I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in the state of California.

I have over 17 years of experience working with a diverse population of families in crisis and traumatic situations and youth ages 12 -19. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, and life challenges. I have also helped many people who have experienced trauma or emotional abuse. My counseling style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion. I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. I believe in meeting everyone where they're at within their own unique set of experiences and providing a safe non-judgmental space to work on self healing. I encourage clients to find joy in life by not sweating the small stuff and find something each and every day that puts a smile on their face. My approach to counseling combines cognitive-behavioral and solution focused therapy along with motivational interviewing. Since every individual is unique I tailor dialog and treatment plans to meet specific needs. It takes courage to seek a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you. I look forward to working with you!

I am a licensed Marriage Family Therapist in California. I have a passion for helping people live better lives and find more of what they want in life. With over 30 years of professional work experience, I have worked with people from many cultures, races, belief systems, lifestyles, and experiences and have been able to build an effective relationship with all of them. I have experience in helping clients with depression, stress, anxiety, trauma, abuse, communication issues, relationship issues, parenting issues, motivation, self esteem, confidence, and many more issues. There are times in life when we need an outside perspective to get back on track, improve functioning, or fix something that isn’t working well. We take care of our cars, homes, and finances; our mental health is no different, in fact, it is the "operating system" upon which the rest of our lives operate. If you are at a point where you need help making something better, let's work on it together.

How does the cost of in-person counseling with a therapist compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Isleton 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 Isleton due to a higher cost of living.

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

One of the potentially rewarding aspects of working with a Isleton 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.

Isleton therapists 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 Isleton 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 Isleton 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 psychotherapist.

With a lot of people in CA, therapists may be booked out with clients.

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

Before seeing your Isleton 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 while offering mental health services. The first session will often serve as an intake to get to know you as a person and learn why you're attending therapy in Isleton.

Should I find a therapist or psychologist for therapy 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 from a therapist. A Isleton 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 with a Isleton counselor 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 that a counselor can help with.

Is mental health care and therapy with a therapist worth it?

Therapy with a licensed counselor 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 therapist 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 Isleton, 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.

Isleton 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 during telehealth appointments?

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.
