Therapy Services

 

Individual Therapy: I provide client centered individual talk and art therapy for adults 18+.  Our focus in therapy will be on the areas where you want to grow and and reach your personal goals. Each session is designed specifically to you and how you learn best, whether that's talking things through, finding new tools to apply in your relationships and daily life, or creating imagery and connecting to your body to understand yourself more fully.  We will work together to find the style that fits you best.  Want to know more? Call me for a free 20 minute consultation at 213-316-6964.

Somatic Focusing Sessions: I offer somatic Focusing sessions outside of ongoing therapy to assist you in growing an ongoing connection and communication with your body. I generally suggest 3 consecutive sessions to start, but do offer a single session, and short-term or long-term ongoing sessions. For more information about Focusing please visit The International Focusing Institute's webpage.

WPATH Gender Affirming Surgery Letters: There are two styles of letters required for meeting the WPATH standards of care.

1. One type is a letter from your psychotherapist for ongoing therapy services.

     • For this type of letter the duration of therapy treatment may vary due to
       insurance or surgeon's requirements.  Typically 6 weeks of consecutive therapy
       sessions is the minimum requirement. 

2. The other type of letter is from a licensed mental health professional who has completed an assessment with you to determine your diagnosis and readiness for surgery.

    • Surgery readiness assessments vary from 1-3 sessions and require supporting
      documents from other providers to be shared. 

    • An assessment is valid for 12 months, reassessments after this time are
      typically are session.

    • Each assessment includes surgery readiness letter within two weeks of the
      assessment meeting.

Emotional Support Animal Letters: To qualify to have an emotional support animal you are required to be assessed by a licensed mental health professional and found to have a mental health disability.

    • Assessments of this type can typically be completed in one session, but may take up to three sessions depending on the disability.
