I have a practice at 555 Soquel Ave Ste 260 in Santa Cruz, California. I offer in-person and online services.
Those who work with me have one-on-one sessions that last approximately 75 minutes every other week (sometimes a little longer as we are not focused on the clock but on completing our session goal). The duration of the session and time between sessions is intentional. In each session, we spend the time to understand the core beliefs and experiences behind behaviors and symptoms, make shifts in those beliefs, and practice the change in different scenarios. Then my clients are given enough time between sessions to continue practicing and making the changes in their everyday lives. I am a strong advocate of making sure that each session includes (1) knowledge and understanding of cause and (2) creation of lasting change.
Clients come for an average of two sessions for phobias, six for trauma, ten to twelve sessions for high blood pressure, IBS, and cancer, and 24 sessions for multiple sclerosis. The number of sessions depends on the number of symptoms, intensity and amount of psycho-social factors involved, and duration of the issue.
The cost is $165 per session or $450 for a package of three sessions.
Discounts are available for minors and those on disability.
