About

I work with clients who are struggling with trauma or who may be facing personal or relationship problems creating friction or functional problems in their lives. I can help address the feeling that something is just not quite right in one's life, that one is not living to ones fullest potential, and identity issues. Invariably, these problems arise as a result of loss and disillusionment, whether it be through traumas including heartbreak, the loss of a loved one, or feelings of abandonment, isolation, or not being understood. I have significant experience and training in working with men and teenage boys.
I work from the tradition of Depth Psychology where healing occurs through a dialogue with the unconscious via dream analysis, mindfulness, and the interchange that occurs between therapist and client in a gentle, non-judgmental, client-centered environment. I also utilize Attachment Focused-EMDR for those struggling with the effects of trauma and PTSD.
I also work with clients seeking to self-actualize; to become more genuine and feel comfortable in their own skin, blemishes and all! Many of my clients work in the creative arts including musicians, actors, and writers. Please feel free to contact me for a free initial telephone consultation.

Ruben Gutierrez's Groups

Men's Group

This is a group of five to six men getting together weekly for 1.5 hours to talk about issues affecting our lives. The group works within the framework of sharing our dreams to converse with and learn what the personal and collective unconscious wants us to hear. The therapist/facilitator will provide direction in dream interpretation and lead the group from the depth psychology perspective. This is an exciting opportunity to do introspective work, develop a more healthy masculine personality, and develop strong bonds with other men. Such opportunities are far and few between in today's modern society.
