I have expertise in working with clients who have the following issues: LGBTQ issues, anxiety/stress/depression, bipolar disorder, intimacy and communication in relationships.
Whether you're looking for short-term or long-term psychotherapy, I provide a safe and caring place for you. Our sessions are focused on what is important to you, as well as what is important for you. I give special consideration to your cultural background, and work with you in a way that is respectful and effective. I don't just listen without commenting, but interact with you and help you express thoughts and feelings if that is what you need. Therapy can be painful and frustrating, but it is almost always beneficial.

Bipolar Disorder Therapists
Therapy helps treat bipolar disorder through many different pathways. Therapy offers psychoeducation to improve medication compliance, skills to cope with the challenges of living with the condition, lifestyle remedies, connection to loved ones for greater support, and immediate help for crises that might trigger a manic or depressive episode. Patients come to treatment with different goals, so a therapist should encourage patients to share those goals and work collaboratively to find the right approach.

If you're looking for an Oakland bipolar disorder therapist, these professionals provide bipolar disorder therapy and counseling in Oakland.
