I find Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) to be the most useful tool in my psychotherapy toolbox. That's because CBT has been proven scientifically effective to reduce depression and anxiety for the last 50 years - and can be used in conjunction with or without medication. Proponents of CBT contend that it is not the events themselves that cause feelings of depression and anxiety, but rather what we tell ourselves about such events. Let me help you to identify the hurtful "self-talk" that is derailing your happiness!

Psychotherapy is really about learining how to live consciously. We go through our lives making decisions and choices and not really being aware of our intentions and the likely consequences of our choices. Living consciously requires intention and accountability. Our intention can either come from a place of fear or a place of love. If we choose based upon fear, the result will likely bring more fear into one's life. If our intention comes from a place of love, our decisions will likely result in healthy choices and relationships. I can hlep you in the process of living a more conscious and fullfilling life.

Healing and Peace Catholic Therapy Services

In 92008 - Nearby to Oceanside.

Are you sick of some persistent feeling, thought, behavior, or situation? There is a way out. Your time and money are valuable, thus I use the latest accelerated approaches for change. I use two key elements in therapy: (1) A non-judgmental approach towards your feelings and (2) a process of cause-and-effect discovery. Once my clients accept their "feeling selves" and discover the sources of their current unwanted psychological experiences, they usually experience a "felt shift" -- a lasting transformation that sets them free. To start working towards inner peace, call Thomas Schmierer, Catholic Therapist, LMFT today!

If you are struggling in life or feeling stuck and wanting to change, I offer a place for you to explore, gain insight, and experience growth and healing. I help people to identify negative patterns in their lives and in their relationships -- and then I help them to change those patterns. In the words of the Serenity Prayer, I help people have 'the serenity to accept the things they cannot change, the courage to change the things they can, and the wisdom to know the difference.'

Clinical Psychologist

Brief therapy focused on solutions to help reduce anxiety, fears, worry, panic attacks, anxiety attacks, stress and obsessing. While understanding the past and the 'why' of having anxiety, fears, or even phobias may help, what really makes recovery effective is learning new skills for relaxation, new ways to think productively, and the lifestyle behaviors that reduce stress and anxiety. My 23 years of working with these problems and the associated depression that often follows with anxiety and the major clinical research agree that cognitive - behavioral therapy works. I use a variety of tools to help you get relief and overcome fears, anxiety, worry, and depression.

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

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.

Licensed Clinical Social Worker, Clinical Psychology Doctor

In 92672 - Nearby to Oceanside.

My approach to psychotherapy is collaborative in that I work with my clients to unearth dysfunctional patterns of behaving or relating that are keeping them from the fulfilling lives and/or relationships they seek. As a solutions-focused psychotherapist I use complementary therapy approaches and techniques to teach clients new skills, increase understanding and insight, and build healthier lifestyle habits that are customized to address their unique therapy goals. My clients are encouraged to practice these new behaviors and ways of thinking between sessions so that the changes they make through our work together produce more satisfying and fulfilling lives.
