I work with communication issues, stuck relationship patterns, depression, anxiety, trauma, PTSD, OCD, and parenting /co- parenting issues.
Sometimes it takes the gentle mirroring of another person to help see what is no longer working in our lives. Habits formed to survive difficult childhoods may be wrecking havoc. Communication styles may be sabotaging love. We may feel overwhelmed in parenting , or facing a big life transition. I work closely with my clients to increase communication skills and develop greater personal awareness. I teach nervous system regulation in order to stay calm and effective during conflict, difficult conversations, and life transitions. From therapy you’ll learn to operate from wholeness and authenticity, and gain acceptance for self/others.

In addition, I am the parent (and spouse) of individuals with ADHD, Sensory Issues, Dyslexia, Anxiety and OCD.
I am particularly effective in working with bright and highly sensitive teens. During this pandemic, I believe that our most perceptive, sensitive adolescents are having the biggest mental health challenges with not seeing friends, family, and teachers on a more regular basis. I have extensive experience as a School Counselor in both private and public schools in the SF Bay Area. I also have designed and taught Social and Emotional Learning at several private schools. My ideal client is a teen facing the obstacles of anxiety, depression, learning challenges or social skills challenges at school or home.

As a therapist, I look for the basic goodness of human beings and try to bring clients having locus of control in their lives and share perspectives leading clients to feel liberated so they find the meaning of life; fulfillment and happiness. This takes practice, as our minds naturally scan for the negative, but if we try, we can almost always find something good about you and others which will lead us to heal and peace and may bring harmony and joy to our life. Personally, I enjoy reading books regarding history and philosophy. I have a strong passion for helping children and adults, including parenting issues.

Paths to greater wellbeing run through a process of integration: Warmth, positivity and kindred spirit met by realistic reckoning with limits and negative feelings; Integrity of your heart and mind - - - resilience not dependence, vitality not the victim-trap ideology that has taken over mental health in recent years; Multiple perspectives to improve your grounded orientation, individually and in relation with others; "Common-sense" values (e.g. morals, tradition, family) guided also by experience and sophisticated psychotherapy principles. My therapeutic stance integrates these threads with care, balance, intuition, and wit.

I also enjoy helping parents navigate the challenges of parenting , from infancy through the teen years.
East meets West. It is a phrase we hear often but how does it translate into practice? The pull lies in the strength of the familiar; the push is an urge to create space and jump into the unfamiliar. As an individual who was raised between two cultures, I offer a warm and safe space to discuss cultural competency as it relates to your life. Retaining your cultural values and traditions while simultaneously assimilating to the societal norms of your geographic upbringing can lead to many questions about ourselves in the past, present and future. I believe strongly in your ability to grow if nurtured in an encouraging environment.

Parenting is the world's hardest job without training -- and it's extra-hard if you have a "difficult" child or are trying to break a generational parenting cycle.
If you have a "challenging" child (e.g., defiant, strong-willed, sensitive, ADHD, explosive) you need support. I train parents to raise their child(ren) without yelling, shame, blame, bribes or threats – even if they are stuck in these cycles right now. Having a difficult child makes parenting harder than usual, but you can learn how to get your whole family to thrive, not just survive. I know you want positive, loving bonds with your kids for life - let's get started! To book a free consult visit: www.lainelipsky.com/call
