I work within a strength based, psychodynamic model.
You might be seeking help because you feel stuck in your relationships, with your family or with your child. The stories of our lives are powerful and can shape our reality. You might be holding stories and pain about yourself, your family, the world, or your child that are interfering with a present focus and ability to face current challenges. Together we can champion your innate healing capacity in a safe, emphatic, and attached, therapeutic relationship. Therapeutic support can help you recover your true sense of self as an individual or a parent, can heal family wounds, and help you find a renewed zest for life.

My orientation is eclectic, psychodynamic , and analytic.
I provide a supportive environment where clients feel comfortable in talking about the discomfort they are experiencing. Together we explore those difficulties and seek to help you find relief. For those who want deeper work, and to make significant changes in their lives, I have been trained to provide more intensive, longer term therapy. I began my practice and continued training post graduate school for 30 years. For more information about my practice please see my website at: pegbailey.com.

Do you struggle with feelings of anxiety, depression, guilt or low self-esteem? Do you find yourself avoiding social engagements or so preoccupied with excessive worrying? Finding ways to navigate these difficult feelings can help you get back on track. I use a psychodynamic approach and CBT that focuses on uncovering patterns of behavior and ways of relating to ourselves and others that are often outside of our awareness. I also consider how our past impacts who we are today. Through acceptance and empathy, we will establish a trusting therapeutic relationship and work together toward your personal growth and self-discovery.

Treatments I provide include CBT, motivational interviewing, psychodynamic therapies, and more.
Do you feel worried, stuck, or overwhelmed much of the time? Perhaps anxiety or other problems keep you from leaving home, interacting with others, or doing activities you enjoy. Many of my clients deal with addiction problems, past trauma, depression, low self-esteem, or related issues. A lack of confidence can make it difficult to feel safe in the world. I help people get to the bottom of what’s going on. Whether you’re struggling with a mental health issue, working through a trauma or loss, or aren’t sure what’s happening, I can help. You can feel more hopeful, less anxious, and more excited about living again.

Are you struggling with distressing symptoms of anxiety and depression that keep you from doing the things you want to do? Do things that seem simple trigger strong emotional reactions and cause you to lose out on the rewarding and enjoyable things in life? Is fear keeping you from going certain places, doing certain things or interacting with certain people? Have you experienced trauma? My philosophy for therapy includes an individualized approach based on your unique strengths, needs and goals. My approach is holistic, integrating symptom reduction, physical health, relationships, and spiritual growth.

I use evidence-based trauma-informed practices including psychodynamic psychotherapy, internal family systems, CBT, and neuroscience-backed mindfulness, to address both your troubling symptoms and your mind-body connection.
Do you feel as though your experiences have left you fractured, disconnected or lost? We can’t erase them, but together we can help you make sense of your history and heal painful emotional wounds. My treatment is based on trust and safety: understanding how these may be difficult for you and finding ways to develop them with me. With this foundation, my patients find that they are able to gain new understanding of and compassion for themselves as multifaceted individuals. Our therapeutic relationship will be dedicated to holding space for all parts of you and your story, especially those that feel too challenging to explore alone.

My approach includes theories that look to the past, present and future as I guide from psychodynamic , cognitive behavioral therapy, and solution-oriented approaches that help find your inner strengths and resilience.
Therapy doesn’t have to be a dreaded experience. With a kind heart and open mind, I strive to make therapy a comfortable place where you can explore the deepest insights about yourself with compassion and empathy. Therapy becomes an experience and journey about who YOU are and where YOU want to go. Is something standing in the way? Are you stuck in repetitive patterns or plagued by underlying issues? Whether you are suffering unbearable panic attacks, struggling with depression, or having difficulty with transitions, I'm here to help. Let's go beyond the surface and help YOU learn about YOU.

Regardless of what's going on in your life, my goal is to help you better confront, cope with, and recover from difficulties, so that you can live a more fulfilling life.

I am currently out on maternity leave but feel free to reach back out in October. I find it a privilege to work with adolescents and adults during periods of growth, transition, or challenge in their lives. My approach to therapy is primarily psychodynamic and depth-oriented, incorporating attachment theory, object relations, narrative therapy, and family systems. I believe we are wired for connection but breaks in relationship to ourselves and others can lead to depression, anxiety, numbing, distorting, shame, anger, addictions, and compulsions.

I believe being in an equilibrium state is one of the keys to maintain a healthy well being, however, we often face many challenges that could easily lead to a disequilibrium. My role as a therapist is to work with you collaboratively in order to address your needs, to guide you in understanding how your past experiences shape your present self; to help you in identifying your thought patterns and emotions that affect your behaviors; and to coach you so that you are equipped when dealing with different life challenges. By working as a team, you will eventually be able to restore the balance and maintain a healthy well being.

I draw from Expressive Arts, Narrative Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and Psychodynamic Theory to best support emotional growth and healing for each individual client.
I am here to listen to you. I work with children, teens, and adults to support exploration of difficult issues and life changes. Often what brings someone to seek counseling, either for themselves or for their child, is being faced with a challenge they need support navigating and resolving. This issue may result from an atypical experience or be more pervasive, and can bring about feelings of anger, depression, anxiety, low self-worth, or communication issues. Taking the risk to ask for help is the first step on the road toward healing and growth.

Psychodynamic Therapists
Psychodynamic therapy in San Jose, also known as insight-oriented therapy, evolved from Freudian psychoanalysis. Like adherents of psychoanalysis, psychodynamic therapists believe that bringing the unconscious into conscious awareness promotes insight and resolves conflict. But psychodynamic therapy is briefer and less intensive than psychoanalysis and also focuses on the relationship between the therapist and the client, as a way to learn about how the client relates to everyone in their life.
