Zoe Gerlach, MFT, Marriage & Family Therapist in Santa Cruz
My approach is based on the belief that you are naturally intelligent and resourceful. My role is to help bring out the skills, creativity, and strengths within you. The quality of your relationship with yourself and others leads to greater clarity and peace. Free yourself from the relational stress and conflict that so often occurs in love and work. I view the interrelationship of mind, heart, body, and spirit as rich sources of information. Compassion, insight, and intuition represent my style.
To better serve my clients, I offer both counseling and coaching services. My sessions integrate contemporary psychological approaches and traditional Eastern teachings. I provide a warm, compassionate environment so you feel safe as we work collaboratively.
I support you in freeing yourself from limiting beliefs, unproductive habits, and patterns that blocks life satisfaction. These blocks often manifest as depression or anxiety, and/or as issues with work or relationships. Clients who move through these issues often experience greater aliveness, creativity, and fulfillment in their lives.
