Let's Connect (805) 243-2891
Hello, my legal name is Joseph but you can call me Tommy. My work as a therapist is mostly informed by Attachment Theory and I currently work with individuals ranging from young adults to seniors. As human beings, we are meant to seek connection with others. Connection with a compassionate, caring, and knowledgeable therapist is one of the best ways to develop a more secure sense of attachment to the world around you. This connection can lead to the positive, long-term change you are seeking.
Change is hard. Long term change involves facing things about ourselves that are painful. Learning to work through painful experiences and emotions is often the spearhead needed to meet your goals. As your therapist, I can help you to work through emotional difficulties, develop meaning, and come out the other side ready to face the world.
I believe that you are the expert on your life and that effective change comes from within. You don't need to change on your own. My job is to partner with with you and give you the secure base you need to make the kind of progress you have been looking for. Contact me to set up a free consultation if interested.
