I'm a psychotherapist, relationship specialist, wife and mom. Many of us can recognize patterns of our behavior that were previously helpful but now get in the way of the kinds of relationships we want. In many ways navigating difficult circumstances allowed us to survive or even thrive, however the ways we find now to cope don’t benefit us in the long run. The ways these interactions show up can surprise us at times, because while our lives can feel full and abundant, there can also be a flip side of sadness, resentment, and worry.

I am called to support individuals and couples ready to liberate themselves from stress and overwhelm to create more fulfilling relationships and lead happier, more balanced lives. Despite what brings you to therapy, my goal is for you to leave with the ability to respond effectively to life's challenges. I provide a safe, supportive environment for you to begin exploring your feelings, needs and internal reality. Through mindfulness, interactive dialogue and practical wisdom we will invite compassionate curiosity around old patterns that no longer serve you. Visit me at www.deannajimenez.com.

Anxiety sucks. It can keep us stuck in an exhausting inner battle of fear and panic. Perhaps you have had a panic attack and worry about having another one. Or maybe you find yourself frequently worrying about your relationship with your partner. Obsessive thoughts might be keeping you up at night and disrupting your ability to focus at work. And you might feel shame or embarrassment that you can't get your anxiety under control. You might be trying to cope with your anxiety by staying busy, distracting yourself with technology, or turning to drugs or drinking. The good news is, it does not have to be this way.

I work with clients at my office in Oakland near the Rockridge Bart Station. I prefer to work with a client who will come to sessions even when it is challenging to do so and allow the therapy relationship to open up space for safe exploration of the realities of life, ways to cope with reality, and improve spiritual and mental strength. Therefore, my client would demonstrate commitment to the therapy relationship, whether it is for brief therapy or long-term work, by doing the work necessary to understand the self and make necessary life decisions in order to maximize the availability of life energy.

Being stuck is scary, painful and frustrating. You get locked into worrying. You feel pressure to do things perfectly. It's hard to make decisions. Anxiety makes it hard to sleep. Addictions might arise: food, sex, substance or over working. You might think "something is horribly wrong and I must fix it NOW!" It's really tricky to be a human being sometimes. I have worked with clients for 30 years and have learned from my clients that getting unstuck is paradoxical: it involves both accepting where you are and being willing to change and grow.

My name is Sarah Marie and I work with adults who feel like their inner critic is controlling their life. Their anxiety has overridden their playfulness. They fear they give too much power to other people's opinion of them. Often they are unsure if their relationships are healthy and if they are dating they don't want to repeat patterns they know do not work. This lack of confidence and ease with self, plus the anxiety about the health of their relationships has resulted in all or some of the following issues: generalized anxiety, social anxiety, depression and/or a general lack of joyfulness and playfulness.

If someone has mentioned you talking to a professional, you could often catch yourself anxiously focusing on what you imagine other people are thinking about you. You might be surprised at the amount of relief you can feel by talking to a caring, invested but objective professional about what's going on and getting some perspective. You can start exactly where you are.
