Paul Innerarity, MA, LMFT, Marriage & Family Therapist in Sacramento
Are you tired of continually trying to control, change, get rid of, or avoid painful thoughts, feelings, sensations and experiences? If so, together we will explore ways to move beyond these temporary relief strategies towards relating and responding in a more flexible manner. Discover, express and integrate previously unknown parts of yourself, build upon strengths already in place, and work on the past by increasing the vitality of your work on relationships in the present. Together we'll explore what underlies your symptoms, what adaptive need or function they serve, and how symptoms may point toward needed life changes.
I collaborate with clients to develop customized treatment plans for brief and longer term treatment. I incorporate Depth Psychology, mindfulness, cutting edge evidence based practices, mind/body approaches, solution focused, Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy and Acceptance Commitment Therapy.
I work with experiential and imaginal exercises, value driven behavioral interventions, metaphors, symbolism, and dreams to uncover new meaning and possibilities. I am committed to practices that consciously cultivate awareness, acceptance, and encourage a more authentic and vital relationship with self, other, and the world.

Paul Innerarity's Groups

Interpersonal Therapy Group

Group helps to identify core beliefs, projections and self limiting patterns of behavior that inhibit more meaningful relationships. Through cooperation, dialogue, and self-reflection, a safe respectful container is built whereby members can examine their style of relating to self and others. "Here and Now" interactions facilitate therapeutic change rather than prefab exercises and activities. Group involves: attention to current emotions, thoughts and sensations; receiving immediate direct feedback and validation on how you see yourself compared to how others see you, and learning to separate what is happening in the moment from what is expected to happen based on past experiences.

More about this group

Men's Interpersonal Therapy Group

This group operates like the other Interpersonal Process Group I facilitate (see other group description). It also focuses on concerns and issues important to men. This group helps you discover healthier ways to express and manage emotions, connect with your own needs, desires, hurts, and strengths, practice new ways of relating, communicating, and resolving conflict, learn to ask for and give support and constructive feedback, explore strengths and struggles in relating to others, reduce feelings of isolation by sharing common experiences with other men in a safe, respectful, non-shaming setting. 6-8 members per group:Dates and Times TBA
