Daybreak Counseling Center Mission Statement:

Daybreak is a metaphor for change. It is the time when light of day first shines through the darkness of night. At Daybreak Counseling Center we believe that the power of human potential can be utilized for healing, growth, and societal transformation. Through our exceptional psychotherapy and counseling services our mission is to provide unique excellence in two things: Mental Health Treatment and Personal Development. We provide a holistic and client centered approach that is tailor made to fit each client’s history, needs, and concerns. We aim to provide the highest quality service possible to teens, adults, couples, and families throughout all of California.

Our Approach to Therapy:

We are interested in therapists joining our team who value and are interested in non-manualized, non-expert, and non-symptom reduction only models. A better and more clear way to say this is that we are interested in therapists whose main modality is basically anything but C.B.T. or something similar to it. We don't have anything against C.B.T., we just believe that therapy is more of an art than a science and therefore value non-expert, non-manualized, and non-homework assigning forms of therapy for the client experience we provide. We believe when you give clients weekly homework from an instruction manual based form of therapy in the form of worksheets or otherwise that this creates an expert/client relationship that is reminiscent of the teacher/student or one up/one down relationship where the therapist is going to 'do' or 'give' something to the client the same way a doctor or teacher would. We understand that doing so may be helpful in the short term to some people but it is not the experience we want to provide for our clients. We believe therapy should not have a fixed number of sessions from the outset and we take as much time need to learn about our clients and understand them so they heal, grow, and learn valuable insight about themselves that they can apply over the long term to truly solidify their growth and resilience. We value person-centered, humanistic, mindfulness, post-modern, and psychodynamic forms of therapy where the focus is on providing a safe space for the client to share their deepest thoughts, painful feelings, and life stories to unearth the answers to their healing and growth that lie within them. We believe that therapy is more of an art than a science and we look for therapists to join our team who share that belief. We are also looking for someone who already has education, training, or a background in psychodynamic therapy, psychoanalysis, Jungian psychotherapy, existential/humanistic therapy, person-centered therapy, narrative therapy, IFS, Gestalt therapy, EFT, Gottman, Mindfulness, DBT, or Attachment Theory.
