Team Approach

Psychotherapy and coaching at Silicon Valley Therapy is unique in that it is done within a team-based model. This means you will have the opportunity, within licensing limits, to work with a therapist and/or a coach. Not everyone needs both but it can be incredibly valuable to integrate these services when appropriate. Each growth or treatment plan is customized for each individual, couple, or family. Your first session with your provider will help determine if you are best served by a therapist, coach, or both. All Silicon Valley Therapy providers have access to other therapists, coaches, and a psychiatrist for consultation. This ensures that your experience at Silicon Valley Therapy is backed by a wide variety of healthcare disciplines and a deep knowledge base.

The SVT Approach

At Silicon Valley Therapy we recognize that humans are complex and change is hard.  As a result, our approach to psychotherapy and coaching embraces four key areas of assessment and growth. We assess functioning in all of these domains right away. This helps us create specific goals and target the parts of your life that need the most attention.

Psycho-spiritual health
Emotions swim in the psyche and they must be properly understood to live well.  Psychological health is essential for a well-lived life. If you have a spiritual path it is important that it is in sync and working well with your psychological health. From anxiety to depression, Asperger’s to ADHD, trauma to addiction, and parenting to job burnout, healing begins with clarity and acceptance of what is present now. The safe structured therapeutic or coaching space at Silicon Valley Therapy is the ideal place to begin your journey of growth and healing.

Brain & Body Health
Is there an underlying brain or body issue that is impeding your optimal health?  The five pillars of health are essential to assess within this domain: nutrition, exercise, sleep, social, and stress management.

Optimal Well-being
On a scale of -3 to positive 3 how would you rate your level of well-being? Traditional psychology’s goal was to help people be quote Les Miserable. Quote this would be a move from -3 to -1 on the well-being scale. Coaches at Silicon Valley Therapy use theories and techniques from positive psychology, a branch of psychology that is interested in moving people from 0 to 3 on the well-being scale. Let Silicon Valley Therapy providers help you optimize and maximize your well-being.
