Oakland, CA 94619
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.

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 utilize integrative wellness practices to support my clients in releasing negative beliefs, processing difficult emotions, healing past wounds and cultivating a deeper sense of meaning in their lives. I work from a relational framework, meaning that I believe the authentic connection between a client and a therapist is a profound catalyst for change.

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.

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.

Make therapy a gift to yourself and the journey of a lifetime. Experience the therapeutic process as an exploration into a landscape full of your own creative capacities, strengths, and dreams that already exist. Replace out-dated belief systems with new ones that better reflect your current, authentic self. Continue the process of growing into the person you believe yourself to be. Move from the victim to the empowered. I work in collaborative ways with you, helping to identifying assumptions, thoughts, and beliefs that are keeping you from the experiences, relationships, and life that you want.

I work online with clients around the world, in particular the Middle East and California. Many of my clients are expats and many are locals living in areas where psychotherapy is either underdeveloped or unavailable. Some are busy professionals in California and elsewhere who prefer to do video-based therapy from home or hotel. One of my specialities is working with women who are navigating the sexual, spiritual and social challenges of menopause. I like to help people who are feeling lonely, uncertain, depressed, anxious and/or confused find their way to a more comfortable and satisfying life.

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.

Peer Relationships in Laurel, Oakland

Teens want to be with people their own age - their peers. During their adolescent years, teens and tweens often spend more time with their peers than with their parents. Through their peer relationships, they can be both connected and independent, as they grow away from their parents' images of them and develop identities of their own. Peers provide a place for accepting the feelings, thoughts and actions that come with the search for identity.

Positive Peer Pressure in Laurel, Oakland

The ability to develop healthy friendships and peer relationships depends on a teen's self-identity and self-esteem. Peer pressure can encourage your teen's energy and motivate your teen to conform to healthy behavior. Peers can act as positive role models and demonstrate constructive social behavior. Peers listen to, accept, and understand the frustrations, challenges, and concerns of being a tween or teenager.
