Announcement icon We offer telehealth sessions throughout California, including coping with the COVID-19 pandemic and finding growth during these challenges
It takes courage to start working with a new therapist. The very fact that you’re considering it probably means you’re getting ready to make some significant changes in your life. My approach to therapy focuses on understanding and accepting you as you are right now, and creating a safe space where you can figure out where you want to go from here. We’ll work together as you get ready to make the sometimes tough (and rewarding) changes that will give you a better life. We will also deal with any stresses you're experiencing due to the coronavirus, including the isolation of sheltering in place and uncertainties about the future.
We’ll meet weekly, and to practice social distancing, we’ll have sessions by phone. Working outside the traditional therapy office, you’ll find a comfortable place to be during your sessions. Many clients choose to have sessions outdoors when weather permits, letting us use elements of ecotherapy and mindfulness to feel more connected to the natural world.
Our motto at Green Psychotherapy is "Your Life. Your Future." After sheltering in place ends, our offices in Berkeley, Walnut Creek, San Francisco, and Oakland will reopen <www.greenpsychotherapy.com/locations>. Call for a free, initial phone consultation to see whether we're a good match. I look forward to talking with you soon.
