Jill T Rubin, MSW, LCSW, Clinical Social Work/Therapist in Santa Barbara
I specialize in healing relationships with self and other, whether they are painful, confusing, or just plain unsatisfying. If you're "going through the motions," you lost yourself, your anxious mind is driving you crazy, or if you can't decide whether to stay in that relationship or leave. I'll help you learn to manage those difficult emotions and confusing situations so that you can move through those life transitions and issues with a greater sense of confidence and ease.
I have a down-to-earth approach informed by a variety of modalities including ones that focus on thoughts and behaviors, past family history, energy systems in the body, meditation/mindfulness and spirituality. I work with adults and adolescents and particularly enjoy working with gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender clients.
I strive to balance strong clinical work with a healthy dose of good humor. If you think we may work well together, please contact me for a free initial consultation. I look forward to supporting you on your journey toward wellness and joy.
