Counseling And Therapy Services
At Your Gray Matters, counseling and therapy are practiced with individuals, adolescents, couples, and families to help create actionable practices that bring greater joy, strength, and resiliency to all relationships
This practice is both an art and a science. It is varied in its approach and technique. I work with individuals, couples, and adolescents, to improve mental, emotional, and relational concerns of all kinds. This also includes diagnosing mental illness and assessing relationship conflicts.
Both individual and couples therapy are most beneficial when a significant relationship has been developed between the therapist and client(s). Therefore, the more consistently you have therapy, you should expect to benefit greatly. Clients report that coming in for a few visits have helped them make significant changes. Therefore, the more time invested in counseling will typically result in more positive results.
Individual Counseling in Simi Valley
Therapy is a unique way to connect with a person without judgment or bias as it may occur in a relationship with a friend or family member. This is an opportunity for you to individually take time for yourself. We can explore your symptoms of depression, anxiety, low self esteem, relationship problems or career related issues. Individual therapy is an experience where you are the focus and your needs are explored. Many people do not have trusted advisers that they can explore intimate topics with. Individual therapy can provide this platform to build a trusted relationship.
Marriage Counseling in Simi Valley
Relationships that are in or out of a crisis benefit from experiencing couples therapy. Clients may come to counseling after a recent event that has caused their marriage to notice that support is needed to help resolve conflict. Or time has gone by trying to make changes without success. Conversely, couples that are going through normal life transitions or wanting to improve communication and their relationship attend counseling to enrich and grow their relationship to help it to mature. Either way due to a recent traumatic even such as an affair, or noticing romance is decreasing over the years. Both couples can have the opportunity to meet with a therapist to explore goals and resolve conflicts.

Christian Counseling in Simi Valley
For many clients having the option to explore their spirituality with their therapist is valuable. My encouragement is to find a therapist that you most connect with that will learn about your faith based issues and beliefs. I have special training in Biblical Counseling. I find that this training can be applied to many faith based belief systems. I have clients who identify as Christians, Jewish, atheist, etc. No matter what your background, if spirituality is an important part of your lifes journey, then I would like to help you get in touch with your spiritual self to help develop your growth.
