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.

As a Psychotherapist who has practiced both in Belgium and California I have a keen understanding about how multi-cultural issues such as immigration, culture-shock and re-entry shock can affect a person or relationship. Since each person or relationship is Unique I make use of several therapeutic techniques. I have a wealth of experience helping people with a variety of issues either through the means of individual psychotherapy or couples counseling.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Portola Valley

I've talked to countless individuals who question whether or not therapy works. They leave my office relaxed, sometimes laughing, most importantly hopeful. I am fascinated by the growth that happens when people feel safe and not judged. I invite you to be yourself. Only when we accept who we are, are we open to change. My approach is first of all nonjudgmental. I love to see people blossom when they feel that they can be who they are, and share all their thoughts and feelings. I look forward to working with you and helping you meet the real you!

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

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.

Psychotherapist

Randi Fredricks, Ph.D., LMFT

Licensed Marriage Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Portola Valley

Psychotherapy is a practice that dates back to prehistory. It is a special relationship and pattern of human experience that started when humans began living together in close communities and sought healing and counseling from particular members of the community. Out of respect for the ancient roots of my profession, I combine the wisdom of ancient healing practices with modern modes of psychotherapy. These methods have been used for thousands of years and have recently been proven to work studies in both medicine and psychology.

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

Psychotherapy can look different for everyone depending on one's goals and expectations. I work to understand what each person wants to get out of therapy, and closely collaborate in determining what is the best course of action to meet those goals. I focus on building a strong therapeutic relationship with each child, teen or adult as this is often a catalyst in seeing positive change.

Psychotherapist

Robin Bates-Pualuan, MS, LMFT, LPCC

Marriage & Family Therapist, Professional Clinical Counselor

Within driving distance of Portola Valley

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.
