I created The Relationship Model of Addiction, a new paradigm for understanding addiction and recovery. Addiction is viewed as a relationship (not a disease), with a means of relief of pain from unmet emotional needs. Recovery is seen as a three-stage transitional journey out of unhealthy relationships and into healthy ones: Stage I – Breaking-up; Stage II – Developing the Relationship with Self; Stage III – Creating Emotionally Nourishing Relationships.The over-arching theme in all of the work I do is to empower the transformation of relationships by developing the relationship with Self.

Most of us hit seasons where we feel stuck, empty, or deeply anxious. My job is to help clients get unstuck and to find a ground of meaning, motivation, and a new vision for healthy relationships. For some clients, therapy is brief and very solution-focused (5-12 sessions), though my preference is to work with clients interested in deeper change, which often requires more time. For many, we explore more deeply their personality structure, the early roots of their relational styles, and the spiritual habits of the heart that often make the difference between thriving and merely surviving. Let's get to work!

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 Orinda, 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 Orinda 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 Orinda are able to work with a wide range of issues and communities, including the BIPOC community in Orinda. They offer in person sessions as well as Teletherapy in Orinda

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