Veda Ozelle, MA, MFT, Marriage & Family Therapist in Santa Cruz
You are seeking support, so the process of change has already begun!... yet finding the 'right' therapist is important. While many clinicians have similar skills to address your concerns, it's actually their personality, life experience, and ability to relate to YOU that determines the success of your therapy. Profile pictures and professional statements are helpful, but the best way to determine if it's a "good fit" is to speak in person! I offer a free 30-minute consultation and am happy to connect with you and answer your questions today.
I love this work and am passionate about helping you build tools for more effective living. Using a collaborative and solution-focused approach, your concerns will be addressed with compassion, empathy and sensitivity to your unique individual needs.
Life is too short to spend it feeling stuck... let's work together to get you UNSTUCK so you can feel joy and hope again. Change IS possible!
