Who comes to therapy?

We have a systemic approach to therapy.  Many times the changes that we make are often overlooked by the most significant people in our lives.  So we include not only you in treatment, we include those that will be able to help or hurt your attempts at changing. But  you are in charge. We invite those to your session at your request and when you are ready. 


How long does therapy take?

Therapy is different for everyone.  Treatment for any issue has a beginning, middle, and ending. We are very aware of the time and financial investment you are making when it comes to receiving our services.  Most clients are motivated to seek help and tools to help them make lasting changes. We are here to help you reach your goal. We will work as hard as you do and keep you on track.


How often do I need to come?

Depending on your needs, you may choose to come daily, weekly, twice per week, once per month. . . .  you are the one who deternines when you would like to come. Typically, when entering therapy clients start with weekly appointments, then decide to spread their appointments to every other week, then once per month.


How much does therapy cost?

We offer flexible plans for your treatment. You may choose session times from 30 minutes to 2 hours. We offer rates that are manageable.


Do you take insurance?

Yes, currently I am a Cigna Health Care and Blue Cross Blue Shield of California Insuranceprovider. I am in the process of accepting others as well.  I am an Employee Assistance Provider (EAP) through Cigna and Magellan Behavorial Health Services.
