Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

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?

I work with you to help you discover the road blocks that are keeping you from living life the way you choose. Mood disorders particularly from issues in your past combined with stressors or triggers currently can take the joy out of your life. Don't let this happen. You can heal from your or past. You can learn to think, feel and behave in different way that can bring you joy and fulfillment. I look forward to meeting with you to discuss how this can be achieved.

Coach/Change Agent/Consultant

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.

Shereen Mohsen, Psy.D.

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

Within driving distance of Rio del Mar

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

Jason Esswein, M.S., LMFT

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Rio del Mar

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

Magda Wroblewska, MA, MS, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Rio del Mar

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!

Psychotherapist

Verna Nelson, MA, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Rio del Mar

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.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Gratitude and compassion change lives. I will help you harness these powers to grow all that is good in yourself, your loved ones, and your world. We will leverage all that is right with you and your world to transform all that you wish to change. We will meet suffering with compassion, discouragement with gratitude, and feelings of inadequacy with celebrations of strength. If you are struggling with painful life experiences, I will support you with relatively brief and non-intrusive forms of trauma therapy. And if you desire parenting support, I will help you set limits without anger and reinforce positive behavior with heartfelt gratitude.

Miryam Mejia, LMFT, Agent of Change

LMFT

Within driving distance of Rio del Mar

By participating in therapy with me you agree to commit to at least five sessions. Immediately I ask for goalsetting. At the very basic level I'll request that you compare a behavior or condition that currently exists and where do you want it. For example if you have insomnia five days a week, then let's get it down to 3 times per week. Methodology for this is through homework. Homework includes activity tracking and writing down your beliefs. During our visits we will talk about what you wrote. If you don't bring in the homework we'll talk about that too. I am very action oriented and directive. When you agree to do a suggested experimental intervention, you'll always learn something!

Psychotherapist

Randi Fredricks, Ph.D., LMFT

Licensed Marriage Family Therapist

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.
