HOW LONG DOES EACH THERAPY SESSION TAKE?
A standard session is 55 minutes.
WHAT TECHNIQUES DO YOU USE?
I look at therapeutic interventions and modalities as tools in a toolbox. It's important to pick the right one for the right job. Depression and anxiety are suited toward cognitive behavioral therapy, while trauma is more suited toward narrative therapy and EMDR. Progressive muscle relaxation can be applied during moments of somatic tension. I consider the specific needs of the client when formulating the approach best for them.
DO YOU OFFER SLIDING SCALE RATES?
Yes! I offer a sliding scale based on the financial needs of the client. I can also offer a superbill to your insurance company requesting reimbursement, but cannot guarantee if the request will be fulfilled.
WHERE DO YOU HOLD SESSIONS? DO YOU OFFER TELEHEALTH OR VIRTUAL THERAPY?
I officer both in-person and virtual therapy! My office is located on 340 Soquel Avenue, Suite 203, Santa Cruz, CA, 95062. Distance therapy can be conducted over telephone or Zoom.
