¶..You'll tap your strengths and enjoy them. We'll marvel at how the brain creates one adaptive "I" after another (side by side now, taking turns in one healthy person). We'll respect how they once protected you, and relax the outdated ones that tie you up. ¶..We can use the ways you're ready for change, so it feels natural. I see adults & elders delighted by fresh thinking, with new relief from false alarm.

Hi, thank you for taking a moment to view my page. Although I do welcome all clients, my specialty is helping high schoolers and young adults in college/graduate school who are experiencing stress, difficulty functioning, and unhappiness. The clients I see tend to be greatly successful in many areas of their life. They may even be told by the people around them that their life is "perfect." But still they feel a deep sadness or emptiness that never seems to ease no matter what they achieve or succeed at doing. If you feel this sadness, I believe that help and care is here for you today.

Finding the right therapist can be daunting, and for some, it can be the most difficult step. I offer a free 15 minute phone consultation so that you can assess if we are the right fit. I work with teens and adults presenting with concerns such as depression, anxiety, trauma, grief/ loss, chronic health concerns, relationship issues, and life transitions. In our work together we will explore your strengths and root you in them. We will define your values and explore how to live your life in harmony with them. We will also create space for the areas in your life where you want change and navigate the path to get you there.

Are you feeling depressed, anxious, struggling with relationship conflict or substances? Sometimes, the very strategies we use to feel safe, to belong, to get approval, and to feel loved – to survive – no longer serve us. When we try to carry these strategies into adulthood, it can lead to high conflict, challenging behaviors, anxiety, depression, and substance use. For couples and families, I work from an Emotion Focused Therapy approach exploring clients' reactivity, triggers, and hurts that underlie conflict and helping them find other ways to respond that lead to more trust, intimacy and connectedness.

To be honest, you probably don't actually NEED therapy. Things are going pretty well for the most part. You're slaying at work. You have fulfilling friendships. You're getting comfortable outside of your comfort zone. When you feel sad or anxious, your coping skills are pretty solid. And still . . . You want to level up. You're going through a life change, which you know will make you happy soon, but currently feels like being hit by a truck of mixed emotions. You want a fresh perspective on your relationship. You wonder about your doubts, your dreams, and the beautiful messes that make you you. And I'm so glad!

I once read a story about a man who would talk reassuringly to his cactus, letting it know that it was safe. The cactus learned that it no longer needed thorns. If you have had experiences that have closed off your openness to the world or your authentic self, you may have also grown thorns. Whether you have been touched by trauma, grief, loss, or simply an environment that does not understand you, I want to help you to find a way to live more fully. You have a place in the world.

I believe that the soul has an innate drive toward healing. We each have the capacity to heal ourselves if we can slow down enough to notice what is asking for our attention. I approach therapy as a weekly collaborative ritual in which clients can become more skilled at listening and giving voice to their inner knowing. Weaving together tools from expressive arts, somatic experiencing, and trauma-informed relational psychotherapy, I offer an integrated, whole-person approach in which we work as a team to uncover your intuitive guidance and learn how to tap in to the wisdom of your higher self.

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 Berkeley, this list of Teletherapyists 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 Berkeley 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 Berkeley are able to work with a wide range of issues. They offer in person sessions as well as Teletherapy in Berkeley

For example, if you're seeking a marriage counselor in Berkeley you'll find that most therapists are trained in marriage counseling or couples counseling in Berkeley and couples therapy. And they welcome families for family counseling in Berkeley or family therapy in Berkeley.
