The best therapists are genuine, compassionate and insightful. As I listen, interact and guide, these are the values I hold most highly. I take an empathic, common-sense approach to exploring relationships with family, work and community. Trust, respect, and mutual understanding are hallmarks of a successful therapy relationship, allowing lasting change with safety and support. The goals: to challenge self-defeating patterns, deepen self-understanding, and participate in relationships with integrity, courage and an open heart. I work exclusively with adults and couples, using research-based methods to improve relationship skills and self confidence. Visit KinseyLeaseCounseling.com.

I practice psychotherapy from a engaged, kind and collaborative stance. I have trained in several contemporary and well-researched psychotherapy modalities that are designed to maximize both a sense of safety and trust in the therapy relationship, as well as demonstrative, positive change in a client's life. Many clients who have found previous psychotherapy less than effective for them find that they are able to meet their therapeutic goals in their work with me.

Psychotherapy can be very helpful to most people for many different issues or challenges. Through psychotherapy, a person learns what his/her strengths and weakness are which is beneficial in developing ways to overcome struggles. Psychotherapy also helps put the puzzle together about how symptoms developed originally. Often this knowledge alone helps people figure out what path he/she should take to reach goals.

Healthy relationships make healthy people. Unfortunately, about 50% of our society, while their parents may have loved them dearly, didn't get enough attachment and connection. When this happens, the normal / natural response is depression, anger, excess perfectionism, feeling uncomfortable in your skin, etc. While I may use several modalities, I am always being present and attuning to you in a way that gives you permission to be who you are. My experience is this creates a re-wiring of the "attachment / connecting" neuropathways in your brain. My clients, usually between 6 months and 2 years experience significant emotional shifts that allow them to feel comfortable in their own skin.

You don't need to do it all alone. And turns out, as more and more brain research is showing us, you're not meant to. Many of our original wounds, with echoes in our current lives, come from past and often early relationships. And while there are many valuable paths to healing, psychotherapy provides a special safe relationship in which these past experiences can be rewired and new aspects of yourself can be discovered or rediscovered. With compassionate reflection, encouragement, and challenge, transformation can happen!

Often in our lives we can benefit from having a safe compassionate listener outside of our family or friends circle. A neutral party that can be both direct and empathetic can help you examine troubling emotions and life issues that are contributing to a less than satisfying life. You will feel heard and understood as we explore and move through obstacles that may be interfering with your stability. I will help you access your personal strengths and resources to develop strategies to change what is not working and learn new ways to be healthier / happier in your world. Life will never be perfect however our ability to manage life can make a world of difference in our well being.

I love doing psychotherapy with individuals. It is an exploration of who you are, your stengths, where to you get stuck? Many issues you may be struggling with just vanish with a new understanding of your life and your body's responses to stress and trauma. Sometimes, specific tools and skills need to be learned and practiced. Safety and confidetiality are the first requirements in working well together. Next comes attunement. Have you ever felt like someone really really gets you? That is what good therapy does. Being really understood by someone makes us feel better about ourselves and removes our shame, allowing us to connect with others and enjoy our life rather than be burdened by it.

Regardless of therapeutic technique, the most important part of psychotherapy is the relationship between client and therapist. Therapy is best when it is collaborative. In my work, I support, and sometimes challenge, you to dig deep, to examine what is working for you, and the ways you are not in alignment with your own vision of health. There are good reasons each of us has come to behave as we do. Even if some of our behaviors or beliefs no longer serve us, or even harm us, it is important that we understand how we came to use certain strategies in order to let them go and choose new ways of being in the world.

As a psychotherapist, my goal is to support my clients in their process of personal discovery. My intention is to create a safe environment in which to support and facilitate my clients’ personal growth. I encourage my clients to learn and practice the kinds of behaviors that provide them with feelings of clarity and personal satisfaction. I help clients identify concerns, problems or situations in their lives that interfere with their ability to feel happy and function successfully. In the course of exploring the nature and cause of their unhappiness or frustration they are better able to effect changes in their attitudes and behaviors, thereby making their lives more fulfilling.

The process of therapy is and should be tailored to each individual's life experience. Research shows that clients in therapy, who seek assistance to deal with a whole range of issues, challenges, thoughts, and emotions, can experience a positive benefit. In our collaborative work, we will complete a comprehensive biopsychosocial assessment, where we look at many life factors that may be contributing to those challenges for which therapy is being considered. After an assessment, we will have a clearer idea of core values, possible goals and many ideas on designing a flexible plan that is easy to understand and use to bring about the transformation desired.

I am a licensed Marriage and Family Psychotherapist specializing in therapy for couples, individual adults and adolescents. I practice Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) which encourages clients to challenge the thoughts, beliefs and assumptions they hold about the world around them. CBT teaches clients that they can be more active in choosing how they will respond to life. Clients are encouraged to look at their current behaviors and change the ones that are not benefitting them. Clients become more empowered and take control of their lives. Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy can help put you back in the drivers seat and provide you with the tools you need to accomplish your goals.

I treat individuals, couples, and families. I tailor each client's treatment plans according to their individual needs. My clients have a stronger sense of self, as well as more confidence and self-esteem. The benefit of psychotherapy is to bring core issues up to the surface and gently discard old, unhealthy coping mechanisms and replace with new healthier ones.

We are all born with the capacity for joy and love, but sometimes, as adults, we forget the wondrous sense of possibility or dreams we once had for our lives. Psychotherapy can help you reconnect with yourself and your hopes and aspirations for your life. It can also help you: (1) Develop more awareness about your needs (2) Express yourself more openly and authentically (3) Understand the ways your childhood impacts your experience of yourself as an adult (4) Cope with circumstances such as loss, illness, disability, anxiety, depression, parenting, marriage, aging, care-giving or conflicts in the workplace. If you would like to discuss your needs, please call me at 415-533-9724.

Are you noticing a vague sense of inner angst that just doesn't go away, despite your best intentions? Are you noticing the same patterns or cycles with yourself or with relationships that leave you feeling sad, angry, worried, depressed, or hurt? So often we notice that a part of us is off kilter, but without the tools and support to change, we tend to end up in the same negative patterns again and again, despite our desire to change. By offering specific specific tools for inner work and outer relationships, together we can help you move to a place of feeling empowered and at peace within. Please feel free to give me a call today at 925-520-5263.

For reasons that are not entirely clear, most people are helped by sitting down with someone who respects them and understands them, and devotes time to listening to them. I practice depth psychotherapy, but I often use very practical approached like cognitive-behavioral therapy, to help my clients get past life obstacles and moving forward in their lives.

If you are feeling overwhelmed and are experiencing anxiety, depression, parenting issues or relationship problems, individual psychotherapy can help you by offering a safe place just for you, so you can take a step back from your life, make sense of things, get some clarity, gain coping skills and a different perspective. My approach is to listen to you and treat you as the expert on your own life. I will try to reflect back what I'm hearing, make observations, point out patterns and help you to gain clarity so you can make decisions and take steps that work for you and fit with your priorities and values.

My approach is grounded in an existential-humanistic psychology tradition that is inspired by relational and psychodynamic therapeutic philosophies. What this essentially means is that I see my role as your therapist as one that tries to see you in a holistic way through dialogue so that you may better see yourself (your patterns, meaning behind your experience, etc.), and create the person that you want to become through a healthier mindset and future choices.

My approach to psychotherapy is a family systems/attachment approach. Knowing when it is safe to approach or avoid someone is learned in your upbringing. Those beliefs and strategies in relating to others may have worked in childhood, but now as an adult, these strategies are no longer working. Each person's way of loving is different. You will learn your love style while I provide you with a caring, nurturing, but challenging presence. I will help you understand your style, teach you new skills, and challenge you to apply those new strategies in relationship with others. I do provide a free consultation, when clients ask me.

Psychotherapy is a process of entering into a trusting, confidential relationship with a professionally trained therapist to explore your inner and outer conflicts, anxieties, relationship problems and traumas of all kinds, big and small. We all carry around inner voices and experiences from our childhood and youth, as well as from experiences in adulthood, which we are unaware of but have a big impact on our experience of self, other and Life itself. Psychotherapy is a safe place to sort it out and develop more sense of self-confidence, choice and strength. You should feel free to try different therapists and kind of therapy to see what feels right to you and trust your intuition.

My psychotherapy is a relational, bodily and experiential process that aims to bring more life and renewed energy to places that have been broken, wounded or suppressed. Together, we form a close , collaborative bond in which we co-create pathways toward healing and growth. I use the whole body as a tool for awareness and resourcing- and help you learn how to access the inner wisdom of your body. In addition to sitting, talking and listening, I offer other possibilities for processing in sessions- standing, moving, awareness of gestures, posture and inviting forms of expression and dramatization so that we can directly experience ourselves in new ways.

James Hillman once said, "We've had a hundred years of psychotherapy and the world is getting worse." While there are many occasions where the validation and listening endemic to psychotherapy makes sense, there are times where we over assume that "feeling better" and "changing behavior" are the same. Grey Matters International, Inc. goes after the forgotten brain laws to behavior change that therapists miss when processing hours and hours of dialogues with people. Utilizing a cutting edge technology to facilitate the emotional process of change, we can make the therapy process way more effective, faster, and with less money spent.
