Do you feel stuck? Does worry, fear, self-doubt or anxiety interfere with daily your life? Do you experience sadness, grief or depression that you can't seem to move beyond? If these issues prevent you from reaching your goals and having the life and relationships you want, together we can build the skills you need to regain control of your life. We will work together to develop goals and create a process to address your unique needs. If you are reading this, you are considering making changes in your life. Change is not easy. It is a learning process that takes commitment and hard work. I provide a safe and supportive environment where we can explore change and facilitate learning. We will work collaboratively to identify your needs, define your goals and then determine the best way to achieve them. My primary KAP treatment protocol involves a medical evaluation, 1 or 2 preparatory sessions, 12 dosing sessions and 8-12 integration sessions. Maintenance sessions are determined after your primary treatment is complete.
I am a licensed psychologist in the State of California (PSY24268) and a certified Ketamine-Assisted Psychotherapist. I provide treatment to adults of various cultural, ethnic, professional and personal backgrounds. My approach is integrative: I combine KAP with cognitive-behavioral and psychodynamic strategies to optimize results. I utilize empirically supported techniques and treatments to get results that work!. My treatment approach is based on your needs—I do not subscribe to a one-size-fits-all-approach. This allows us to work collaboratively to develop a program specific to your needs and to achieve your goals. In addition to my private practice I am the director of the Psychedelic Therapy Program at Roots Mental Wellness in Long Beach, CA. I am a former adjunct professor in the psychology doctoral program at Ryokan College and former Executive Vice President of California Mind Institute (CMI), a certified on-line training program for California Association of Alcoholism and Drug Abuse Counselors (CAADAC). I have previously been an instructor for the El Camino, Mira Costa and Riverside Community Colleges' Drug and Alcohol Counselor Training (CAADAC) programs.
I provide in-person and remote (video) individual KAP and remote only group KAP. Group KAP is limited to four participants maximum. I accept Aetna, Anthem Blue Cross, Blue Cross/Blue Shield of Massachusetts, Medicare, ILWU-PMA/Coastwise, United Healthcare, Oscar and Oxford Health insurances, which will generally cover, in-part or in whole, your medical evaluations, preparatory and integration sessions and the first hour of your dosing session, which are 2½ hours. I also offer a sliding scale for cash patients. For more information, please contact me for a brief phone consultation 424-271-2933.
