If you or your child suffer from OCD or other anxiety disorders, you're not alone. Anxiety disorders are the most common mental illness, yet most sufferers don't receive proper, evidence-based treatment. OCD/anxiety can cause problems socially, academically, professionally, and create chaos with family members. The good news is that there is help. Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) has repeatedly shown to be the most effective approach for defeating OCD and anxiety. CBT creates new neuro-pathways by changing the way you think and behave. It's basically exercise for the brain. The more you flex those brain muscles, the stronger you become.

Hi! I'm Deborah. I warmly invite you to share in the amazing possibilities that psychotherapy has to offer. Psychotherapy can be instrumental in recovery from challenges of mind and heart including: depression, anxiety, fear, mood swings, stress, low self-esteem, and life transitions. It can help you heal from victimization, violence, and trauma. It can make heartbreak understandable, tolerable and even growth-producing. It can provide the foundation for creating new healthier relationships based on respect, trust, healthy compromise, and compassion. It can take an ordinary life and make it extraordinarily rich and purposeful.

Is your life in balance? Many years of experience have taught me that the combination of psychological insight and behavioral change are necessary to make a difference in the two most important areas of life: relationships and work. Without change we "understand" but repeat the same self-defeating behaviors over and over. Family and friends can give great support but a psychotherapist is trained, neutral and can say things to you which are hard to hear from others and help you explore aspects of your life which are uncomfortable for you.

An out-of-network Therapist in Santa Monica has not agreed to any set rate with your insurer. Your plan may require higher co-pays, deductibles and co-insurance for out-of-network care and you may need to pay the difference between your insurer's allowed amount and what the Therapist charges.

The costs for a Santa Monica out-of-network Therapist also depend on your type of plan:

In a Health Maintenance Organization, or HMO, or Exclusive Provider Network, or EPO, you generally have to pay the full cost of any out-of-network care.

In a Preferred Provider Organization (PPO) or Point-of-Service (POS) plan, you will usually have to pay a higher deductible and or a higher co-pay plus a higher percentage co-insurance plus, the difference between the allowed amount and your provider's actual rate.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
