Shannon has a rare gift as a counselor as she is able to combine good practical advice with an empathic, sensitive presence. She combines a scientific and intuitive approach in her work. Her use of metrics to provide demonstrable results provides an experimental and empirical grounding to counseling that is rarely found in the field. She has a knowledge of the lifestyle factors that lead to anxiety and depression such as diet and sleep as well as the ability to use techniques such as Internal Family Systems to work with parts of the psyche. I chose to work with Shannon at a difficult time in my life because I felt that her compassion combined with her intuitive skills would be able to help me and help me quickly. I am a therapist myself and I am very choosy in who I work with. I have also referred people to Shannon for that reason. I would definitely recommend her services.

Adam is everything you want in a meditation coach. He is a warm, generous spirit. He is funny (hysterical really). He is impressively smart and knowledgeable. It is obvious when working with him or simply talking to him that he was studied diligently, put in years of hard word, learning about and practicing various contemplative traditions. He has lived in monasteries for years, and brings this background to his work. He will impress you in this way. However, it is his humility that you will feel when your session is over. As Maya Angelou said, "...people will never forget how you made them feel." Adam makes you feel welcomed, supported and inspired. I am grateful for his assistance in helping me establish a meditation practice (no small feat). But I am more grateful for our sessions together and the wisdom he's brought to my life. There are more pockets of peace and calm in my life, more places of dignity, less anxiety - little by little, more happiness.

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.

Andri really does give the word 'therapy' a whole new meaning. She creates a safe environment whereby issues are addressed to their core. She has a fantastic ability to identify with her clients issues and guides them to release and resolve anything that might trouble them. She is highly recommended and is considered by my self a 'new age' therapist that finds new and innovative ways to help in accordance with the core problem and circumstances of each person. 5 STAR

Tony was great for me, first, he’s an amiable guy that from our initial meeting, I could tell, was sincere about his desire to provide effective therapy. I’m a long distance runner and a business executive (and a CMT myself) and he knew exactly what to do to relieve stress and provide recovery from athletic activity. I happy I have finally found my regular therapist now. He even included indigenous techniques from his family’s heritage of healers from Mexico – I recommend him to you!

Meeting with James has given me a peacefulness that I haven't had in years. His unique therapeutic techniques during our session provided me with remarkable tools that are literally re-training my brain to help heal my anxiety and feelings of sadness. Finally I am moving forward with thanks to James.

Diana is an incredibly warm, empathic, playful, and nonjudgmental therapist. She really accepts you as you are and whole heartedly wants to make changes with you. I am always impressed by her ability to make sense of things and reflect it back to me in an alternative way. She has opened my eyes to so many patterns and defenses I have, and has done it in a way that felt kind and safe. I would really recommend her to anyone I know.

Anna is a clinician of unsurpassed compassion, wisdom, insight and genuine brilliance. She brings a tenderness and rich warmth to her practice, coupled with great skill and a passion to truly help the people with whom she works. She is informed by a social justice lens, grounded in constantly educating and doing the work herself, so that she can show up for her clients with highly developed cultural responsiveness without defensiveness. She is especially brilliant at working with folks in the LGBTQI community, sex workers, kinky folks, polyamorous folks and survivors of sexual violence.

I long for the days when my children were young. I could implement simple rules, limit commitments and my mistakes presented only minor consequences. Then my children became tweens, teens and young adults - all bets were off the table. One may think that parenting gets easier with time and experience; this is simply not true. Every child is different and needs to be understood for their individual strengths and weaknesses—and they need to be parented accordingly—there’s no one-size-fits-all here. As a mom of three there were those times when I was at my wits end. As they say, it takes a village and it totally does. We all can benefit from seeking advice, reassurance, and techniques that will help us become better parents. Dana is a warm, practical and thoughtful parenting coach. She not only advises parents on how to resolve a current issue, but also thinks through the long term implications of various approaches. She considers the whole child/person, not just the issue at hand. Her ability to understand kids and teens with Anxiety and ADHD and stress issues is unique. She is an excellent listener, and has that rare ability to offer advise without ever being judgmental. She helps you come up with solutions that fit your own parenting style and helps you lead with your values and integrity. Her kind and down-to-earth personality —and her sense of humor—made me feel totally at ease. She just keeps everything real and you feel like you’re being supported by a close friend. I highly recommend her, no matter what your goals or struggles may be.

Diana is the smartest, most insightful person I have ever met. She changed my life for the better and I highly recommend working with her. She never makes you feel like you are another person that she's collecting a check from. She really cares. See Diana if you are seeking some therapy. She is a great resource and I am sure she could help many different kinds of people.

About

Change is not easy! And yet sometimes, the pain of difficult feelings, a challenging situation or a rocky relationship can overwhelm everything else. At such times, you may feel compelled to try something new and to give up exhausted efforts at doing it alone. In counseling, you can find relief from anxious thoughts, painful relationships, and self-defeating behaviors. Therapy offers you the opportunity to heal from your past, better manage your present and develop more adaptive and fulfilling ways of being. In my practice, I see women, men, couples, families and groups of many ages and cultural backgrounds. No two situations are ever exactly alike. At the same time, there are some issues that I work with more than others, and these are listed here: * Trauma * Divorce * Anxiety * Lost Women (please see my website for more information) * Grief or Loss I am a certified practitioner of EMDR (eye movement desensitization reprocessing) and expressive arts therapy (EXA). EMDR is a mind-body technique that's used to process disturbing memories (i.e.: traumatic events) that contribute to unexplained fears and self-defeating beliefs and behaviors. EXA is a therapeutic modality that's dedicated to the use of creativity as a vehicle for change. For more information on these techniques and how they work, please feel free to visit my website. You are also welcome to contact me for a free 15-minute consultation.

I use EMDR, hypnosis, talk therapy, mindfulness, etc. I was trained as an engineer, which has led me to be very curious about what works in therapy. I'm down-to-earth and practical.

Psychotherapy is good for awakening joy and freedom. Your life issues are doorways to this awakening. My work is spiritually focused and body-oriented. I am a marriage and family therapist, as well as a somatic experiencing practitioner.

About

Besides being a licensed marriage and family therapist, I have experience in diverse areas of mental wellness that include traditional and non-traditional forms of healing. My approach is holistic. I primarily work with evidenced-based practices. I utilize psychic energy to facilitate desired change.

About

I provide counseling for individuals, couples and families who are struggling with transitions. You can explore developmental stages and dynamic techniques with a seasoned therapist of 20 years. This includes stress reduction, communication styles, family of origin and life cycle techniques.

About

I use a unique combination of techniques, skills and approaches which are evidenced based, that is, shown to be effective in a clinical setting. I have learned these practices over the course of twenty-one years. I have a lot of practice and experience. The practices I use are based on Interpersonal and dynamic psychotherapuetic techniques, Hypnotherapy, EFT (Emotioanl Freedom Teachnique), Transformational NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming) which is a therapuetic application method of NLP I learned from a program developed in part by a psychotherapist and NLP practitioner. I am also a Family Constellation Practitioner which is a very unique modality that allows me to adress issues of past generational entanglments that may be blocking you. These "entanglements" are literally ways in which, on a very deep, other than conscious level we have taken on problems and burdens on behalf of a parent, grandparent or other ancestor(s). Most recently, over the past five years I have applied my skills working in a clinical setting for a nonprofit organization within the Behavioral Health Services network of providers of San Francisco Ca. I have over 6000 hours of supervised clinical practice working with people with extreme life challenges (Chronic chemical dependance, mental health and physical health challenges). The techniques and practices I use proved very helpful to the people I worked with.

About

I provide individual, couple, family counseling and therapy; including school-age children. I can arrange group therapy as well. I do relational, behavioral, and life coaching; chemical (use/abuse and addiction) co-dependence, love and sex addictions.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
