Santa Cruz Psychotherapist, Licia Ginne

I believe people work to achieve success and happiness in the best ways they know how. There are times in our lives when we feel our ability to solve problems or move forward is hampered by a lack of options and understanding. I have found counseling or psychotherapy (two words for the same thing) can be helpful. I can offer help to expand perspectives and find alternative solutions. Helping people along this process of change brings meaning to my life, makes me curious and is how I make my living as a psychotherapist.

I blend over 40 years of experience in the addiction and mental health field to create a working style of insight-oriented psychotherapy and contemporary psychoanalysis (this isn’t your old Freudian analysis) we create a collaborative relationship to explore and understand the patterns in your life, to expand options and uncover compassion. My experience includes working in the following types of programs: In-patient & out-patient adult alcohol & drug programs (including one of the few adult programs with pregnant addicts and mothers with their children living on site), in-patient eating disorders, out-patient sexual addiction, out-patient & in-patient psychiatric, community mental health programs and the in-patient & out-patient John Bradshaw Co-dependency program. As well as having maintained a full time private practice for over 35 years. In these years I have helped people address their addiction or abuse of alcohol, drugs and sexual behaviors; those with eating disorders, depression, anxiety, stress, relationship struggles (to get in one or get out of one) and relationship and marital counseling, communication problems; adults with histories of childhood abuse; and people simply wanting to make creative changes to their lives.

I have maintained a private psychotherapy practice in Los Angeles & Santa Monica for the past 31 years and now moved my practice to Santa Cruz, California. I have found the deepest rewards in being a psychotherapist and am excited about bringing my style of psychotherapy to Santa Cruz.
