Annalise Oatman is a licensed clinical social worker and author in Los Angeles, California. She specializes in childhood and specific incident trauma, depression, and creative block, especially in female-identified writers and creators.
Annalise's practice, Deeper Well Therapy, offers integrative, intuitive, depth-informed therapy designed to provide healing at a deep level and lasting change, utilizing approaches such as EMDR therapy and Jungian-informed dreamwork.
Annalise recently became the bestselling author of her first book, Heal Your Witch Wound, about ways to overcome the unique challenges women face in living to their full creative and intuitive potential and stepping into their power. The book offers several somatic, depth-informed, journal-based and unabashedly magickal strategies for overcoming fear and expressing what we feel most deeply called to express in our lives.
Annalise completed an Oxbridge Masters in Philosophy at Trinity College Dublin in 2010 and graduated from USC's Masters in Social Work program in 2015 on the Dean's List, having one of her essays published as a chapter in an Oxford University Press textbook, Women's Journey to Empowerment in the 21st Century: A Transnational Feminist Analysis of Women's Lives in Modern Times. In 2019, she became trained in EMDR, currently considered the gold standard of trauma therapies, and she is currently in the midst of the lengthy process of preparing to train as a Jungian psychoanalyst, and has attended numerous trainings at the Jung Institute. She has been working closely with traumatized populations since 2013 in a variety of settings.
Psychedelic-Assisted Psychotherapy - I have undertaken a year-long course of study at Integrative Psychiatry Institute in ketamine-, MDMA-, and psilocybin-assisted therapy, and I have also experientially studied plant medicine ceremony with Shipibo medicine people in Peru, and I am very honored to bring ketamine-assisted psychotherapy to anyone wanting to finally heal from depression or trauma, and even to couple's looking for ways to overcome relational trauma and deepen their intimacy.

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:
Frequency of sessions this provider offers to see clients once you are an established client.
I strongly encourage you to call the member services number on the back of your insurance card to find out if you have out of network benefits. If you do, your plan might cover between 40-80% of your session fee, so you would end up paying only about $50-$100/session! I partner with an out of network therapy concierge makes it as easy as possible for you to only pay your copays and not even have to worry about mailing a "superbill" (a document I would provide) and then waiting for reimbursement. I'd be happy to explain how that works during our free Intro call!
I am not accepting CenCal insurance at this time.
