Therapists in Santa Cruz

Carol Cochrane Bass, Marriage & Family Therapist  in Santa Cruz
Verified by Psychology Today
Marriage & Family Therapist, MA, LMFT
“Initiating therapy can be a daunting and challenging process, and that begins with selecting a therapist around whom you will feel comfortable, safe and respected. To help you with that process, I'll start by sharing a few things about myself. I became a therapist because I discovered that it was a large part of who I am. Even at an early age, I found that I was often the person others felt safe to let their guard down with - to share what was happening below the surface, and to seek out my advice.

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.

Marriage & Family Therapist, LMFT
“"Stuck." At some point in our lives, we all feel it. I help people link their desire for things to be different to the places they feel stuck, healthfully and effectively. You don't need to know how to change, we start with where you are. I like the Chinese proverb, "Acceptance and change are brothers, but acceptance is the older brother." By helping you learn to first accept where you are (even if now it seems impossible), suffering is naturally reduced and there is more energy and room for growth. You get to like yourself now AND change.
