Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
Hello, my name is Patience Taba. Providing therapy and being dedicated to assisting individuals on their journey to mental health wellness has been my life’s passion. I offer therapy in a kind, respectful environment that allows the client to discover their feelings, their passions and the direction of their life. Through therapy, I hope to assist each client on their journey toward creating the life of their heart’s desire. I want to support each client in identifying and accessing their life given skills, gifts, talents and coping skills they already have within them. Through listening, offering different ways of seeing an issue, educating, informing and challenging clients, I believe that clients have the opportunity to move forward past obstacles, towards their goals. Together we will identify goals for your treatment, identify challenges to achieving those goals, and work together in using a variety of interventions that will give you the tools to meet those goals. Since 1992, I have been working in both private and public mental health sectors as both a licensed clinical social worker and a clinical supervisor to mental health professionals. I have worked in mental health, sexual abuse treatment, child welfare, adoptions (both public and private) and family therapy. My experience includes individual, couple and group work with children, adults, couples, families and blended families with issues related to individual growth, relationships, life transitions, grief/loss, anxiety, depression, trauma, childhood abuse, codependency, anger, infertility, adoption issues and parenting. Call or email to set up a free 20 minute consultation by phone to find out more about the counseling process. Sliding scale is available for those in need as space permits. Reduced fee for pre-licensed therapists (MFT Interns and ASWs) is available.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist
Walnut Creek, CA

At the core of many personal issues lie old messages of your sense of worth. Those messages conveyed to you while growing-up that minimized your self-esteem. The journey inward toward your past can often be frightening and disheartening. By slowly revisiting the wounded part of yourself, old repetitive behaviors can cease to exist. A new sense of kindness toward yourself will begin to emerge. Allow me to travel with you to discover what is buried deep inside of your soul, exploring what keeps you from becoming all that you want to be.
