My therapeutic approach is person-centered. I utilize empathy, authenticity, acceptance, and trust in welcoming my clientele into a safe space. These principles have been the driving force of my practice for nearly 14 years. My approach allows my clients the opportunity to find their authentic selves. These therapeutic principles fit well with my other personal values and qualities of compassion, integrity, courage, gentleness, curiosity, and reflection.

Sometimes things happen that get in the way of that, and my goal is to help clients overcome those barriers, challenges, obstacles, losses … whatever it may be so that they may be able to realize their true inner potential. I believe that we all have the inner resources to overcome challenges and that sometimes we just need a little guidance to find and utilize those resources.

Most of us know our story well. We’ve analyzed, processed and unpacked the details countless times, and sometimes it feels like we’re stuck in the same loop. Through a mindfulness-based, somatic, and trauma-sensitive approach, I support you to let go of limiting beliefs, feel at home in your own skin, and be free to live the life you want. I will journey alongside you to help you feel more grounded and confident so that you can better navigate relationships, life transitions, and daily stressors. Through developing greater self-awareness you will discover new ways of moving through the world.

I am a licensed clinical psychologist with many years of experience working with children, adolescents, and their families, as well as adults. My interventions are heavily rooted in behavioral therapy and evidence-based practices including feminist and attachment theories. However, I tend to conceptualize clinical presentations from a multicultural and social justice perspective. While I employ empirically validated treatments to ignite change, I am also of the belief that there is no single story to any individual. Consequently, it is important to understand the social, cultural, political, and spiritual context of each individual.

Often clients come into therapy with me when they are stuck in life, in a crisis, or in transition in a relationship or job or when emotions are just becoming too much to cope with. They want a change but are not always sure how to go about it. Taking the step to begin therapy is not easy for most people, but starting therapy often leads to a real opportunity to change, in ways that are not always expected. My style is warm, inviting and engaging, and I seek to connect to each person where they are at in life.

By building a strong therapeutic relationship with my clients and by listening to and understanding them, I can determine the best approach that meets their needs and obtain their goals. With many different interventions, my clients will learn techniques to become aware and they will be able to identify their thought, emotional and behavioral patterns as well as identify the patterns that work for them and the ones that don’t. Exploring new ways of being, thinking, and behaving allows my clients to reach and maintain the fulfilling life that they want and deserve to have.

My approach to psychotherapy is based primarily on cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) principles of exploring and understanding the connection between our thoughts, emotions, and behavior. I seek to create a safe, warm and nonjudgmental environment in therapy, while helping you to identify key patterns and specific barriers that are stopping you from living a more fulfilling life. The purpose of therapy is to help you to find new ways of relating to your thoughts and emotions, deepen awareness and insight into your patterns, and learn effective coping skills -- ultimately to help you attain your goals and foster balanced living.

My approach aims to enhance awareness of various processes relevant to variables that influence thoughts, emotions, and behavior. As specific content is examined without being stuck in it, learning happens from the actual process. Likewise, psycho-education is a key component of my approach, as new insights and skills are learned, practiced, and honed to produce the desired change.

My approach is personalizing each treatment to each person’s wants, needs, and hopes by empowering them through their own journey. I believe that with this empowerment, you will be able to gain what it is that you want in life while exploring new tools or thinking pattern patterns to help you achieve who you want to be or become. I want to help you get the chance to be you and work towards the goals and hopes you have in your life.

Trauma, anxiety, and addiction can make you feel stuck. The most important step towards healing is to address the unresolved emotion inside you. Healing requires feelings. Acceptance slowly dissolves pain. When we function from the fear and scarring of our trauma, the cycles continue until we learn how to transmute that energy into love. I apply a Holistic approach that integrates physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual forms of well-being, addressing the “whole” self. Through a holistic framework tailored to your unique needs, the goal is to support you develop a deeper understanding of the self on all these levels.

Living in a pandemic has been challenging. A lot of old feelings that we have gotten pretty good at avoiding have been harder to dismiss, and this current way of coping might be feeling less manageable. You may find yourself facing new challenges, or maybe your emotional wellbeing and/or relationships are struggling. While these past few years in particular have been hard, now can also be an ideal time to start or restart psychotherapy. Change is happening on a large scale around us, and we are presented with a great opportunity to move with that change.

Confidence and connection are the key ingredients for a meaningful life, but they can be compromised in times of stress or transition. The foundations of the past, once familiar and secure, are shaken. Anxieties encroach. Connections are lost. Yet, I believe that despite the pain and difficulty of these phases, there is immense potential for positive change and personal growth. Helping you discover that potential is what I love most about my work, so I encourage you to reach out to me to get started today. You can email me at vanpeltcounseling@gmail.com or text me at 510-859-4448 to set up a free consultation. I will respond ASAP.
