Professional statement

Andrea Guttman is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist located in San Diego, CA. Andrea supports youth, young adults, and adults through mental health challenges, specializing in women’s maternal mental health. Many of Andrea’s clients are mothers and parents who seek a place to talk openly about their experiences, processing through the challenges that arise with caregiving and raising children, particularly for those struggling with burnout, anxiety, and self-worth or who engage in perfectionism. Andrea also works with clients who are experiencing grief/loss, depression, infertility, and life transitions.

Andrea’s approach to therapy centers around reclaiming a sense of self, which may have been lost with the pressures of parenthood, work, family life, or relationships. Clients benefit from mindfulness practices led by Andrea, as well as strengths-based, solution-focused, and narrative therapy. Andrea takes a holistic and client-centered approach allowing for collaboration and the honoring of client's inner wisdom brought into the therapeutic process. She shows clients that they aren’t alone in their struggles and that they have her full support behind them as they face challenges. As a mother, Andrea brings her personal experience to further connect with her clients and provide them with compassion.

Andrea earned a Master’s degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from San Diego State University. She previously worked in the school system setting and has over 15 years of experience supporting youth and their families.

Therapist's note

If you have a PPO insurance plan, I am considered an out-of-network provider and can provide you with a monthly Super Bill statement detailed with payment records and special codes for the type of service provided. This can be submitted to request reimbursement from your insurance company and several insurance companies cover these services as out-of-network providers.

I also work with Mentaya, a platform that helps clients get money back on out-of-network therapy sessions. If you have out-of-network benefits, Mentaya will file claims and handle the insurance paperwork to ensure you get reimbursed.

Note: Mentaya's goal is to save you time and money. It's completely optional, and as your therapist, I do not benefit in any way from your participation.

Additionally, therapy is a covered service when using a Health Savings Account (HSA) or Flexible Savings Account (FSA) which is pre-taxed income and can reduce the overall cost of therapy.
