Hi! I’m Jeanne Serra and I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in California. I am passionate about helping people to navigate through their suffering to create their best life.
I believe that we all live in our own personal reality; our experiences and life events shape the way we see and experience the world. My job as a therapist is to look at you as an individual and attempt to "enter your world" in order to see things from your perspective. It is through this lens that we can work together to determine what direction to take moving forward.
My approach to counseling is relationally based. I believe that the most important component to effective change in counseling is the therapeutic relationship. Without this foundation, there is no progression forward. It is through the therapeutic relationship that I am able to facilitate positive change. I use my natural empathic approach to connect to the suffering of my clients and assist them in moving through this to a place of healing.
“Life can be so complicated, and at times we all need some extra support to find our way.”
Everyone experiences suffering. In fact this is what bonds us in our shared humanity. Many of us suffer in silence, too afraid to reach out or unsure where to go for help. Instead of bringing us together suffering often causes us to isolate.
We all experience times of mental dis-EASE
Life is hard! Times of suffering is inevitable because of the simple fact that we are human. We all experience moments of self-doubt, negative thinking, depressive feelings, and anxiety of the unknown. Sometimes these feelings can overwhelm us in their intensity, knocking us off our feet.
Anxiety and Depression affects us all, because we are all human and all experience times of suffering. When the anxiety and depression create barriers to us being able to fully participate in our own lives, this can be a time to seek outside support to find our way back.
Someone to walk beside you
This is when we need someone to come beside us and join us on our journey. I am here to walk beside you on this journey to break free from the chains that are holding you back from becoming your best self.
