Welcome to Kathleen Oravec, Sacramento Therapist & Marriage Counselor
Kathleen Oravec, LMFT · (916) 912-4777
Are you and your partner having trouble communicating without dissolving into conflict that seems to never get resolved? Are you tired of feeling anxious and walking on eggshells? Do you have difficulty expressing yourself and getting your needs met? Do you often end up in the same relationship rut without being able to find a way out of an unsatisfying cycle of blame and regret? Is the trust between you eroding? Are you using your cell phones more than you are talking and listening to each other? Are you a couple in a crisis and don’t know where to turn?
Perhaps you need an effective way to get your needs met in your relationships, or in your workplace. Or, you’re a parent trying to understand how to relate to your adolescent? I do more than just listen and say “Uh .huh”. My approach is straightforward..
I help couples and individuals in Sacramento resolve communication issues impacting family and professional relationships. I also aide with adolescent challenges, including self esteem, academic pressures, and social anxiety. It is about the ability to help find the answers and chart a new course while figuring out who you are and what you want out of life. I support you while respecting your family and spiritual values.
I have fine-tuned the ability to rapidly assess, analyze and identify patterns and to apply problem-solving skills. I am a supportive, compassionate listener, skilled marriage and family therapist and guide and a sounding board. Together we can create a compassionate safe place where you can experience the relief of feeling heard, validated, and receiving the help you need to deal with the challenges of life.
Therapy is a tool for anyone searching for change and overall well-being. It can be very intimidating to reach out to someone to discuss the most intimate details of your life. My initial goal is to create an empathetic, trusting, and comfortable relationship with you. It is ultimately about the ability to find the answers and chart new courses while figuring out who you are and what you want out of life. I’m here to listen and give you strategies to make the changes that are within your reach. Let’s talk.
Just call (916) 912-4777 (leaving a message if necessary and I will do my best to get back to you the same day, generally within a few minutes to a few hours.) I enjoy receiving calls and e-mails and look forward to hearing from you.
