Marriage & Family Therapist, MA, LMFT, CHT
“I believe strongly in the resiliency of the human spirit, the ability to grow through adversity, and learn new ways of responding that lead to well-being. Learning skills to regulate one's emotions, quiet the mind, reduce self-criticism, and increase self-compassion move clients toward happiness and greater self-acceptance.Gaining a broader picture, giving new meaning to the past and discovering the gift of strengths within often emerges from the transformative work we do together. I believe that we all go through difficult times in life. Asking for support is not easy, it takes courage and strength to do so.

Marriage & Family Therapist, LMFT
“"Stuck." At some point in our lives, we all feel it. I help people link their desire for things to be different to the places they feel stuck, healthfully and effectively. You don't need to know how to change, we start with where you are. I like the Chinese proverb, "Acceptance and change are brothers, but acceptance is the older brother." By helping you learn to first accept where you are (even if now it seems impossible), suffering is naturally reduced and there is more energy and room for growth. You get to like yourself now AND change.

Desiree Foxworthy, Marriage & Family Therapist  in Santa Cruz
Verified by Psychology Today
Marriage & Family Therapist, MA, LMFT
“I think we've all been there: knowing something needs to change but not sure what to do or which way to go. Difficult times can overwhelm a person's ability to move forward in life. You may feel stuck, and not sure why. Relationships may not be going well, whether with a spouse/partner or friends and coworkers. Often, people find themselves in trouble with substance use, in an unhealthy attempt to cope that just makes things worse in the long run. Sometimes only a few sessions with a therapist can provide clarity and sense of relief.

Verified by Psychology Today
Marriage & Family Therapist, LMFT
“Life! It's perplexing and mysterious. Challenging and full of unexpected turns. Our fast-paced world presents us with demands that stress our coping abilities and make even the simplest of things seem overwhelming. But life can also be full of contentment and connection. When we acknowledge and explore what is upsetting, we have the potential to expand self-awareness and create a circle of compassion for ourselves and others. This leads to discovering our innate strength and resilience so that we are able to move forward, navigating choices that support the life we want to live.

Marriage & Family Therapist, MA, LMFT
“Initiating therapy can be a daunting and challenging process, and that begins with selecting a therapist around whom you will feel comfortable, safe and respected. To help you with that process, I'll start by sharing a few things about myself. I became a therapist because I discovered that it was a large part of who I am. Even at an early age, I found that I was often the person others felt safe to let their guard down with - to share what was happening below the surface, and to seek out my advice.
