Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
You may be wanting relief from specific symptoms or help reaching specific goals. Or maybe you’re struggling with how it feels to be you in the world, and longing to feel more comfortable in your own skin. Perhaps you’re seeking a new way of relating to others that feels more genuine and fulfilling. Psychotherapy and psychoanalysis can help you find relief and achieve a more authentic way of living. By working together in the context of a safe therapeutic relationship, we can help you become aware of what’s contributing to your difficulties, which can help you find the freedom to feel and live in a more satisfying way. We build our Selves out of the relationship “lumber” that surrounds us as we grow and develop. Research shows that much of this happens on an implicit or unconscious level in our brains, which is why it’s so hard to create significant lasting change even when we want to change. That’s also why it can be so helpful to have a compassionate, empathic therapist trained to identify implicit/unconscious thoughts, feelings, and patterns that may be keeping you stuck. Once we identify and understand them, you’re better able to see when they’re occuring, which enables you to choose new, healthier and more adaptive outcomes. Please feel free to call me if I can provide any information to help you decide if this is a good fit for you.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist 
Redding, CA 96001

Approximately half of Dr. Copitch's practice involves children and families. The other half is devoted to individual therapy. And, as Dr. Copitch often jokes, "the third half of my work is devoted to school consultations, business consultations, and corporate trainings."
