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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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?

Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor & Certified EMDR Therapist

In 95073 - Nearby to Soquel.

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

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.

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.
