I help you overcome your struggles in all your relationships and deepen your relationship with yourself. I guide people working with issues including relationship struggles, depression, trauma, anxiety, addiction, sexuality, loss and cultural disconnections. Using advanced modern therapy techniques, I can help support you with a wide array of problems. Couples and individuals have great success in finding more contentment in their lives by experiencing ways together to alleviate their suffering. Anger, sadness, fear and confusion will diminish and feelings of lightness, joy, peace of mind, stability and self-love will grow.

Therapy provides such a rich opportunity for growth and learning, helping persons to recover from the aftermaths of trauma, abuse and loss, meet the hardships of their lives and thrive. In times like this, with so much anxiety about our collective welfare, it can be an invaluable lifeline. In response to the Coronavirus, also known as COVID-19, we are now offering teletherapy (therapy by phone and online by video) for all our clients, whether new or established. Also called telehealth or telebehavioral health, teletherapy can provide vital care and support to individuals, couples and families.

I believe that all people have an innate healing capacity and through compassion, we can navigate to the other side of shame. I have worked extensively with issues of childhood and adult traumas and how these painful experiences have affected how we relate to ourselves and others. I specialize in working with PTSD, anxiety, depression, & grief, and psychedelic integration. I am especially passionate about working with people who are open and willing to do deep work & interested in somatic approaches. I also enjoy working with those who are interested in using therapy to explore topics like having a life of meaning and spirituality.

You may feel lost, but you are not alone. We all experience suffering as a part of the human condition, yet sometimes our symptoms of stress, despair, worry, or self-criticism stand in the way of living the life that we want. If you find yourself troubled by a particular life problem or psychological condition, or generally lacking a sense of vitality and purpose, working with a clinician can help you reconnect with yourself and your strengths. Therapy often helps us to make useful connections between our actions, our thinking, our emotional reality, and patterns in relationships that we have developed over years.

My style is warm, curious, and straightforward, with a well placed sense of humor. I’m a sensitive and attuned listener, skilled at navigating intense and complicated thoughts, feelings, and interactions. I especially enjoy working with clients who are seeking a collaborative and engaged experience. I will undoubtedly (and sincerely) smile, nod, and at times ask, “How did that make you feel?” I will also ask other kinds of questions, share my thoughts with you, reflect on patterns that may be emerging, and offer tangible tools.

Road to motherhood can be frustrating and challenging. Perhaps you are thinking about fertility treatments, IVF, IUI, or adoption. Maybe it has been a difficult road with miscarriages, unsuccessful egg retrievals or using a surrogate. It can be an overwhelming place to try to start a family, while encountering road bumps along the way. After the baby comes, we may experience exhaustion, sadness and even even a sense of isolation from our partner, friends and family. Growing a family takes a village.

My hope is to help you heal trauma, manage dissociation, build insight around how your mind works and compassionately transform unhelpful internalized messages. I specialize in working with adults, children and teens.

I am a psychotherapist with offices in SF and Oakland, treating both adults and couples. I take a relational and collaborative approach to psychotherapy. We are all unique, consciously and unconsciously influenced by the relationships and life-events that leave a lasting impact on how we address our current situation. Difficulties can sometimes arise when the habitual thoughts, emotions, or behaviors that once served us now have us feeling stuck, depressed, and powerless. Fear, ambivalence, compulsivity and patterned thinking can hamper our ability to address the inevitable twists and turns of daily life.

My clients come to me due to anxiety and trauma related concerns while facing stressors and life transitions. Life is difficult when you are experiencing mental health struggles due to physical health, family or marital situations, dating hardships, work conflict and/or past life experiences. It affects self confidence. You could be struggling while navigating the impact of immigration, cultural background, identity, inter-generational differences, interpersonal challenges, and career demands on your worldview and yourself. As an Asian therapist, I not only have familiarity but also cultural competency in helping APIDA individuals.

You can be free from the patterns and struggles that keep you from living fully, authentically, and joyfully. You may be feeling stuck or overwhelmed by recent challenges or past traumas. Wherever you are in your journey, I can provide you with the support and tools to stay present while addressing ongoing issues such as anxiety, depression, limiting self-beliefs, harmful behaviors, or painful cycles in relationships. As we attend to these issues with compassion, you will begin to heal the disconnection from self, relationship wounds, family dynamics, and trauma that may be at the root of these struggles.

Are you an intuitive empath? Bored with talk therapy? Ready to try something new, like meditation or shamanic journeying, to manage overwhelm, anxiety, and relational conflicts? Consider my peer-reviewed approach: "Every week, a psychotherapist visits with our postdoctoral training group and shares their trade secrets. The postdocs were blown away by Dr. Loraine Van Tuyl’s presentation because she offered them such a new and refreshing perspective. They were particularly impressed by her integration of spiritual practices and wisdom into her therapeutic work." - Sasha Blum, PhD, UC Berkeley Counseling & Psychological Services.

Are you not feeling like your usual self? Are stress, work, family pressure, relocation and/or COVID overwhelming you? Is there just way too much going on? Sometimes our brain won't turn off and stop worrying, sometimes it is difficult to get out of bed or get a good night's rest, other times it is tough to buckle down and focus. If you'd like to feel more calm, more relaxed, less upset, and more happy - let's chat. Therapy can help - even if you're not sure how. I see mental health as part of one's overall wellness. My approach focuses not just on having fewer negative emotions, but also on experiencing more positive emotions.

Working in non profits and government services for 20 plus years both in San Francisco and Alameda County, has taught me the art of appreciating people for who they are, keeping an open mind and helping them see their own strength within. I am very excited to be in private practice. Working with couples , parents, and individuals. I am very curious and passionate about non traditional coupling, open relationships, polyamory, issues of infidelity and the sexual needs of couples and individuals. I believe that we can heal intuitively and I look forward to meeting people willing to share that journey with me.

Would you like to know yourself better and more deeply? To be able to move beyond painful and frustrating patterns in your feelings, relationships, and work? Sometimes it's clear why we feel and act how we do: ecstatic about a new romance, upset about a professional disappointment, awash with grief following the loss of a loved one. Other times feelings and behaviors may surprise you—a nagging anxiety, a lingering sadness, memories of past experiences that you thought you'd left behind, a sense that your relationship with a partner could be deeper, that work could be more fulfilling even as you have success along the way.
