Eva Rider, MA, LMFT, CHT, Marriage & Family Therapist in Santa Cruz
In these times, stress can trigger old traumas and make navigating life's challenges difficult. If you find yourself in a crisis situation that you have failed to resolve? If you feel lost, seeking a sense of self, creativity, passion or direction? If you feel trapped in patterns that don't reflect who you are becoming? Are you searching for a path to inhabit your authentic, creative self? For 20+ years, I have aided individuals resolve crises, discover direction, passion and soul. We begin in the present to find creative avenues to expressing authenticity. If you are seeking meaning, depth and creativity, please contact me.
I use a Jungian depth psychological lens and use Dreamwork, hypnotherapy, BodySoul synthesis, trauma techniques and creative process in working with issues of grief, loss, trauma, life transitions, crisis, relationship and identity. I bring extensive training, experience and dedication to our work.
The basis of my work lies in creating a relationship based on compassion, trust, respect and deep exploration of the soul's call for meaning. A metaphoric lens applied to dreams and imagination are powerful tools in awakening natural creativity and revealing how to transform life's wounds to rediscover our uniqueness, vitality and wholeness.
