Approach to Therapy
Dr. Coco is a Medicare provider and sees private practice patients at her office in Encino. She can also provide online therapy to clients residing anywhere in California via a simple HIPAA-complaint video platform. She is not on other insurance panels at this time but can give you a superbill to present to your insurance for possible out-of-network reimbursement.
Dr. Coco grew up in Southern California. She has a B.A. in English from La Sierra University, an M.A. in comparative literature from UCLA, and a Ph.D. in clinical psychology from Alliant University in San Diego. She first worked with college students as a predoctoral intern at the University of Oregon and later as a staff counselor and assistant dean of student services at Reed College in Portland. She took a hiatus to raise two children and care for her aging parents and then more recently returned to work with Oelberger Psychological Services, where she saw older and disabled adults in assisted living facilities and their own homes.
Dr. Coco lived in France after college, speaks conversational Spanish, loves horses, and has published poetry in numerous small literary journals.
