According to the National Alliance on Mental Illness, at least 1 in 5 adult Americans experience a mental illness, with nearly 10 million living with a severe mental illness. Approximately 21.5 million Americans face a substance use disorder every year. Millions more report suffering from low self-esteem.
As difficult as these challenges are, and as distant as recovery may seem, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) has proven effective for issues like these and a multitude of others. As an article published in the journal Cognitive Therapy and Research says: “The evidence-base of CBT is very strong.” (1)
CBT has proven results for insomnia, chronic pain, anger issues, anxiety disorders, bulimia, psychosomatic disorders, and general stress.
So if these describe you…
– You struggle with anxiety or depression
– You feel angry and experience trouble controlling your behavior
– You’d like expert help to overcome an addiction
– A restful, sleep filled night sounds like a God-send
– Low self esteem is undermining your happiness
– Chronic pain is negatively impacting your mental health
– You’d love to clear away destructive thoughts
– You wish to create a less stressed and better managed life
Then cognitive behavioral therapy may be the ideal treatment approach for you.
CBT is a powerful therapeutic approach that looks at your current thoughts and the behaviors they trigger. It hones in on your automated assumptions and how these manifest when you experience frustration or stress.
In CBT we identify the unhelpful thoughts that inform your feelings, decisions, and actions, and challenge these in a safe and non-judgmental way. What do you think about “X?” Is this thought accurate? What is the likely reality in situation “Y?” Are your thoughts counterproductive? What would be a more plausible explanation?
CBT provides you with greater understanding of your internal dialogue, helping you to train different thinking patterns and beliefs to better reflect both the reality around you and a more empathetic self-image. We aim to ease your suffering, improve your problems, and help you live a healthier, happier life.

Where are you located?
My offices are located in Newport Beach & Corona in California, however all my sessions telehealth only. I do not offer any in-person sessions. For online tele-health services, I serve California, New Jersey & internationally. Whether you are stuck at work for a crucial deadline or juggling a million doctor’s appointments all that is required to get to my office is a reliable internet connection.
Virtual therapy can be a phenomenal way to make time and space for support, self-exploration, understanding, and growth. It has been shown to have similar outcomes, in terms of patient satisfaction and self-reported growth, as in-person treatment. With that being said, online therapy is not for everyone. Please consult first to decide.
Good Faith Estimate
Under Section 2799B-6 of the Public Health Service Act, health care providers are required to inform individuals who are not enrolled in a plan or coverage or a Federal health care program, or not seeking to file a claim with their plan or coverage both orally and in writing of their ability, upon request or at the time of scheduling health care items and services, to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” of expected charges.
You have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much your medical care will cost.
Under the law, health care providers need to give clients who don’t have insurance or who are choosing not to use insurance an estimate of the bill for medical items and services.
- You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency items or services. This includes related costs like medical tests, prescription drugs, equipment, and hospital fees.
- Make sure your health care provider gives you a Good Faith Estimate in writing at least 1 business day before your medical service or item. You can also ask your health care provider, and any other provider you choose, for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule an item or service.
- If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your Good Faith Estimate, you can dispute the bill.
- Make sure to save a copy or picture of your Good Faith Estimate. For questions or more information about your right to a Good Faith Estimate, visit www.cms.gov/nosurprises
