I personally believe that we are so much more than the problems in our lives. We are thinking, feeling human beings and that gives us a front row seat to the human experience. As we strive to be our best, we can sometimes find ourselves lost, stuck, confused, or off track. If this is you, I can help. I offer a warm, welcoming, safe space for you to bring any thoughts, feelings, or problems that are preventing you from being your best. You are not in this alone. Let's take the first step together on your new journey!

Without meaning and the chance to therapeutically practice new insights and behaviors, we may suffer unnecessarily during times of high stress, trauma, or in daily life. Feelings may become like overwhelming floods of dread, sorrow or numbness, thinking becomes confused, panicky, and self-critical, joy is lost. Together we can make good use of your strengths, symptoms and external challenges. Through exploring and deepening our understanding and trust in your own inner world, dignity and liveliness may be restored even under the most challenging or enduring of circumstances, illnesses or problems.

Sometimes the coping strategies that we use no longer work for us. And the usual support systems we turn to, are at times just not enough. Therapy can be an added support to help us figure out new strategies to cope with the challenges and times of transition in our lives. I provide a calm and reflective space, where together we will reach a deeper understanding of what holds you back and what changes you need to make to live your life more fully. Some areas of specialization include women's issues, perinatal and postnatal disorders, early parenting and cancer.

I am a clinical psychologist who provides individual and family therapy for youth and adults, and parenting support. I have experience with mood disorders (depression, anxiety), trauma, managing learning challenges, adoption, grief, and loss. My approach varies, drawing from one’s strengths in helping address their unique struggles. I integrate socioeconomic, cultural, gender, and sexual identity issues into therapeutic work. One of my specialities is reflecting on one’s challenges in the context of intergenerational trauma. A person’s family history can shape our relationships with others in both resilient and challenging ways.

I will interrupt you a lot, that is what meditation does. It interrupts our stories about ourselves and the world around us. I will also listen to you, deeply. That is another way meditation helps, we learn to listen to ourselves deeply. The word akrasia means 'out of control' and is used to describe the way we continue to do things that we know is not in our best interest, or don't do things that we know are in our best interest. Most people feel relief just to know there is word for it. The cause of akrasia is said to be a lack of information and meditation gives us access to the information we need to change.

My approach to therapy is relational and integrative. I believe that we all have a deep capacity for healing, but it can be difficult to fully access our inner strengths and resources without support. Together, we can uncover ways you are feeling stuck, and chip away at blockages that may have developed due to intergenerational trauma, early wounds, losses, and other challenging circumstances. Patterns that are no longer serving you can be illuminated and disrupted, creating space for more comfort, joy, and ease. Greater levels of self-awareness and self-acceptance can emerge as we explore your inner world.

Carl Jung said, "I would rather be whole than good." Very often we put pressure on ourselves to "be" a certain way, so much that life can start to feel like acting versus living. This pressure tends to place stress on individuals and can often lead to anxiety, depression, and stress. I believe that therapy can be a tool to take off the masks we have learned to put on and begin to live from our whole self; finding freedom and our creativity. I believe that through compassion for all the parts of ourself we step closer to freedom.

Sometimes we feel a resistance towards seeking help. You may come from a community or family that deems it to be taboo, or a society that invalidates your experience. Together we will work to face feelings of shame, anxiety, doubt, and the trauma that stems from these environments. Let's find and build on the connections that you need to step into your power & deconstruct any thoughts of inadequacy. My role is to help you bring them to the front line and hold space as you confront them.

As we begin to look more deeply at who we are, we can move toward a life that has increased balance and fulfillment.

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 Oakland, 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 Oakland 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.

Please discuss with the professional the app you'd like to use e.g. Zoom, Skype, FaceTime, Facebook Messenger or WhatsApp. Professionals sometimes prefer HIPAA tailored apps such as Zoom, VSee or Doxy.me.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in Oakland are able to work with a wide range of issues. They offer in person sessions as well as Teletherapy in Oakland

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