Mary Blair Bashford, Psychologist  in Santa Cruz
“I like to work with clients struggling with issues around depression, anxiety, stress, illness, trauma or relationship problems. Working together we examine and try to understand how their life experiences influenced current thinking and behavioral patterns. Most patterns were developed for good reasons at the time. Understanding this “depathologizes” behavior and opens up possibilities for updated perspectives and opportunities for change. We work towards developing increased clarity in self-perceptions and behavioral strategies than enhance psychological and physical well-being.
