I highly recommend Randy with his effective treatment and his comfortable, welcoming environment. I started seeing Randy at my doctor's recommendation for depression. I had never been to a therapist before and growing up in the conservative midwest where the idea of therapy is for weak and/or crazy people and you're just supposed to "tough up and deal with it", I had no idea what to expect. In just a few sessions, I feel completely and totally like a new person. I've realized that I have been mildly depressed for about 15 years now, and just thought it was "normal" to feel that way. The brainspotting technique Randy uses seems so simple, but has been extremely effective on me. With brainspotting, I focus my eyes on a spot that increases the intensity of the physical discomfort of my negative emotions, and I let out whatever comes out. I'm still floored by the past experiences that I've discovered this way and how they've shaped the way my thought patterns are today. It's a unique feeling of release, and I usually leave sessions with a goofy smile on my face, feeling a little like, "what just happened?" Randy's services have been a life-changer for me, and I can't thank him enough for the vast improvement in my quality of life.

He was genuine and didn't rush us. He used the paperwork that we submitted when we arrived to lead the conversation. My husband and I are working toward a better relationship yet it was good to talk with Paul as a mediator, and he helped start the conversation that we can continue as a couple. If needed, we'd hire Paul again without hestitation.

Matthew has been a really great counselor to work with. He brings empathy and excitement to our relationship counseling sessions, and provides much needed insight to moments when we get caught up in our historic relational patterns. Our sessions are a good mix of hard work and play. Matthew always has ideas and exercises we can do to work with the material that arises. He is communicative and professional.

About

I am a licensed marriage family therapist who specializes in hypnotic approaches to change. This may or may not include formal hypnosis. I work with couples, families and adults over the age of 12. I do collaborative work, helping you achieve your aims and desires for yourself and helping you grow new ways of doing things, so that you can achieve them. Sliding scale is discussed and accepted. I am helping you to awaken that wisdom and direction which is your birthright, so that you can be free of encumbering thoughts, behaviors and relationships.

About

I am seeking an internship that allows me to finish my degree in counseling psychology and licensure. Part-time or full-time is desired.

About

As a private college counselor, I provide college counseling and essay editing services to help aspiring high school students who want to gain admission to the Ivy League, Stanford, MIT, Caltech, UChicago, and other competitive universities. My stellar track record of getting students into the top 6 schools (HYPSMC) in the country speaks for itself, as I help students from all backgrounds tackle the application process. I have helped even under-achieving, subpar students gain admission to one of the top six schools through a rigorous application process that helps the applicant to stand out from his or her peers. I graduated with a degree in economics from Princeton University.

About

Basically I use a lot of self-disclosure in my discussions. I put myself in the person's shoes, since I am an AVID SKINNER disciple and subscriber to his philosophies! I also utilize the Maslow's Hierarchies of needs to demonstrate the fulfillment of life to higher degree. That being said, I then put the above techniques to use for the problems and crisis that this individual is encountering at this stage of his or her life. Making a more personal approach to define and hopefully resolve their challenged crisis.

About

As a full-service college consultant, I specialize in the application process and the requirements for college campuses. I seek to streamline the process for students and their family by organizational help and time line creation, teacher recommendation letter organization, essay guidance, and application assistance to help facilitate a student’s analytical processes as he or she considers what is best for learning interests and campus environments. Formerly a high school classroom teacher, my style is casual, fun and low key. Students know that I am available to them at any time and regularly keep in touch with them via texting and even Facebook. Whether a student is seeking tutoring for an academic subject such as English or history, or needs assistance preparing for the ACT and SAT, I tailor my tutoring to meet the students' individual needs. The fact that my students continue to stay in touch and seek out services after they have gone to college attests to the fact that they know I care about helping them make the most of their education.

About

About

I offer dynamic and transformational counseling for individuals, couples, and families. I use mindfulness-based, somatic, hypnotherapy, transpersonal, and cognitive-behavioral approaches to deal with unwanted patterns or life issues. I come from the perspective that though pain is often inevitable, suffering is not. I have over 25 years of private practice in the Santa Cruz area.

About

One of the reasons why it's so convenient to see me for counseling is the flexibility that Heidi F Yoder, mft Life Skills Stylist allows you. This is delivered in two ways: * Accessibility - did you find that you'll be out of town during your appointment? We can use Skype or use other forms of online therapy. Studies have shown online therapy to be just as, and sometimes more, effective than in-person therapy. Working with teens or those struggling with depression, getting outside and doing eco-therapy can be a good idea. Studies have shown that information taken in under the influence of endorphins (caused by both exercise and nature) is learned more deeply, like the difference between hearing something, writing something, and repeating something back. * Diversification - types of services offered. An individual may be seeing me for skill development work that initiates a fulfillment career change. Later, that same individual may bring his partner in for some work on communication theory to help resolve some of their core issues. During this work, some material about their child may come up, and it becomes obvious that later, a few laser-focus CBT sessions would greatly benefit the teen's patterns of thinking around managing expectations and organization, in a way that brings her/him positive outcomes.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
