Welcome to Santa Cruz Family Therapy

I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT) who genuinely believes that therapy can be a transformational experience that produces powerful and long-term change in your life.

Carol Cochrane Bass

My offices are located in Santa Cruz and San Jose / Campbell. However, I also see clients via video session or over the phone. I encourage clients to choose what is most comfortable for them. Please contact me to schedule your first session.

Areas Of Expertise

Whether overwhelmed by a problem or feelings that cannot be fully understood, troubled by a relationship that is failing, or experiencing diminished ability to be effective in your everyday routine, I would consider myself honored to be trusted with your vulnerability and pain, and help you to achieve positive change in your life.
