"Anger. Guilt. Resentment. These are the common themes we all struggle with, today. Sadness is all too real when we hurt, and when we do not cope well, or do not know how to cope with our anger, guilt, and/or resentment, we can become depressed. What you will see, is a vicious cycle; a depressed person then becomes angry, and resentful, and can start to feel guilt. We are all able and capable of making better decisions for ourselves and for our loved ones. There is no shame in asking for help...only regret in never trying. I can help you."

Family Systems Therapists
Family Systems therapists in Bakersfield view problems within the family as the result not of particular members' behaviors, but of the family's group dynamic. The family is seen as a complex system having its own language, roles, rules, beliefs, needs and patterns. The therapist helps each individual member understand how their childhood family operated, their role in that system, and how that experience has shaped their role in the current family. Therapists with the MFT credential are usually trained in Family Systems therapy.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in Bakersfield are able to work with a wide range of issues.

For example, if you're seeking a marriage counselor in Bakersfield you'll find that most therapists are trained in marriage counseling or couples counseling in Bakersfield and couples therapy. And they welcome families for family counseling in Bakersfield or family therapy in Bakersfield.
