Elizabeth Wolfson, PhD, Clinical Social Work/Therapist in Santa Barbara
Because each person is unique, there is no set formula for helping someone find solutions and achieve goals. I focus on you and your particular circumstance without judgement or preconception. The process is direct, supportive, and interactive. You are here because what has already been tried is not working. I am here to help you identify alternatives in a safe atmosphere. When choosing a therapist you want to feel comfortable with the person and also consider experience. When I am not at my practice, I teach others on how to be therapists. I myself am a seasoned psychotherapist of over two decades.
While my advanced degrees are important qualifications, your unique situation calls for an approach that best suits you. My focus in on fully understanding what you are experiencing at this particular time and prioritize what you would like to make happen. Whatever approaches we use, are all in the service of that goal.
Examples of the kinds of interventions I provide are, listening carefully and offering feedback based on my observations and knowledge. Together we will formulate clear and attainable goals that you believe will enhance the quality of your life in whatever ways that is defined by you.
