Work. Life. Meaning.

Women are juggling so much these days – building a successful career, having strong relationships with a partner/spouse  or children, exercise, being healthy, the list goes on. And we put pressure on ourselves to do more, be more, try harder. And even though our intentions are admirable, we can be left feeling less than, burnt out, or even feeling like a failure.

There’s hope. If you’re currently struggling with your career goals, feeling down or anxious, experiencing self-doubt, fear of failure, or personal/relationship concerns, we offer virtual, evidence-based therapy to help get you back to a place of thriving – a place where your career, personal life, and values are integrated in a way that works for you. 

We believe people deserve nothing but the best

 
At Moment in Mind, we are dedicated to offering evidence-based therapy. We solely offer services that are supported by research and considered best practices by the American Psychological Association. With advanced training in evidence-based psychotherapies and years of experience, we are invested in in offering services that individuals can trust are the best that the field has to offer. Services are also targeted and practical, with the goal of getting you back to feeling better as soon as possible, in as few sessions as are needed. Specifically, we offer services typically grounded in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), and Problem Solving Therapy (PST). Most therapeutic work also includes training in mindfulness practices due to a growing body of evidence showing the many benefits, including improved decision-making, problem-solving, and emotional resilience.

We understand the need to find someone you connect with

We know it can be difficult to find a professional with whom you connect. We offer a warm, safe, and supportive environment where you can explore, heal, and find real solutions that work for you. We attend to the therapeutic relationship at all times, and check-in regularly to ensure your progress and satisfaction. We value all aspects of diversity, and are supportive of all gender, ethnic, and religious identifications.

FAQ

FOR WHOM ARE THERAPY SERVICES AVAILABLE?

We are licensed clinical psychologists in the state of California. Therefore, therapy services are available for California residents (coaching services are available to anyone, anywhere).

 

HOW DO I KNOW IF THERAPY IS RIGHT FOR ME?

That can be a difficult question to answer, and we understand that seeking therapy services can be a confusing and difficult process. On a basic level, consider if you are experiencing mental health challenges, such as depression or anxiety-related symptoms, or feel that your daily functioning is being impacted. Moment in Mind therapists do NOT offer emergency services. Beyond that, we offer a free initial consultation to discuss your current concerns so you can make an informed decision about whether our services are a good fit for you.

 

DO YOU ACCEPT INSURANCE?

We do not accept insurance plans at this time. However, many insurance providers accept a “superbill” and will offer partial reimbursement for out-of-network therapists. If this is a possibility with your provider, we are happy to supply the required documentation.

 

THE MENTAL HEALTH FIELD CAN BE CONFUSING, WITH DIFFERENT CREDENTIALS, TRAINING, AND QUALIFICATIONS. HOW DO I KNOW IF MOMENT IN MIND SERVICES ARE WHAT I NEED?

Seeking therapy can be a confusing process, and it can be challenging for consumers to know what they’re getting. Here’s a sample of a Moment in Mind therapist’s experience.

Sarah A. Miller, PhD (Founder, Moment in Mind), has Master’s and Doctoral degrees from a top-ranked program, where she dedicated her clinical and research investigations to wellness, wellness in the workplace, and short-term behavioral interventions. She completed a competitive pre-doctoral internship and postdoctoral fellowship with the Department of Veterans Affairs, receiving advanced training in evidence-based psychotherapies, short-term therapies, and health psychology. This means she completed ~4000 hours of supervised clinical experiences.

She then went on to serve as a National Program Coordinator in Problem Solving Training for the Department of Veterans Affairs, helping to train hundreds of clinicians in simple, practical, and evidence-based techniques that got Veterans back on their feet and back into their lives as quickly as possible without diving deep into their past. Since transitioning to the private sector, she has worked with people who struggle in their daily lives, collaboratively building meaning, fulfillment, hope, and success.

Beyond that, Dr. Miller believes herself to be a consumer advocate, dedicated to providing only best practices to her clients. When you go to a medical doctor, you expect to receive treatments that have research support, and it’s her belief that individuals seeking mental health care deserve the same.
