I draw on evidence-based forms of psychotherapy which complement one another: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT: for trauma).
I am an experienced licensed psychologist in Alameda (near Oakland). I work with adults and seniors, and see both individuals and couples. I currently only meet with clients online. I can help with depression, anger, trauma, ptsd, dissociation, stuckness, abuse, bullying, grief, failure, loss, loneliness, shame, guilt, anxiety, impulse control problems, some addictions, relationship and marriage issues and other life and existential issues. I am compassionate and empathic, but also intelligent, practical and active. I will help you understand your issues and gently push you to grow, adapt and cope.

As as ACT/CBT Therapist & Art Therapist, I want to help you discover, what I already know.
Have you ever felt pulled in so many directions at once that a peaceful and complete life seems unachievable? Do you feel like you are constantly falling short? Do you beat yourself up inside at times with thoughts of, “I will never be good enough" and "I cannot change my circumstances.” Are you open to using the art process and/or therapy as a way to decompress and elevate your self worth? If so, I want to help. I recognize the courage you have taken in seeking out therapeutic support, as everyone experiences ups and downs at different times in life. My goal for you is to feel valued, heard, and accepted.

Along the way, I will always meet you with curiosity, warmth, acceptance, and humor.
Confidence and connection are the key ingredients for a meaningful life, but they can be compromised in times of stress or transition. The foundations of the past, once familiar and secure, are shaken. Anxieties encroach. Connections are lost. Yet, I believe that despite the pain and difficulty of these phases, there is immense potential for positive change and personal growth. Helping you discover that potential is what I love most about my work, so I encourage you to reach out to me to get started today. You can email me at vanpeltcounseling@gmail.com or text me at 510-859-4448 to set up a free consultation. I will respond ASAP.

I specialize in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), an evidence-based therapy that’s extremely well-suited to people struggling with anxiety.
“The best things in life are on the other side of fear.” You or your teen struggle with anxiety, OCD, or trauma. Your emotions are all over the place. You spend hours worrying and feeling anxious. Or you keep trying to get away from your past and leave it behind, but it keeps catching up to you. You’ve tried all kinds of ways to get rid of the problem - relaxation, meditation, etc. - and nothing has worked. You’re confused, frustrated, and nearly hopeless. You don’t understand why this is happening, how to make it go away, or even what to do next.

I can make a difference in your child's success in special education, IEPs, learning differences, navigating for parents who's children may need extra help in school, or having a negative effect on a young child who has lost their self esteem and has a failure mentality and turn it into a child believing and feeling like they can succeed and has pride with knowing they can achieve success. Academic help is every child's right through a federal law that is already in place. Many parents do not know how to access these programs. These techniques or resources are tailored specifically for your child.

You navigate this world each day doing the best you can, but life's biggest sources of pain, confusion, or stress can leave you lost and overwhelmed. You have to just "figure it out". Therapy provides a space to step back and examine yourself: intentionally, and with a plan and goal in mind. I believe that therapy should ultimately allow you to "become" your own therapist, bringing what you learn from our work back into your own world. I will challenge your long-held beliefs and habits in therapy and encourage your honest self-reflection, but always with elements of humor and compassion.

You might be feeling: alone because no one knows what you really go through, overwhelmed because you feel lonely or rejected often, worried about failing at work and in your relationships, consumed with what others think about you, worried about worrying so much, shut down because you are afraid to get close, not feeling good enough and even embarrassed for drinking, spending, eating so much to alleviate stress. What you desire is some peace and ease though. You want to thrive. Do you want to feel more confident in your life so you can live the way you want? If it is, my job is to help you get there as quickly as possible.

I completed my Masters of Social Work at Smith College School for Social Work. I received my post-masters training at Kaiser Permanente Oakland Adult Psychiatry, where I practiced individual adult and group psychotherapy for six years before transitioning into private practice. Working at Kaiser afforded me experience with a wide range of client concerns and gave me the opportunity to work with clients from a wide range of socioeconomic, cultural, and relationship backgrounds. Before pursuing my MSW, I practiced as a corporate transactional attorney at two Bay Area law firms after completing my JD at Harvard Law School.

It takes courage to start working with a new therapist. The very fact that you’re considering it probably means you’re getting ready to make some significant changes in your life. My approach to therapy focuses on understanding and accepting you as you are right now, and creating a safe space where you can figure out where you want to go from here. We’ll work together as you get ready to make the sometimes tough (and rewarding) changes that will give you a better life. We will also deal with any stresses you're experiencing due to the coronavirus, including the isolation of sheltering in place and uncertainties about the future.

ACT also addresses your commitment to making changes, and what to do about it when you can't stick to your goals.

If you're looking for ACT therapy in Alameda or for an Alameda ACT therapist these professionals provide acceptance and commitment therapy, ACT group therapy, ACT therapy, and acceptance commitment therapy. They include ACT therapists, ACT psychologists, ACT psychotherapists and ACT counselors.
