Psychotherapy

Children, Adolescents, Adults, Couples, Families and Groups.

Are you feeling stuck, worried, unhappy, anxious, or stressed?

Are you struggling with a life transition?

Are you having relationship problems?

Do you have habits that are getting in the way of enjoying your life?

We all can lose our sense of balance and feel confused, worried, sad, or even overwhelmed. This often happens during times of life change, a break-up, the birth of a child, a relationship change, or school/career transition. It sometimes happens as we face the ups-and-downs of everyday life. Other times, something very stressful happens. Our relationships, work or school performance, and happiness decline, and things just don’t seem to be working for us the way we’d like.

At such times, it can be difficult to see our way out. Often, we continue to try to cope in ways that worked before, but are no longer effective, leaving us feeling frustrated and dissatisfied.

Psychotherapy can help. Therapy can help you regain a sense of balance and hope. It also can help you develop new ways to cope. In my experience, counseling helps you reconnect with your strengths, remove obstacles, and develop new ways to meet life’s challenges. Relationships and work performance can improve, and you can feel more satisfied with yourself and your life.

As a licensed psychologist, I offer psychotherapy and counseling services to adolescents and adults, including individual psychotherapy, couples counseling, family therapy, and groups. This is a collaborative process in which we work together to understand your concerns, develop goals for therapy, and help you work toward positive change. I offer you a compassionate, safe, and supportive atmosphere in which we can understand and explore your possibilities.

I have worked successfully in therapy with clients struggling in many areas, including:

  • Abuse / Trauma
  • ADHD
  • Addiction and Recovery
  • Anxiety
  • Depression and Mood Disorders
  • Family Issues / Parent-Child Conflict
  • Grief
  • Infertility
  • Legal Issues
  • Life Transitions
  • Marital Issues
  • Medical Problems / Health Concerns
  • Parenting / Co-Parenting
  • Relationship Difficulties
  • Self-Esteem and Identity Issues
  • Sexual Harassment
  • Stress Management
  • Work Difficulties / Career Issues

Ultimately, you will decide what you want to accomplish, and I will use my experience and knowledge to help you reach your goals. You may wish to focus primarily on reducing symptoms quickly, or you may choose to explore and address underlying causes of the symptoms so that inner changes can occur and you will be more resilient in the future. You have options, and they evolve and grow as you do.

If you are looking for psychotherapy and counseling services, I would be happy to talk with you more about how I might help.

In The Media / Jane Beresford, Psy.D.

E! Channel

E!Dr. Beresford provided psychological screenings and evaluations for “What’s Eating You?”, E! Channel’s reality show about extreme eating disorders. The series chronicled the lives of men and women whose very survival was at risk as they battled not only their distorted body images, but also self-created, life-threatening food rituals and compulsions.

Quoted in Books
Manopause: Your Guide To Surviving His Changing Life Dr. Beresford was interviewed by Lisa Friedman Bloch, co-author with Kathy Kirtland Silverman of “Manopause: Your Guide To Surviving His Changing Life” (Hay House, 2012), which explores how biological and psychological factors collide with the societal pressures men face, and provides advice on how women can help themselves and their men move through and enjoy this sometimes challenging phase. Dr. Beresford's experiences in working with couples during this transitional time are included in the book.
