Jan A. Vitek, PhD, Psychologist in Oakland
*****Please see my website at: www.janvitekphd.com/.***** A genuine, empathic, and caring relationship is at the heart of meaningful and helpful psychotherapy. I focus on creating a safe, warm, and reflective environment in which to explore thoughts and feelings and identify patterns of behavior. I seek an optimum balance between safety and nurturance and challenge and directness. Good psychotherapy is about making better choices about how to take care of yourself, how to form satisfying relationships, and how to attain your personal goals.
We will work collaboratively to identify emotional issues, strengths, and goals. I practice a relationship-based approach to psychotherapy in which we will pay special attention to how you relate to yourself and others. I draw on those psychodynamic, cognitive, and behavioral techniques and interventions that best meet your needs.
Psychotherapy is not just about gaining understanding, it is about having a different kind of experience of yourself and relationships.
