Note: As of Feb/2024 I am not accepting new clients. Carrying that heavy backpack of emotional "stuff" around? Need help unpacking? All too often we carry these heavy loads, not realizing there are resources and skills that will help you feel better. Improving your everyday quality of life is possible. Trauma, work stressors, strained relationships, and self-esteem are the most common struggles I see in my practice.
My name is Genevieve and I am a Silicon Valley based licensed Marriage and Family Therapist practicing individual and couples psychotherapy. I work from a client-centered approach to identify goals that are unique to each of my clients. I will use a combination of modalities to work with you to start the journey of healing.
I will listen, reflect, and together we will focus on the thoughts, feelings and traumas that hold you back and weigh you down. My years of experience working with trauma provide safety and trust for my clients. I am in this with you.
Call or Genevieve Altwer, LMFT now for a free 15 minute consultation - (562) 330-2550

Using cognitive behavioral therapy (one therapy I use), I would encourage you to identify and challenge negative thought patterns that contribute to distressing emotions or behaviors. Together, we will work on developing practical strategies to modify those thoughts and replace them with healthier, more adaptive ones. We can foster positive changes and empower you to lead a more fulfilling life.
