Dr. Tanika Gayle & Clinical Associates is now known as Collaborative Psychology Group, APC. The name change came as a result of an expansion to be able to serve multiple communities as well as out of the vision of Dr. Tanika Gayle. Dr. Gayle has been primarily based in Riverside, CA and now will also open a second office in Murrieta, CA. Dr. Gayle runs her practice from a collaborative relationship with her staff and often therapy in a collaborative relationship between the therapist and the client. In addition to these two practice locations, Dr. Gayle runs a family/couple training program named Family Support Services created by Dr. Susan Regas out of the Loma Linda location of Ronald McDonald House.
Collaborative Psychology Group is proud to be a diverse, affirming, multi-discipline psychology group practice. Our clinicians speak English, Farsi, and Spanish and we come from a broad ethnic, gender, and sexual diverse background. Our clinicians utilize approaches from Cognitive-Behavioral, Systems, Differentiation, EMDR, and all approaches are tailored to our clients through collaboration.
Collaborative therapy, a treatment approach developed by Harlene Anderson, focuses on the development of a collaborative and egalitarian relationship between a person in therapy and their therapist to facilitate dialogues that lead to positive change. This method is used to treat individuals, families, groups, and even organizations.
Do I really need therapy? I can usually handle my problems.
Everyone goes through challenging situations in life, and while you may have successfully navigated through other difficulties you've faced, there's nothing wrong with seeking out extra support when you need it. In fact, therapy is for people who have enough self-awareness to realize they need a helping hand, and that is something to be admired. You are taking responsibility by accepting where you're at in life and making a commitment to change the situation by seeking therapy. Therapy provides long-lasting benefits and support, giving you the tools you need to avoid triggers, re-direct damaging patterns, and overcome whatever challenges you face.
Is what I share with you confidential?
Confidentiality is one of the most crucial components in therapy. Successful therapy requires a high degree of trust with highly sensitive subject matter that is typically not shared outside the therapy office. Every therapist should provide you with a written document reviewing confidentiality policies and limitations. There are times that you may want your therapist to share information with someone on your healthcare team (physician; psychiatrist), but by law your therapist cannot share this information without obtaining your written consent. However, there are circumstances where disclosure is required or may be required by law:
-When there is a reasonable suspicion of child, dependent, or elder abuse or neglect
-When the client presents as a danger to self, to others, to property, or is gravely disabled
-When a client’s family member communicates that the client presents a danger to others
