If you have recently had a baby and have been feeling depressed or more frustrated than usual, you may have a condition called postpartum depression (PPD). This can be a dangerous illness that may cause severe symptoms like self-harm and suicide, so you need to get help quickly if you have any symptoms. There are many dedicated psychiatrists in Dinuba who can diagnose and treat PPD. 

Of the 23,000 people who live in Dinuba, about half of them have children and PPD can strike anyone without warning so you have to make sure to get treated if you even think you may have PPD. Talking to one of the psychiatrists in Dinuba can help you figure out if you need help.

My approach is friendly, relaxed, and motivational. Along with providing therapy for relationship complications and mental disorders, I am also a youth soccer coach where patience, understanding, and teamwork are must haves. I have worked with several folks with various diagnosis and have found success by applying a Cognitive Behavioral approach or at times a Rational Emotive Behavioral approach. Another strength of mine is trauma processing, where I apply Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR). I am light hearted and work hard to ensure good quality sessions, while maxing out the abilities of the folks who see me. I currently hold a Masters Degree in Marriage and Family Therapy and undergraduate studies in Social Science. My experience ranges from crisis interventions, to dealing with critical diagnosis such as Schizophrenia, and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), to working with sleep disturbances and anxiety disorders.

I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist with seven years experience providing psychotherapy at a community mental health agency. I worked with diverse populations in Orange County and Long Beach, proving individual, group, and family psychotherapy. As a humanistic therapist, I maintain a positive approach to psychotherapy by focusing on strengths and positive attributes. I assist my clients with developing a stronger, healthier sense of self, and with making rational choices towards achieving their maximum potential. My hope is to provide a safe and supportive therapeutic environment, which is vital in helping clients overcome mental health issues and various problems in their lives. My foundation is in humanistic therapy; however, I do use interventions and techniques from other therapies (e.g., psychodynamic, cognitive behavioral therapy) when appropriate. I graduated from the University of California, San Diego with Bachelor's degrees in psychology and political science. I graduated from Azusa Pacific University with a Master's degree in Clinical Psychology with an emphasis in Marriage and Family Therapy.

I work with a variety of psychological issues, but have had most of my experience working with trauma, traumatic brain injury, anxiety, depression, and men’s issues in general. My clients and I identify the scope of the problem we’re working on and then focus on solutions to the problem. I see therapy as a serious pursuit and one which opens the door, with a great deal of self-understanding, to a fulfilling and meaningful life. I use mostly talk therapy along with supplementary exercises and experiences to achieve our therapeutic goals.

As a licensed marriage and family therapist, I bring a wealth of experience and expertise to my practice, having worked with diverse populations for nearly a decade. Throughout my career, I have had the privilege of providing therapy and support to individuals facing a wide range of challenges, including homelessness, re-entry (formerly incarcerated individuals), and serious mental illness (SMI). Over the last 3+ years, I have expanded my focus to work closely with first responders and essential employees, including nurses, doctors, firefighters, and police officers. This unique experience has given me profound insights into the pressures and demands faced by those who selflessly serve our communities. Witnessing firsthand the sacrifices and emotional toll endured by essential employees, I am committed to providing counseling services tailored to their unique needs and experiences. My therapeutic approach is grounded in person-centered therapy, emphasizing the importance of creating a safe and non-judgmental space for clients. By fostering a collaborative and empowering environment, I strive to help individuals explore their strengths, find inner resilience, and work towards personal growth and healing. In addition to person-centered therapy, I incorporate mindfulness-based stress reduction techniques into my practice. Mindfulness offers essential tools for managing stress, anxiety, and depression, allowing clients to develop present-moment awareness and self-compassion. With training in cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) skills, I assist clients in identifying and challenging negative thought patterns and behaviors. CBT has proven effective in addressing a variety of issues, such as anxiety, depression, and trauma-related symptoms. Drawing from my expertise in drug and alcohol counseling, I provide comprehensive support to individuals struggling with substance use disorders. I approach this work from a harm reduction perspective, meeting clients where they are in their journey and promoting safety and positive change. My background includes extensive experience in treating anxiety, depression, substance use, and trauma. I believe in the resiliency of the human spirit and am dedicated to helping individuals overcome these challenges to lead fulfilling lives. Furthermore, I have valuable experience in crisis response, suicide education and prevention, and community outreach. These experiences have deepened my understanding of mental health challenges and the importance of early intervention and support. My commitment to cultural competence is integral to my practice. I strive to provide a therapeutic experience that respects and honors the unique backgrounds and experiences of each individual. As we continue to navigate the complexities of life, especially during the pandemic and beyond, I am here to provide compassionate and effective counseling support. Whether you are seeking help for anxiety, depression, substance use, trauma, or any other challenges, I am dedicated to supporting your healing and growth. Please feel free to reach out to me to schedule an appointment or discuss any questions you may have. I look forward to working with you on your journey towards improved mental health and well-being.

It is also important to understand that mental health professionals in the United States are accredited to provide care, helping individuals and couples, with a variety of licenses. These include licensed marriage and family therapist (LMFT), licensed clinical social worker (LCSW), and clinical psychologist or doctor of psychology (PsyD). Regardless of their licensure, they are trained to treat individuals and couples counseling, and sometimes children, in any type of therapy. Find a therapist under any of these distinctions and know that the sessions they offer can provide a safe place to heal.

Mental health professionals working through their own in- person therapy practice in Dinuba or online may assist clients in improving healthy relationships, communication skills, working through life transitions, managing a mood disorder, improving coping skills, or change in negative thinking patterns.

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

Some other commonly asked questions on therapy with a licensed counselor and BetterHelp serving the Dinuba area can be found below:

How does the cost of in-person counseling compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Dinuba therapist?

The average price of an in-person therapy session in the US is $100 to $200 per hour. These prices may be higher in Dinuba due to a higher cost of living. The price also depends on the type of provider you are looking for. See the following average prices for various mental health providers without insurance:

  • Counseling with a psychiatrist: $150-$500
  • Counseling with therapists: $100-300
  • Therapy with a psychologist: $100

While many psychologists in Dinuba may not take health insurance, some in the state of California may work on a sliding scale, meaning they'll factor in your income and charge what you can afford per session. With BetterHelp or clinicians throughout the state of California you can expect significantly more affordable options, with sessions ranging from $65 to $100 per week (billed every four weeks).

How is a licensed therapist on this online therapy platform verified?

Therapists in Dinuba, California working on BetterHelp are licensed, trained, experienced, and accredited as a doctor of psychology (PhD / PsyD), licensed marriage and family therapists (LMFT), licensed clinical social worker (LCSW / LICSW), or licensed professional counselors (LPC). All of these psychology clinicians have a Masters Degree or a Doctorate Degree in their field of psychology sciences, and follow the APA Code of Ethics. They have been qualified and certified by their state's professional board after successfully completing the necessary education, exams, training and practice with a patient, and extensive experience in a healthcare clinic or treatment centers, in order to become a mental health provider. While their lived experience, expertise, careers, and background vary, they all possess at least 3 years and 1,000 hours of hands-on experience with adult and sometimes teen patients, and have the necessary therapist credentials to provide a safe space for long lasting emotional healing in therapy. 

Please note BetterHelp does not offer or provide care from psychiatrists to prescribe a drug as treatment, or perform psychological assessments.

How does working with a counselor in BetterHelp online therapy sessions work?

BetterHelp clinicians treat clients online across the United States (individuals and couples) through life transitions, inner child exploration, long term depression or anxiety, and more. An online mental health professional, including the therapists in Dinuba above, can work with young adults, children, adolescents, and adults virtually as an accredited licensed clinical social worker (LCSW) or licensed marriage and family therapist (LMFT). You do not have to commute to a an office as a psychotherapy client.

Through BetterHelp therapy, you can partake in video, phone, or live chat therapy sessions with your licensed therapist. You can work through various symptoms, use the in app journaling feature, and receive worksheets. You'll also find support groups or group therapy lead by a therapist in Dinuba helping individuals on topics including managing life transitions, symptoms affecting sexual health, behavioral health, coping skills for anxiety or depression, trauma, stress, marriage counseling, and more. 

What mental health issues can psychotherapy address?

BetterHelp's verified Dinuba therapists specialize and have clinical experience in a wide range of mental health issues and modalities, helping clients to feel better and improve their lives every day. See below for examples.

Specialties on BetterHelp include:

You may also be struggling with relationship problems that could be addressed in couples therapy or with a sex therapist. In that case, you may choose to work with one of BetterHelp's experienced cognitive-behavioral therapists or licensed marriage family therapists (LMFT) who work with clients in relationships. You can also try a Dinuba therapy provider through BetterHelp's sister platform, ReGain, which is dedicated to couples and spouses worldwide. 

How do I know if online counseling is right for my family?

One of the potentially rewarding aspects of working with a therapist is the validation and active listening they can provide. Your friends and loved ones may also be available to listen, but you may feel that they may lack the skills to provide objective guidance. Counselors are trained to respond to various concerns, symptoms, and mental health conditions.

A psychologist in your city can support you toward a healthier emotional state, regardless of your mental health, life concerns, or healing needs. While supporting individuals in developing healthier habits, another good benefit of therapy is having an understanding, safe space with a non-judgmental party who can support you through challenging experiences.

Many people have sensitive topics that they may feel ashamed to discuss with their friends or partner. A Dinuba therapist can help you confront these concerns and open up through unique methods of support. There are also many types of therapy, such as art therapy, where you may find you can express yourself through creativity instead of words.

With a lot of people in CA, providers may be booked out with clients. Through the list of profiles above and others within BetterHelp's team, you may be able to find a psychologist within 24 to 48 hours. If you're searching to find a a nearby psychotherapist close to 93618 or the surrounding zip codes, consider others available through the BetterHelp site. No matter if you are seeking help in your area or beyond, online therapy can be a great option.

How should I prepare for my first therapy session with a Dinuba counselor?

Before seeing your therapist, prep for your session by reading to understand the therapy process. You might write a list of questions you want to ask your psychotherapist, any emotional pain you may feel, and the ways in which you hope to improve. When you attend your session, let them know if you have any concerns about therapy or feel unsure about what to talk about. They may help guide you with open-ended therapeutic questions. The first session will often serve as an intake to get to know you as a person and learn why you're attending therapy.

Should I find a therapist or psychologist if I feel fine? 

Some simply don't feel the need to see a psychologist. However, some people may avoid attending therapy due to stigma or preconceived notions of what therapy entails. Although psychologists often support people with mental health conditions, you do not need a diagnosis or condition to attend therapy. You can discuss grief, relationship concerns, stress, or life changes and ask for general feedback and advice. A Dinuba licensed clinical social worker may help you gain power over your life and emotions while you navigate day-to-day experiences.

Gaining a new perspective on yourself through various therapies might allow you to improve your self-esteem, work through relationships, and gain a better sense of your mental health goals. The success you may find through therapy can be dependent on your process.

People may also attend therapy for specific motives, such as bullying, an autism diagnosis, a desire to learn mindfulness meditation, personality concerns, trouble with office workers, specific phobias, and many other principles.

Is mental health care and therapy worth it? 

Therapy is effective and has the power to change individuals' lives. Each client is at a different stage of their emotional healing journey in life, as each human can be unique in their personality, expression, skills, and goals. A psychologist can target various symptoms, experiences, and personalities to help you feel your best and put you on the path to healing. Unlike advice from a friend, family, or non-professional, a mental health professional has an understanding of various disorders like ADHD and depression with many hours of experience in treating adults in their practice. For this reason, seeing an evidence based psychologist in Dinuba, California can be worth it. Over 41 million adults in the US attend therapy services each year, showing it's a popular option and is proven to be effective.

Dinuba has many clinicians who practice person or client-centered individual therapy in-person and through online therapy to assist clients in their healing journey. If you opt into online therapy, you might also be able to meet with providers all over the United States and change therapists easily at any time. Many people struggling with anxiety and depression, substance abuse, body image issues, and more find therapists that are a good fit for them, feel supported, and gain further insight into their lives through internet-based therapy.

Do therapists judge you in therapy sessions?

The boundaries between you and a therapist are in place to help you and them regarding ethical concerns. Mental health professionals are held by ethical standards through the American Psychological Association (APA) and are not allowed to judge or harm their clients. If you are concerned about sharing details about yourself, feel free to withhold personal information. Their job in the therapeutic relationship is to create a safe place, help you gain a deeper understanding of your mental health, and support you. You might consider changing counselors if you don't feel safe or respected.
