Adrienne Schultz, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist
LIC NO. 121299

San Jose

My professional development is grounded in psycho-dynamic and attachment-based approaches; I partner with clients to help them tap into their undiscovered strengths, draw out generational resiliency and develop their unique interests towards healthy individuation from societal and familial pressures. I help clients examine their belief systems to support re-imagining and creating beliefs and coping strategies better suited for the challenges they are experiencing. I approach the therapeutic relationship with authentic compassion and an unconditional lens to help clients find their voice, tell their story and define personal goals; I believe a client is a once whole person that has been fragmented into hurt parts. I see my role as one of partnership in bringing the client back to their truer being of wholeness and wellness. I rely on clinical and personal experience in my practice; utilizing humor and creativity to tailor my approach to each person and meet clients where they are at. My experience both personally and professionally has led to a keen understanding of persons impacted by societal challenges, intra-psychic schisms, and generational cycles of conflict and dysfunction. I am adept at helping clients navigate the medical, academic and legal systems that can impede wellness; at all times I utilize a holistic perspective to understand their lived experience and support them through systemic oppression, generational trauma and formative relationships.

I believe in the innate capabilities of my clients; through positive and negative life experiences we develop awareness and resiliency that can at times be challenging to tap into. During the process of therapy, I support clients in finding those strengths to cope with obstacles as well as re-create a life that better represents their true self. The therapeutic relationship is based in trust, collaboration and skill-building towards self-actualization and away from stagnant and negative cycles of dysfunction.
