Psychotherapy for ADHD | Burnout | Psychedelia | LGBTQ+
I am a registered associate marriage & family psychotherapist supervised by licensed clinicians. I provide "general" psychotherapy, covering an array of skills and techniques, informed by principles found in a variety of orientations, but I do not specialize in any one particular method, nor do I provide psychological testing services (i.e. for ADHD or Autism Spectrum).
This form of psychotherapy is more explorative and supportive than directive. And my personal psychotherapist style is more insight-oriented than behavioral.
I am a general psychotherapist, with a special focus on ADHD, relationship/codependency recovery, LGBTQ identity issues, and work/professional burnout. I'm also a subject matter expert in psychedelic integration and preparation work.
The type of psychotherapy provided here is likely not suitable for those undergoing current crisis involving imminent self-harm or those who may require on-going medical (psychiatric) stabilizing, active or pending criminal or civil court cases, or those active recurring psychoses or hallucinations. In these circumstances, it is possible that online psychotherapy does not provide the level of support and care that you may need to sustain your well-being.
It's my duty as a psychotherapist to ensure you're getting the most appropriate (with fully informed consent) support, even if this means referring you to other professionals.
All of the paperwork and documents are digital and privately secured in a portal only you can access. All the paperwork, consent forms, and payment info will be stored there, in compliance with HIPAA regulations. Psychotherapists are required to comply with the same privacy regulations governing all other health service providers.
The first few sessions are spent mostly gathering background information, and connecting the relevant dots of whats going on for you to that historical bio. We'll also determine and confirm an appropriate schedule.
Once you've determined your therapeutic goals met, or therapy has otherwise reached a satisfactory level such that you wish to end therapy, we will begin this process. We will recap, review, re-visit important themes, and ensure you're feeling ready to move on.
Sessions are generally held once (1x) weekly, at least to begin with, so we can appropriately develop goals and understanding about what brings you here.
Depending on your needs, goals, and general trajectory, we can collaborate on a schedule more fitting to you as time goes on.
As of June 2022, I am still seeing all my clients online. Thus, you only need to primarily reside in California (and have functioning internet and privacy) for us to work together. As a law, your psychotherapist must be licensed in the state you hold primary residence in.
Because I am not covered by health insurers, all costs are self-pay.
However, this frees us to arrange our own payment arrangement that can make your appointments more financially sustainable.
