I'm a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist who specializes in Somatic Psychotherapy. Somatic simply means "relating to the body" and in therapy this means that I have been uniquely trained to integrate the wisdom from our biology into treatment. Our bodies relate information that, should we choose to listen, can support our overall mental health. This way of working can have profound effects on anxiety , depression, trauma, addictions, and disordered eating. The clients that receive maximum benefit from my approach have an open mind about how the body influences thoughts, not just how thoughts influence the body.

Eye movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR) is a valuable tool for dealing with trauma, mood disorders, anxiety , and self-esteem issues.
Psychotherapy is a path to understanding the Self. My background is in family systems and Jungian psychology. I work with individuals around issues of anxiety , depression, creativity, and trauma. Depth therapy often includes work with dreams, art, and sandplay. In addition, I use EMDR for trauma when addressing issues of PTSD. I specialize in sexual abuse with both adults and children as well as other kinds of trauma. I enjoy working with people from diverse cultures and orientations.As a supervisor for 25 years, I enjoy working with interns on their way to licensure. Buddhist mindfulness practice informs my life and work.

Marriage & Family Therapist, LMFT, MA
Verified
The Teche Institute offers a radically new modality that provides a step-by-step, highly practical treatment that teaches patients how their thoughts activate anxiety (distress) in their body.
Corinne Ducey is the Founder and Clinical Director of The Teche Institute for the Alleviation of Suffering. A graduate of Princeton, Georgetown, and the University of Nottingham, UK, with a Ph.D. in Russian and Holocaust Studies, Corinne left academia and flipped her study of the nature of suffering to the direct alleviation of suffering. Corinne developed The Teche Modality out of her own struggle to recover from 19 years of anorexia, self-hatred, and anxiety without treatment or therapy. Corinne identified the key elements to living free of emotional and psychological distress - We Must Get In Charge Inside of Our Heads.

For many people it is hard to ask for help when it comes to sorting out the challenges of life. Making the decision to seek assistance from a therapist is courageous and can be rewarded with a safe, warm and supportive therapy environment. I work with people who often feel they are in crisis, experience anxiety or depression, have a low sense of self and struggle with the relationships in their lives but are motivated to gain insight and skills that are necessary to make lasting positive changes.

Often, that includes uncovering the roots or relationship patterns and decreasing symptoms of depression and anxiety .
Are you feeling overwhelmed, anxious, or stuck? Do you find yourself repeating negative patterns? Do you want to make positive changes within yourself and your relationships? I believe that therapy is a collaborative process in which we together determine what you need. Years of experience contribute to my ability to create a safe space that will encourage deep exploration into understanding your emotional concerns. Often after completing the therapeutic process, many come to discover that they have more choices in their lives and report feeling more optimistic and alive.

Anxiety Therapists
At the core of anxiety is a mistaken appraisal of danger in which threats are exaggerated, triggering an array of negative feelings that overwhelm patients and lead to avoidant behavior. Therapists take aim at the three big components of anxiety—worry, physical arousal or edginess, and avoidance—by teaching one or more well-researched programs of skills that are custom-tailored to patients’ own worst thoughts.

If you're looking for a Downtown, Santa Barbara anxiety therapist, these professionals provide anxiety therapy and counseling in Downtown, Santa Barbara.
