So you are looking for a therapist and I am happy that you have found my page. I know this is not an easy decision for you to consider coming to therapy. Therapy is a very individualized process and finding the right therapist for yourself is important. I conceptualize therapy as a collaborative process in which the therapist and client(s) work together to develop treatment content and goals. I can and do work in a solution-oriented fashion but can also go further beyond symptom relief to help clients create lasting change in their lives.

Whether you are struggling with a relationship conflict, grieving a significant loss, experiencing a lack of joy or creativity, or perhaps making a career change, I offer support and guidance to work through feelings of confusion, fear, self-doubt, isolation or loneliness that often accompany these challenges. Therapy can be a comfortable place to address many troubling concerns in a careful, reflective way so they become life-enhancing experiences rather than simply "bearable" moments to endure.

As a dance/movement therapist, our sessions can be purely talk therapy, movement and talk therapy, or a mixture of movement, talk, and other creative approaches. In our sessions together, I will create a space where all aspects of you are welcome and you can speak freely about whatever is on your mind. I can help you understand how your past impacts your present. I am here to listen, understand, and help you discover new choices and new ways of being, so that you can flourish in life. I am here to support you on your journey of self discovery and self growth.

Teen angst? Bring it on! I work with adolescents, teens, and parents in navigating some of the most difficult years. If you are having difficulty connecting with your child, tween, or teen I will assist you with enhancing your connection while simultaneously setting boundaries as a parent. Sounds like a difficult feat? I know! But isn't it from the challenging times that we gain the most? Do you remember what it was like getting through middle school? Many of us would like to forget, however, with assistance it does not have to be so difficult for your child or for you to reach them.

Are you grief stricken by wishing you were stronger, able to make changes in your life? Are you frozen by feeling trapped and like things will never change? Do you feel weak, lost, confused? I understand this deep suffering, utter disconnection from the world, no relationship that feels good, no peace of mind. I can help you pinpoint what is causing these feelings and how to address them. I can help you stop running and courageously face what has you on edge all the time, unsettled. Together we can explore how to find your footing, and tend to your deep sense of disconnection so it can transform into a full, rich, and embodied life.

There are times when all feel we know who we would like to be, but cannot quite find a way to get there alone. I believe that we are all doing the best we can at any given moment, and that any challenges a person, family, or couple may be experiencing, can be resolved with the right support. My hope is to offer a space to explore and develop a treatment plan that will match your specific needs.

I specialize in therapy with school-age children and adolescents, parent support, and family therapy; as well as individual and couples' counseling. Work with school-age children may use play or art therapy to explore issues affecting your child's behavior. Parenting is challenging and sometimes it helps to have professional support. Together, we can explore the meaning of your child's behavior and identify ways to address problem situations. I invite as many family members as necessary to work together in making changes that will reduce stress and strengthen the family circle. Consider therapy as a gift to yourself!

I have been offering psychotherapy to individuals, couples and families for the past 27 years. I would particularly like to work with couples, whether it is in the very beginning of the relationship to check for compatibility, during the relationship to deal with problems that arise, or working on amicable separation. I offer conflict resolution to individual, couples and families. I am also trained in divorce mediation to work on uncontested divorce where we can create a win/win situation for both parties. All the work can be done in a few sessions and this could save you legal fees that can run into tens of thousands of dollars.

Are you struggling with navigating a relationship in your life? Relational therapy, typically called couples but can include a variety of relationship types, focuses in on communication, trust, repair, and joy. Typical sessions include allowing space for identifying specific sources of discomfort and practice for how to make and sustain relational shifts. Specialized training in child psychology allows for particular support around navigating parenting challenges and understanding how to support your unique child.

I offer an accepting and warm environment to explore areas of unease, pain, and confusion. I view the process of therapy as an opportunity for you to experience an authentic and supportive relationship from which you find healing while gaining greater awareness around what is and is not working in your life. Though initially it may feel painful to confront the experiences, parts of ourselves, or relationships holding us back, healing begins from awareness. By collaboratively identifying your values, unique strengths, and your hopes we may utilize these facets to create movement toward the life and relationships you desire.

Do you wish your mate listened to you and understood you better? Do you sometimes feel angry that he/she is too controlling and unwilling to compromise? It doesn't have to be this way. Let me help. Loving behaviors are learned. I can teach you to build a stronger and more loving connection. I would love to teach you the simple but powerful skills with which to improve your relationship. Do know that all relationships start with the self. How we treat ourselves internally is often what we allow externally. Let me help you work the inside job and the relationship with other job.

Life is full of transitions, whether in childhood or adulthood. They are part of life and can be positive or negative. Life will always throw something your way. I'd like to help you through these transitional periods and make the journey smooth and comfortable. Seeking treatment can be a difficult choice, but in the end is a rewarding part of life. I'm looking to support parents of young children, children/teens transitioning to new stages of life, adolescents transitioning to college, new mothers adjusting to being a parent, and women who are struggling with job/school/relationship/motherhood stressors.

Maybe you’ve dedicated many years to meeting the needs of your family, your children, or your career.

You might be coping with a major life transition such as a divorce, job change, or a newly empty nest. Suddenly, you hear a wakeup call: Who am I now, and what do I need to be happy?

Hello, I’m Eula Lys (“oi-lah leese”). I provide somatic, relational psychotherapy that celebrates queer, expansive, non-conforming and neurodivergent folx. I help you embody your authentic self, discover your inner light, and come home to your body. As a queer femme, I get how exhausting it can be to find supportive spaces where you have the freedom to let your identity expand and evolve. I hold a space that is supportive, affirming, and creative. I believe it's important to know that there's another human in the therapy room with you. I bring my whole self - my queerness, my neurodiversity and my authenticity - to sessions.

What type of Pacifica mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in Pacifica?
When looking to find a therapist, it is certainly important to consider training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
