About

What services does your practice offer?

The services at California Women’s Therapy include psychotherapy, life coaching, and couples counseling. They are passionate about working with women in their twenties, thirties, and above, especially through major life transitions and processing through women’s issues. Without being afraid to address social injustices and discuss the role of identity in daily interactions, each therapist creates a safe, comfortable atmosphere for a client to feel comfortable sharing thoughts, feelings, ideas, and desires.

The therapists at California Women’s Therapy utilize evidence-based therapies such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), mindfulness-based therapies, psychodynamic approaches, and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), to name a few. Their goal is to build empowerment, self-love, and give clients a space to talk about what it means to be a woman.

What are your practice's specialties?

With so many experienced therapists on the team, California Women’s Therapy offers a wide range of specialized therapies. While some therapists have training in post-partum and maternal issues, others offer support to problem solve, organize, and make major life decisions. Couples counseling is also available at California Women’s Therapy, offering clients the chance to build intimacy with their partners, grow trust, or work through issues with infidelity, passion, or sex.

Why should I choose your practice?

California Women’s Therapy is a large group practice with over 11 therapists offering sessions - not only does this mean that there is greater availability and shorter waitlists than smaller practices, but it also offers you a diverse range of therapy types, styles, and approaches. Because this practice is an online practice, all sessions are accessible via computer, phone, or tablet for easy integration into your daily life. The therapists at California Women’s Therapy understand that women’s lives are filled with roles - mother, friend, worker, partner - and they aim to make therapy not only easy to access but attuned to the specific needs of women. Their dedication to empowering women and boosting mental health is a passion for each member of the team, all of whom are ready to support you as you begin your therapy journey.

If you choose to work with one of our providers, you will complete a credit card authorization form that is billed immediately following each session.
