What if we begin with the assumption that you were born to be happy, loved, prosperous and at peace? Sounds good... but then why do I hurt? Why do I struggle? Why are the inevitable changes so hard to accept? Therapy can often serve to identify the barriers to happiness and emotional well-being. Simply identifying beliefs and practices at the center of any emotional turmoil can empower you to begin living a life that you deserve. I work with individuals and couples to get to the core of their issues so that they can start leading happier lives today!

Are you struggling with sexuality-related issues? Access to sexual health is a right. This includes expression of sexuality that is safe, free of judgment and shame, and centers pleasure. As queer folx, or queer folx of color, we've been told that our sexuality is wrong in so many ways. While the experience of marginalization is traumatic, we also have so much beautiful resiliency and abundant inner resourcefulness to counter that. I believe that we all deserve the right to heal, and that we all have the tools within ourselves to do so. My job is to partner with you & support gaining access to that intuitive healer within.

Family / Marital Therapists
Therapists in Oakland using the techniques of 'family therapy' work with families or couples both together and individually to help them improve their communication skills, build on the positive aspects of their relationships, and repair harmful or negative dynamics.

As an approach to therapy, 'family therapy' (also referred to as family systems therapy, marital therapy, marriage therapy, marriage and family therapy, marital therapy and family counseling) views change in terms of the systems of interaction between family members or couples.

Family relationships often affect psychological well-being and, regardless of the origin of an issue, or whether it may be the "individual" or "family" who is presenting it, involving the family in the solution can be of great benefit. Families participate directly in sessions during which the family therapist helps conversations in a way that draws upon and builds the strengths, wisdom and support of the wider family unit.
