I appreciate you taking the time to learn about me and consider working together. As there are likely many therapists who can accompany you on your journey, here’s a bit about me, which may help you make a choice. I have worked with many people navigating anxiety, depression, stressors, life transitions, trauma, substance use, learning & neurological differences, and relationship issues. If we work together, you can expect to learn more about your authentic self – who you are at the core. I am curious to identify the unique gifts you bring to the world and illuminate how you can use those to address challenges and opportunities in your life. I will listen intently, be curious about your thoughts and feelings, and respect you are an expert in your own life. Whether your decision to seek a therapist is something you’ve considered for a long time or a decision just made, you may be experiencing a mix of thoughts and feelings. Perhaps some vulnerability asking for support from and confiding in someone you don’t yet know, maybe uncertainty about how therapy will help you. I view the very act of reading my profile as an act of courage and hope.

Are you struggling with issues related to depression, anxiety, substance use, trauma, grief, or major life changes? You, like the many clients I've supported over the last 15 years, may be struggling with circumstances outside of your control, feel dissatisfied with the way substances are impacting your life, or are struggling to stay motivated or connected to the version of yourself you would like to be. Using basic principles from common and evidence based practices such as ACT and CBT, combined with client centered and solutions focused approach, I can work with you to help you impact the change you would like to see in your life.

Hello, I’m a California Licensed Clinical Social Worker. My goal is to create a safe and trusting environment for you to explore and overcome any challenges you face while providing the emotional support you need. I have worked with teens and adults to overcome their life challenges and develop the coping skills necessary to become the best version of themselves. I spent time practicing my therapeutic skills as an intern trainee at the California State University, Fresno university clinic. Here I began to focus on working with teens and young adults to overcome challenges associated with life transitions, burnout, relationship issues, and mood disorders such as anxiety, grief, and depression. Working as part of a grant program with parolees and then a group private practice, I also gained significant experience working with individuals who have trauma history. Through this work, I was able to learn and implement a variety of modalities to effectively address the impacts of trauma. I love my work as a therapist and would be happy to be part of your journey.

Hello, and thank you for taking the time to invest in your mental health. Are you having a hard time balancing family, work, and life? Are you struggling with avoidance and anxiety about the future? Are you just ready for a change and aren't sure how to make a plan of action? It's difficult to grow without support and even harder at times to find the tools to carve your own path. If you feel ready to explore how to reach your unique potential; let's figure out some goals, what's in the way, and how we can work through those challenges so you can reach your goals. My background in research, crisis care, inpatient, partial hospitalization, intensive outpatient, in-home therapy, group therapy and outpatient therapy has given me exposure to several forms of therapy. I am currently practicing CBT, DBT, ACT and some elements of other forms of therapy. If you are curious how we could approach your challenges and goals, please reach out and we can discuss options. Consultations are welcomed.

Hi there, I’m Shanda. Does your child or teenager have a lot of “big feelings” leading to behaviors that are becoming difficult to understand or manage as a parent? Are you an adoptive or foster parent having trouble connecting with your child or teen? This can be a confusing and challenging role to fulfill. The same parenting rules do not apply to a "non-traditional" family system. If your biological, adopted, or foster child or teenager is struggling with depression, anxiety, anger, or ADHD, or has experienced a stressful life event such as bullying, relocation, grief/loss, or trauma and you’re not sure how to help as a parent, I am here to listen to your family’s needs and guide you toward hope, healing, and positive change. I empower parents and caregivers to support their children and families to overcome life’s challenges that can result in those “big feelings”. As a California Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and a Registered Play Therapist, I love blending play and art therapy, mindfulness, and conversation to get to the root of your and/or your child’s struggles. In our sessions together, I'll provide a safe, non-judgmental space and utilize evidence-based techniques so you and your family can overcome life’s challenges and connect on a deeper level. I’d love to meet you and work together!

Welcome! Thank you for taking the time to read my bio. I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in Pennsylvania and California. I’ve always been fascinated by the human experience. Life is a complicated journey that at times can be very distressing. We as humans need each other to survive, heal, and actualize. I know starting therapy can be quite vulnerable. I truly believe engaging in therapy and the therapeutic relationship can support healing, change, and growth. I meet with individuals from a wide range of backgrounds that often struggle with depression, anxiety, mood disorders, and life transitions. Some identify as LGBTQ+ and need support with their coming out process or with gender identity exploration. Many of the people I work with are having difficulty adjusting to life connected to an unexpected life event or are experiencing challenges at their workplace. In sessions, we will explore what you desire, the steps you are willing to take, your strengths, and what barriers are getting in your way. My hope is to support you in living a full and healthy life.

Choosing a therapist can be challenging and confusing and one might ask, what does therapy involve? From my experience Therapy involves developing a very special relationship between a professionally licensed practitioner called a therapist and one or more people seeking to collaboratively define and achieve constructive change. This relationship is referred to as the therapeutic bond and is considered one of the most important parts of successful therapy. As such our first step in therapy is, from day one, to form that bond by establishing a trusting, non-shaming environment where any child, adolescent, person, couple, or family will feel safe and sense the therapist is on their side, listens and understands. Therapy on my behalf will involve empathy, genuineness, and mindful acceptance while we collaboratively establish therapeutic changes / goals you feel are both desired and are ready to achieve. Our sessions will involve the language of change as perceived by you the client(s), and constructive finding of solutions. You will be able to present your story without fear of rejection or shame. I enjoy working with individuals, couples, families, and am very effective with middle schoolers, adolescents young adults, and people working in the stressful world of business, hi tech and active military service members, and veterans. During my time as a therapist I have built a reputation as caring, effective and someone who has my client’s best interests at heart. If you feel a connection or that contacting me could be of value, I would be very happy to hear from you. Until such time I wish you the very best in your quest. Sincerely, Mike Michael Durrigan Ca.
