Cindi Rivera, MFT, Marriage & Family Therapist in Oakland
I am a bilingual bicultural psychotherapist working primarily with adults, couples and adolescents who are having problems in their relationships and/or who feel badly about themselves or their life situation. The in-depth work I do focuses on one's feelings and significant relationships - past and present. With compassion and deep personal respect, I help my clients to deal with the painful issues, losses and complex struggles of living. I work well with anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, parenting issues, inter-racial couples, life transitions, loss, and trauma; toward repairing the relationships that are inevitably affected by these problems.
Are you concerned about the relationship you have with your teenager? Are you troubled by arguments you have with your spouse? Do you struggle with loneliness and emptiness? Unhappiness at work? Do you have difficulty communicating your wishes? Or have bad memories of your past? Do you wake up worried?...
I will work intimately with you on your deepest concerns, to facilitate healing, growth, freedom in the most important areas of your life. To receive a FREE E-COURSE using mindfulness, titled "More Calm, Less Worry in Your Busy Life" please check out the page on my website.
