Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
It is my desire to help my clients to work through their concerns, to their goals, in the fewest number of visits, in the shortest amount of time, and with the least amount of expense. I utilize an interactive approach which involves both in session processing of thoughts, feelings, and behaviors, and education regarding skills/tools which can be used outside of the session to endeavor to help heal or enhance significant relationships. For those desiring it, I embrace a Christian approach which emphasizes focus on the healing of relationships with others as especially related to the relationship one has with God and with ourselves. (Matthew 22:34-40) While relationships are quite mysterious, I endeavor to help my clients to find simple and straightforward answers and approaches to healthier lives. In accordance with this, I do entertain brief introductory calls, at no charge, to ascertain if a more formal assessment is desired or free referral to a more appropriate help is warranted. For further information, simply call. At His and your service. Tim Scanlon M.S.

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.
