I enjoy working with people from a holistic point of view. I work with adults, couples. Struggling with past issues of trauma? Or are you dealing with current life stressors such as divorce, depression, anxiety, parenting, or relationships? Together, we can plot a course of action to increase wellbeing . A variety of therapy "tools" including, DBT, EMDR and Mindfulness ,are employed. My work with couples includes PACT therapy techniques. A unique highly effective evidenced based therapy.
When you speak to people I work with, they will tell you that they feel welcomed immediately in a place where they can be who they are while working on solving their problems: "I have overcome my self-doubts and debilitating anxiety. Claudia helped me understand why I stay in relationships too long that aren't really good for me. I was able to leave the pain of getting divorced behind me, and I am happy in my new, healthy relationship." It is not easy admitting that you may need help with a problem.
Hi there, I'm so glad you're here looking for support. Experiencing difficult feelings and thoughts can be extremely isolating. You might feel stuck, maybe you've tried to express yourself but don’t have the words. Trauma or loss may have occurred or you may not know why you feel this way. Your new normal might include issues in your relationships, self-destructive behaviors, depression, anxiety, or loss of hope. I empathetically support clients in finding growth during times of heightened pain. Together we can build a connection to whatever lies beneath the surface, fostering understanding, acceptance, resilience, and relief.
I offer relief from anxiety and depression for individuals who have not had results from typical "talk therapy". Reconnecting clients with a "life worth living" is my specialty. I also offer strategies for couples to improve communication. I see clients at two locations and am available for phone or Skype sessions. My down-to-earth methods and humor with clients help humanize the therapy experience, as I ask you to be mindful of self-judgment.We set goals together and I encourage homework to practice new skills and integrate them into daily life.
Life is a difficult and confusing journey for all of us at times. Occasionally, we get "stuck" along the way. Do you sometimes feel anxious, depressed, angry or afraid and believe that no one seems to understand or listen to you? Are you all alone? If you feel this way and are ready for change, I can help you find satisfying and lasting solutions which will bring calmness and joy into your life. I provide individual, couples, and family therapy to adolescents, adults, and seniors. Together we will develop a specific treatment to help you achieve the life you desire.
Inside every hurt, there is healing. I believe that in our depths, we know our wholeness and we know what we need. When outbursts, isolation & angst become the norm and connecting genuinely feels difficult or unusual, being generously held can make all the difference. As a widowed single mom, I know this directly. I practice Depth Psychology and will hold space for you as you are. With decades of experience, I recognize how our greatest sorrows & difficulties hold seeds of wisdom for our life's next steps. In this collaborative approach, your best version will develop so that you may blossom & enjoy your life's fullest expression.
I work with individuals who want to make a change in their life but solutions and where to start feel far or impossible. We will become a team that will learn what you need and how to get you to where you want to be. Ideally, an individual working with me would be open to bringing nature and or movement into the session, however, that is not required. I simply believe that trauma, anxiety, and other symptoms can get stuck in the body and movement helps as well as nature. Walking creates linear thinking and fresh air can give a sense of calmness.
Anxiety shows up at the worst times, if you're looking for extra support and guidance through a challenging situation or you're just ready to move on in a new direction in your life, I look forward to working with you to achieve your goals. You may be considering therapy because you are hurting, stressed, depressed, anxious, confused or experiencing relationship issues. As a therapist, I teach, guide and encourage individuals and families in identifying their strengths and find solutions that help each individual navigate their way through current difficulties in their Journey of Life.
When we are willing to open our hearts, we can cultivate health and wellbeing. I don't believe there is such a thing as being "fully healed," because that suggests it's possible for you to be broken. There are, however, always new pieces of yourself to discover and you don’t have to do this alone. You are worthy as you are. We are all imperfect humans. I believe that where there is willingness, there is hope. As a highly skilled and empathic clinician, I value creating a safe space for you to explore your emotions and can guide and support you through life’s challenges.
I am offering in-person sessions. Whether you are recovering from trauma, grief, or other mental and emotional stress, I will help by finding the therapy tools that best support your overall well-being. I will invite you to break free of non-productive cycles by teaching skills such as mindfulness, provide positive counseling techniques and share life changing tools to help you sustain positive patterns and behaviors. I will help you meet the goals that are important to YOU, and help you break free of sabotaging behaviors. I specialize in individual counseling for adults.
Are you struggling with your mood, codependency, relationship issues, struggles with life transitions? Is your relationship not where you'd like it to be? I help individuals with this topics and others. Therapy aims to increase the sense of well-being and success in life. Therapy/counseling can help alleviate your suffering, can help you create the change in your life that you've longed for or can help you accept that which you are struggling against. You do not need to continue to suffer or struggle. Let me help you. Call to make an appointment now, don't put it off any longer.
Being on this journey of life can be challenging, and dang it can be extra hard swimming upstream. Are you looking for a counselor who will meet you where you are and bring a compassionate, grounding and fiery energy to your intersecting identities? Are you seeking some extra support existing within this world? Are you wanting to better know yourself and explore growing edges? By Griffin gently bringing attention to internal sensations, emotions, movement, and thoughts clients are able to turn towards their most genuine, creative, empowered, compassionate and resilient selves.
My work is holistic, mindful and energetic. I am a certified heart-centered hypnotherapist who believes in your power to heal and to create the life that you want no matter what your past has been. Trauma is a more frequent experience than we think and can result in ongoing feelings of stress, tension, anxiety, lack of safety and depression. All of these are treatable. My integrative approach allows me to draw on the best of all models to provide holistic therapy designed especially for you. I am happy to provide you a 30 minute phone consultation to check me out.
I support clients in their spiritual growth and evolution as a soul. Rather than just focusing on better functioning or development of stronger ego, the work I do is about integrating our humanity with our divinity. We do this by centering in our core essence, aligning with Spirit and facing our pain and fears. The solutions to life's problems come not from fixing anything, but rather from meeting obstacles with love. This is done in partnership with Spirit by facing our blocks and allowing the Divine to dissolve those unloving thoughts.
I have been fortunate to have had passions that have guided my life. I also have a wide variety of life experiences. Both of these things serve me well to guide me in my practice of helping people. Life events and this desire led me to become certified in Equine Assisted Psychotherapy (EAP) in 2009. During my Masters program I expanded the concepts I began in EAP to working with other animals (currently dogs, cats, chickens). I work with heart and my wonderful therapy animals to help others with their own life journeys, as they clarify where they are stuck and find healthy ways to live and thrive in the life they envision.
Life can be a lot of things. Sometimes that's a variety of emotions or thought processes that are far from ideal and moving forward seems impossible. My approach to therapy is that we are collaborators, working toward the resolution you see for yourself.
My approach to therapy is person-centered and systemic in nature. I view therapy as an acknowledgment of an internal desire to become more attuned to the way that you experience the world. Therapy can help develop skills that improve functioning for individuals.
Clinical Social Work/Therapist, PhD, LCSW, MSW, CDWF
Dr. Deborah Rutt Phd, LCSW, CDWF is a one-of-a kind psychotherapist steeped in both Western and Eastern traditions. With a doctorate in interpersonal communication and change, Deborah helps clients identify their unique strengths, uncover perspectives and new tools for practical and profound change --- for mental health, well-being and to live and love authentically. Deborah enjoys bringing her expertise to enhance relationships of any kind. She is certified facilitator of The Daring Way™ approach to living whole-heartedly, based on the research by Brené Brown Phd, LMSW. Here are some issues that move clients to work with Deborah:
I am a very focused and goal-oriented psychologist, with over 20 years of experience. I am trained in a broad range of cognitive behavioral treatment approaches, including ACT. My clients learn to cope with stress, manage depression, and develop better relationships. I quickly identify what clients need to feel better, and work with them to develop a personal "dashboard" of critical factors. We evaluate the success of those individualized goals every week and adjust the treatment plan accordingly.
"The issues live in our tissues." We now know that our past experiences, thoughts, beliefs, and emotions are stored in our bodies. One of the best ways to heal ourselves is through moving the body in mindful ways, working with our breath, and getting connected to something beyond our ego - call it spirit, higher self, or God. My work involves learning what you are working with - addiction, difficult emotions, a need for physical healing, trauma, Kundalini awakening - and offering accessible movements, breath exercises, visualizations, and meditations to address those issues. I have developed a program called Embodying the 12 Steps.
