ME

Timothy Rogers, MA, LMFT

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist mfc101500

Welcome & Thank you for finding your way to my website. I'm Tim and I am a California State Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist (LMFT). I hold a Master's Degree in Counseling Psychology, and am in pursuit of my PhD in Clinical Psychology with an emphasis in Depth Psychology.


I have extensive experience in successfully treating the development of ineffective personality structures (who we have understood ourselves to be due to trauma) by addressing the inaccurate self-loathing beliefs which misinforms that personality structure throughout our entire lives.


MY  SELF

My work initially addresses presenting symptoms of trauma (such as infidelity, substance abuse, challenged relationships, and an inability to consistently manage emotional reactions). Then I target the self-sabotaging behaviors & unconscious motivations most of us have ignored, suppressed or denied. Finally, utilizing the established relationship with my clients, I help those who display instability in self-image and heightened or "displaced" emotional reactions and difficulty in impulse control.

New Mindset, Who Dis?


Remembering who you ar​e, whom you've thought yourself to be better than and whom you wish you could consistently be in your relatiobships does take work. But just because it's work, doesn’t mean it has to feel labor intensive. 

---

Pain travels through families until someone is ready to feel it.


Consider that childhood is defined by having very little if ANY circumstances in which we were in your control, had any say or power. The difference between a child and an adult isn't the age or even the so called lack of maturity or the impressive miles on your soul. It's having choice. Period. And because to be a child is to have no real choice in anything , you may have "forgotten" or never considered that to have choices, to feel empowered, to really be mature comes from being taught, modeled, informed, and most of all considered ... enough. Enough because you exist. Period.

 & WHY

While I enjoy working with a myriad of different populations, it is in the clinical support for men (all ages) who have long histories of rage (internal & external), substance abuse and/or social anxieties who find themselves seeking my counsel most consistently. The focus on the deeper work within our Selves and my liberal ability to be flexible with the schedules of high profile artists, their children & executives working in the television and film industry have established me as someone who is a trustworthy and effective psychotherapist.



The best indicator of a child's well being, is a parent's Self-understanding.


What you may not have emotionally understood is that your power comes from your you. Your Self.  Why? because your caretakers (as was theirs and theirs before them) were unaware of the one thing which everyone in childhood needs and almost never receives. - Experiencing their parents as confident, imperfect but willing to see themselves as worthy. 


Without knowing that this is the fundamental ingredient in the formation of someone's Self : Their Worth, each generation continues to pass on, perpetuates, encourages the loss of so much opportunity to thrive in a Self-satisfying life.



Your Last Therapist


But if you, your partner and/or members of your family choose to team up with me in being courageous rather than critical of your emotional responses and can pause before your physical reactions; then you can each learn how to be attracted to what’s healthy, and I can be the last Therapist you see.​
