Inner pain can be an opportunity for deep learning & growing bc it serves to expose the real issues that have gone unresolved within yourself and in your relationship/ marriage for way too long.
GASLIGHTING; NARCISSIST ABUSE; CODEPENDENCY; TOXIC ATTACHMENT; HI-CONFLICT RELATIONSHIP: Gaslighting is a form of psychological/emotional abuse where the abuser manipulates situations repeatedly to trick the victim into doubting his/her own memory, perception & sanity. You're accused of doing something that you know you didn't do or say. Often belittled, demeaned, and raged upon. You walk on eggshells & constantly need to watch what you say for fear your partner might blow up. You often feel confused & now distrust yourself; have trouble making decisions & feel like you lost yourself or don't know the person you used to be.

I am dedicated to help you to overcome those difficulties and feelings, to empower you to move forward towards positive change. Seeing you to regain life balance and to live and love your life wholeheartedly will be my greatest joy.

My areas of expertise include: Depression/Anxiety; Life Transitions; Eating Issues/Body Image Concerns; Spirituality; Parenthood; Survivors of Childhood Abuse and Neglect; Marriage /Partnership; Prenatal, Pregnancy and Postpartum.
My first job as a therapist is to listen and understand. Deep listening is a time honored tradition and fundamental to healing. I strive to create a safe and nurturing relationship with clients that is a source of comfort and inspiration. Clients inspire me too! I practice spiritually grounded psychotherapy. This means I see life's challenges as, fundamentally, opportunities to grow spiritually and as a whole person. To me, the process of healing is beautiful and miraculous, something that gives us glimpses of a benevolent force much greater than ourselves.

As we evolve through life, we are faced with challenges and new roles that may make us feel inadequate and uncomfortable. It is not uncommon for a person to feel stuck or lost during this time. For the past 25 years, in an educational and therapeutic setting, I have worked along side adults, and couples/families to help create effective ways to tackle such challenges. When we negatively question our self-worth and strengths, it is time to develop productive ways to break old patterns and see through a truthful lenses.

Addictive behaviors are difficult for an individual as well as their loved ones. The initial step in meeting a new client is getting an accurate assessment to facilitate the necessary level of treatment for a drug or alcohol problem. Services available are individual, group, and family therapy for adolescents and adults. In addition, I provide services for personality disorders, bipolar disorder, anxiety, depression and OCD. A safe, supportive and caring environment is available for you to discuss your needs.

Hi! I’m really looking forward to meeting and welcoming you to a safe, accepting space where you can share. Being a human is hard! And parenting humans is tough too! When we're triggered all over the place and when we're scared, it's hard to be in an authentic relationship with others. But when we take care of ourselves, when we really understand ourselves, then we can show up in our relationships in ways that lead to more connection, which is what we all want.

I am Gia Reyes and I am a first-generation immigrant and mother. I have first-hand experience of how migrating to a new country impacts mental health. I know how 'old country' values can clash with today's beliefs, causing much conflict and pain between different generations and how it may even feel like you have 'lost' the identity you knew. There can be unexplained sadness and anxiety, and maybe even guilt, because you are supposed to live in the most powerful country in the world yet you aren't 'happy.' Whether it has been a year or 20 years since you landed, you may still feel untethered.

It is difficult to begin therapy; many people carry a therapist's business card in their pocket for weeks before they start. But if you're in a lot of emotional pain, it can feel like life is running you rather than you running it. Once you reach out for support, the process starts. Together, we'll explore any distorted thinking patterns you may be having and develop your strengths so that you can regain a sense of agency and equanimity. We'll focus on your core values and how you can make changes in alignment with them. Your precious life is worth it! I do have current openings ... and I look forward to talking to you.

What type of San Carlos 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 or psychologist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counselor in San Carlos?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering 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.
