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!
Scientifically grounded. Emotionally intelligent. Shannon helped me get unstuck. Seeing any counselor at all was a big deal for me. I had bad experiences with them in the past. Not only was she able to put me at ease, not only was her advice concrete and useful, she helped me explore my concerns in a way that was as stunning as it was fun. It was more helpful, more quickly, and more enjoyably than any other counseling experience I've ever had.
I started rediscovering myself when I discovered Andri. I called for her help two years ago when I was feeling lost and unsure about my career and life purpose. Her unique coaching method and healing process were invaluable and exactly what I needed on the movement forward. I gave her my full trust and in return I got priceless information about myself and my world, whom she turned upside down with her grounded, positive and inspiring counseling. I am now a happy freelancer moving closer to fulfilling my dreams and I thank her for that! Shes not just a life coach for me any more she is a coach for a lifetime and I know I cannot recommend her enough!
We decided to try Connect2 Marriage as an engagement encounter and we've loved it. We would strongly recommend them.
Loving kindness, such a blessing to work with Shannon
Worked with Susan Evans, RN in an intensive partial hospitalization program where she was the psychiatric nurse for the entire program. Her skill, expertise, compassion, experience and humor were great assets and greatly appreciated by staff and clients alike! A terrific health care professional, with unlimited energy and a wide variety of talents.
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.
Mara Dubey is as good a therapist as you can find. She is truly skilled at building relationships with her clients that foster deep understanding and positive change. If you decide to go with her services, you can rest assure that you'll be in caring, competent hands.
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.
Rebecca was professional, interesting and really was a great addition to our party.
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.
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!
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.
Sherry was a great tutor. 2 hours for 20$ was not bad and she went through pronunciation, numbers, weekdays and even travel tips! I think anyone thinking of taking Chinese should first have a class with Sherry to get a feel for the language and how interesting it can be.
I founded Be Love Community Counseling to provide safe, healing space for people who have been oppressed, marginalized or have an identity outside of the dominant culture. Historic trauma and past hurts may show up as having challenges in relationships, depression, anxiety, anger management issues, low self-esteem, underachievement, oppositional behaviors, etc. You may think that something is wrong with you while what you're experiencing may actually be a result of something that has happened to you or your ancestors. Therapy is empowering as you may increase awareness about what is keeping you from freedom to live the life you desire. We may meet for a brief period, and you'll learn and practice coping skills, or we can take time needed to focus on the root of the problems and identify the best solutions for you. You may gain deeper knowledge of your true self and what creates joy and ease. I use an "eclectic" approach to personalize counseling to meet the unique needs of the individuals who I serve. This means I use a variety of different treatment modalities including, but are not limited to eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR), family systems, solution-focused brief therapy, play, sand tray, expressive arts, spiritual, narrative, mindfulness, psychodynamic and humanistic therapies. Issues that may be addressed in counseling are many, but I focus on growing your strengths and supporting you to live the life that you desire. I don't pretend to have all answers, but I'm honest and will share if I can help.
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.
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.

I am a certified community mediator, a certified anger management trainer (level II) and a credentialed adult education instructor. I provide family and individual education and counseling in anger management, conflict resolution, parenting, communication and stress management. I have been teaching court-directed anger management and parenting classes for the past 10 years.
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.
