  • Therapy Tailored To You

    Welcome to my therapy practice! 

    My name is Liz Paolozzi, I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist located in Los Altos, California. I provide therapy services, both in-person and over video, to teens and adults living in California, Idaho, and Ohio. 

    I treat a range of mental health issues, including: 

    Anxiety

    Depression

    Eating Disorders/Disordered Eating/Body Image Issues

    Relationship Struggles

    Confidence/Low Self-Worth

    How Does Therapy Work? 

    Our therapy process will start with you reaching out to me, either by phone, email, or my website. We will then schedule a 15-minute complimentary consultation over phone or video so that I can learn more about you and your therapy goals, and see if it feels like a good fit to start working together.

    In our initial session, I will be getting to know you better and getting a more in-depth sense of how I can provide you with the best therapy possible. This will also be a time for us to establish some more concrete goals for your therapy. 

    Your therapy will be customized to meet your specific struggles, strengths, and goals. I use a variety of methods in my therapy, primarily evidence based therapy practices (i.e. researched and proven to be helpful to many people) – primarily Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). We will work together to identify which of these methods work best for you,  and identify the changes that you can make to create a life that you can thrive in. 

    How often will I come to therapy? 

    I generally tend to start with weekly 50-minute sessions, this is flexible and can be more or less frequent based on your needs and availability. 

    What are CBT and ACT?

    Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is based on the idea that we FEEL the way we THINK. When we get stuck in negative cycles of thinking, we are left feeling anxious, depressed, and miserable. 

    The goal of CBT is to identify what thoughts are keeping you stuck, and actually change the way you think, which will change the way you feel. Fast. 

    Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) incorporates concepts from CBT (awareness of our thoughts), while also practicing non-judgement of, and separation from, those unwanted thoughts and feelings. It also helps us increase our joy and confidence through commitment to living according to our values. 

    My mission is to equip you with the tools that you need to navigate your life in a way that leaves you feeling calm, confident, and excited about your life, both present and future!

    I encourage you to take this courageous step, and reach out for a free 15-minute consultation

    I look forward to working with you!
