I have always found people to be fabulously interesting. I believe that your story matters … together, using science-based theories and interventions, we can sort through feelings and behaviors that may seem destructive, confusing, or just too overwhelming to sort out alone. To be curious, with an openness to self-discovery, we can evolve and heal, and our capacity for love and growth ripples throughout our life.

Speaking your truth can be incredibly liberating. Therapy is a space where we can explore our identity and the factors that have molded us into who we are today. We can find meaning from our past and use it to better understand ourselves and have compassion for the way we have coped through adversity. We can explore the role that culture, oppression, trauma, family and relationships have on our identity, worldview and lifestyle expectations. We learn how to piece together our experiences into a cohesive sense of self…and then…we learn how to ride the waves of life.

What type of Bakersfield mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in Bakersfield?
When looking to find a therapist, it is certainly important to consider training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
