Kasey & Co. Therapy Group advocates for a future where access to high-quality mental health care is not only protected but designed by the unparalleled talent of an inclusive workforce. The philosophy behind this vision is one of transforming care to have more of an elevated and distinguished impact on the culture of mental health. All services offer a role in creating this climate by deliberately and continually, articulating, reinforcing, and modeling industry-leading standards for premier health and wellness.
Our Suite of Services
We offer concierge-style services with a quick onboarding process for individual and family therapy, clinical supervision and provider consultation in California. Services are designed for individuals 18+. There is an accommodation for families and adolescents 14+ at provider discretion. All ongoing clients are welcomed in with a free consultation to ensure the best professional fit and service personalization. Your provider will then walk you personally through onboarding and all aspects of service delivery.
Most services start with a free 20 minute consultation, booked by phone or through the online self-service portal 24/7. Your confirmation email comes with an invitation to complete a short questionnaire. At the appointment time, virtually meet your selected provider and get an overview of the process.
Complete our Welcome Packet
All of the initial paperwork is captured once, electronically, at the start and we request only the necessary information. It shouldn’t take more than 15 minutes to complete. Most schedules are set weekly or bi-weekly, depending on the service.
Each service has a set of goals that are collaboratively designed. Whether it is reducing anxiety in therapy, cultivating the mindset to ask for that raise during your next review cycle, or regularly attending supervision, we identify what is most important to you, and evaluate dates/deadlines, steps, barriers, collaborators, cost and commitment to those priorities. We emphasize the strategies needed to get results!
Grow and Refine
We all live what we’ve learned. Unlearning and relearning takes definition, patience, consistency, and self-compassion. We are here to help you do what you want to personally and professionally, but no empire was ever built overnight. Expect to stay consistent, challenge barriers, be creative, learn new ways of relating to ourselves and others and be willing to entertain new belief systems.
How We Make Our Services Accessible
Online By Design
Our therapy and consultation services are designed to be 100% virtual and they are here to stay. When the owner, Kasey David, started her solo practice in 2019, it was virtual by design. Elements have been revised to support a group practice. Virtual services are here to stay, without sacrifice or deadlines.
Our providers often see people during the evenings and weekends. Evening appointments are available between 5:00 pm and 8:00 pm. Saturday appointments are available 9:00 am to 12:00 pm.
We employ Masters degreed pre-licensed therapists, who are in the process of gaining experience towards full licensure. Because they work under high quality supervision and have been trained in the most modern practices, we are able to offer their services at rate of $80/hr. This offers clients seeking a low-cost option to receive care from the most contemporary and recently informed therapists.
Our Practice Manager and some of our therapists are Spanish-speaking. For a consistent experience, paperwork is available in also Spanish. Se habla Espanol.
Our Service Philosophy is About…
Making Diversity Matter
Each provider has spent 90% of their professional career, working with underrepresented, underappreciated, or stigmatized populations. We are aligned with finding diversity and difference because we believe that is what makes people whole. Our services are designed with a lens of inclusivity, flexibility, and multiculturalism, to accentuate diversity so we can meet the changing needs of the population.
Based on our principles of diversity, equity and inclusion, 40% of our staff are bilingual, we regularly participate in philanthropic activities, set aside time to work pro-bono, and give back locally to empower the community. In addition, we are:
- LGBT, body-positive, vegan/vegetarian, HIV/AIDS, and sex-worker allied
- Experienced with treating high-impact experiences like traumatic events and oppression
- Have personal and professional values that align with social work values, such as social justice, dignity, service, and empowerment
- Routinely do our own “inner work” to recognize biases, conflicts, and privilege to be the most effective
Culturally Diverse Clients
All of our providers maintain a caseload of culturally diverse clientele. It is a privilege to serve clients who would share with us experiences that differ from our own, so we can experience the fullness of life. Though diverse, there is a common humanity we aim to find amongst each individual we serve.
We don’t want everyone to look alike.
We are comfortable talking about the issues of race, ethnicity, privilege, sexuality, finances, motherhood, death, trauma, and more. We have done our inner work to heal personally, so we can normalize these topics and create a culture of safety around them.
We are committed to being safe.
Each of our providers has general training in depression and anxiety, as they are two of the most common issues we see. In addition, we all acquire additional training and continuing education to treat a special population, such as women, sexual trauma, or multiculturalism.
Training is based on the population.
What Our Favorite Leaders Say About Honoring Life
“I want to be in the arena. I want to be brave with my life. And when we make the choice to dare greatly, we sign up to get our asses kicked. We can choose courage or we can choose comfort, but we can’t have both. Not at the same time.”
“You may encounter many defeats, but you must not be defeated. In fact, it may be necessary to encounter the defeats, so you can know who you are, what you can rise from, how you can still come out of it.”
Ruth Bader Ginsburg
“Dissents speak to a future age. It’s not simply to say, ‘My colleagues are wrong and I would do it this way.’ But the greatest dissents do become court opinions and gradually over time their views become the dominant view. So that’s the dissenter’s hope: that they are writing not for today, but for tomorrow.”

What to Expect
About Our Group
Certain providers see minors 14-17 years old.
100% online Must be physically in the state of California
Se habla Español
We are Bilingual. Certain providers speak Spanish.
Most therapy sessions are held weekly or biweekly, generally for 50 min. at the same day and time.
An online portal available to clients 24/7 for scheduling, messaging, secure payment, and documentation.
HIPAA Compliant systems and security measures, with the highest level of privacy and confidentiality in remote work spaces.
Any internet-enabled device like a desktop computer, laptop, tablet, or smartphone can be used to access sessions. On a cellphone or tablet, you must download the Telehealth by Simple Practice app first. No account log-ins is necessary.
You can be hard wired into a computer, using Wi-Fi, or even hot-spot to access sessions. Please select a space that optimizes high quality internet speed and range. In the event of technical difficulty, you may elect to turn your camera off or hold a session by telephone.
While you must be physically located in the state of California, therapy can be held anywhere you have a designated space that protects your confidentiality, such as a room, a car, or an office. Please think ahead about where you will be having sessions to ensure that the environment limits distractions, noise, and respects the information you share. You should typically be alone in the space, unless previously arranged with your provider for security purposes. Don’t forget headphones!
We ask that you dress comfortably, as therapy should be experienced with as much serenity and safety as possible. Wear what you feel is appropriate to the setting and allows you to speak freely, feel grounded, and communicates respect. We don’t have a problem with pajamas, hair wraps, or face masks.
We have been all telehealth-ed out these past two years, but telehealth continues to bring services to people who may not otherwise be able to access therapy with who they want.
Telehealth, online therapy, virtual therapy, or any of the other names it has been known by can be a great fit for people with geographical limits (e.g. therapists are too far), caregiving responsibilities, full schedules, require non-traditional hours or just prefer it.
We have seen people benefit from telehealth when it is balanced in moderation with other forms of screen time and responsibilities.
The online platform hasn’t affected our ability to see, hear, and understand the needs of our population. It did shift our efforts to be more eco-conscious via paperless systems, accessible through instant scheduling and electronic systems, and affordable with low overhead.
How We Promote Change
What You Really Want to Know
What Happens Now?
Some of the most commonly asked questions are “What happens now? How long will this take? Is it going to be difficult?” The answer is: we don’t have all the answers. This is not to say that we can’t give you a professional opinion, but the certainty that most people seek when they first come to therapy can’t always be provided. What we do know is how change happens and how to get the most out of your time with us.
Certain elements give therapy, good fit, and change their power.
Creating Space for Change:
• Curiosity— for your experiences in place of criticism.
• Trust—the ability to trust us, your own innate wisdom, and the process.
• Affirmation— You are a whole beautiful and complex person. We will affirm the parts of you that need more representation in the world.
• Visualization—envision a place different than where you are. Without it, you won’t be able to move into any direction in the future.
• Consistency— change takes time and consistent effort. We encourage therapy to be viewed as investment in your long-game.
It’s hard to put into words what you get from sitting with a therapist as a blanket statement. It’s a highly individualized process, with different points of view, and success measured in different ways.
We are of the mindset that you already have all the answers you need. We simply help you excavate mindsets, teach skills that become a bridge, increase your capacity for reflection, navigate cultural experiences and take committed action that honors that stage you’re in.
A Message from Our Founder
Social workers are often called upon to support the public, but recognized minimally for their efforts. Supervision has become the space to put into practice the skills necessary to advocate for that recognition. Specifically— equality, safety, respect for our education and training, and value in the workforce. The advocacy necessary for social workers to promote the interests of their clients first starts with a disciplined ability to protect their own—a skill learned in high quality supervision.
At Kasey & Co. Therapy Group, our supervision philosophy is guided wholeheartedly by the Council on Social Work Education‘s 9 Core Competencies and the vision that social workers deserve a livable wage, professional respect, and to be seen for their efforts in protecting the social welfare of the public. We hold that supervision is a safe place to process learning experiences and enhance skills for effective social work practice in the modern era. Learning is didactic, collaborative, conceptual, experiential, feedback-rich, and based on individually outlined goals and objectives.
Our leadership style and guidance is comprehensive— administrative, educational and supportive. Through our guiding philosophies, we aim to build clinical competencies, internalize legal and ethical obligations, teach cultural awareness and inclusivity, inoculate against chronic stress and burnout, and protect future social workers against abusive and exploitative working practices.
Based in Loma Linda, on set days and times for individual, triadic, and group.
Where allowed by law, agency, and supervisor discretion.
Within Riverside and San Bernardino Counties (25 mile radius), who will provide professional office-space. Limited slots and availability.
Learning Plan Agreements, Process Recordings and Time Logs, Oh My!
Don’t worry. We understand the assignment.

Mobile supervision can be held at the agency you work at, if private meeting space is available.

You may read more about supervisors here.
How do I know that my supervision is confidential and follows HIPAA regulations?
Each supervisee signs an internal Professional Supervision Agreement outlining confidentiality and expectations for mandated reporting.
The supervisor will maintain documentation of each supervision, in a secure HIPAA compliant and confidential format of all cases discussed, progress towards learning, specific recommendations, suggested readings and/or educational activities.
The supervisees client records should always reflect that they are working under a licensed provider and verify that the client has the name, address, and phone number of the supervisor.
Supervision is always held in a private space, behind a closed door, or using systems that are HIPAA-compliant (e.g. Zoom).
What are the expectations of supervisees?
- In concert with the supervisor, supervisee will develop goals, learning needs, identify personal strengths and areas of growth, seek supportive counseling and feedback, conduct crisis management, assessments, interventions, documentation, and program development.
- Regularly attend supervision as scheduled.
- Inform clients that the supervisee is practicing under the supervisor’s license and how they may contact the supervisor if needed.
- Prepare for supervision with client conceptualizations, case presentations, questions, and any applicable clinical records.
- Seek feedback, guidance/training, and resources from the supervisor.
- Maintain accurate, ethical, clear, and appropriate documentation.
- Track clinical hours (such as weekly tracking log, educational system, Tracking Software, or an excel spreadsheet).

An Open Letter to Healthcare Workers
For a long time, the culture has been resistant to talking about the topics that actually result in real change for us—generating income, creating professional boundaries, quality training and consultation, and unequivocally asserting our value and worth. We often find ourselves on the losing end of a power struggle with the system and are supposed to be okay with it, so we can maintain our “professional virtuosity”.
So we don’t invest in ourselves.
We’re hypocritical. We overcommit. We undersell ourselves. We accept insufficient knowledge. We go through the motions. We accept the lowest offers possible. We tolerate. We stay.
It’s hard to be a helper and change-maker when you aren’t maintaining the integrity of your own professional values–when you have a hard time conveying your own value and trust yourself to be ENOUGH.

Relatable Things Every “Virtuous” Healthcare Worker Knows
- Burnout is a “badge of honor”. If you aren’t burnt out, you aren’t sacrificing enough.
- Never say “no” to work, but be forgiving when they deny time off requests.
- Being rested is a privilege—tired is the norm.
- Negotiating money is for the greedy.
- It’s okay if you’re in a lot of debt.
- It’s okay if you don’t know clinical interventions
- You should be helping people at all times, even at your own personal expense.
We often become victims of outdated and disserving ideology, if we can’t recognize unfair practices, outdated standards and organizational abuse. Be your own leader and visionary and create the equality you do for others.
What Can Consultation Do For you?
Consultation is a collaborative process that offers you a voice and a choice. You may choose to seek out your own education or be the initiator that brings education to your agency. You may elect to set more boundaries or reinforce the discipline needed to follow through. You can pique our curiosity about what it will take to do the things you believe cannot be done. YOU CAN SEEK YOUR OWN ANSWERS.
“Kasey is an amazing teacher with so much insight to offer. Learning from her has been such an amazing opportunity.”—Jessica W. LCSW
“In this field, we see a lot of people who minimize their own abilities. Sometimes that is the nature of our profession. There are a lot of people who are capable, but have a lot of doubt and that’s what stops us from moving forward. It is important to uplift our providers. Kasey David brought a different perspective. She is empowering up and coming social workers and helping them the see value within themselves.”— Eddie L. ASW
