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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

I help clients find strengths and ways to manage difficult or challenging situations. I also help clients with histories of trauma and abuse come to terms with difficult memories, turning ghosts into ancestors. Ghosts scare us. Ancestors we remember, but they don't have the power to terrify us. Life provides many challenges that anyone can struggle with, whether it is a traumatic experience or a life long struggle to overcome anxieties, worries and depression. We all live in relationships and can learn so much about our strengths, challenges and possibilities. I would be happy to help you with understanding your relationships from a positive and strength based perspective.

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.

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.

Surprising as it may be, what happens to us does not determine our happiness so much as how we relate to what happens. Psychotherapy provides an environment and an opportunity to explore the ways you relate to your experience, and in so doing to help you have more fulfilling relationships with others, and a greater sense of meaning and understanding in your life. It also helps you make better choices and change unhelpful, limiting behaviors and relational patterns. Incorporating Buddhist mindfulness practice, as well as current understanding of how the brain processes information, I'm very engaged and collaborative in helping you achieve the goals you want to address in our work.

Life can be challenging. Sometimes we can find ourselves with overwhelming emotions, struggling in relationships and having difficulty in our daily functioning. Everybody has these moments, and everybody needs some help once in a while. This is where I come in. Whether you are struggling with anxiety, depression, relationship issues, life transitions, grief, past trauma or whatever, I can help. As a holistic psychotherapist, my main goal is to help you find meaning and purpose in your life. My intention is to be a guide in helping you find what it is that you've been seeking: love, joy, satisfaction, comfort, peace, an understanding of your purpose, etc.

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.

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.

No two people are exactly the same, so my approach to each client depends on her particular needs and goals. I take a top-down/bottom-up approach in that we work on how our minds control the body and how the body controls the mind, so that ultimately you have control over both. We will look at patterns that are working and patterns that aren't in terms of emotions, relationships, and behaviors. We figure out how those patterns originated so that we know how to eliminate what's not working and find new, more functional patterns. Science shows us that talk therapy isn't just talk. Therapy literally changes the wiring of your brain to give you more choice, functionality, and joy.
