About

Confidence and connection are the key ingredients for a meaningful life, but they can be compromised in times of stress or transition. The foundations of the past, once familiar and secure, are shaken. Anxieties encroach. Connections are lost. Yet, I believe that despite the pain and difficulty of these phases, there is immense potential for positive change and personal growth. Helping you discover that potential is what I love most about my work, so I encourage you to reach out to me to get started today. You can email me at vanpeltcounseling@gmail.com or text me at 510-859-4448 to set up a free consultation. I will respond ASAP.
You may be coming to therapy already knowing what you want less of—be it self doubt and criticism, tension in a particular relationship, a creeping uneasiness, or any of a hundred other challenges that enter our lives and create a sense of overwhelm or fatigue. Therapy helps, and I am here to lend skillful support in finding relief.
However, our work will also focus on evoking and identifying what you want more of in your life—what nourishes you, what instills energy and fulfillment. Along the way, I will always meet you with curiosity, warmth, acceptance, and humor. I look forward to joining you for this phase of your journey and helping you find a brighter path forward.
