Gene Kranz, PhD, Psychologist in San Luis Obispo
What issue, concern, or potential do you want to explore? I offer a FREE 30 minute in-person or telephone consultation to talk and see if we are good fit! People typically seek out a psychologist when life, relationships, or work are not going well (often times they are all connected). Common issues are feeling afraid of failing (and succeeding) and hopeless that it, whatever "it" is (life, relationship, or work), won't change; feeling angry about not enough...confidence, relationship satisfaction, community, time, or money; sad about missing out on what truly matters in life!
These feelings and beliefs manifest as behaviors that psychologists sometimes label as anxiety, depression, and trauma. While I facilitate people moving through and releasing traditional reasons people seek out a psychologist (anxiety, depression, trauma, and problematic relationships), I also facilitate peoples' exploration of happiness, relationship success, and professional fulfillment.
Examples include: increasing self-esteem/confidence, self-awareness and authenticity, inner well-being, essence discovery and expression, conscious communication and relationship harmony, taking healthy responsibility and living in integrity, creativity and lifespan visioning, and taking pleasurable action steps to manifest your potential and/or resolve your concern or issue quickly.
