Information about Services
Therapy services are available for individuals, couples, and families via secure video chat. However, not all clients are recommended to use video chat as main method for receiving therapeutic services (more information). Therapy is LGBTQ affirmative, sex positive, and intercultural issues are considered. Individual sessions are typically 50 minutes; other time frames are also available for couples and families. I also have experience in providing therapy in Mandarin.
The foundation of the integrative framework with which I approach therapy is largely influenced by humanistic and existential models of therapy and systems theory. No individual or system is identical to each other, and as such, all contexts in your environment/systems are considered in our work together. The structure of therapy can differ from person to person so that for some, therapy can be brief and focused, while for others, therapy can be ongoing and exploratory. Naturally, how we work together will be openly discussed and decided according to what is most appropriate for your therapy goals.
Examples of evidenced-based therapy I utilize with clients/patients include: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT), Prolonged Exposure (PE), Eye-Movement Desensitization Reprocessing Therapy (EMDR), Emotional Focused Therapy (EFT), Interpersonal Neurobiology techniques (IPNB), and Unified Protocol (UP). The model of therapy used in our work will be determined after discussing the client/patient’s interests, complaints, and goals. Ultimately, I aim for shared decision making with the client/patient(s) so that therapy is a collaborative journey.
