I am honored to build an affirmative therapy practice in my community, providing in-depth, contemporary, relational psychotherapy that brings sociocultural contexts into the room. In collaboration with my clients, I hope to co-create a therapeutic relationship that encourages my clients to process and fully experience emotions, move through depression and anxiety, and re-frame negative thoughts and patterns with a deeper understanding of their origins. Together, we engage bravely (and playfully) with unexamined thoughts, feelings and experiences!
I work with individuals, couples and families on topics including sexual identity, coming out, non-traditional relationships and families, polyamory and negotiating open relationships, BDSM and D/s relationships. I have a passion for working with lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender, genderqueer and gender non-conforming individuals & their loved ones.
I am currently accepting new clients in a private practice setting in the Downtown Long Beach as well as Downtown Los Angeles.
Q: How long does therapy usually last?
A: Therapeutic relationships, like any other kind of relationship, take time to build trust and rapport. Although it varies from client to client, I believe that deeper and more radical shifts happen over a longer timeline. Therapy can continue for as long as you are experiencing it's positive impact on your life!
Q: What is your fee? Do you take insurance?
A: My current fee is $150 per 50 minute session. In order to make therapy financially feasible for clients, I do offer several sliding scale appointment slots, and I encourage potential clients to discuss cost concerns during our initial phone consultation. If you are looking for therapy at a lower fee, I encourage you to reach out to my associate, Tiffany Hooton.
I do not bill insurance companies directly, and it is up to you to discuss out of network coverage with your insurance company.
