Hi! We are OPEN!

Telehealth Update:

Important Updates: 

We understand that online sessions do not have the same feel as an in-person session and we hope to resume them as quickly as possible.

However, starting Monday 3/16/2020 and until further notice we will only offer virtual Telehealth sessions as we feel it's the most responsible choice to do our part to stop the spread of the virus.


These precautions are meant to allow us to responsibly treat you with safety of all of our clients, our community, and our own team in mind. There is a lot of information out there about the virus. I recommend consuming material from reputable sources and subject-matter-experts rather than the media at large. Please login into your patient portal and complete the "Informed Consent for Telehealth" via esignature. This allows us to continue your care without interruption. We will still be billing insurance and/or providing superbills as normally conducted for all sessions. There are federal mandates for covering Telehealth by all insurance at this time. 


Prior to your appointment times, you will get an email with a link to come to my virtual waiting room at the time of your appointment and your therapists will log on at your appointment time to conduct your session.You will need an internet connection and device with a camera to participate. We recommend a quiet and secure place in which you can talk with privacy when logging in from home. We are also able to offer you family sessions at this stressful time! 

Are you worried about your Child or Teen? 

Wondering if a new behavior is normal? 

Concerned about mood?

Appear out of control or excessively angry?

Negative or worsening attitude? 

Isolating often in their room?

Sick of wondering "what's wrong?" and not getting answers?

Notice a sudden drop in grades, changes in friends or motivation?

We are here to help! We have a talented team of counselors who specialize in working with children and teens and help your family. We have evenings and weekend hours for your scheduling needs and you are in the right place for treatment in San Diego.

Get in touch and we will contact you within 24 hours:

Unhappy with current treatment?

Are you unhappy with your child or teen current counselor or therapist?

Does your child or teen HATE counseling?

Have you been going to the same counselor without results?

Keep looking until you find the right fit! We are skills and trained to work with children and teens and find we can help many families who have not had success with other clinicians. 

If you answered "YES!" to any of the above questions, give us a call and we are confident we can help. 

Now offering telehealth in all locations! 

When we can get back into the offices, here is where you'll us!
