My primary therapeutic approaches are Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy.
Seeking therapy can feel uncomfortable, intimidating and even overwhelming. Are you feeling as though something in your life seems “off or not right?" It may seem easier to continue with our "old day-to-day" habits because it is how we have been surviving all this time. We sometimes develop unhealthy patterns because it feels safe and we do not have the positive support needed. Significant change requires deep personal examination, which is hard to do on our own. My goal is to help you change old patterns and grow from past struggles. Growth and healing is not only a process but a beautiful journey.

What type of Palm Desert 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 or psychologist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counselor in Palm Desert?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering 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.
