    Experienced, warm hearted American practitioner provides affordable counseling.

    Being deeply present with a client is truly a privilege. This requires learning one’s life story in order to identify what has gone amiss….and how to best overcome, manage, modify, transform. Dismantling  self sabotaging belief systems while raising self worth allows us to make decisions congruent with higher self expectations.

    Over the past 25 years, I have had the pleasure of facilitating this process. I work primarily with individuals,  but also have a particular passion running small groups

    * Women’s Self Esteem Catalyst for Change group~template as follows

    Ms. von Bogenberg was a student of mine at Cal Poly. I remember her well as she was a careful and thoughtful discussant in classroom exchanges as well as an outstanding student in criteria that measured analytical and critical skills.  She had a real sensitivity to and compassion for the human ingredient in academic analysis.

    I would enthusiastically recommend Ms. von Bogenberg to you. Beyond this, she is an approachable, warm woman who by temperament conveys to others her supportive, caring attitudes.

     

    Sincerely,

    Lillian H. Jones Acting Chair Ethnic and Women's Studies Department, California State Polytechnic University

    Personal Notes from past clients

     

    I am so glad I found you because I feel I can see clearly now, definitely stronger. resilient. On a new path. Your validation and unwavering faith in me has had an enormous effect. Thank you JT

     

    I wanted to tell you that you are the only therapist I’ve ever really felt entirely safe and comfortable with. Thank you for being there for me during the rough spots. It is good to know you are only a phone call away, should life get stormy. NW

     

    "Kay first helped lower my anxiety levels to the point of ridding me completely of a certain recurring nightmare. Then she restored my trust in reality by undoing a particularly strong form of parental gas-lighting involving my coming-out. And finally, she restored my faith in humanity by discovering her devoted animal welfare advocacy. In all the time that I've known her, never once did I feel judged for being different. She got me to a place where I have the certitude I am living life to the fullest of my own loving heart's potential." JB
