Relationships are complex & it may be time to explore how you’ve been impacted by past unhealthy relationships. You may feel as if you’re not enough, a bother or annoyance to your family or others. Often seeking acceptance from the others even though you know it may not happen. The struggle one has towards being accepted by family/others in order to feel as if you are good enough can often feel unbearable or never ending. Survivors of past damaged relations can make one feel as if you have no worth or value & leave you struggling to identify your worth & seek approval from others. You are not alone in these thoughts & feelings.

We live our lives in search of happiness, fulfillment, enrichment, and balance through our relationships, families, jobs and career. These areas can become demanding, stressful and even overwhelming. We face challenging situations of life transitions, grief and loss, family dynamics, trauma and abuse. As a result, we experience symptoms of depression, anxiety, anger, and other moods. This is a good time to consider seeking professional help. The journey of psychotherapy can be challenging, yet it is often healing and rewarding.

Out cultural institutions do not prepare us for the diversity of experience we face as adults. Conformity to outdated rules of thinking and acting do not work in situations that invite flexibility and adaptiveness. Rigid thinking patterns are maladaptive and lead to frustration, stress, and depression. We are led to believe we "should" be able to solve problems through mastery of our behavior and feelings, but it's just that demand to control things that leads to a identity. confusion. Therapy is not education: I don't work from a lesson plan that has all the right answers. We will work your story 'till it makes sense.

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 Ventura, 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 Ventura 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.
