UC Davis Students
Yes, I Accept UC SHIP for Mental Health Treatment *
Serving UC Davis students, particularly those transitioning to adulthood, is a passion of mine. College is both an exciting time and one full of new challenges. Below, I have outlined some of the major mental health and relationship concerns that I routinely help people just like you to overcome. If the focus of support sought is mostly on matters unrelated to mental health, please be advised that these services are not covered by insurance (see note at bottom of this page). These might include: exploring and navigating polyamory and ethical non-monogamy, conscious monogamy, or kink/BDSM relationships.
Anxiety & Stress
Unlike high school, hardly anyone at gets straight A’s in undergrad programs at an academically rigorous university like UC Davis. Your friends may or may not tell you, but failing a course or barely passing some is more common than you might imagine.
When you get lower grades or even fail, you may experience shock and a sense of shame for not living up to parents’ expectations or your own. I’m here to help you manage anxiety and stress better and develop more of a growth-mindset when facing academic difficulties.
Depression / Isolation
As a young adult, I faced depression during early college years myself. One major lesson from those years was the importance of seeking help EARLY before things snowball. Seriously, before you fall behind in classes and withdraw or isolate out of shame, reach out. You need not suffer alone and early intervention makes a huge difference.
Depression without treatment is more likely to worsen and recur. So, it’s best to catch it early, learn to manage symptoms (with or without medication), and address factors exacerbating the depression. Any disturbance of mood can affect your energy level, motivation, and connection to support – and each of those can negatively affect your school performance.

CRITICAL NOTE ABOUT USING YOUR INSURANCE: I do not bill insurance if the focus is more on relationship-focused support such as with polyamory, non-monogamy, conscious monogamy, couples counseling or kink. Insurance requires a mental health diagnosis to meet ‘medical necessity’ for treatment to be covered. Instead, paying privately, we can address these relationship-focused issues with maximum privacy. If needed, we can combine your mental health treatment with this relationship support to work in a holistic manner. In short, privately paying for services offers you greater flexibility in your sessions, freedom from insurance constraints, and privacy.
