I've been seeing Maida for a couple months now and she's been immensely helpful along my mental health journey. She gives me lots of resources to help reroute my thinking and come up with healthy coping mechanisms and she asks me questions that make me go HMM? — something that I value in a therapist. I feel like Maida really understands my unique issues and circumstances and tailors her advice accordingly.

More about me
Years in Practice: 6
I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in California (LMFT) and I have been working in the counseling field since 2017. I have experience conducting individual and group therapy, in-office and both residential and outpatient settings with clients presenting with depression, anxiety, mood disorders, relationship and parenting issues, teen concerns, and a wide range of challenges including grief/loss, insomnia, addiction, trauma, abuse, bipolar, as well as personal growth, adjustment issues, and crisis.
In my work with clients, I use some leading psychological modalities, such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) Internal Family Systems (IFS), and Solution-Focused Therapy, and Motivational Interviewing (MI). I am enthusiastic, energetic, self-motivated, compassionate, and patient. I am a true believer that a good clinician should possess adequate knowledge relating to all areas in the field and should have good interpersonal skills. Also, one should have a stable mindset and should be a levelheaded personality, which will help in providing correct counseling. Each individual requires special attention with not just patience but a sense of understanding and compassion.
About online counseling
Online counseling allows you to receive care from an online mental health practitioner via phone, video chat, or instant messaging. It is convenient for those who may have trouble getting to or would prefer not to have in-person therapy appointments. Ranging from $60 to $90 per week, online counseling is generally more affordable than in-person counseling. A study by researchers at University of California, Berkeley found that online counseling can be just as effective as face-to-face therapy while being more convenient, affordable, and accessible.
