“Do you want to feel better without conforming to someone else’s idea of wellness to do so? Are you looking for ways to help your children without them feeling that something is wrong with them and needs to be fixed?

“I have spent the past 25 years of my career learning about and treating men, women and adolescents with disordered eating. Research shows that early and aggressive treatment of eating disorders provides the best chance for a full recovery. I am therefore very passionate about early intervention. I have done extensive training in evidence based therapies, such as Family Based "Maudsley" Therapy , Therapeutic Meal Support Groups, Enhanced CBT, DBT, and Intuitive Eating/Health at Every Size. I am a member of CAMFT, APTED, and IAEDP and am committed to ongoing training, completing twice the required licensing CEU's annually.

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.

Donald Seldeen, Psychologist  in Santa Cruz
Verified by Psychology Today
Psychologist, PhD, Clinica, Psychol
“Everyone has an innate ability to enjoy a life balanced with love, work and play. When personal issues and uncomfortable feelings block this ability, we need to grow and heal. My calm, gentle nature and use of humor helps people explore and resolve these blocks. Humor is important for relaxing with light-hearted laughter and making shifts in one’s life are intertwined. I’ve helped numerous couples repair broken relationships, heal hurts and resentments, while reestablishing meaningful communication. A sense of safety, relief, and a softening of the heart occurs as each partner feels heard and understood. Blaming stops and problem solving begins.

Lara Lenington, Psychologist  in Santa Cruz
“The heart of my work is compassion and curiosity. It is my goal to instill these into my clients. I believe each person is innately health seeking. Each of us can find our way off this healthy path for very important and powerful reasons. We work together to understand these reasons with deep compassion. With curiosity we look to discover ways to get back on the path to the healthiest self. I discovered over the past decade that compassion allows us to move on and that with curiosity new choices emerge which can allow for deep, profound and lasting change.

Genevieve Friedberg, Marriage & Family Therapist  in Santa Cruz
“Do you want more ease, joy, and meaning in your life? Therapy can help. Aside from having the obvious goal of relieving anxiety, confusion, or pain and suffering, therapy can profoundly enrich your life. The more we befriend, understand, and accept ourselves just as we are, the more we can respond to the challenges that come our way from choice rather than habitual reaction. To facilitate this I offer an openhearted, authentic presence along with mindfulness-based tools that promote self-awareness, self-compassion, and the process of healing.
