Today you are one step closer to a new you where you feel empowered and on a positive path to growth and well-being.
As a solution-focused therapist, my goal is to help you uncover your true potential and lead a life that is worth celebrating.
While we can't change difficult situations of the past, we can work together to better understand and resolve challenges in your life.
By applying complementary therapy approaches and techniques, we will unearth long-standing behavior patterns or negative perceptions
that may be holding you back from experiencing a more fulfilling and meaningful life.
If you're looking for extra support and guidance through a challenging situation, if you are sufering from stress or stress related problems, if you're ready to move in a new direction in your life, or if you are searching for peace or mind, I look forward to working with you to help you achieve your goals and find your balance.
I have over 18 years experience as a marriage and family therapist working with a broad spectrum of clients. Among my areas of expertise are stress management, women's issues, anxiety, trauma, coaching, EMDR, and Neurotherapy. I work especially well with women experiencing life and emotional changes.
I am an interactive, solution-focused therapist. My therapeutic approach is to provide support and practical feedback to help clients effectively address personal life challenges. I integrate complementary methodologies and techniques to offer a highly personalized approach tailored to each client. With compassion and understanding, I work with each individual to help them build on their strengths and attain the personal growth they are committed to accomplishing.

" Dr. S,
I just want to thank you for everything you have offered me over the last few months. I have really got a lot out of your group, that I can now apply in society. This place has been a home for me over the last few months. I am really going to miss your knowledge and guidance. You have made a serious change in my thinking, and my life in general! So I just need to say thank you again for everything!!! "
"Dear Dr. Sedano,
Although I did not want to have to attend counseling I actually started looking forward to Thursdays. You really have taught me a lot. It helped me open my eyes to some important things that were going on in my life. Thank you. You are a wonderful person and it was my pleasure to have met you. Lucky to have your words and knowledge every Thursday."
Yours, Jon L
"An ode to Dr. Sedano
Life comes at you in a circular motion,
moment frozen in time
did you catch the nuance?
did you discern the lesson?
did you hear yourself calling out to you?
where to go... what to do...
only you have the intuitive ability to know
did you follow your heart?
did you lead with c9omapassion?
did you let the mind, body or soul rule your actions?
how did you get here?
who led the way?
who is the master of your destiny?
take control, follow your own lead
the road you navigate will be your fate
do you trust yourself?
in life there are no mistakes
all things lead to your destination
do you know where you are going?
that is the question
find your point of origin and steady yourself.
the journey has begun
are you ready?
Thanks for helping me open my eyes and becoming more aware!"
"Ms. Elizabeth Sedano
This letter is to inform you that I Gene C a first war veteran, that has had much counseling in his life and is very grateful for your guidance and understanding. It has been my pleasure to be a part of your group.
You unlike any counselor has given me a better understanding of overall patience, a better will to live by and when I go home to see my children family and friends, I will share with them the gifts and the secrets that I have learned from you.
If everyone in your group has the willingness and the ability to live by what you have taught me I believe each individual will go very far in life. What you helped me see has almost given me a new life and a reason to go forward.
So from the bottom of my heart thank you very much as you deserve more than I can give you."

Just wanted you to know you make a difference! "
