A person comes to therapy when their present ways of being in relationship, or in the world, no longer seem to hold the meaning they once did. My aim is to support you in creating a new foundation of hope, purpose, and meaning in your life. I help people seek wholeness through the integration of mind, body, and soul, thus expanding their current level of understanding, and in so doing, creating the capacity to live more meaningfully.
I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in Santa Barbara. My M.A. degree is from Pacifica Graduate Institute giving me the foundation of Depth Psychotherapy. I am also a certified Gestalt Therapist with Children and Adolescents and a Registered Play Therapist. I view the individual from the personal, environmental, and historical influences.
Our work together will help you as an adult, or as a child, feel better about yourself-to feel stronger inside and have a clear sense of Self. Our work will also offer support as you explore feelings that you might not understand or have held inside for a long time. Maybe there are parts of you that you have lost touch with....

Stephanie Pawlowicz's Groups

Sand Tray Training

This group is offered yearly for anyone who wants to deepen their understanding of this expressive modality. I train from a Gestalt perspective using the phenomenological process of the Violet Oaklander Model. The trainings includes theory and experiential practice in order to better support a depth of understanding when using Sand Tray in Gestalt Play Therapy.
