Therapists in Santa Cruz County

Christian Counseling Center - Santa Cruz, Marriage & Family Therapist Intern  in Santa Cruz
“My life experience includes software engineering at Microsoft, church ministry as a deacon, hosting a radio program on psycho-spiritual topics, and my current doctoral research on the impact of digital technology on the psyche. My educational background includes degrees in theology and psychology. Knowing when one or the other should be emphasized in counseling is an important piece of discernment that I bring to every counseling session. Counseling begins with a safe confidential setting. I view every session as a sacred encounter with God incarnate. Every client is "wonderfully made" in the image of God.

Marriage & Family Therapist, MA, MS, LMFT
“Specialty: "When Mindfulness Doesn't Work." I help find your strengths (You do have them!). You learn to be "present," but not thru mere "understanding" or "insight." We'll find what caused your original suffering that prevents you from making healthy adult decisions. Identifying, facing, & dealing w/ causes stops having to learn & re-learn "self-control." It's the key to sustained healing. Children are always right; they just don't always know how to express their needs in ways adults understand. The key to family healing requires parents to listen to their children & modify their parenting. Children then naturally change.

Identifying and integrating unconscious beliefs, trauma and self defeating responses can help develop emotional resilience, greater self acceptance and happiness. When we feel truly heard, seen and understood a transformative power ignites and we can risk being different and more open.

Marriage & Family Therapist, MA, MFT
“You are seeking support, so the process of change has actually already begun... yet finding the 'right' therapist is important. While many clinicians have similar skills with which to address your concerns, it's actually their personality, life experience, and ability to relate to YOU that determines the success of your therapy. Profile pictures and professional statements are helpful, but the best way to determine if it's "a good fit" is to speak in person! I offer a free 30-minute consultation and am happy to connect with you and answer your questions today!

Marriage & Family Therapist, MA, LMFT, SEP
“Are you suffering from the effects of trauma in your life? Are you finding that talk therapy alone is not shifting patterns of mood and behavior? I am a holistic psychotherapist and a Somatic Experiencing Practitioner (SEP) and I specialize in understanding your nervous system. Trauma is destabilizing and leads to nervous system dysregulation and a sense of the loss of self. I incorporate SE to facilitate a sense of boundary, containment, and orientation to the present moment. I use a non-pathologizing perspective and view symptoms within the context of experience. I've found SE to be useful for individuals, couples, and families.

Marriage & Family Therapist, LMFT, MA, PsyD
“Blending conventional and alternative approaches I empower children, adolescents, and adults to reach their therapeutic goals.

This language expresses who they are and what they need in order to live a more functional and productive life. My mission is to interpret that language and offer innovative strategies that foster positive growth and maturity. It is not only a challenge to change, grow, and learn. . . As a member of the human race, I feel it is an obligation!
