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 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.
We decided to try Connect2 Marriage as an engagement encounter and we've loved it. We would strongly recommend them.
My approach is based on creating a collaborative relationship to help you illuminate unconscious barriers that keep you feeling stuck or unsatisfied in life. I work from a depth perspective, which means I aim to help you address your therapeutic needs from the roots of your issues.
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 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!
I have just started but feel I am working toward my goals effectively
I use proven, professional counseling methods to help people through difficult times.
I have worked with Don Waxman for almost two years and found him to be the most effective therapist I have used. Don has the ability to be empathetic and directive in a way that works for me. His use of somatic tools with me has be dramatic in my self exploration and healing. He is very knowledgeable and creative and has great set of tools to help you get to your goals.
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!
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.
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.
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 provide individual, couple, and family counseling.

CIP's mission is to provide quality mental health counseling services to low-income individuals and families in Marin, so that they may re-establish mental and emotional well-being and live satisfying and productive lives. CIP offers short and long-term outpatient psychotherapy on a sliding-scale fee basis to adults, children, families, and couples who would otherwise be unable to afford such services. For over 30 years, CIP has played a vital role in the continuum of service in Marin County and acts as a safety net for those in need. Last year, CIP provided an agency a total of over 8,000 hours to more than 750 unduplicated clients, 85% of whom did not have Medi-Cal, and 80% of whom had monthly incomes of $2,500 or less. Clients received help with anxiety and depression, divorce and parental stress, issues affecting young children, domestic violence, abuse, and homelessness. More than 18% were children between 6 and 18 years of age.
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 have worked as a licensed therapist since 1984. I am passionate about being present with clients and helping them to transition through difficult situations. I love to help them be more present in their lives and more loving to themselves and others. I work with people who want to explore themselves and improve the quality of their lives. Sometimes, they dont feel as alive in their lives as they deserve to. I work with them to understand their needs. Its important for people to find what gives their life energy, joy, and passion what makes life meaningful for each individual. We all need to claim our own meaning.
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 provide services in Reiki and psychological counseling for individuals and couple's therapy to children and adults. Bach Flower Therapy is administered when needed according to the specific cases. I have accessible rates. I am available only by appointment.
Our thoughts create our feelings! Our feelings create our urges! Our urges create our actions! Our actions create our life! We each arrive here whole, perfect, complete. Somewhere along our journey, we get caught up in the events of our story and the soup of societal thought; we fall into the illusion that we have somehow become less perfect, less valuable, less capable and less loveable, or that we got stuck in traffic and werent at the port when our ship came in. We find ourselves with any number of unwanted conditions of dis-ease in our lives, wondering what the heck happened. There is hope! There is a solution! By identifying our hidden beliefs and replacing them with the spiritual truth about ourselves, we release the illusions. We are healed, and our lives are transformed. It is my great pleasure to give you the tools, the guidance and the support you need to transform your thinking and to claim your birthright of unlimited abundance in every area of your life. Spiritual counseling differs from traditional counseling or psychotherapy, in that the primary focus is on the here and now versus the past. I work with with you through the application of spiritual principles, asking compassionate questions and actively listening, to identify hidden beliefs which block your awareness of truth, that you are a perfect individualized expression of spirit. When your hidden beliefs are surfaced, I work through the art and skill of spiritual mind treatment, at the level of mind, to reveal truth. When truth is revealed, healing occurs. I have specific expertise in the areas of addiction, LGBTQ, relationships and past trauma issues. I provide individual, couples, family and group counseling and visioning, as well as group and business consulting, counseling, and visioning. My clients express that my gentle, down to earth, practical approach provide a safe environment in which they can honestly invest in their healing process and learn effective tools for continuing to grow far beyond the counseling experience. I am available to meet with you at the Center for Spiritual Living - Santa Rosa and by phone. I am also open to traveling to your location on a case by case basis. Namasté. Rafe A.
