My name is Anna Kelleher and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) based in Oakland, California and working with clients statewide via telehealth. I am also a Certified Iyengar Yoga Teacher (ID 2133). I work with adults 50+ and specialize in grief, parenting, and life transitions, using mindfulness-based cognitive behavioral and strength-based therapies to help my clients live in alignment with their goals and values. I have found my style is a good fit for adults who are facing life transitions and loss. This often takes the form of questioning how to cope, exploring identity, and a desire for new meaning and purpose.

I have extensive experience and training in the areas of infertility, assisted reproduction and donor-conception, as well as perinatal loss (miscarriage, stillbirth, termination due to medical diagnosis).
I help people build strong, connected intimate relationships - with their partners, children, families or themselves. I particularly enjoy supporting families created through donor conception at all stages of their journey from pre-conception decision-making to supporting families with a donor conceived teen or young adult.

I have had the privilege to work with individuals with generational trauma, grief, ADHD, and relational/familial issues.
When we are exposed to trauma at an early age, it can seriously impact how we feel about ourselves and our relationships with others. Trauma can also profoundly affect whether we feel this is a safe world and can contribute to depression, anxiety, and relational/familial issues. My practice is from a strengths-based, trauma-informed perspective with a non-judgmental framework. I aim to understand clients’ internal responses and to provide more options for emotional regulation and problem-solving.

Life can feel overwhelming, isolating, or riddled with anxiety and depression. Perhaps things feel stuck and you are seeking a change and want more out of life. Early adulthood is a particularly challenging time. It can be difficult to challenge the perceptions of the world shaped by our families and upbringing, while maintaining the shared connections and values. It is a time to explore racial, sexual, and gender identities. A task made more complicated when layered with neurodiversity, trauma, grief, or a life circumstance that makes you feel different. Therapy can offer a sense of insight, stability, and self-acceptance.

I have worked extensively with women with cancer, and people going through divorce, retirement, death of a partner, and most of life's various provocations which cause pain to the soul, all "traumas" in their own right.
I consider it a privilege to work with you to explore aspects of your life experience which have diminished your satisfaction with life or otherwise left you feeling lost or alone. Challenges around loss, aging, illness, trauma or relationships can feel too frightening to tackle alone. As a seasoned and compassionate psychotherapist, I can help you bear and work with what may feel unbearable. Together, we will create a protected space that fosters the trust, aliveness and self-expression that are essential to growth and success in love and work, where you can ultimately reclaim your life and joie-de-vivre.
