Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
My name is Ritsa Tsangarides and I am a LMFT. In my training as a MFT I choose to seek out a variety of areas in my field and in return I have experience with a wide range of mental health issues. I have worked with a variety of ages, ethnic backgrounds and cultures. I feel that this has shaped me to becoming a very well-rounded therapist. My specialty is working with children and their families. I also am certified to provide an inventory tool for couples married or thinking on getting married. It is a great tool and one that I have administered to many couples, which has helped their relationship. I also have extensive experience in working with the juvenile population and the criminal system with gangs. I have provided group session to couples, kids and individuals. I also have experience with a variety of issues such as depression, anxiety and loss issues. I am looking forward to meeting you and discussing your individual needs.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist
San Rafael, CA

My therapeutic style is non-judgmental, supportive, and interactive. My work is based on establishing a safe environment where trust can grow. I view symptoms as a way to call attention to unrecognized needs and unexpressed feelings. The goals of treatment include; learning to identify and express emotions, learning to set appropriate boundaries, developing skills such as self-soothing and impluse control and improving self-esteem.
