LA Therapy Network - Long Beach

LA Therapy Network - Long Beach

I am the main therapist and the founder/director of LA Therapy Network, a group of private practice therapists who are committed to helping women, trauma survivors, and the LGBT community with their therapy needs. I am a Board Certified Expert in Traumatic Stress, an Adolescent Specialist and a Feminist Therapist. I have worked with the GLBTQI communities for over 20 years, have trained multiple community agencies in working with the community with special considerations in helping sexual/gender minority survivors. I have a special interest in rape/sexual abuse/assault & abuse issues, trauma and other victims of violent crimes.There are four other therapists who work with me in the LA, Long Beach and West LA/Santa Monica area. They focus on couples and family therapy, families with young children/parenting, survivors of childhood abuse and trauma, anxiety, depression, and personal growth issues.

HMO's / PPO's Accepted: We strongly discourage the use of insurance for psychotherapy services. I stopped accepting all insurance because they use it against you to permanently raise your premiums, deny you insurance in the future or to deny you appropriate services. It is not in your best interest. It is a serious problem and we no longer will work with insurance companies. We want to provide quality services and refuse to compromise the care we'll provide for you!
