My potential client is experiencing anxiety. This can show up as sleeplessness, repetitive worries and intrusive thoughts, overwhelm and physical symptoms, and shutting down. My potential client is experiencing burnout. This can show up as exhaustion, apathy, hopelessness, overwhelm at small things, negative self-talk, and straight-up rebellion from the body. Joy is hard to come by. My potential client is experiencing loneliness. This can come from isolation, from the removal of regular socializing, and from negative self-talk.

It takes courage to start working with a new therapist. The very fact that you’re considering it probably means you’re getting ready to make some significant changes in your life. My approach to therapy focuses on understanding and accepting you as you are right now, and creating a safe space where you can figure out where you want to go from here. We’ll work together as you get ready to make the sometimes tough (and rewarding) changes that will give you a better life. We will also deal with any stresses you're experiencing due to the coronavirus, including the isolation of sheltering in place and uncertainties about the future.

To paraphrase Alice Miller: the opposite of depression isn't happiness; it's vitality. My clients are people who want to feel more in control, more at peace, more effective, more connected, more present, more focused, more decisive, more flexible… more alive. They seek relief from patterns -- sometimes chronic and severe, sometimes only subtly nagging -- of painful feelings, negative thoughts and self-sabotaging behaviors that stem from their experience of growing up in particular worlds and particular histories that were traumatic or difficult or confusing.

Maybe you are pursuing something that is important to you--a relationship, family, degree, a career... Yet you find yourself overwhelmed, depressed, angry, or unable to move forward. Maybe you act differently in an effort to meet someone else’s expectations, win the approval of others, avoid being picked on, or just to fit in. This act of contorting one’s self can be taxing, and you might wonder who you actually are these days. Sometimes remnants we carry from our past can impact the building meaningful relationships with others. This can interrupt the pursuit of important life goals and stifle us from becoming our truest selves.

Teletherapy (Online Therapy, Virtual Therapists) Therapists
Teletherapy and Online counseling have grown enormously as a medium for therapy since the advent of social distancing. Most therapists are happy to provide sessions by video or phone.

All professionals are licensed to provide video therapy to clients within the State in which they hold their license. Cross State licensing exists, but is rare.

So if you're a client in 94704, this list of teletherapists are licensed to provide therapy to you online (by phone, video or text based chat) because they are within your state. They are sorted nearest to furthest, with professionals in 94704 listed first.

Teletherapy via phone or video can be very similar to conventional in person sessions. The message is the same, even if the medium is different. There are some advantages in the form of convenience, lack of travel and being in comfort of your own home. Set against those, professionals find it more difficult to read non-verbal signals of their clients, and you may find you yourself can be more easily distracted.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in 94704 are able to work with a wide range of issues and communities, including the BIPOC community in 94704. They offer in person sessions as well as Teletherapy in 94704
