Louisa Squires, MA, LMFT, Marriage & Family Therapist in Santa Cruz
Feeling STUCK? I'd like to help. Maybe you're struggling with an important relationship, tired of feeling stressed or depressed all the time, wondering why a past trauma keeps haunting you or why you continue to do those things that keep you from being the person you want to be. My clients are teens and adults who are seeking greater satisfaction and meaning in their lives. People see me for different reasons--healing, growth, life transitions, clarity. Whatever the problem that brings you to therapy, you'll find my office to be a safe, supportive and accepting space, a sanctuary.
I'll set you at ease at our first acquaintance. Together we'll identify what you want to achieve in therapy and how to reach your goals in the shortest possible time.
The heart of therapy is a caring, confidential and authentic connection. I bring a calm, mature and practical perspective and integrate the latest research on effective treatments. Please call me for a free initial telephone consultation to answer questions and to see if it feels like a good fit.
