Rudi Lion, MFT, Marriage & Family Therapist in Santa Barbara
Therapy is a rare opportunity to be profoundly understood by another person.If you are looking for that deep understanding and a place to examine your life, I would be honored to work with you. I offer a safe and caring environment with an open, compassionate and interactive approach. My style is mostly eclectic, however my work is informed by ecotherapy,family system theory, attachment theory and the neuropsychology of trauma.
Together we will explore the impact of your past on the present; yet because insight alone is often not sufficient in bringing about change, we will also develop concrete tools to help you live a more productive and joyful life. A life that is truly yours!
The first step is often the hardest one! Come for a consultation and we will discover whether we are a good fit. "I cannot say whether things will get better if we change; what I can say is that they must if they are to get better." G.C. Lichtenberg
