"¶..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 We'll respect how they once protected you, and relax the outdated ones that tie you up.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."

"Simply put, I help you feel better in your life. What does this mean? You have the degree, the job, maybe even the house, and it all looks good on paper. But inside, you're still struggling. Maybe with anxiety or depression, in your marriage or with your mother, or you struggle with imposter syndrome at work or feeling generally unfulfilled and maybe even miserable with your seemingly great life. You find yourself waking up at 3am with racing thoughts, numbing out after work, or constantly bickering with your partner and you're totally sick of it. Something HAS to change. That's where I come in. "

Psychodynamic Therapists
Psychodynamic therapy in Berkeley, also known as insight-oriented therapy, evolved from Freudian psychoanalysis. Like adherents of psychoanalysis, psychodynamic therapists believe that bringing the unconscious into conscious awareness promotes insight and resolves conflict. But psychodynamic therapy is briefer and less intensive than psychoanalysis and also focuses on the relationship between the therapist and the client, as a way to learn about how the client relates to everyone in their life.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in Berkeley are able to work with a wide range of issues.

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.
