belief that we all struggle and we all seek ways to balance our needs and our wants and we all need relationships with others. We do not function in isolation. We need one another. We need connection. Holistic health requires that we look at our physical health, our emotional health, our sleep, exercise, relationships and purpose behind each of these, so our work together will be layered and whole-person minded.

More Info About My Practice

We work with insurance predominantly as out of network providers, however, I we do have contracts with Healthnet and Pacific Source. And Gina works with OHP.

We will bill your insurance for you as a courtesy to you to help our process together be as fluid as possible.

What I Love about Being a Psychotherapist

Our heart is all about relationships, whether you're married, dating or single, we all have relationships with others around us and learn about ourselves and our values based on these relationship dynamics. Our clinic is passionate about connection, attachment and overall wellbeing in the context of relationship.

The Duration and Frequency of Therapy

We see therapy as a process. Not a one time or couple of times appointment. We are complex, multi-faceted beings and our concerns and issues are not "solved" or "fixed" quickly or in haste. We need time to develop a connection in our work together, and we need time to foster growth in a holistic way. We encourage our clients to engage in a journey of self-discovery, rather than just seek treatment for a single symptom and move on. Therefore our work with clients tends to be more long-term and in-depth, than short term.
