I believe in working together to build supports and a positive experience for the clients I work with. I believe in working on changing thoughts that then can hopefully change behaviors and eventually create a more positive experience/life for the client that I work with. Therapy is a team effort and not just one person is responsible for the outcome. If you have anxiety, depression or have overall negative thoughts that seem to impact you more and more, we can work together to over come that.

There is no time like the present to get help. Maybe you’re looking to learn how to cope with current issues that are stressful or maybe you’re ready to tackle old issues that eat away at you. Old or new, I understand that stress results in depression, anxiety, persistent worry, grief, feeling hopeless and alone, and damages self-esteem. Mood, thought patterns, relationships, and job performance suffer and can feel dreadful. I am able to help you work through stress and trauma, in order to better manage your life regardless of the root cause. Change is always possible!

Deciding to pursue therapy for your child, teen, yourself, or your family is a difficult yet rewarding decision. It is not often that we give ourselves the time and attention to focus on our feelings, frustrations and desires, but doing so can change our perceptions of ourselves and the world around us. My theoretical orientation integrates Mindfulness and solution-focused therapy with cognitive behavioral interventions that will reduce stress immediately.

What type of Santa Maria 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 Santa Maria?
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.
