Her private practice, Intention Health Psychology, is located in San Diego, CA and she offers telehealth services to individuals in the state of California.

Many of her clients have found her when a specific health behavior, like alcohol use or poor sleep, has negatively impacted their abilities to be the person they want to be.

She is particularly focused on the intersection between physical and mental health and offers a holistic approach to overall well-being.
Dr. Watrous' primary goal is to create a compassionate, non-judgmental space in which clients can do the work of therapy. She believes therapy is a collaborative and active process through which clients can achieve the goals they set for themselves.
