About this pro
The goal of psychotherapy is to make you stronger and more focused, so you can solve the problems that baffle and frustrate you today. You don't have to face alone the issues and situations that you are not sure how to master. Victory may find you at last if you keep hammering away with the same old hammer. Or success may come to stay in your life if you change your strategy entirely. Which path should you take? That is the mystery of your life today, and I would like to help you find the answer. Seeking help is the path to finding and using the strength and goodness that is already within you. Depression or anxiety distract you from your goals, make you forget your values, tell you that you are weak and vulnerable. But no matter how bleak things look, there is the kernel of strength and goodness inside you that we can work with and bring out to make a difference in your life. We can leverage it to lift you up above your current challenges to see the future that you want to build. Crisis is always an uninvited and loathsome guest, but it is also a teacher with valuable lessons. Crisis exploits and exposes our weaknesses and blind spots, sending us careening towards further trouble and maybe disaster lying in wait. Yet, if we stop for a moment to think and take a deep breath, we see that crisis also sheds the light on our path towards greater strength, fuller maturity, and deeper wisdom. When my patients and I take a step back from the crisis that occupies their immediate concerns, we often see that this is only a tip of the iceberg called change. Whether the change is positive or negative, if ignored and unmanaged, change will show up as its alter‐ego—crisis—and will sink our best constructed plans. As my patients and I work to see both the immediate and the panoramic, my style is creative, supportive, practical, and insightful. My job is to help the person who sees him or herself as a victim, to take stock of the past, accept the past’s lessons, decide what values will light the path forward, and having committed to these values, to do what is necessary move ahead as the hero in the story of one’s life. I am an Associate Marriage and Family Therapist, Reg. 93965. I am part of an organization that serves as a great platform for my work. I am employed by Steven Unruh, LMFT, Lic. 25201, a licensed psychotherapist and an experienced divorce mediator, who is my clinical supervisor. Steven has a Masters Degree in Divinity and often complements my own secular view of the world with his more spiritual perspective.

My anxiety is better thanks to the breathing exercises he taught me. A true professional. I feel I can tell him anything and he won't ridicule me. He really does care and wants the best possible outcome.May 12, 2018Verified
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?- The first hour of the first two sessions is free. The first and the second sessions are often two-hours long. So the first hour of the first session is free and the second hour of the first session is at the regular rate. It's the same with the second session. The first hour of the second session is free and the second hour of the second session is at the regular rate. - You may already know that the "hour-long" session is 50 minutes long. This is an old and a universal custom because the therapists need to take a break between sessions to write down progress notes and to get a little rest.
