Clinical Social Work/Therapist, LCSW
“Something real and important has brought you here for help. Finding the right therapist can be challenging. You want some one you can feel comfortable with and some one who has skills and experience. In my 12 years in this field, I have supported people with many issues including anxiety, depression, addiction, parenting issues, life transitions and others. Psychotherapy can help change patterns, let go of old habits and find new responses that bring more health and happiness. Working together to build a sense of trust and safety, we create the possibility for greater choice and freedom.

Lara Lenington, Psychologist  in Santa Cruz
“The heart of my work is compassion and curiosity. It is my goal to instill these into my clients. I believe each person is innately health seeking. Each of us can find our way off this healthy path for very important and powerful reasons. We work together to understand these reasons with deep compassion. With curiosity we look to discover ways to get back on the path to the healthiest self. I discovered over the past decade that compassion allows us to move on and that with curiosity new choices emerge which can allow for deep, profound and lasting change.

Ann Bolger, Psychologist  in Santa Cruz
“I believe in the resiliency of the human spirit; that ability to overcome adversity and personal struggles, and reach a place of more healthy, balanced living. In a safe, accepting environment we work together to identify the origin of the problem, your coping style, and explore what change would look like. Psychotherapy is a learning process whereby insight is gained into what keeps unhealthy patterns in place, ultimately uncovering new ways of being that yield more balanced ways of living and more satisfying relationships. Please see my website for more information about me and my practice.

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 men new to therapy feel at ease.

“In my work with individuals, couples, children, teens and families I strive to create a warm, nurturing and compassionate environment for personal exploration and healing. In this space all parts of you are welcome. I see therapy as a collaboration where you and I partner to create an achievable plan to improve your relationships, increase your sense of vitality, and work towards your personal goals. In my work, I have witnessed how life's challenges can create emotional scars that then consciously or unconscious run our lives. These scars can manifest as a variety of mental health and relational issues.

“"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, LMFT
“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.
