Many adults struggle with unsatisfying lives. Many of us are exhausted, frustrated, anxious, and depressed. These mental health challenges manifest in malcontent jobs, difficulties with intimacy, people pleasing, self doubt, or lack of purpose. Amaia helps individuals, couples, and polycules gain a better understanding of what is causing the pain and the steps required to live a well lived life. Many clients seek a comforting space to work through challenges like work stress, relationship conflicts, or grief after loss.
Amaia supports clients as they work towards their life goals by providing them empathetic insight and perspective. She practices a couples therapy modality called the Gottman Method, which helps couples to deepen their emotional bond with each other and learn research based communication skills. She also works from a transpersonal view point to help clients engage with their spirituality as a way of furthering their meaning and purpose in life.

This provider can support you in getting reimbursement from your insurance company if you are seeking out-of-network reimbursement. Here are the out-of-network billing options they provide:
Keep in mind that plans do have out-of-network reimbursement. A Superbill will be given to you after each session so that you can submit to your insurance plan for a reimbursement. I also have spots that I reserve for people who cannot afford my full rate. Call to see if those are open. You are worth the investment!
