This, along with providing a safe environment to talk about and explore the feelings that are avoided by substance use is what sets my practice apart.
Drawing from 28 years working in the addiction recovery profession, while working in residential and outpatient treatment, my practice helps those who would like to pursue recovery from alcohol or drug addiction without the cost and time commitment of formal rehab. The ideal client for my practice is one who is experiencing consequences from their alcohol and/or drug use and wants to get sober or explore the possibility of such. I also work with families that have an addicted loved one and would like some direction. I have been sober myself for 30 years and have a passion to helps others receive the gift of recovery.

I specialize in life transitions, self-esteem, substance use , identity exploration, and trauma recovery.
My clients come to therapy seeking some form of healing in their lives and we get to work together to make that a reality. I love being able to hold a non-judgmental, supportive and authentic space for my clients to dive into the depths of their pain and transform it into their personal power. I enjoy intuitively finding the strengths in each of my clients and supporting their healing journeys from a place of collaboration and compassion. It is a gift to provide a safe container for my clients to do their inner work and this is not something I take for granted. We simply do not exist without each other on this journey of life.

What type of Long Beach 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 Long Beach?
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.
