In Office Therapy
Where are sessions held? In a business complex off of Katella in Los Alamitos, CA. Exact address provided once you have scheduled your first appointment.
What can I Expect? My office is located in a business complex off of Katella (near the Costco and Race Track). I share a waiting room with another therapist - sometimes she is there and there may be another person in the waiting room with you. For your first session, come a few minutes early to finish your paperwork in the waiting room. If I have a client before you, I'll come out to greet you at your scheduled time. Our first few sessions will be you giving me your history, telling me about what brought you to therapy, and getting to know each other. We will quickly jump into talking about your goals, what you'd like to get out of these sessions, and explore your patterns, relationships, boundaries, sense of self-worth, or anything else that comes up for you. I often use collage or other artistic mediums in my practice - but don't ket that scare you. You do not need any art experience (or talent) to benefit from the process of creative therapy. I like to send my clients out the door with some sort of intention or focus for the week, and we'll make sure your next appointment is scheduled, and off you go - feeling a little more aware and congruent than you did before.
How much do they cost? Each 50 minute session is $150, payable by check or cash. I do not take insurance, but I can provide a "super bill" to you, if your insurance company will reimburse you. Sessions in my office are usually scheduled for 50 minute sessions, once a week, but that changes depending on your needs, schedule, and progress.
What do I need to do to make an appointment? Go to "make an appointment" and find an opening in my calendar. You'll be asked to make an account, which will ask for your name, email, address and will track your bookings for you. Once you have logged in, you will see a menu on the right side with forms and directions for logging in/getting to your appointments. Print out the forms, fill them out, and email them back to me (or bring them to your first session). Once you've paid via PayPal (for in-person sessions, it is okay to bring cash or a check to your first appointment). I'll know you have confirmed your appointment time.
