Therapists in Goleta, California CA
Psychologist, PsyD, MA
Pain is inevitable in life but suffering doesn't have to be. Suffering arises when anxiety rules us. We are anxious about facing our fears, so we avoid them. We are anxious about letting others get close, so we isolate ourselves. Psychotherapy can provide a doorway out of these loops. We cannot prevent difficulties and tragedies. However, we can learn to manage our internal reactions to external circumstances and relationships. Self-empowerment comes from finding the courage to face our internal world in all its messiness and complexity.

Pastoral Counselor/Therapist, EdD, DSS
Soul Musings is coaching/ counseling with Dr. Connie Stomper which is focused on helping people overcome stress, anxiety and depression as well as chronic illness (which I have lived through and overcome.) or who just want to pursue personal growth. This work is for people who seek to live in an expanded experience of joy, loving and peace. In addition to my training in psychology, counseling skills, my work is informed by my decade of organizational consulting and training where I worked with communication skills, listening skills, problem-solving, group decision-making and team building. I also have extensive training in relationship and group dynamics. This experience helps me assist clients with inter-personal and communication skills in both personal life and work situations.

Marriage and Family Therapist, MS, AMFT
Are you tired of fighting with your partner and being misunderstood? Do you feel like you are trying your best but nothing seems to work? Do you miss the person you first fell in love with? Or maybe you and your partner are thinking about marriage but want to work on some important things first? These are all signs that you could benefit from couple's therapy. I am a bilingual Hispanic therapist who specializes in helping couples "speak the same language" so that they can better understand each other's needs and grow closer together. I also have plenty of experience working with people with chronic illnesses and helping them and their family reduce the stress that the illness may have caused in the home. I get that seeking help is not always easy, but if you are wanting to start this journey towards a more healthy relationship and a life with more joy, I am only one call or email away. I am offering sessions in English or Spanish upon request. Call or email me for a free 15-min consultation!
