Well done - You have taken the first step to achieving the life you want by exploring BetterHelp!
As the therapeutic relationship between you and your therapist helps set you up for success, I encourage you to review several provider profiles before you select the one you think will be the best fit and meet your needs. Please keep in mind therapy should be a safe place where you can express your most hidden, raw thoughts and feelings and know you will not be judged. It should have elements of empathy, compassion, respect and challenges you to grow.
In my 16+ years as a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT) in Southern California, I have helped individuals, couples and families work through a myriad of issues including but not limited to: anxiety, depression, self-image, relationships, parenting, grief/loss, stress management, suicide prevention and intervention. I have an eclectic approach I call, "WW"- Whatever Works because each client is unique and so, a one-size fits all approach doesn't work. Cultural factors, stages of life, gender, learning and communication styles as well as personality need to be taken into consideration when identify the best approach (client centered, cognitive behavioral, solution-focused, motivational interviewing etc.).
Additional areas of focus: Young Adult Issues
Clinical approaches: Client-Centered Therapy, Mindfulness Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Solution-Focused Therapy
