My name is Geoffrey Sherrell, M.A., AMFT. As a registered Associate Marriage & Family Therapist, I provide counseling under the supervision of my clinical supervisor Dr. Jane Teola, Psy. D., LCSW (Lic. Number LCSW 6619). Often, individuals are overwhelmed with emotions and feelings that cause their lives to be out of balance psychologically and spiritually. My goals for the individuals, families, and groups I serve are to restore balance and homeostasis within personal lives, family systems and social interactions.
Psychotherapy may be helpful to you if:
You are experiencing difficulty or conflict/communication problems within a significant relationship. Psychotherapy may also be helpful to you if you are currently experiencing symptoms of depression (feeling hopeless, withdrawal, irritable, etc) or anxiety (excessive worry, obsessive or intrusive thoughts etc.) if you are frequently angry or frequently stressed or you are facing major life challenges or decisions.
Psychotherapy is the process of examining and exploring your thoughts, feelings, behavior and relationships as well as learning how to make necessary changes to achieve better life and relationship satisfaction.
How would you like to live your life? What changes do you want to make? What's stopping you from making them? If you find that you're asking yourself these questions, let me help you figure out the answers. I know I can help you and/or your loved ones find the solution that will work for you. Your goals are yours to create. I generally go at your pace to support you realize goals and to facilitate the metamorphosis that is taking place.
I bring a mindfulness approach to psychotherapy, emphasizing an open, accepting, and non-judgmental awareness of oneself in the moment. By bringing awareness and compassion to your thoughts and feelings, you are able to deepen your understanding of yourself and create more meaningful relationships in the world. My style is gentle, patient and honest, having deep respect for the nature of the human condition and pace of meaningful growth. Our work together will encourage and challenge you in finding your way through fear and pain.
Hello. My name is Jessica Grace and I'm a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist. I have over 10 years of experience working with adults and children. I have had the privilege of working with clients with a wide range of concerns including anxiety, depression, addiction, mood disorders, relationship issues, life transitions, children with developmental delays and other various life challenges as they arise.
It may have taken you a long time to start this search for a therapist. This is a first big step for many–one that took courage and self-love. Life can be really rough and sometimes the judgement of our families, society, and culture gets in the way of taking care of our mental health. Free yourself from self-doubt and from racing thoughts that may take over your daily activities and affect your relationships.
Do you worry if she is making the right choices? As a parent, you want the best for your child. Perhaps it was easier when they were younger. Now that she is a teenager, things are more difficult. These days the world is complicated. Children are influenced by their peers, the internet, and the media. Maybe you are feeling like you used to have a close relationship and now your teen is more distance. Many parents who come to see me ask "Why is she so angry?" At times you may feel like you don't know what to do?
I specialize in COUPLES THERAPY, I am pro relationship, and love my work. So if you're feeling like you’re struggling in your relationship and it’s time to make a change, you’ve come to the right place. I’ll help you talk about the problems that have brought you to therapy, issues you argue about that keep coming up and never get resolved, topics you’ve avoided and have been afraid of discussing, or anything that is important to you. We’ll explore how the stress of these problems has affected you individually and as a couple, and we’ll craft solutions to reduce conflict and increase respect, love, and a sense of partnership.
Do you feel hurt or frustrated that you have tried repeatedly to communicate a need or desire in your relationship only to be left feeling misunderstood, unheard, disappointed and in conflict? Do you feel discouraged that nothing will ever change? I can help you feel encouraged in your relationships and together we can create change. When issues go continually unresolved, we may begin to experience feelings of anger and frustration which may lead to feelings of hopelessness, sadness,and anxiety. We may try to mask our pain through substance abuse, extra-marital affairs and other destructive behaviors.
Are you feeling disconnected? Stressed, anxious, tired, or angry? Are you or your loved ones repeating behaviors, relationships, or situations, and wishing you could break the cycle? Maybe little things feel more frustrating or overwhelming than usual. Sometimes, we aren't sure what causes our distress, but we can sense we're not reaching our potential for health, happiness, or success. And even when we know the cause, change can still feel impossible. That's where I come in. My job is not to judge you--it's to listen, help you understand the root causes of your difficulties, and teach you practical tools to help change your life.
Choosing a therapist is a difficult process. In the time when you may feel most vulnerable, you are inviting a complete stranger in to discuss very personal information. I believe safety and non-judgment are among the most important aspects of the therapeutic environment. I create a place for clients to ventilate emotions and build coping skills that make daily life more meaningful. Even though it may be difficult to initiate the process of therapy, having someone assist you in making sense of internal confusion can result in insight and clarity that is often very difficult to achieve alone.
Are you wishing you could feel happier in your current relationships? Let me help you understand the source of your difficulties and find healthier ways to achieve your goals. Your thoughts result in feelings and behaviors - sometimes positve and sometimes self-defeating.
Would you like to take control of your life? With the global pandemic at hand and things changing on a daily basis, taking control seems nearly impossible these days. We can. Do you repeatedly find yourself in relationships that hurt? Does pain from your past keep you from enjoying your life now? If so, I can help you learn to stop the pattern and start enjoying life. Change is possible, and you do not have to go on living in pain. We can work together to identify what is preventing you from living your life the way you have always wanted to, and with my training and experience, I can help you get where you want to go quickly.
A long time ago, poet Dante Alighieri wrote that in the middle of his life, he woke up to find that he was lost in the middle of a dark forest. There is a point in most all of our lives in which we need that professional, external help to guide us to psychological wellness. As a trauma and perinatal psychologist, I have specialized experience in helping you find the way to a life of health after traumatic events.
My clinical experience includes individual, group, couples, and family counseling, along with testing and assessment services with both English and Spanish speaking children, adolescents, and adults. I have administered over 100 educational, psychological, and psycho-educational assessments for school-aged children, adolescents, and adults. I have attended numerous IEP meetings for students with special education needs. In addition to assessment services, I have also conducted individual and family psychotherapeutic services for children, adolescents, and adults. I have experience providing services to clients on issues related to domestic violence, depression, anxiety, cognitive impairment, personality disorders, relational difficulties, learning disorders, and Autism.
Working with children and families is a passion of mine. My past clinical experiences include working with individuals, groups, couples, families, and administering psychological assessments. My prior experience as a primary school teacher and curriculum writer for charter schools allows me to be culturally sensitive and keenly empathic to challenges parents face when navigating the school system.
Are you a parent in search of help for yourself, your child, or your teen? Sometimes it can be difficult for children to reach their full potential. School problems, anger management, ADHD, peer relationships, low self-esteem, anxiety or depression are only some of the challenges that face kids today. With extensive experience providing therapy to adults, families, children, and adolescents, I can assist you in establishing better communication patterns and developing healthy family relationships. I utilize a holistic approach and focus on strengths, in order to help you meet your therapeutic goals.
As a psychologist with a doctorate in clinical psychology, master's degree in developmental psychology, and certificate in marital and family therapy, I value treating the family as a whole. While I enjoy developing meaningful therapeutic relationships with individuals of all ages, I have an expertise in treating issues of early childhood through the teen years. The earlier we address developmental, emotional, or behavioral concerns, the better the likelihood for positive lifetime outcomes. Young people can quickly grow and adapt, and enjoy coming to talk and play in my office. I appreciate the time with my adult clients, as well.
I am a licensed clinical psychologist (Psy.D). I approach my work with warmth, compassion, and hope. I value you- your time, your strengths, your efforts, your growth. I believe that you already have the wisdom and inner resources that you need to create the change you seek in your life. My job is to help you clear out the emotional clutter that is keeping you from feeling your best. We will work together to understand your history and develop practical tools so that you can live with joy and ease. Visit my website for more information: www.doctorgreer.com
