Some days it seems like high stress and anxiety are becoming your new normal. Even your relationships are suffering. In your gut, you know it’s time to take some positive action.
And with this achievement came long hours and hard work. You buried yourself in your work and you rarely came up for air. Your emotions had to take a back seat because they were a distraction from reaching your goals. In fact, you never really took time to focus on yourself because you were too caught up in the grind.
Yet, somewhere along the way, you realized you were burning out. You started feeling exhausted and cynical about the direction of your career and its impact on your personal life. You’re recognizing that the amount of pressure you now face is more than you were prepared for. You feel like you’re lacking some tools to handle the people in your life and the situations that keep coming up. You know that you have some things to work on in order to have the personal and professional lives you really want for yourself.
So here you are, your personality and your relationships are being held hostage by stress and you’re afraid you’re never going to break free.
A lot of the time you feel stuck and you’re not sure what your next steps are. Sometimes it seems like every day is a repeat of the last. You’re frustrated that things are so much harder than they should be.
That’s not to say your work and life were always in balance. There were extended periods in which you’ve overworked in order to meet a deadline or complete a project. But you never thought you’d be so on edge. What you didn’t expect was how you could feel like you’re about to implode at any moment. You never predicted you’d be so pessimistic, feeling like you’re not yourself anymore, and not feeling the confidence you expected to feel. You had no idea your stress would last this long and that your work and personal relationships would have so much tension. And you certainly didn’t expect your drive to achieve to keep you from feeling happy, successful, and fulfilled in your relationships.
Individual therapy (a.k.a counseling) will help you reduce your stress and improve your relationships, so that you can confidently begin designing your new normal. You and I will meet together weekly for 50 minutes and you will begin to create the changes that are most important to you.
WEEK ONE: Intake: During this initial session, we define the counseling relationship and discuss the details of informed consent and confidentiality. I gather information about you, your family members, and your biological, psychological, and social history and how this is impacting your current situation. We will have a basic understanding of what you’re going through now and what’s most important and urgent to focus on. We will also discuss the goals you have going forward, and the steps we will take to reach them. You’ll also walk away with some tips to begin using immediately.
WEEK TWO and Beyond: Individual Therapy Together, in each subsequent session, I will use evidence-based psychotherapy models to address your current emotional and cognitive states, what you have worked on since the previous meeting, and how they’re affecting your life personally, socially, and at your work. This typically includes Gestalt Therapy, Mindfulness-Based Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, effective communication skills, Positive Psychology, self-soothing methods, and other needed tools to treat the struggles you are experiencing.
As your therapist, I keep in mind your overall goals for therapy and make sure that what we’re working on and where we’re going together lead us toward those goals.
CLOSING: 1-2 Final Sessions In our final sessions, we will review your goals to ensure you are satisfied with your counseling experience and that our work together has met your expectations. We will also outline a plan going forward so that you are able to retain what we have worked on together and implement all you have learned in therapy.

WebPsych offers virtual (online) therapy in order to bring the highest quality services to busy people. In addition to being the most modern, practical, and convenient delivery of therapy, studies show that it’s often more effective than therapy in person. Increasingly, it’s less sustainable to stop the flow of your day to get yourself ready for a session, drive through congested Los Angeles traffic, find parking, wait for the session time, and then come out of a session to do it again on the way back to your home or office. Online therapy allows you to stay in your personal space, without all the extra steps. You can calmly gather your thoughts before sessions, and instead of getting stuck in heavy traffic afterward, you can think about and integrate what you learned. This thought and memory integration is key to successful and efficient change. Further, the therapy is just as in-depth, action-oriented, and leads to the same goals and achievements as therapy in person. Studies are also showing that the results of online therapy are longer lasting and more satisfying.
When is virtual therapy not appropriate? There are some situations in which virtual therapy is not considered appropriate. Certain types of mental illnesses and serious mental disorders, such as major depression, suicidal thinking, and domestic violence are only appropriate for in-person therapy.
