I am seeking clients who are open to discovering what makes them unique through a creative and imaginative process; Clients whose goals may range from deeper self knowledge, to decreasing experiences with anxiety and depression , to understanding how trauma plays itself out in their relationships, to being able to resource themselves, etc; Clients interested in exploring their strengths as well as their more scary parts. I believe that pain and suffering are normal emotions and healing happens in connection with others; others who can hold and stay with the difficulty and provide curiosity and support.

Do you feel disconnected from yourself or others? I can help you understand and move through experiences of depression , anxiety, relationship difficulty, and parenting difficulty.
I believe my job is to create a sense of safety in which we can think about the things you might have trouble thinking about. There may be parts of your history that are difficult and frightening to contemplate on your own. Together, we can help you begin to understand yourself, trust yourself, soften toward yourself, validate what is true for you, and eventually accept all the parts of you. I’ll want to understand your current difficulties in the context of your personal and family history, and will listen with curiosity and warmth to understand the way in which your history may be affecting your current situation.

ASSERTIVENESS COACHING: GET WHAT YOU WANT AND IMPROVE RELATIONSHIPS Most of us don't like conflict. Some of us worry that by expressing our true feelings, we will be seen as selfish or confrontational. Fearing rejection, we push our needs aside, but are disappointed when we don't get what we want. This cycle can lead to withdrawal, resentment, anger, and depression . Being assertive is often confused with self-centeredness and aggression. Learning the difference can pave the way to greater self expression and life satisfaction.

Often we have so many judgments and intense feelings about food and our bodies that it can be difficult to see clearly. I offer support, guidance, and clarity. In addition to being a therapist I have 20 years of experience as an eating disorder dietitian. I work with individuals on a range of issues including struggles with food and body image, unlearning diet culture, embracing health at every size, and healing from eating disorders, anxiety and depression . My goal is to foster an atmosphere of comfort and safety, so we can explore your inner landscape with kindness and curiosity, so you can live with more ease, choice and joy.

If you are an individual or couple who experiences frustration and unhappiness in relationships rather than the sense of ease and flow that you long for, I urge you to dare to hope it can be different and call me. The process I use does not usually take years, like you've been led to believe by popular media! It works well with many types of "personality symptoms," from relationship issues to depression , anxiety, fears and other specific ways in which you've been frozen out of the life you want to lead.

I specialize in individual and couples work with depression , anxiety, various relationship problems, low self-esteem, parenting difficulties, eating and addiction disorders.
I invite you to visit my website drehrhart.com for a more complete sense of how I can help you, or you and your partner, who I am, and how I work. In short though, if we work together we would explore the dynamic terrain of your relationships - your relationships to your emotions, your thoughts, your behavior, to your idea of self, and to others. This is done in a relationship of genuine curiosity and compassion, so that change, in place of judgement, is fostered. Eventually, this productive and curious environment or relationship that we foster together, can be internalized and taken with you as a tool for your life journey.

Welcome. I do this work because I care deeply about healing through connection and compassionate relationships. I love working with people so they can learn about themselves, challenge old stories that may no longer serve, and ultimately live more authentic lives. Each of us is strong, powerful and beautiful, with unique gifts to offer this world. Yet sorrow is real, and having a safe and compassionate space to address grief, transition, relationship issues, trauma, anxiety, depression , addiction, and questions about gender and sexuality is fundamental and healing.

Are you wanting to feel better once and for all? Maybe you can't move on from the past or you're worried about your future. If anxiety, panic, or even depression is stealing your joy, I get it. If traditional talk therapy hasn't helped you feel better, it's time to try a new approach to heal at the source of your pain. For 12 years I have refined my approach through professional training and experience in Relational-gestalt therapy and Brainspotting (derived from EMDR) while centering social justice and trauma-informed care.

Whatever brings you in, I'll offer a warm-hearted and positive space for us to learn together about your particular situation, and about the possibilities for healing and transformation that can be found within it. Having someone to talk to makes a real difference.

CURRENTLY NOT ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS Individual, Couples/Relationship, Teen Counseling. LGBTQIA+, Poly, Sex-Positive, & Kink friendly. Folks tend to come to me when they are feeling stuck around their anxiety or depression . They usually are holding questions around their sexuality/identity, life transitions, and processing grief or loss. They know that they have the wisdom to resolve these feelings inside, but they are feeling stuck on how to access them. Everything feels a little garbled, and I help them clear the way to access the answers to the questions they are holding.

In times of difficulty, we can be harshly self-critical, which can lead to depression or self-loathing, and can make it harder to achieve our goals.
Do you struggle with anxiety, or low self-esteem? Are you tired of feeling like there's something wrong with you or that you're not good enough? Through a mindfulness-based, somatic, and trauma-sensitive approach, I support you in exploring your experience with curiosity and compassion, so that you can let go of limiting beliefs about yourself, feel at home in your own skin, and be free to live the life you want. After working with me, my clients report feeling more grounded and confident, and are better able to navigate relationships, life transitions, and daily stressors.

Depression Therapists
Depressive disorders are characterized by persistent feelings of sadness and worthlessness and a lack of desire to engage in formerly pleasurable activities. Depression is not a passing blue mood, which almost everyone experiences from time to time, but a complex mind/body illness that interferes with everyday functioning. It not only darkens one's outlook, it is commonly marked by sleep problems and changes in energy levels and appetite. It alters the structure and function of nerve cells so that it disrupts the way the brain processes information and interprets experience.

Despite feelings of hopelessness and worthlessness, depression is a treatable condition. It can be treated with psychotherapy by depression therapists in Grand Lake, Oakland. As with many illnesses, the earlier treatment begins, the more effective it can be and the greater the likelihood that recurrence can be prevented.

Psychotherapy addresses the thinking patterns that precipitate depression, and studies show that it prevents recurrence. Drug therapy is often helpful in relieving symptoms, such as severe anxiety, so that people can engage in meaningful psychotherapy.
