Hi my name is Izzy, I am a recent graduate from Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo where I studied Psychology. At Indigena I have enjoyed working in the wellness center providing ear seeding and soon will be trained in ILS therapy.  I am hoping to become a licensed marriage and family therapist one day, and have enjoyed learning from Regina about integrated treatment while getting to help others. In my free time I enjoy reading, cooking, and playing soccer.

TESTIMONIAL

I know that it is sometimes hard to meet in the office. Sometimes you’re too busy, live too far away, or have trouble finding childcare. So I’ve added video counseling services. Now we can meet wherever it’s most convenient for you – your couch, your kitchen, or your hotel room.  All you need is a computer and broadband internet access. It’s secure and accepted by major health insurance companies. And - perhaps the best reason to consider it is the ease of use. If you’ve got any questions at all just let me know. I’m happy to help you figure out whether video sessions make sense for you.
