Therapy has come a long way in understanding human feelings and relationships -- from the first ideas of Sigmund Freud to the new insight from electronic brain-imaging. Experts agree that the process of psychotherapy -- honest feeling and discussion of what really matters coupled with deep listening and an outside perspective -- helps our brains to grow into maturity and out of painful experiences. Counseling for adults allows us to use the thinking and feeling parts of our brain to change our old reactive patterns.
Some things are out of control; others are within our ability to change. Some say wisdom lies in knowing the difference -- and we would add that understanding oneself and taking action follows next. Our counselors are here to assist you in moving through changes in your family structure, stress, working through depression, facing anxiety, and other relationship issues. We talk with folks every day about work life balance, complications of sexuality, and how our family history impacts our lives today. Our clinicians are familiar with and utilize techniques like cognitive behavioral therapy and deeper dynamic approaches to help you make the changes you seek. We are here to help you work though whatever is on your mind.
More than ever before, more of us in our community are finding the courage and the words to express ourselves in ways that were often discouraged years ago. Our therapists have had great success assisting parents and children seeking to understand one another through important conversations. We respect the journey of the individual to understand oneself and find ways to live authentically. We welcome your call.
Our expert clinicians are available to take the next steps with you upon this journey. We are conveniently located between Campbell and San Jose, just off Highway 17 from Los Gatos. Call or email today to schedule your first appointment.
