To be happy and free of suffering ... this is the experience of effective therapy. When we're witnessed, deeply understood and guided to our true self, the challenges of being human can become magical. Blending multiple clinical orientations I work with the client's whole being - mind, body & spirit - to discover his/her own unique truths and capacities. Because so much of who we are is a function of our relationships, I gravitate toward couples, families and groups, teaching people how to relate to themselves and each other with refreshing honesty and authenticity.

I specialize in working with couples, families, women in mid-life, and children ages 12 and older. I have 7 years experience leading therapy groups and currently facilitate 2 weekly groups at The Family Therapy Institute of Santa Barbara: women in mid-life and a co-ed group.

Additional areas of focus include: career/work satisfaction, family caregivers, chronic pain, mid-life themes, survivors of childhood abuse, trauma, depression, anxiety, grief, partner betrayal/infdelity. I work with an esteemed team of skilled clinicians at the Family Therapy Institute of Santa Barbara, bringing cost-effective treatment to our community.

Thery Jenkins's Groups

Embracing Authenticity Co-ed Group

In this safe group environment members are supported to take risks to illuminate interpersonal patterns, experiment with more functional and satisfying ways of being, and discover new realms of intimacy and connection with the self and others. Utilizing therapist-­guided processes, mindfulness practices, and group feedback and support, members experience an uncommon sense of freedom and relatedness.

More about this group

Authentic Woman

Living as an authentic woman requires that we meet ourselves with more compassion, mindfulness and skill. This group explores common themes we wrestle with as women. Outcomes for members include: deepened awareness of our reactions to change and transition; discovery of blind spots and unsatisfying relationship patterns, support for transforming old, reactive ways of being into potent, inspired & self-directed action; resources for creating more satisfying connection with self and loved ones; safe, respectful feedback on how others experience us; and clarity of purpose to pursue and cultivate what matters most.
