Coronado Psych offers clinical psychology services for young adults, adults, and seniors with a variety of psychological symptoms and presentations, including depression, anxiety, trauma, grief and bereavement, stress related to work, school, daily life, or difficult family and social dynamics.
A course of treatment at Coronado Psych begins with a comprehensive psychological assessment, followed by an evidence-based treatment plan tailored to each client’s needs. Our psychologists have extensive training in several different therapy modalities, including cognitive-behavioral therapy, motivational interviewing, schema therapy, and interpersonal techniques and work collaboratively with each client to develop treatment plans that best fit each client’s needs and goals for psychotherapy.
Health Psychologists offer evidence-based psychotherapy and supportive counseling services to patients and their caregivers who are coping with a wide variety of serious and/or chronic health conditions. We understand that physical discomforts of medical conditions are just one aspect of the patient experience. Our specialists are dedicated to ensuring patients and their caregivers get the adequate emotional support they need as they navigate the often complex and uncertain path of managing serious and/or chronic health conditions.
Within this service, the initial assessment is focused on the client’s adjustment to the various stages of chronic and serious illness (e.g. diagnosis, prognosis, treatment, side-effects, or survivorship). Health psychologists then work collaboratively with the client to tailor established interventions to best fit each patient’s needs and goals. Health psychology treatment plans vary greatly, and can include managing emotional distress associated with medical diagnosis and treatment, supporting behavioral changes, integrating your health status with your overall sense of self, managing difficult conversations with healthcare providers, preventing caregiver burnout, and so much more.
In order to increase accessibility to care, Coronado Psych offers telephone and secure, encrypted video-conference psychotherapy sessions. Psychological services via telehealth allow California residents to easily access our services without having to travel to Coronado Island. When appropriate, telepsychology can be just as effective as in-person therapy. Telepsychology services can also increase adherence to treatment plans by removing logistical barriers that can often interrupt treatment. Such services can also be useful in maintaining momentum in therapy and increasing continuity of care between in-person sessions.
It is important to note that telepsychology may not be appropriate for everyone. That is why we ask that all individuals interested in this service attend at least one in-person session in order to discuss the potential benefits and risks of using telepsychology and to collaboratively assess the appropriateness of this service to address each client’s needs and goals.
*Please note that due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we are currently offering all appointments, including initial appointments, to patients located in California through secure and encrypted video-conferencing platforms. Please feel free to contact us for more information.*
