Whenever possible, I recommend that individuals seek a therapist in their community with whom they can develop an in-person relationship. There is a quality to that relationship that cannot be captured through electronic media. That being said, I also understand that many individuals do not have access to such a relationship for a myriad of reasons and for these folks, accessing therapy via electronic media can be a perfect fit. In some cases, virtual therapy allows for flexibility or a feeling of anonymity that makes accessing therapy at all a possibility for some people.
Living and working in a small rural community myself, I understand the particular limitations and difficulties of small town life. If you live in a rural community with limited access to therapy or concerns about confidentiality when accessing therapy in your own community, then virtual therapy may be an option worth exploring. If you think this style of work would be a good fit for you, or you simply have further questions about it, please feel free to contact me for further discussion.
Please be advised that as a Marriage and Family Therapist licensed by the state of California, I am only able to work with individuals or couples who reside in California.
My Therapeutic Style:
My therapeutic style is interactive and client centered. I enjoy working collaboratively with individuals and couples to develop a course of therapy suited to each persons unique circumstances.
I have experience working with grief and loss, self-esteem and assertiveness, anger, depression, GSD issues, and the fall out from all forms of child abuse. I have also worked with individuals affected by substance abuse and with issues of migration and cross cultural adaptation. I will be happy to speak with you further about my work, answer any questions you may have about therapy, or simply help you find the right therapist for you. Good luck on your search and remember, it's your therapy, don't be afraid to ask a lot of questions.
Give me a call. I look forward to speaking with you.
