SOMATIC COUPLES THERAPY: As human beings, we all face difficult seasons of life, as do our relationships. My practice is currently focused on providing a unique, somatic & attachment-based approach to couples & relationship therapy via telehealth video sessions. The way that we are in a relationship is a reflection of how we are in relationship to ourselves, and my approach takes this into account to provide a safe, gentle, and direct space for you and your partner to explore how you show up in the relationship.

You can't change what happened, but you can choose what happens next. Maybe you've behaved in ways you aren't proud of. These behaviors (substance use, anxiety, depression, social isolation) are ways you learned to protect yourself from pain. This is normal, and it’s okay. These unhelpful coping skills aren't protecting you anymore, they seem to be making your problems grow. You want to change your behavior to match your values, what's important to you. You want to live a life worth celebrating. I'm here to support you in moving from thinking to action.

I believe that everyone has the capacity to heal, change, and grow. Some of us were either not given the proper tools or were taught faulty ways of operating in the world that no longer serve us. While many of these “coping mechanisms” may have helped us survive our family of origin and life circumstances, they can have a detrimental impact on our present wellbeing and current relationships. Therapy is often about unlearning old ways of behaving and thinking, while integrating unfelt emotions that usually just want to be felt.

Relationships with others (partner, boss, siblings, friends, clients) are a central source of meaning and sometimes difficulty for us. I can work with you around relationship issues, including commitment, communication, sexuality, infidelity and healthy conflict.

You are smart, hardworking, and psychologically-minded. Your wellbeing is important to you and objectively, most things in your life are going well. Yet, feelings of anxiety, sadness, loss, emptiness, or disappointment gnaw at you. From time to time, you think about your past, from your adolescence to relationships and choices. These things aren’t directly related to your life now so you wonder why they come up at all but you cannot reconcile them. Because you are busy with work, family, and staying connecting, these emotional blips get lost. You don’t make time to reflect and feel. You just keep plugging along … until next time.

Teletherapy
Teletherapy and Online counseling have grown enormously as a medium for therapy since the advent of social distancing. Most therapists are happy to provide sessions by video or phone.

All professionals are licensed to provide video therapy to clients within the State in which they hold their license. Cross State licensing exists, but is rare.

So if you're a client in Santa Barbara County, this list of teletherapists are licensed to provide therapy to you online (by phone, video or text based chat) because they are within your state. They are sorted nearest to furthest, with professionals in Santa Barbara County listed first.

Teletherapy via phone or video can be very similar to conventional in person sessions. The message is the same, even if the medium is different. There are some advantages in the form of convenience, lack of travel and being in comfort of your own home. Set against those, professionals find it more difficult to read non-verbal signals of their clients, and you may find you yourself can be more easily distracted.
