General Questions:

Do you take insurance? Why or why not?

  • Insurance companies require a “hard diagnosis” for each client, which follows them for the rest of their lives. This can impact their ability to get life insurance.
  • Regulation policies by insurance companies can compromise the level of confidentiality
  • Sessions may require more frequent sessions than insurance companies are willing to pay for.
  • If you would like to use your insurance and it is a PPO, the office will provide you with a statement that can be used to request reimbursement for therapy sessions.

How do you provide services?

  • All sessions are provided via Zoom. Zoom is HIPAA Compliant. On a case-by-case basis, psychological evaluations for immigration cases may be conducted at the office of your respective immigration lawyer.

Simply call or email or use my online booking system below to set up and manage your sessions.

What age ranges do you work with?

I work with individuals who are 12 y/o and above

Do you work with Women, Men? Couples? LGBTQ+…?

I have a strong understanding of sexuality/gender identities and pride myself in creating a safe environment for all people regardless of sexual orientation, religion, ethnicity, race, age over 12 y/o, and culture.

What do you do in sessions with clients?

For psychological evaluations for immigration cases and individual mental health therapy; I see each session as a new opportunity to address the immediate concerns and obstacles that my clients may be experiencing.

Do your clients receive assignments to work on between sessions?

It depends. Everyone is different and the treatment modalities are different for individual mental health therapy. Some clients are best suited for homework between sessions while others are not.

For psychological immigration evaluations, the client will not be tasked with any homework assignments since this is not considered therapy.

What is your professional training and education and what modalities do you use in your client work?

  • I graduated with my Doctor of Behavioral Health from Arizona State University, a Master in Social Work from the University of Southern California, and a Bachelor in Social Science from Washington State University. I am a licensed clinical social worker in the state of California (License 88911).
  • I am highly skilled and trained in utilizing evidence-based practices using Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Psychodynamic Therapy, Seeking Safety, Crisis Oriented Recovery Services, and Mindfulness-Based Therapy. Depending on the individual client and their needs, I incorporate numerous modalities to ensure each client is presented with the opportunity to achieve the results they are seeking in a timely manner.

What else does a client need to know to make the most out of working with you?

  • For Individual therapy sessions, come prepared to work. Many clients underestimate the level of work and commitment therapy entails. It is not an easy task. However, as someone who has seen countless amounts of clients achieves the “other side,” it is worth it.
  • You get out of therapy what you put in. Come ready and prepared to tackle each session openly and honestly.  I will be there to help amplify the hard work you put in.

Are you going to make me cry?

I can’t “make” anyone cry. However, I will ensure to create a comfortable environment that allows you to express whatever physical expressions of emotions you need.
