"Are you looking to better understand yourself within your world, relationships and family? Maybe you are feeling constantly out-of-sorts due to family, work, life demands or past events, and ready to "figure things out," by taking a closer look at your life and background. Walking through life feeling uprooted, exhausted, lost and not your best self is difficult. Having a warm & affirming environment where you can freely express and explore your world can help you to build resiliency and empower yourself to make more fulfilling choices. "

"Are you too stressed to even be in touch with yourself? Too worried and tense, having a hard time to relax? Are you avoiding people and their expectations (and judgments) because you're tired and feel you don't have much to give at the moment? Stress feels like having a super sensitive burglar alarm ringing loudly throughout the mind and body. It confuses our thoughts. We are unable to see facts or future clearly. Our creativity is blocked or showing up as destructive energy. The body is in fight (frustration and anger) or flight (anxiety and overload) or worse - feeling frozen (numb and depressed). "

Family Systems Therapists
Family Systems therapists in Oakland view problems within the family as the result not of particular members' behaviors, but of the family's group dynamic. The family is seen as a complex system having its own language, roles, rules, beliefs, needs and patterns. The therapist helps each individual member understand how their childhood family operated, their role in that system, and how that experience has shaped their role in the current family. Therapists with the MFT credential are usually trained in Family Systems therapy.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in Oakland are able to work with a wide range of issues.

For example, if you're seeking a marriage counselor in Oakland you'll find that most therapists are trained in marriage counseling or couples counseling in Oakland and couples therapy. And they welcome families for family counseling in Oakland or family therapy in Oakland.
