If you're in a difficult place in your life and unsure how to move forward, therapy can be a great way to propel you toward your goals. Whether you're struggling with the impacts of trauma, depression, anxiety, marginalization and internalized oppression, or low self-esteem, we can work together to find the healing, fulfillment, and joy you desire and deserve. We can explore, deconstruct, and uncover patterns, behaviors, and thoughts that are no longer serving you, so you can enhance your sense of agency and empowerment.

Working at Stanford University and the University of California, Berkeley, helped me to develop these three recommendations for finding a therapist: 1) Find the "best fit" by meeting with (or calling) two or three therapists. Research suggests that the relationship you develop with your therapist determines therapy outcomes/benefits. Trust your judgement; pick a therapist that you like. 2) When contacting therapists, ask what experience they have working with your particular concerns. 3) Consider your preferred therapist demographics, such as age, ethnic-racial identity, and gender.

Sometimes the belief that you will find the right therapist and get through difficulties feels so far away. Depression and anxiety can complicate your efforts to reach out and begin the process of telling your story. I am here to listen to your story and collaborate with you to get past hardships and make realistic and sustainable changes. I have an interactive style which helps to draw out the difficult parts and ground you in your pursuit of a more fulfilling life.

I provide counseling that helps you to transform your current life. Free yourself from the clutches of anxiety, fear, worry, depression, avoidance, or procrastination. See yourself enjoying things, loving and taking care of yourself. Reclaim those plans you had for your life and transform overwhelm into action. Achieve a life free of the pain and destruction caused by alcohol, drugs, or emotional eating. Heal and recover from recent or distant past horrific/traumatic events. You are not your trauma. Learn to commit to your own emotional well-being and live the life you know deep down inside you are meant to live.

Are you or a loved one struggling with substance use or other risky behaviors? Have you sought treatment in the past through abstinence-only programs that didn’t work for you? I offer harm reduction therapy to individuals, couples, and families whose lives have been impacted by substance use and/or risky behaviors. Too often, people with this lived experience are offered a “one size fits all” solution to a complex issue that varies for each person. I strive to create a collaborative space where your individual experience, needs, goals, well-being, and autonomy are centered and valued in the therapeutic process.

It may seem like we are alone in our journey. We are all waging a personal invisible fight that we share with few people. Individual therapy is a way to help you make sense of your experience, and gain emotional support to push through difficult times. Beginning therapy is an opportunity to start offering yourself more compassion and grace. I’ve spent eight years supporting adults and families in crisis. I work with adults and adolescents struggling with transitions, grief, anxiety, depression, panic, phobias and addiction.

I’m excited about us getting to feel more whole. We’re not helping ourselves, or the earth, or the people we’re in community with if we’re shutting down and killing parts of ourselves. We learn quite early to value some and shut down other parts of ourselves, and the oppressive, dominating, greed-driven forces of our world traumatize us so that we can no longer access vital parts of ourselves. And its messed up that it’s even our job to take care of ourselves in the first place - that we have to heal from things that aren't even our fault. But we do, or at least, we can. I enter as a compassionate guide to walk that path with you.

I'm available to work with folks of all walks and identities, clear or uncertain, individually and through connections with others. Life transitions that can create doubt, confusion, and self-reproach can also be opportunities for discovery, restructuring, and rebirth. Some that I've explored deeply include new parenthood, non-monogamous intimacy, alienation from family of origin, psychedelic exploration, and activist social/political engagement. Whether these are your identified areas of work or not, a spirit of exploration, patience, and curiosity will animate my interest in who you are and how you experience life.

Tired of feeling down, anxious, or simply not your best? Ready to do more than just talk about it? If so, body oriented therapy may be for you. With body oriented therapy, we will explore not only your thoughts and emotions, but also the physical sensations, postures, and gestures that come with them. This is important because tuning into your body can help you understand your feelings, thoughts, and life experiences more deeply. This understanding can support you in being the person you want to be and creating the life you want to have.

I'm a psychotherapist, relationship specialist, wife and mom. Many of us can recognize patterns of our behavior that used to be helpful but now get in the way in the relationships we want. In many ways navigating difficult circumstances allowed us to survive or even thrive, but the ways we cope now don’t benefit us in the long run. These interactions can surprise us at times because while our lives can feel full and abundant, we also can feel sadness, resentment, and worry.

Racism, harassment, brutality, microaggressions affect our levels of self-esteem, anxiety and depression. You're feeling shame and embarrassment. You are reeling from the shock, anger and pain and find it difficult to talk to others. You are experiencing trauma, and reliving it in your mind and alone. Telling those who may not understand, often makes it worse. I help and support those who've been affected by inequality of all forms, especially stemming from racism. I provide a safe space where you're heard and validated. Receiving support helped me heal from these experiences, and is crucial. Virtual therapy for CA residents

I work with individuals and couples in any stage of relationship. If we work together, my goal is to help you access and understand the root causes of your struggles so you can truly heal. In my experience, when the origin of conditioned thoughts, feelings and behaviors are fully felt and understood, they no longer have power, can be let go, and in their place comes a sense of freedom, choice and empowerment. Whether you struggle to manage stress, anxiety, and/or depression, or have found the goal of creating a satisfying relationship or career to be elusive, I believe you can move past any limitations with the right help.

Have you tried working with a talk therapist to create positive changes in your life and nothing seems to be changing? You have been working through issues using your mind, but your emotions are running your life. You are still struggling to create the healthy relationship you desire, because your strong emotional reactions lead you to working against what you really want for yourself. When we only try to heal our emotional issues in our mind, we are missing a large part of where trauma and emotions are stored-- in our body and spirit.

My style of therapy is warm, attentive, & engaged. I believe we all need to be heard, understood & truly seen for who we are; for this is where a sense of self-trust can deepen & self-esteem can strengthen. One of my goals is to help you feel less burdened & less alone in your struggles and also provide coping strategies when you are feeling overwhelmed. I honor the uniqueness of each individual & work in a way that meets your current needs (whether you are moving through a crisis situation, having relationship issues, needing help managing anxiety & depression, or healing from trauma).

Teletherapy
Teletherapy and Online counseling have grown enormously as a medium for therapy since the advent of social distancing. Most therapists are happy to provide sessions by video or phone.

All professionals are licensed to provide video therapy to clients within the State in which they hold their license. Cross State licensing exists, but is rare.

So if you're a client in Oakland, this list of teletherapists are licensed to provide therapy to you online (by phone, video or text based chat) because they are within your state. They are sorted nearest to furthest, with professionals in Oakland listed first.

Teletherapy via phone or video can be very similar to conventional in person sessions. The message is the same, even if the medium is different. There are some advantages in the form of convenience, lack of travel and being in comfort of your own home. Set against those, professionals find it more difficult to read non-verbal signals of their clients, and you may find you yourself can be more easily distracted.
