What is therapy?

Image Therapy can be many things.

  • It is a place to gain valuable insights and strategies to overcome life’s difficulties.
  • It helps people see and identify life’s possibilities and give them momentum toward opportunity.
  • It is a method to help people look at their thinking and behaviors in order to increase their personal effectiveness.
  • It is a process to understand conflict, define steps through it and to obtain support while navigating it.

Why use a Licensed Therapist?

Feature 1 There are many resources for people to seek assistance. It makes the most sense to seek out the assistance from people whose credentials clearly establish themselves as being fully competent to provide the most effective means to provide a return on your invest of time and money. Businesses conduct background checks before hiring a person or another company. Going to a licensed professional means you are signing up to seek help from somebody who has already undergone a rigorous background check given by the State of California. ... read more

Therapy

ImageIndividual Therapy is with one client as the center of the work.




ImageCouples Therapy is with two people who are married, domestic partners or are “significant others.” The purpose of couples work is to establish healthy communication and to learn and practice ways to work together as life partners, and to form realistic expectations for successful living.

ImageFamily Therapy involves as many members of the family as is possible. The purpose is to establish healthy communication, to stop damaging behaviors and to learn and practice new behaviors.


ImageGroup Therapy includes from three to fifteen clients with a common or similar concern. It is highly effective because, well there may be disclosure anxiety during the first couple of sessions, clients can learn from witnessing each other’s work. These groups may offer support among the group participants between sessions.

Workshops

Image Workshops are trainings to learn about a specific topic. Those who sign register with this website may elect to receive notices about workshops as when they are scheduled.

Coaching

Image Coaching is a process to assist a client in reaching their goals. It does not include examining feelings or the past. Its objective is to either provide support and direction to complete a specific project or develop a specific skill; or to learn a new skill set.




Examples of coaching are:

  • A person wishes to obtain new employment. Coaching could include creating a resume, developing and implementing an effective job search plan, monitoring of the on-going effort in implementing the job search plan, learning effective interviewing skills, planning effective follow-up after an interview, successful acceptance of a job offer and entry into the new job.
  • A human resources professional of a small company would like to develop a policy on a specific topic. Coaching could include an interactive process of defining the purpose of the policy, developing an outline, discussing the language style, evaluating the process to gain support within the business for the policy, reflecting on any required approval process, or planning an effective implementation process.
  • A president or a chief executive officer of a small business would like to create an organization chart to ensure the company staffing is in alignment with the mission and goals of the business. Coaching could include an interactive process in defining and creating a current mission statement and a process to identify the tasks and responsibilities of staff members, a process to evaluate how those tasks strategically serve the organization; guidance in creating an organization chart, or a plan to communicate and implement changes.

Insurance and Method of Work

Insurance - If you wish to obtain medical insurance coverage for your therapy, please provide me with your medical insurance contact information and I will call to determine the coverage your insurance provides. I work with all medical insurance on an “out of network” basis.
Victim of Crime - If you are a Victim of a Crime, I will work with the State of California Victims Program to determine if you can obtain free therapy.
Every client has their own needs and creating a place of safety and understanding is of utmost importance. At my office, people find hope while they discover within themselves strength and learn new ways of perceiving. Coping skills are learned (or possibly simply rediscovered). During sessions, people discover their strengths and who they “are.” Social skills and new ways of relating with people may be developed. People with no spirituality or with deep spirituality can find sanctuary to heal and grow.
The theoretical orientations I work with include psychodynamic, cognitive behavioral, family systems, existential/spiritual, humanistic, and gestalt.
Normally during the first few sessions the reason for seeking help is explored and by around the 6th session goals you wish to work on are defined and the process of therapy is well underway. How long the therapy lasts depends on you. Fewer sessions are necessary for people who are highly motivated to quickly find solutions, look at their thinking and behaviors, ready to try new ways of communicating and do homework between sessions. Other people need more time to understand their options and process change. Some people need on-going support as they unfold in their growth and healing process.

It is time to get support if you are experiencing challenges with any of the following:

Victim of Crime, Crisis:

Have you experienced a tragic event that has left you feeling empty, angry, hurt and less of a person than you felt before you had the experience? After dreadful events, many people experience confusion, anger, and/or shame. Many people experience fear in requesting help. Would you like to feel whole and stable enough to continue on your own? We are here to assist you (and those who love you the most) with your and their feelings and mental unrest. All services provided are confidential. Meet in the safety of our office to discuss what happened and how to help you.

If you filed your police report, the service might be free because the State of California Victims Program may pay for your treatment. The most important thing is that if you work on your treatment you can learn to regain a sense of control in your life and learn how to establish a plan to be safe.
