Elizabeth Ehrenberg, LCSW, Clinical Social Work/Therapist in Oakland
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.
For the past seven years, I have specialized in successfully treating issues related to food, eating, and body image. My work is grounded in the belief that recovery is possible and that everyone has the innate ability to have a healthy relationship with food.
In my practice I weave together traditional psychodynamic talk therapy, behavioral therapy and somatic psychotherapy. I incorporate mindfulness, Buddhist philosophy, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT). I welcome clients of all races, genders, sizes, sexual orientations, and relationship styles.

Living Improv

Living Improv pairs improv techniques with a facilitated process group. The principles that help actors create scenes and stories are the same principles that help people create fulfilling connections with others and live their lives with grace and joy. The tools of improv can be applied to our daily lives to help us be more in the moment, let go of old patterns, and feel more connected and confident.
