Thea Stanford, M.Ed., LMFT

We all need to make changes at times throughout our lives to find fulfillment and feel like the best version of ourselves, but sometimes it can be difficult to know where and how to start. Therapy can help you to build both the self-awareness and the self-agency required to start making the shifts you want to in your life, whether they are relational, emotional, thought-based, or behavioral. 

I believe that growth happens at the place where safety and challenge meet, and I aim to work with each client to find the right balance for them. Connection and trust are imperative for safety and you can be assured that I will always approach you with respect, compassion, and humor. 

My training as a family therapist means that I take into account the relationships and experiences that have shaped you, whether you are seeking therapy as an individual or as part of a couple or family. With me, you can expect to safely approach difficult emotions, examine patterns of thought and behavior in various areas of your life, work to understand how your unique personal history contributes to these patterns, and be empowered to make deliberate choices that will help you feel in control. Couples and families working with me often seek ways to manage conflict, communicate more effectively, and increase connection. My practice is open to and affirmative of families of all types. 

I often work with people reporting issues related to anxiety, depression, substance abuse, relationships, emotional regulation, grief and loss, and adoption, and I have extensive experience working with adolescents and young adults. If you think we are a good fit, don’t hesitate to reach out. I look forward to hearing from you!
