When my fiancee and I were in search of a pre-marital counselor, we didn't know what to expect. We just knew it was best practice to do pre-marital counseling, so we did. The minute we met with Kim for an intro session, she was a kind, comforting presence that was able to get both me and my partner to easily share - something rare for my partner. Throughout our time working with Kim, she helped us hone in on issues within our relationship while discovering things about ourselves - individually - that we didn't realize were negatively affecting us. What we loved most about Kim was that she didn't just talk us through every problem we were working to solve but provided us with tools that we will be able to use for years to come. In our sessions, Kim provided great counseling with a sincere intention to set our marriage off on a strong foundation of self-awareness and clear communication to build our relationship upon. Thank you, Kim, for all of your guidance and support!
We decided to try Connect2 Marriage as an engagement encounter and we've loved it. We would strongly recommend them.
I highly recommend Adrian for psychotherapy. Adrian provides a warm and welcoming presence, which allows a space for deep reflection. With Adrian's ability to deeply listen and insightful thinking, he provides a space for long lasting change to occur. I highly recommend Adrian as a therapist for all those who seek to create change in their life.
I have known Melissa a long time and she is one of the best therapists that I have worked with. She is patient, understanding, and is a great listener. Melissa is highly skilled and has been able to help me work through a variety of issues. She has a clear passion for her career and truly cares about each of her clients. If you are looking for a therapist, look no further. I absolutely recommend giving her a call!
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.
I use proven, professional counseling methods to help people through difficult times.
Lauren is a great listener and really takes the time to evaluate your personality and understand your needs and wants so that she can find the best possible matches for you. Lauren is very intuitive and easy to talk to. I've definitely had my share of toxic relationships, and with her expertise in counseling, she has great advice for creating lasting, healthy relationships. I highly recommend Lauren and can't wait for more matches!
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.
Dr. Russo helped me get to the heart of my issues quickly and supportively. I've dealt with depression off and on over many years and she's been my choice every time for support and counsel, guidance and wisdom. Often, Dr. Russo would recommend titles of useful books and/or authors that I've since added to my library. They've proven time and again to be great resources helping me deal with the process of healing and wellness. I'm eternally grateful for working with Dr. Russo and will forever value the skills she helped me develop.
Rebecca was professional, interesting and really was a great addition to our party.
I provide psycho-social education. I will listen to all your traumas, dramas, problems and alignments, but I will also provide you with empirical (scientifically proven) methods to lead a well-functioning life. I just don't talk, I impart the knowledge for you to DO!

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.
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.
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.
I am collaborative, and I care deeply about my clients. I am creative, and I am first and foremost interested in offering relief. Well-being is something I believe should be available today, not ten years down the line. My clients have told me that while they appreciate my deep empathy, they also value my analytical ability to help them make connections and offer fresh perspectives. They have expressed relief at finding our sessions filled with humor and a light, gentle inquisitive approach. I offer individual, couples and family sessions. I also facilitate a chronic pain session to a well-being group. I excel at helping people through transitions and teaching couples how to nurture, heal, and/or add a sense of vitality and expansiveness to their relationships.

I am seeking an internship that allows me to finish my degree in counseling psychology and licensure. Part-time or full-time is desired.
I provide compassionate support and understanding in a comfortable and safe environment. I have successfully helped many people find relief from depression and anxiety and enhanced their relationships. Obstacles and challenges become opportunities for growth and fulfillment, while emotional pain and confusion become clarity and wisdom by incorporating the mind, body, and spirit in a practical approach to growth and change. Anger is transformed into compassion as we learn to see things without judgements and distortions. Fear dissolves into acceptance, allowing us to be fully alive and present to experience joy and happiness. I utilize an experiential mix of styles including cognitive behavioral, psychodynamic, humanistic and family systems, blended with mindfulness practice. The process gently but effectively enhances your capacity to enjoy life, and resolves old traumas and hidden beliefs that keep you from living as a free human being. I bring to my work years of spiritual practice and meditation, as well as my formal education in clinical psychology. In addition, I am associated with the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) as both a provider educator and a family to family educator, helping mental health staff improve their skills for working with individuals and families traumatized by mental illness, and helping educate families to cope with psychiatric illness.
