Mindfulness-based (MBCT) Therapists in Santa Cruz

Verified by Psychology Today
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.

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.

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.

Marriage & Family Therapist, MA, LMFT
“I think we've all been there: knowing something needs to change but not sure what to do or which way to go. Difficult times can overwhelm a person's ability to move forward in life. You may feel stuck, doing things in ways that aren't working anymore as you come up against problem relationships with family, friends or coworkers. I often work with clients who find themselves or a loved one in trouble with alcohol, drugs, or other compulsive behaviors, in an unhealthy attempt to cope that just makes things worse in the long run.
