The ideal client is MOTIVATED and realizes there is a need for CHANGE starting with one's self. Sometimes we just need that push in the right direction; a new set of eyes; that guidance to the answers that's already within. If that's what your're looking for, then you've found the right person! Are you struggling with your daily activities? Not feeling like yourself? Filled with constant worry? Just know you are not alone. Often times, life gets the best of us and we're bombarded with stress and life's constant demands. Let me help you to gain the tools to reduce those stressors and get back to enjoying life.
Do you have difficulty keeping up with the demands of life? Do you feel disconnected or down? Does it seem like your mind is often running away with worry? Are you going through a big change and could use some guidance? You're not alone and I'd like to help! You and I both know that over time, life can get away from us. I can help you find new ways of living and being that reduce stress and struggle, while enhancing meaning, purpose, and enjoyment of life.
Are you looking for passion, confidence, and motivation in life? Artful Sex Coaching works with every aspect of your life, emotional, physical, and spiritual. Delving into your sexuality is a direct and powerful pathway to transformational healing in all areas of yourself. Whether it is uneven desire in a relationship or dating anxiety, I can help uncover the sexual messages learned growing up that hold you back from having a fun and fulfilling sex life. I specialize working with women with low libido and women who have experienced sexual abuse. I guide them to find ways to talk to their partners about sexuality.
You are only human. This means needing secure, safe attachments with others in order to thrive. You want freedom from anxiety, codependency, depression, or trauma. You're experiencing conflicts in your most important relationships. These problems often block us from feeling confident or thinking clearly. You may be out of energy trying to fix what's wrong and need a new perspective to resolve these difficulties.
Accepting new clients in person and online. I am a therapist specialized in couples therapy and in trauma. Half of my clients are couples who are in crisis, are considering separation or have found out about a betrayal. I see also many couples who have communication problems and are very disconnected from each other. In addition to couples, I work with adults who are having anxiety or depression symptoms. Many of them have gone through experiences of trauma, are in a difficult life transition and are wanting to unpack the past, set boundaries with their family and be their preferred selves.
When life gets tough, whether it's anxiety or depression or relationship dissatisfaction, it can feel overwhelming. It is often an internal wake-up call to reach for support and receive help from others in order to cope effectively.
Within the safety of a therapeutic relationship healing and change can occur. With a compassionate and caring therapist this process can unfold. It's possible to become the person you desire to be. Even with a good set of change making skills we can feel stuck and unable to access a pattern that worked before or create a new pattern. In therapy you can clarify what is keeping you stuck and change from within. Relationships with self and others can improve as a result of the therapeutic process.
Hi there! I am Dr. Julie Badaracco and I work with adolescents, and adults on depression, anxiety, acculturation issues, identity development, trauma, time and stress management, and major life transitions. I genuinely enjoy working with individuals from culturally diverse backgrounds, and will work to incorporate your cultural identity and values into your therapy. My therapy approach is collaborative in nature as I strive to understand who you are and your unique concerns. I value a strong working relationship, as I believe that to experience growth and healing you must feel that you can trust me and speak openly.
You're likely searching here because you need some help. Some guidance. You may be in crisis and need someone to talk to about what's happening inside of you. Or you may find yourself repeating the same patterns in relationships leading to emotional pain, anxiety and loneliness. Most of us tend to operate on autopilot allowing our unconscious mind to repeat patterns. Often, our past gets enacted in the present. I believe, that which can be named can be healed. When we have the courage to look inward in the presence of an empathetic other we experience the true freedom of psychotherapy. That freedom is awareness and choice.
As an Integrative Psychotherapist, Social Worker & Pastoral Counselor, I use complementary therapy approaches to assist in developing the tools necessary to navigate life challenges and create a sense of healing, balance and wholeness. Integrative Psychotherapy recognizes the fundamental value of each person and brings together the emotional, behavioral, mental, physiological and spiritual dimensions of life.
Above and beyond all the psychological theories and interventions we therapists use, the most important factor in your successful experience in therapy is the relationship between you and your therapist. Most, if not all, therapists will tell you this and recent scientific research in neurobiology backs it up. This perspective, called "interpersonal neurobiology", creates the foundation of the therapy I give all my clients as we work together to help you understand what you are experiencing and how you can move closer to what you need.
Marriage & Family Therapist Associate, MBA, MS, AMFT
Compassionate, intuitive and willing to help. I am an Associate Marriage and Family Therapist registered with the California Behavioral Board of Science. I have worked with children, adolescents, and adults for over 20 plus years. My foci are adults and children with difficult family dynamics and social, personal, and interpersonal issues. My goal is to help children, adolescents, families, and adults develop interpersonal skills to find success on a daily basis. I use a variety of different therapeutic interventions in therapy ranging from Virginia Satir’s Change Model process, Narrative therapy, and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy.
When they first come in, many of the women and girls I work with are straight-up exhausted from holding it together day in and day out, though on the surface you’d never know it. My clients are smart, strong and capable - they get it done – but after a while that tendency to white-knuckle-it, takes its toll. Many of my clients wrestle with sleepless nights and constantly feeling on edge, they are uncomfortable in their own skin, comparing themselves to others or the impossibly high standards they’ve set for themselves.
I believe that some of the ways people developed to cope with difficult experiences in early life no longer adaptively serve them; therefore, I help clients gain insight into those patterns and develop new ways of being in order to make positive changes. I also deeply value the impact that family-of-origin and culture have on identity development, interpersonal relationships, and how one views the world. My dissertation focused on examining the relationship between academic stress and physical health symptoms. I have a specialty in working with adolescents, college-aged students, and young professionals.
