Thought Life

What you believe about the world determines the way you live your life! -AW Tozer
What you believe about yourself defines and shapes all of your relationships! - John Kane
Thoughts are the fuel of your soul. When you have negative beliefs about yourself, compulsive addictive cravings, fear filled thoughts, trauma memories, unforgiveness, or any other kind of obsessive or compulsive thoughts, they derail your relationships, your well being, and the trajectory of your life. At Growth and Change Counseling you will learn how to take control and transform your thought life into a life fulfilling world view that will enable you to experience fulfilling and healthy relationships, an authentic view of self, and greater satisfaction in your life.

Purpose

Happiness is a very poor measurement of a well lived life. Satisfaction and fulfillment are much better measurements of a well lived life. There are many people who have suffered greatly and yet have turned life into a beautiful tapestry. They might not tell you they are happy, but they will tell you they are satisfied and fulfilled.
Keep in mind, meaningless does not come from being tired of pain, it comes from being tired of pleasure. - Ravi Z

Relationships

You are a relational being, wired for healthy relationship. The more relationally healthy people are, the less anxious, addicted, and depressed they are. Have you noticed that anxious, depressed, and addicted people isolate? Because they are pulling away from relationships, it hurts too much, its easier. And they get more mentally unwell, because our mental health problems are rooted in the breakdown of our relationships or the lack of relational intelligence.
– John Kane

John Mark Kane, LMFT #134414

Therapy is in my blood; its the way I can help and love people. Since I was young, I witnessed human suffering all around me. These experiences have shaped my life, challenging me to explore the human experience and how to help people live healthy, fulfilled, and godly lives. I have a diversity of interests in counseling, psychology, philosophy, wilderness therapy, theology, and experiential living that contribute to my unique approach to coaching. One cool fact about me is that prior to becoming a relationships oriented Therapist, I was a wilderness adventures facilitator.

 

Relationships are one of the most important aspects of my life. I treasure my relationship with God, with my wife, and my kids. I’ve come to realize that challenges in relationships are at the center of most of our problems, whether it be anxiety, depression, family conflicts, marriage conflicts etc. I am passionate about helping people to have the relationships that they long for because I believe that we are relational beings that can be made whole when we have healthy connection to others.

 

I believe that therapy is a safe place for people to be whoever they are right now, no matter how bad they feel about themselves or their lives. It is in this place of vulnerability that we can admit our struggles, face our true selves, and then grow to become all that we are meant to be! I believe in the inherent value of human life. No matter what your struggle, background, belief system, or things you have done, you are inherently valuable, and with me you will find a safe place to work on yourself or your family.

 

 

Experience

 

I have a Master’s degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from Western Seminary. I am available to provide individual, couples, family, child and adolescent therapy, and parent coaching. Prior to obtaining my Master’s degree, I had been working in the Mental Health field as a Coach for over 10 years. I also have the unique experience of obtaining an undergraduate degree in Recreation and specializing in Wilderness Therapy and Adventure Programming. I lived outside in the woods for two years, working with emotionally disturbed boys.

 

I experience working with individuals, couples, children, and families. I am passionate about empowering healthy relationships between friends, lovers, and families. I take a practical and integrated approach to therapy, using skill building interventions and techniques from science, psychology, and the Christian faith. I believe in addressing the needs of the whole person and that requires blending different viewpoints and creating a unique approach to therapy for each individual, couple, family, or parent.

 

I spent my formative years living in countries in Southeast Asia, which gave me the first hand experience of living in different cultures, and going through transitions and adjustments between cultures and nations. I have a personal understanding of the needs of expatriates, missionaries, and third culture kids (TCKs).

 

Growth and Change Counseling is a group practice. People come to us because they hear that people experience real change and growth when they come to our practice. All of our practitioners implement what we call the foundational approach to relational and emotional well being. All of our practitioners are trained in the same foundational approach so that regardless of which therapist you end up working with, you can be confident that you are getting the same standard of care for which we have become known.

 

I specialize in working with Individuals, Couples, Parents, families, Teenagers, Cross Cultural Workers, TCK’s, and Christians but I can work with you without any difficulty if you come from a different faith or belief system. Many of the skills I use in coaching have universal application and you too can experience improvements and significant growth in your relationships and life!

 

We help individual’s, couples, parents,and people in cross cultural settings work through their challenges so they can experience personal renewal and healing in their relationships (with God, family, friends, children, and other people).

 

We understand the unique stressors and hardships that people deal with in their relationships with family, friends, coworkers, and cross cultural settings!
Your well-being is my ultimate concern. Whether you’re an individual, a couple or a family looking for help – our therapy and coaching sessions are designed to provide a safe, non-judgmental, and understanding environment for you to deal with whatever is on your mind and heart. Contact us to today for a free consultation.

Aidee Lookabaugh, LMFT #141667

Sometimes it is easier to smile and say “I am fine” when deep down, you are longing to say “no, I am not ok. I am tired, lonely, and hopeless. I long to be seen, to feel listened to, to be loved and accepted. I have tried it all, but nothing works.” Break free from any barriers that hold you back and come as you are. Starting therapy can be a daunting experience. My goal is to make your experience a safe place in which you can explore, process, and dive deeper in those areas of need; help you identify your strengths, and provide you with the foundational tools you need to thrive and grow in your life. 

Whether you experience anxiety, depression, or conflict in your marital or parent-child relationships; I can help you! I’m here to help in your journey of healing and restoration! Therapy can be that safe place you’ve been looking for in which you can openly unload your heart and experience non-judgmental support and genuine connection. Together we can explore where you currently are, what you would like your future to look like, and how we can work together to help you get there.  

I know it is important for you to find a therapist you can connect and work well with. I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in the state of California. I am a first-generation Latina of Mexican background and bilingual in Spanish. My educational background includes a Bachelor’s in Psychology from San Diego State University and a Master’s in Marriage and Family Therapy from Western Seminary. My professional development includes 1 year of experience working in Mexico as a psychologist, supporting teens and their families. I also have 9 years of experience working in community mental health with children, teens, young adults, and families.

Have you thought “I don’t fit in” or “nobody cares what I think or listens to me!”or “Why do I stress out all the time?” I’ve been there too. Its a struggle in the very core of your belief system and with help you can heal. It doesn’t matter who you are, where you come from, or what you believe, I can come alongside you and help you on your healing journey, not just because I know how to, but because I have also experienced the healing myself.

You matter in life because you are human and precious. I want to help you experience wholeness so that you can be satisfied in your life and confidant to face any challenge and grow through it.

Therapy is in my blood. Its something I have pursued with passion since I was a child. I take a very hands on and eclectic approach (i.e.,integrating from multiple theories and strategies to personalize to your needs). I provide you with relational homework and skills to integrate into your life between sessions, this is where you will take what is learned in session and flesh it out in daily life. In this process you will learn how to shape you destiny instead of being defined by your past.

I am a member of Growth and Change Counseling. I integrate the Growth and Change foundational approach into our therapy sessions, its what gives us our reputation for meaningful results quickly. It allows us to establish a standard of care so that you can know that regardless of which therapist you work with at Growth and Change Counseling, you are getting the same foundation that has given us our reputation for producing real change quickly and effectively!

People come to us for many reasons, but they stay because they like our methods and get results. We don’t believe in endless therapy. Our goal is to get you in and out as quickly as reasonably can be done and do it in a way that hopefully you will never need to come back!

My professional Experience:

I have an undergraduate degree in Psychology from San Diego State and a Masters degree in Marriage and Family Therapy at Chapman University. I am a specialist with years of experience working with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and I have specialized training in Applied Behavioral Analysis (ABA). I also specialize in working with Individuals around issues such as Anxiety, Depression and Anger Management. I work with couples and with parents dealing with child behavioral concerns. At Growth and Change Counseling, we treat everything and we want you to know that we have the knowledge and experience to support you.

April Silva, LMFT #142789

I am a relationships oriented therapist aggressively committed to helping you uncover the underlying causes of anxiety and depression and support you in building the skills to increase communication, connection, and find satisfaction in your relationships.

In this process I will help you to uncover and address the underlying anger that feeds the anxiety and depression. In cases of PTSD, I will help you uncover the underlying defenses that protected you through a traumatic experience but now are interfering with your ability to move forward in intimacy.

My approach

I am an experienced specialist in trauma care, including complex trauma and dissociation, and love helping clients heal. I treat the whole person utilizing aspects of many theories and strategies. Some of the theories and strategies I like to use include Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), attachment theory, somatic therapy, and EMDR.Through this process together, you will learn tools and principles of life that will empower you with increased relational intelligence that will give you confidence and cultivate a renewed sense of purpose and well-being. There is no mountain too high to be climbed, no obstacle too difficult to face. There is hope and whatever your situation,I would be honored to face it with you.

You can have it all: Get your parenting power back and have the relationship you always wanted with your child/children.

In our work with parents and children, we've found that supporting parents directly yields more lasting results than working with the children themselves. We recognize your significant influence in your child's life.

By empowering you to address your child's needs, we foster enduring positive outcomes and nurture a more intimate parent-child relationship. Parents often find it challenging to assist their children during difficult times. We offer our expertise, training, perspective, and experience to empower you, helping you regain parental authority and fostering a healthy, fulfilling relationship with your child.

Mr. Kane is very gentle and hears the heart of the problem. He guided our family through a difficult season with faith, hope, encouragement, and educational resources. I don't know how to show appreciation for saving our family other than saying, Thank you! I would highly recommend him.
