Maren Gleason, LCSW, LCSW, Clinical Social Work/Therapist in San Ramon
You can have the relationship you have always wanted. You may find you've been having the same argument over and over. I help individuals, couples and families move from the frustration of feeling stuck to a sense of trust, security, safety and love. Or perhaps you are on the brink of divorce. I provide Discernment Counseling to help you develop the certainty and confidence in making the best choice for you and your family's future. I also help people who have experienced trauma and abuse. You can begin living the life you want for yourself and your family.
I am Certified in Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT). Over 90% of couples report their relationship was "significantly improved" with EFT. Additionally, for couples contemplating divorce, Discernment Counseling can help you both decide whether to give it one more try with clarity and confidence. There is hope for understanding and clarity.
With clinical experience in working with families and individuals from a wide variety of ethnic backgrounds, I'm skilled in using a variety of modalities to address relationship struggles, depression, anxiety, loss, couples on the brink of divorce, abuse histories, and trauma. Some evening and Saturday appointments are available.
