I believe each of us holds many strengths that can become hidden by life circumstances. To ease our pain or stress, we may try to cope in ways that, overtime, defeat our best efforts. Whether you’re in a difficult relationship, isolating from others, have lost a loved one, or if you are suffering from anxiety or chronic pain, I would like to help you find greater balance, and a higher quality of life through understanding, healing support, and cognitive awareness. Together, we can work to find or restore a healthier, lighter, more productive you.
I specialize in the following areas: Teaching communication skills to individuals and couples who struggle to relate productively; Anxiety and depression; Chronic pain/medical concerns; Adolescent issues; Women’s issues; Grief; Post traumatic stress; Life transitions for all ages.
Deep relaxation techniques and hypnotherapy are additional tools I sometimes use that can be beneficial. In addition, I have worked extensively with teachers and medical professionals experiencing work-related and personal stress.

Rachele Murray, MFT
Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Rachele.2

Rachel Murray is a licensed marriage family therapist and a 500 hr registered yoga teacher. She received her MS in counseling from Cal State Fullerton in 2002 and became licensed in 2009. Rachel has a strong interest in the mind body connection and finding healing, health and wellbeing through physical practices like yoga and deep breathing. Rachel has come to believe through her observations in working in various outpatient settings, that many are struggling to the extent that they have lost touch with or have an impaired relationship to the Self –wether it be through early conditioning, a deficient or painful family of origin experience or trauma.
Rachel seeks to give clients a safe space within which to begin to explore into aspects of their self experience that are often disregarded or pushed out of awareness so that they may begin to find a fuller, more whole version of themselves. For some , this may ultimately lead to a decrease in the experiences of anxiety and depression. Rachel takes a predominantly psychodynamic/relational approach so that the clients patterns of relating can be given emphasis as they begin to emerge in the client therapist relationship.
Having worked in a variety of outpatient settings for most of her career, Rachel has had a great deal of experience working with clients suffering from anxiety and depression. As a result, she has become well versed in the applications of Cognitive Behavioral therapy. This approach assists clients with identifying maladaptive and distorted thoughts often related to negative core beliefs they hold about themselves. Rachel believes in helping client’s to identify and refute and dismantle the negative core beliefs that may be keeping them stuck and preventing them from enjoying healthy self esteem and a full range of experiences.

Janine Schroth is a licensed psychologist who earned her PhD from UCLA. Dr. Schroth works extensively with individuals experiencing symptoms of anxiety, OCD, depression, trauma and PTSD. Her training and experience in cognitive based therapy, positive neuroplasticity and mindfulness-based approaches help give clients tools and methods that enhance their well-being and resiliency. Stress, an unavoidable reality in life, and how it’s handled, is shown to be a major factor in quality and success in life. Enhancing this ability often times includes strengthening skills that underlie resiliency, such as awareness, adaptability, self-regulation, relationship with self and others, sense of purpose, flexibility of mind, and a sense of agency. Often times we know what we want to do, but are stuck in neurobiological patterns created over the course of our lives. Fortunately, we are not locked in forever to these habits of mind and body. We can break out and develop new adaptive patterns that lead to success and well-being. There is hope. Dr. Schroth’s work is informed by a wide range of cutting edge research in brain and behavior, cognitive behavioral mindfulness training and psychosomatic and behavioral medicine. Dr. Schroth is certified by the American Academy of Experts in traumatic stress, and is also is a board member of Straight Talk, a behavioral health organization in Orange County providing counseling, parenting classes, and residential rehabilitation for those suffering from substance abuse.
