Therapists In-Network with Anthem Blue Cross in Los Angeles

Anthem Blue Cross is a common health insurance in Los Angeles, and individuals who have Anthem Blue Cross may wish to find therapists who are in-network with their health insurance.

When you see a therapist who is in-network with Anthem Blue Cross, each session you’ll pay only a copay, which typically ranges from $0-$75/session.

Perhaps I can help. I provide a safe place for you to be yourself and to talk about what's on your mind. Perhaps you are seeking therapy for something specific--for example, because you may feel blocked in making a move or a change. Perhaps you'd like to learn more about yourself. In expressing your feelings and your concerns, perhaps we can discover some past connections, feelings or methods of coping which may not be serving you. Talking about what's on your mind can lead to more understanding. Perhaps I can help you in taking a journey together, connecting some dots and, perhaps, helping you to feel more free and more you.

Here you are...Starting the therapy journey, looking for the right therapist at a time when you are probably most vulnerable and in despair.

With my warm, non-judgmental and understanding approach I will help you on your journey to understand the difficulties you are facing. My specialties include mood disorders, grief, trauma and relationship issues. I will teach you basic cognitive behavioral techniques to address dysfunctional thought patterns and will delve deeper with you to seek to understand the underlying root causes and re-appearing patterns.

I work from an integrative perspective and rely on a broad range of techniques, including cognitive-behavioral, psychodynamic, mindfulness-based, systemic and humanistic interventions. My primary orientation and lens through which I conceptualize is Object-Relations Theory. I am an experienced psychologist with extensive training and multiple certifications.
