Mark Christopher Yates, PhD, Psychologist in Pasadena
When it is overwhelming to be faced with life's many challenges, having an experienced and compassionate ally on your side can help you get through the tough times and also begin a process of growth and discovery. Seeking psychotherapy is a courageous step to create meaningful and lasting change. Dealing with the end of a relationship or the loss of a loved one can leave you feeling paralyzed; Uncertainty about how to face into the fears about career, school, and relationships can leave you feeling stuck; Occasionally one may just wake up feeling depressed, anxious or in physical pain.
Psychotherapy is a safe space where we can discover together the meaning of what has happened and facilitate growth. Together we will explore what is hindering you and unravel how and why things have become how they are, so you can have new freedom to live how you would like.
Recognizing that you want to feel more connected and fulfilled in your life is a tremendous step, and always requires courage and effort. If you want to take that step, I would like to help navigate those life crossroads or to make it through spiritual challenges or life changes.
