My Approach to Psychotherapy

As an inner bonding specialist, I help women who are feeling stuck, stressed, and distressed due to challenges in their relationships, family of origin issues, and other past wounds.

My style of therapy is supportive and compassionate. I’ll walk along-side you as you share about your journey, allowing me to see the world through your eyes.

My approach to therapy is integrative and grounded in research. I draw from psychodynamic, cognitive-behavioral, and family therapy approaches.

My goal is to work with you to provide you relief from your stress and distress. My intention is to provide you with some excellent tools that will enable you to feel much more at peace and empowered no matter what you face in life going forward.

My Approach to Life Coaching

I guide women and others to get in touch with their true selves, to feel empowered in their lives, and take the steps needed to achieve their goals.

My Approach to Marriage Counseling

I help couples learn to improve their relationships and resolve conflicts. In our time together, you’ll learn more about yourself and your partner, and you’ll make thoughtful decisions about how best to strengthen your relationship.

My Approach to Christian Counseling

For those seeking a Christian therapist, I help individuals connect with their Inner Self, and God. I also help them heal emotionally at deep levels through guiding them through inner healing processes. Together, we can discuss your faith and utilize prayer as a tool for healing and personal growth.

So you can learn more about my services and make sure we’re a great fit, I offer free consultations over the phone or via live video chat.

Video Sessions

In the age of FaceTime and Skype, the idea of being “face-to-face” with another person digitally is now fairly commonplace. We offer individual psychotherapy and life coaching through a secure video conferencing system.

Phone Sessions

Most clients seek to be “seen” in a figurative sense, but not everyone wants to be seen (literally) during a therapy session. Phone counseling allows clients to focus on their thoughts and emotions without worrying about their physical appearance.

In-Persons Sessions

In-person services are provided at the client’s home, the provider’s office, or another location of your choosing.

Dr. Lovejoy is based in Ojai and has multiple office locations. She is accessible to Malibu, Thousand Oaks, Westlake, Ventura, Santa Barbara, Oxnard, and Camarillo.
