Deborah Smilovitz Foster  in Santa Barbara
“Each of us passes through struggles that are difficult to cope with. In working together to form a therapeutic relationship we can become healthier and more able to react more skillfully to the challenges that present themselves. My work with children, adolescents, adults, couples and families is based off a strong clinical foundation and woven together with compassion, respect and caring. By resolving some of our issues we can become balanced and find improved overall health (mentally, physically, spiritually, financially, emotionally).

Marriage & Family Therapist, PhD, LMFT
“Jungian psychotherapy takes the unconscious seriously and listens to it. Most people are already attempting to live up to their potential; this type of psychotherapy can propel and accelerate that growth. Your challenges with work and relationships often hold the keys to an organic transformation when looked at with new perspectives, based on the ancient wisdom to "know thyself" and develop greater trust in yourself. If you've already learned that your will power alone isn't working, you owe it to yourself to explore the ecology of the underlying roots of what appear as unsolvable problems in your life.

Marriage & Family Therapist, MA, MFT, NNTS
“By combining Nutrition/Neurotransmitter balancing with Psychotherapy I feel my approach is a perfect combination for those struggling with depression, anxiety, eating disorders, weight loss, substance abuse and ADD. Supporting brain chemistry while doing therapy makes therapy a solution rather than a band-aid. I use an integrative approach with clients rather than a tunnel-vision approach. If our body and brain are not healthy, our relationships cannot be either.

What I bring to the therapeutic alliance is empathy, honesty, humor and open mindedness. My job is to help facilitate the change my clients are seeking. I provide a safe therapeutic environment that will lead to lasting contentment and hope for the future.

“I am a licensed (in 4 states) clinical psychologist. If you are motivated to do your part, what I will bring to our relationship is my passion for psychology which is as fervent today as over 30 years ago when I hung out my first shingle. I believe psychotherapy is both an art and a science. Art, because it is my job to figure out how to help you arrive at your pinnacle given your unique temperament and situational challenge. And science, because psychotherapy is continually researched, tested and analyzed to demonstrate its reliability and validity.

“Are you struggling in a relationship especially where substance abuse is an issue? Would you like to share your feelings with an older, experienced Santa Barbara counselor? If yes, then consider calling and let's set up a time to talk. Relationships are periodically challenging. In fact most people do experience difficulties from time to time. If you are going through a hard time now, that does not mean it will last forever. Meeting with a counselor who provides a safe and non-judgmental place to share, can help to defuse tension and resolve differences.

“We are living in very stressful times that challenge us to find meaning. Often the very painful issues that bring people to therapy -- anxiety and/or depression, difficulty with relationships, life-cycle transitions, trauma, illness, aging, lack of purpose and belonging -- present a wonderful opportunity for exploration, growth, and development. I especially enjoy working with individuals in transition, whether in early adulthood, mid-life, or the "third chapter" of older age and have a special place in my heart for those who struggle with feelings of not fitting in, living non-traditional lives or in non-traditional relationships.

“The path of self-discovery may be one of the most profound journeys on which we embark. I believe that walking this path takes two things: developing a loving and accepting relationship with ourselves as well as being witnessed and supported by another. My role as therapist is to help guide and support your unique process of self-discovery. Along this path we can bring awareness to and heal our self-destructive and limiting beliefs, addictive behaviors and unhealthy relationships and grow our acceptance of self so that we can move towards a life of fulfillment, purpose and ease.

Depression is by far the most pervasive feature of the illness, and the manic phase is usually a mix of irritability, anger, and depression, with or without euphoria. The elation may manifest as unusual energy and overconfidence, playing out in bouts of overspending or promiscuity.
