It takes time to choose the best therapist for you. When you're ready, let's talk and see if we might be a good fit. I appreciate the importance of this process, which is why I offer a free phone consultation to address any questions or concerns you may have prior to scheduling an appointment. Consider me a resource- even if we don't end up working together. Remember, life can be much more than survival. Change is closer than you may think. Keep reaching out.

Our lives have been turned upside down, as a nation and as human beings. It is not only the fear of contracting the COVID-19 virus, the fear that someone we care about may succumb to the virus, but also our financial stability and the upheaval to our lives, what we considered normal has been suddenly torn asunder. As a species, humans are highly adaptable. And, we will adapt to this too. Please reach out for help during these very trying times. It's better to act sooner than to wait if you feel your mental health is taking a toll.

During these Covid times, depression, anxiety, mood swings and relationship issues are playing a prominent part in our lives. I specialize in a personal approach that address who you are, what you’re experiencing, and where you’re trying to be. My orientation is Jungian, which involves compassion, dream work, the unconscious and insight. That which we can understand is more bearable and easier to shift. It results in a sense of richness and meaningfulness. I am also pragmatic in my use of cognitive behavioral tools, which support the process. Ignoring nagging issues rarely results in them going away. It can get be better.

Due to the virus, high anxiety has increased dramatically. My clients wish to manage their anxiety and use this time proactively. Many of my clients have wounds from the past and suffer from depression, fears, perfectionism, loneliness, burn-out, weight, sleep problems, addictions, obsessions, and/or pain around their sexual orientation. It's important to process great losses and identify underlying trauma. Rape victims will find a compassionate ear. It is wonderful when my clients are open to improve their (love) relationships and open their heart to the present moment. My clients are brave for seeking support and facing issues.

Teletherapy
Teletherapy and Online counseling have grown enormously as a medium for therapy since the advent of social distancing. Most therapists are happy to provide sessions by video or phone.

All professionals are licensed to provide video therapy to clients within the State in which they hold their license. Cross State licensing exists, but is rare.

So if you're a client in 90265, this list of teletherapists are licensed to provide therapy to you online (by phone, video or text based chat) because they are within your state. They are sorted nearest to furthest, with professionals in 90265 listed first.

Teletherapy via phone or video can be very similar to conventional in person sessions. The message is the same, even if the medium is different. There are some advantages in the form of convenience, lack of travel and being in comfort of your own home. Set against those, professionals find it more difficult to read non-verbal signals of their clients, and you may find you yourself can be more easily distracted.
