Imago therapy is an amazing relationship technology that very quickly gets us back to safe communication and experiencing our partner as a source of emotional safety, and passionate friendship. In my 35 years of working with couples as a specialty, Imago is the best system I have known to get us back to that feeling that we had in the beginning of our relationship. Its structured communication techniques distinguish it from all other types of couples therapy. the process itself feels very nonthreatening to both partners.

Are you ready to try something different? Life, and the changes that come with it, can be really difficult at times, especially in this modern age. Does this sound familiar? You wake up one morning and it just feels too difficult to get yourself going. You are watching your friends go through life events while you feel like you're still trying to figure things out. You find yourself crying while driving your car, and you can't explain why. You are constantly arguing with a loved one and you just can't stop.

I have many years of experience working with college, graduate, and medical students.

Your healing matters. Healing can often look like having stronger boundaries, less avoidance, improved work performance, and more satisfaction in relationships. Unresolved trauma can make your relationships, parenting, work performance, bodily functioning, and overall day-to-day routine feel unbearable. I provide therapy short-term or long-term to help you cope with what is lingering e.g. stress, anxiety, depression, or triggers to previous trauma. I adapt my therapy style depending on the person and context because each responds differently to psychotherapy. Providing a safe space is always my first priority.

Reaching out for help can feel like a matter of life and death. You might delay the call, hoping that whatever is wrong will go away. Unfortunately, profound suffering usually can’t be wished away. It needs to be confronted directly. Though perhaps not obvious, suffering internally or in your relationships may be an expression of unresolved childhood wounds. Now is the time to heal those wounds and reclaim your authentic self.

What type of mental health professional is right for me?
Some of the most common types of mental health providers in California are psychologists, licensed counselors, therapists, psychotherapists, and licensed clinical social workers, all of whom diagnose mental health conditions and provide individualized treatment.

Services offered, education and credentials vary by type of mental health professional. Each professional in California then may specialize in certain areas, such as depression, marriage counseling, or anxiety. Although many mental health providers are not licensed to prescribe medication, they may coordinate with a provider who can.

Both in-person and online therapy sessions are available from most psychologists.

How to find a specialist?
You can refine your search using the filters on this page. There are several categories you can filter by to find mental health professionals with the experience you are looking for. You may want to filter for CBT Psychologists in California, or Child Psychologists in California.

Many find it useful to use filters to view only psychologists that have experience working with certain issues, like California psychologists specializing in EMDR.

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. Psychologists in California specialize in therapeutic approaches such as CBT, EMDR, and Interpersonal Therapy (IPT), among others. 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?
Many therapists accept health insurance. Check to see if your insurance is covered. Feel free to discuss this when you contact the therapist.
