Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I believe that effective therapy does not necessarily have to be difficult, painful or long-term. I specialize in Collaborative and Solution-Focused approaches to help clients overcome challenges and create solutions and change. I see individuals as truly heroic, struggling against problems rather than “having” or “being” the problem. This can allow your inherent knowledge, strengths and resources to emerge, opening new possibilities for change and growth. I can help you improve relationships and intimacy, manage stress and anger, cope with crises and life changes, or address fears, obsessions or compulsions. We can work to overcome whatever might be causing you to feel "stuck," unhappy or hopeless. My experience has been in school settings, clinics, a substance abuse facility and private practice. I work with individuals of all ages, couples or partners, and families.

Featured Therapist 

Judith McFarland, MA

Judith McFarland M.A..

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist
Santa Rosa, CA

I am in private practice, delivering telemedicine via Skype and FaceTime or by phone. My area of special emphasis is helping people improve their important relationships, and working with my clients to decrease and stop depression. If you are reading this, chances are one or more of your important relationshps are not working very well. Whether it's difficulty with a partner or spouse, teens or parents, friends or co-workers, a troubled relationship is painful.
