There are no mistakes in this vast mystery of life. Each ant, every shrub, the noble redwoods and the moon in all her faces— everything is guiding us towards blooming. There are the wounds of living, and there is the innate alchemy of transmuting pain into medicine for ourselves, for our families, and for the world. Together, let’s befriend the wilderness inside you— the lover you are born with, as Mestiza Latina elder Clarissa Pinkola Estes says. The daily waves that wash ashore with work and home, with family, friends, partners, as we seek the connection that is our mammalian nature.

Finding the right therapist is hard. It is also worth the extra time and effort. Do you feel stuck, depleted or uncertain about your next step in life? Are you struggling to build your family, coping with infertility and loss, or feeling stressed by the demands of parenting? It is common to feel anxious, stressed or unsatisfied when life doesn't go as planned and you’re faced with unexpected challenges. You do not have to feel out of control or travel this journey alone. You deserve to receive therapy that is effective and tailored to you.

Looking at the world today, it’s hard to have hope about the future. You’ve always wanted to make a positive difference, but the sheer size and number of the problems facing humanity leaves you at a loss for where to start. When you talk to friends and family about your concerns, they either don’t see the problem or just make cynical comments, leaving you to feel the world’s pain on your own. Maybe you’re even having trouble managing your own life, adding to your self-doubt and despair. You want to believe that you are here for a reason, and you want to step confidently into your role in making the world a better place.

Transitions in our lives need to be marked and held to be integrated. The journey through can be dark and confusing, and how we adapt, grow, and who we look to for support, will illuminate our paths. I have had a focus on those contemporary rites of passage within my own experience, coming into adulthood, birth and parenthood, through relationships, my own identity, and facing our last goodbyes to loved ones. My work as a birth doula drew even more emphasis on the importance of our experiences around pregnancy and childbirth, and how celebrating the changing of our seasons was crucial to our sense of self.

Do you worry that you're too sensitive? You may be thinking: "I need to toughen up, I wish I could turn my feelings down a notch, Why can't I just get over it?, Why does it seem like I struggle more than others?, I feel so overwhelmed, or there must be something wrong with me." If you feel any of these ways, I want you to know that you're not alone, and you're not broken. In therapy, you’ll discover the value and uniqueness of being you. Instead of seeing your sensitivity as a weakness, it will become your strength. You can finally stop fighting against yourself and rest, knowing you are welcome in the world, just as you are.

Mindfulness-Based (MBCT) Therapists
For clients in Oakland with chronic pain, hypertension, heart disease, cancer, and other health issues such as anxiety and depression, mindfulness-based cognitive therapy, or MBCT, is a two-part therapy that aims to reduce stress, manage pain, and embrace the freedom to respond to situations by choice. MCBT blends two disciplines--cognitive therapy and mindfulness. Mindfulness helps by reflecting on moments and thoughts without passing judgment. MBCT clients pay close attention to their feelings to reach an objective mindset, thus viewing and combating life's unpleasant occurrences.

Mindfulness Based therapists in Oakland can help with issues like anxiety and depression in their role as Oakland MBCT therapists.
