Counseling in the Silicon Valley - Your Step to Wellness
Welcome! Counseling is a method to help you explore and reach new personal goals. We will work collaboratively as you begin to look at the areas of your life that bring you difficulty.

In her Silicon Valley private practice, Beth uses a relational framework that integrates cognitive-behavioral, family systems and interpersonal-dynamic theories.

Sometimes you can help yourself or can get help from friends and family. It is common for people to feel that they should be able to handle situations on their own but at other times it is more helpful to have an objective listener. Counseling can help you identify options, future goals and feelings to help enhance your emotional well-being.

Counseling is considered an exchange of opinions and ideas to effectively problem solve daily living issues associated with emotional, cognitive, or behavioral problems. Therapy is not a teaching session but a relationship where you can learn about your life, your feelings and your choices. Sometimes this kind of learning is difficult, which is one reason therapy usually takes more than a few sessions. Therapy can often bring about a greater sense of empowerment to create powerful, lasting change.
Beth Sorensen Agnew has been working with children, teens, couples and families in many different capacities since 2002. She built the foundation of her training at the Bill Wilson Center, in Santa Clara. At the Bill Wilson Center, Beth ran groups for at-risk teens while also working with adult clients and families in the outpatient clinic. Part of Beth's multi-faceted training also came from working as a Professional Foster Care Social Worker with FamiliesFirstInc., providing family and youth support within the context of foster care and social services.

Beth was the Director of the Helping Hands program at Family Violence Counseling Associates. This experience included individual therapy for child witnesses of family violence and counseling for women affected by domestic violence. Beth was also part of the dynamic team at Our Common Ground, Inc. (OCG), an adolescent treatment facility for youth with dual-diagnosis. Beth interviewed and assessed the youth to determine admission to the facility.
