If you are struggling with how your past is still impacting who you are today, you are ready and willing to take concrete steps toward healing, let's talk. Your past wounds do not have to control how you are experiencing your life today and your future. I want to learn what happened to you and go beyond a diagnosis that may have been given to you. I specialize in treating trauma/PTSD, and here is a short video from me explaining how EMDR could help: https://youtu.be/vagyOVbJBG8

Are you struggling with the demands of transitioning from teen years to adulthood? Maybe having to establish a stable identity, prepare for a career and transition into the workforce? Are you feeling discouraged, irritable, insecure, afraid and indecisive? This is especially true for those who begin their adult life with substance use, emotional disorders, and codependency. Exploration of your identity and managing anxiety can help you develop confidence in yourself. I have spent years working in settings helping individuals, families, and groups learn to navigate life’s challenges with compassion and understanding of their values.

The decision to seek help can be an incredibly daunting task. However, the need for help is valid for all of us and it is something I believe should be better normalized. Whether we are feeling stuck, experiencing anxiety or depression, struggling in life transitions, or relationship issues, sometimes a comforting form of support can help us weather those challenges so that we do not feel so alone. Having this kind of support in facing such challenges can be deeply reassuring. As a therapist, I hope to accompany you on your journey and help you overcome any such challenges.

Dr. Blaire Heath grew up in Southern California and started doing volunteer work locally and abroad when she was in high school, including mission trips to Latin America and Africa. Her passion for helping others and health brought me to pursue the field of nutrition and pharmacy. However, following a medical mission trip to Haiti after the earthquake in 2010, she really felt a calling to pursue medicine and work more closely with patients. She loves that the field of mental health applies to the whole person: body, mind, and spirit and that overall health means not just addressing a single area of one’s life.

Cigna and Evernorth Therapists
Cigna and its healthcare division Evernorth provide behavioral health coverage though managed care plans and Medicare Advantage plans. Outside the U.S., Cigna provides insurance through Cigna Global Health Benefits.

Cigna and Evernorth HMO plans only cover services from in-network providers and require a referral from your primary care physician. EPO plans also utilize in-network providers but generally do not require a PCP referral. PPO plans offer the most flexibility and a larger network of providers, and may include some out of network benefits.

Occasionally Cigna or Evernorth Therapists in University City, San Diego will only accept a limited number of in-network insurance patients in their practice, so it's important to check if your plan is accepted when you book a consultation.

Based in Connecticut, Cigna insures 180 million people in more than 30 countries around the world. Cigna rebraded its health services division as Evernorth in September 2021.

Here’s a link to more information on how insurance works to cover behavioral health benefits.
