Carl Sayles, PsyD & The Healing Place ~ is a psychotherapeutic counseling practice located in Fair Oaks, California near the intersection of Sunrise Boulevard and Fair Oaks Boulevard for over 20 years. 

My work as a therapist is focused on assisting people discover vitality, wholeness, and contentment in life. With compassion, understanding, and a touch of humor,  I can help guide you through the obstacles that keep you from experiencing the life you desire. Using theoretical ordinations that include person centered, humanistic, and existential process that is - guided by techniques using Neurobio-feedback, Brain Synchrony and Open Focus, Transformation Systemic Processing, Comprehensive Energy Psychology, guided imagery, and various other modalities.

I integrate elements of attachment, humanistic, existential, and transformational systemic theory, along with elements of psychodynamics. I also draw from buddhist psychology and the value of mindfulness. The integration of the psychotherapeutic process can be described as “tuning one's ear to listen to one's inner voice.” When we hear that voice, our world becomes still and more calm.

Fulfillment and Vitality ~  Deep fulfillment and maturing vitality are available to each of us. When this natural process is disrupted, suffering is experienced. Anxiety, depression, betrayal, traumatic events, addictions, and loss are all forms of suffering. 

When we remove the blockages that keep suffering anchored in place, a more natural way of being is experienced. Embracing our new found way we can enjoy the richness of relationship we each yearn for. 

Who am I ~  I am a psychotherapist and counseling psychologist, licensed as a Marriage and Family Therapist. I have been in private practice in Fair Oaks, California, since l992,  and I have experience working with adults in both an individual and/or couples setting, adolescents in an individual and/or family setting; as well, experience working with the GLBT community and with people across the spectrum of mental disorders.
