What is psychotherapy? It is a space that supports you in working through the pressures of anxiety, depression, grief and loss, relationship struggles, work/life stress, and even to explore life enhancement and goal achievements. It is a judgement free place where someone listens, gives you space to tell your truth, seeks to understands what you are going through and is specially equipped to support you with processes to move you beyond these challenges.

In my practice I work with children, teens and their families to help them overcome what sometimes is debilitating emotional distress. Whether it's issues around ADHD, Adoption, Anxiety, Autism Spectrum Disorders, or Depression, I work with a number of modalities like art, play and sand play therapy to help the children communicate and learn about the emotions behind their behavior. In a place and time that is only for them, they learn to trust as they learn tools that will eventually help them lead happy and capable lives. I also work with children in groups and with individual adults.

Psychotherapy provides a safe place for you to learn about yourself with another person who isn't related to you and who you don't have to protect from your fears, secrets or uncertainties. Some people use this time to work out problems from their childhood and to see how that may be effecting their lives and relationships today. Others focus on what they want to create for life now and in the future. We can work together to help you learn better skills to cope with uncertainty, striving, change, and success, or failure. I can be a sounding board for you to practice your communication skills in session and a witness and coach as you create new direction and focus for your life.

In laymen's terms, psychotherapy is the opportunity to talk about and process your problems or challenges with a trained therapist. Sometimes, we don't need someone to try to fix our problems for us, which is what most of our friends try to do when we talk about them. Sometimes we need someone who will listen and be a sounding board so we can think through and process for ourselves. I want to support you with your goals and your needs and we can make a therapy plan (psychotherapy or other types) that you feel will best suit your needs. Most importantly, I provide that safe environment for you to be able to be vulnerable, talk about, and process whatever is on your heart and in your mind.

Marriage Family Therapist (MFT)

I offer depth psychotherapy for women and men who realize that their lives and their relationships are not satisfying leaving them and they are frustrated, angry and hurt. Whether with a significant other, at work or in their families, my clients know that something is not working but they are at a loss to understand what it is and how to fix it. This is where psychotherapy and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) can be very helpful. Understanding how you were taught to view the world and beginning to question those beliefs can lead to significant improvements in relationships and overall well-being.

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.

Marriage & Family Therapist, Professional Clinical Counselor

In 95008 - Nearby to Monte Sereno.

In psychotherapy, the therapist and the client build a unique relationship. Like most positive relationships, it is centered on caring and trust. Unlike other relationships, this one exists solely to meet the needs of the client. It can be very helpful to talk with friends and family when you’re struggling, but friends and family have a vested interest in the outcome of your struggles. They are familiar with who you are, so it is usually uncomfortable for them if you change, even when the change is positive and needed. As an unbiased professional, your therapist focuses on what is best for you, whether it is making big changes, small changes, or no changes.

Psychotherapy can be a great opportunity. I think the bravest and healthiest people are willing to submit themselves to the process of psychotherapy. When we suffer in silence, we are unable to see many things. Psychotherapy gives us a chance to examine ourselves in a new way. Moreover, modern psychotherapy, including the online and virtual counseling and psychotherapy services I offer, can provide us with lasting change. I know change may seem impossible... But our brains have neural-plasticity, meaning they can change. Each of us CAN change. Change is possible! I encourage you to contact me today at 408-249-0014 to begin changing your life. You are worth it!

Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor & Certified EMDR Therapist

In 95073 - Nearby to Monte Sereno.

My general approach to psychotherapy is by the use of EMDR therapy, of which I am a Certified EMDR Therapist through EMDRIA, Inc. This therapy is excellent with trauma and anxiety disorders, nightmares, flashbacks, panic, and other disturbances that continue on for years. Spiritual issues are a frequent topic that my clients want to discuss - the guide for these issues is the Bible. Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) is about how people think, how people feel, and how people behave. Generally speaking, faulty thinking patterns will lead to bad moods and bad behavior. CBT addresses these issues and can be used in conjunction with EMDR therapy as well. I favor these three types of therapy

Sometimes we need a little help from a trained professional to get ourselves back on track and attain clarity of thought. This is not a sign of weakness of character, but a humble trait of humanity that most of us experience at one time or another. The most fulfilled people in life are those who consistently look for tools and skills to use in the face of life's day to day challenges. Its not about how heavy the burden is, but how you carry the load. I can help you focus your attention and intention so that you are leading a life which brings you joy and contentment.

You are the most important person in the room when you come to counseling. It is a place for you to discover the deep-down you--your thoughts, your feelings, your deep-down fears and concerns. It's a place to explore your core beliefs and to put them up to the mirror to find out if those beliefs are valid or need to be rewritten into something more realistic for you. As a result, you can develop better relationships and communication skills. You will learn how to live a more effective life versus life just happening to you. You have a choice. Do you want to manage and orchestrate your life to become the person you always dreamed of becoming or have old feelings and fears dragging you down?

Alternative and Integrated Practitioner | GRIT Kids Coaching

Available for Online Therapy

I work with an entire person--the mind, emotions, body, spirit, relationships. I offer an alternative approach to traditional psychotherapy because sometimes we are stuck beyond our thoughts. I believe we are often stuck beyond how we think about something, but by how our body holds and remembers the experiences. After all, we feel the anxiety in our chest, shoulders or stomach. When we are depressed, we struggle to move, sleep, concentrate etc. I work to remove the block from wherever it is stuck. My clients come to me after years of ineffective therapy. They are looking for more than talking about their struggles or identifying how they think about them in favor of a change in living.

In order for therapy to be effective, you'll need to have a strong desire to improve your life and be as open as you can be in sharing your hurt and struggles. Therapy helps you overcome your problems and move forward in your life. It enables you to get in touch with the deeper parts of yourself so that you trust yourself and others more. Therapy empowers you to be better able to recognize your strengths and build upon them. As you progress in therapy, you'll be more accepting of life's challenges and become more resilient to future stresses. Counselling Approaches I have an integrative approach to counselling, focusing on humanistic, attachment, and family systems theories.

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

In 95032 - Nearby to Monte Sereno.

Many clients have reported that their past therapists have just "sat there and listened" without offering any advice of value. While we all need a sounding board and time to tell our story, many clients are interested in their therapists' feedback. When and where appropriate, I am willing to offer my thoughts and experience to my clients. It is through building a healthy, authentic relationship with our therapists that enables us to use this as a model for our other significant relationships. Psychotherapy is the perfect place to begin (or continue) this process.
