Lorena Parker, Marriage & Family Therapist  in Santa Cruz
“Empathy is the root of my work. People usually seek therapy due to depression, anxiety or pain regarding relationships. In an atmosphere of warmth and compassion, my goal is to help you deal with painful emotions and to understand and accept yourself. I am an exquisite listener with an ability to soothe others pain. Self Psychology is the theory which informs my work. It's based on seeing the world through the other person's eyes. I've also had two years in a study program at the CG Jung Institute and am a 30 year practitioner of meditation.

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.

Marriage & Family Therapist, MA, MFT
“The choice of a therapist is deeply personal, and can be difficult to make from the cursory information on a website. Thus, I offer a reduced-rate introductory session, during which you and I can get to know each other and discuss how our work together can benefit you. I have come to see that talking about problems, while important, is not necessarily enough to solve them. Thus, I provide tools to get at the root of your troubles, techniques to understand and change them, and guidance to help you steer your course to a more joyful and fulfilling life.

“Sometimes life presents us with difficult, painful, or even seemingly unbearable challenges. Sometimes we, ourselves, can be a source of the pain and challenges. Either way, we must be able to access our resources -- inner and outer -- to cope with the pain, the imbalance, the overwhelm, the stuckness ... and, ultimately, to learn, heal, and grow from our experiences..... My job is to help you best utilize resources you already have and to offer you more tools to help you change undesirable patterns in yourself and your life.

Jennifer Alexander, Marriage & Family Therapist  in Santa Cruz
“If you or your child has anxiety, ADHD, or depression, you probably feel frustrated and overwhelmed. You want the best for your self and your family and you may have reservations about using medications. You don't have to struggle alone anymore. I want to hear your experience and help you have more harmony in your life and in your home. While talk therapy can be supportive, some issues are brain based and need a different kind of guidance. Neurofeedback is a brain training program that supports you or your child in changing these patterns.

Marriage & Family Therapist Intern, MA
“I'm a warm, direct and active counselor. I help individuals and couples find strategies that work to create meaningful change in their lives--to water and fertilize this precious life. Sometimes life is complicated and difficult! Relationships, work, life transitions, loss, growing older conspire to sink us into moments of confusion, sadness, and worry. Yet, astonishingly, wrestling with life's challenges can lead to growth and more happiness--especially true when we work on our relationships with ourselves and others. My creative, open & direct style combined with my corporate background especially helps people new to therapy feel at ease.

“I specialize in the treatment of disordered eating and eating disorders. I help those who cannot find balance between food, activity, and life. I am a firm believer in intuitive eating and health at every size. I teach and challenge my clients to approach food and health differently than the standard American population. As a result my clients are able to become the 'normal' or 'intuitive' eaters that they have always secretly (or not so secretly) envied. You too can achieve Food. Mind. Body. Balance.
