“"Caring is the greatest thing, caring matters most." These last words of Frederich Von Hugel have been a guiding focus of my professional and personal life. I believe my role as a therapist is to listen, be of service, be available; and to share personally when appropriate. I offer a limited practice with a depth of quality and insight gathered from extensive life experience and training. I use an eclectic approach that draws from many disciplines and trainings. My goal is to create a safe alliance with you or your child where change can take place, be supported and nurtured.

Marriage & Family Therapist, LMFT
“I have a passion for working with people who are hurting and trying to figure out how to cope with life's struggles. I do not believe we are meant to barely survive, just getting by, day to day. I believe we are meant to thrive and find ways to enjoy life, even when going through hard times. I also believe mental illness such as depression is a healing emotion alerting us something must change in order to nurture our self. I would love to meet you and see if we make a good fit.

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.

Gordon M Wheeler, Psychologist  in Santa Cruz
“For many years I've practiced therapy and coaching out of a relational model, drawing on Gestalt therapy's dynamic principles of support, experiment, deep contact, dialogue, and meaning-making. My work has ranged across all ages, individuals, couples, families, groups, teaching/training, and organizational clients. Growing older myself, I'm particularly drawn now to working with people in the second half of life (50's, 60's and on), dealing with issues of relationships, intimacy, career change and refocus, changing families, making meaning and finding significance, and the losses (and gains) that come with age.
