Seeing a therapist has been stereotyped as a negative thing in our society. Where else can one go to be seen and heard as well as gain insight into their lives without judgement or shame? Psychotherapy is the treatment that allows us to revisit old hurts, current pain, and other emotional experiences, develop a new understanding of them and begin to reshape our thoughts and feelings in healthier ways.
Therapy can be as quick as a few sessions and can be longer term depending on the treatment plan that is discussed and agreed upon within the first two sessions and when the goals are accomplished, either the client terminates or new goals need to be set.
I am not currently accepting insurance, however if you have Out of Network benefits for Outpatient Psychotherapy/Behavioral Health, I can provide you with a monthly form to submit to your insurance company for reimbursement. Most PPO plans provide a percentage of coverage for psychotherapy and I always recommend potential clients look into these prior to beginning therapy.
Credit cards or checks.
I have been in private practice in Los Angeles, CA for over 24 years. Every therapist like every doctor has a specialty and mine is working with adolescents and adults who are dealing with gender identity and sexual orientation issues. I work with the person exploring themselves as well as their partners, children, friends and allies.
My former career was in the entertainment business and I enjoy working with actors, writers, agents, directors, executives, and producers where confidentiality is honored and respected.
I also work with professional and amateur athletes and find that having a coach to work on the mental game works hand in hand with the physical and improves the athletes performance overall.
