You may have some questions about therapy and my practice. For this I have included a brief FAQ that may answer some of your questions. If your question isn't here please reach out so I can answer your question personally.
Do you accept insurance?
I am not in-network with any insurance but provide a superbill for clients to attempt to obtain reimbursement. I recommend checking in with your insurance plan to verify your out of network coverage and the likelihood of reimbursement.
Where do sessions take place?
I offer in person therapy sessions in Huntington Beach and Mission Viejo. I also offer online sessions via Telehealth. To access your telehealth appointment at the time of session, locate the link in the client portal or in your appointment reminder email. For computers, just click the link and your video session will open. For phones, you will need to download the Telehealth app.
How often do I attend and for how long?
Clients that make a weekly commitment tend to benefit the most from treatment. I also recommend people try to commit for at least 6 months to really implement the skills and see more lasting change. It can be tempting to stop treatment once we see an improvement or are not in crisis, but often this is when the deeper work is really starting and we can work to work to make lasting change. Remember, the more you put into it, the more you get out of it.
How do I set up an appointment?
The best way to schedule your first session for counseling is by reaching out via the contact me link or by calling me at 714-388-6376.
What are your specialties?
I specialize in treating anxiety, depression, addiction, relationship issues, self esteem / confidence building, stress management, life transitions, trauma, and more. Additionally, I specialize in working with adults, teens, and young adults.
What modalities do you use?
I tend to implement psychodynamic, CBT, DBT, trauma focused, EMDR, narrative, attachment theory, positive psychology depending on which modality is indicated and works best for the individual.
If you have any additional questions please feel free to reach out directly and I would be happy to answer those for you and get you connected to help.
