Many events can leave us feeling adrift and uncertain about how to move forward — adolescence, global pandemic, past trauma, recent changes in relationships. Los Altos Psychotherapy can work with you to uncover and resolve the underlying causes of these feelings and behaviors to make lasting positive change.
Our therapists work with clients on a wide range of personal and family challenges, including depression, anxiety, and disrupted family systems. We specialize in difficult to resolve issues like trauma, eating disorders, and teens in crisis.
Everyone experiences anxiety in their daily lives. Anxiety is a natural response to stress and can even be helpful in certain situations, such as motivating us to prepare for a big presentation or performance. However, if there’s severe anxiety, when anxiety becomes overwhelming and interferes with our day-to-day functioning, it can be incredibly debilitating, and it may be time to consider anxiety treatment.
Depression is an often severe mental health disorder that can affect people of all ages and backgrounds. Depression is characterized by persistent feelings of hopelessness, sadness, and worthlessness, as well as changes in appetite, sleep, and energy levels
At Los Altos Psychotherapy we specialize in treating eating disorders. We understand the deep impact an eating disorder can have on your physical and emotional well-being, as well as on your relationships with those around you. Our treatment team of skilled therapists are here to guide you on a path to recovery using a relational method of treatment.
Family counseling is a specialized form of counseling that focuses on improving communication, resolving conflicts, and enhancing family relationships. It recognizes that the well-being of individuals is directly linked to the overall health of the family unit.
Relationships, especially with a life partner, are the most important part of our lives. And like any other part, they require attention, effort, and sometimes, professional guidance. Relationship counseling, often called couples therapy or marriage counseling, provides a safe and supportive space for couples to navigate challenges, improve communication, and strengthen their bond.
Trauma therapy, also known as trauma-focused therapy, is a specialized form of psychotherapy designed to help individuals cope with and overcome the effects of trauma. This type of therapy aims to help individuals process traumatic experiences, manage symptoms related to trauma, and ultimately heal from its effects.
