Santa Barbara and Goleta Individual Counseling

Individual Counseling Services

We can help if you are feeling “not like yourself.” There are times in your life when you may be feeling more stressed, irritated, angry, or isolated than usual or you are in emotional pain that is more difficult than day-to-day ups and downs.

During these periods it is common to feel confused or unsure about your thoughts and feelings. Coming to therapy can help to alleviate those feelings and make you feel better.

A Unique Therapeutic Approach

Our process is different and customized for everyone. We establish a meaningful connection with you and lighten the load of what you’ve been experiencing. Then, we’ll work to identify what is restricting your potential. Working through those underlying issues will help you feel better and see an improvement in your life.

The bottom line is you want to feel better quickly, and we can help you get there!
