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 am a psychotherapist and breath work practitioner based in the SF Bay Area and offering services online throughout CA. 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. While a lot of the work I do requires delving into the murky stuff, I like to make room for laughter, connection, and joy in the process.

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.

When you're looking for a Therapist, it's not an easy time. You’ve struggled to change behavior patterns, communicate better and gotten nowhere, Now you feel powerless as well as in a mess. 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.

Hi, My name is Scott. My interest in health and wellness began as a young adult after going through the mental health care system myself and having countless hours of unsuccessful therapy sessions. After many years of personal self-discovery and thousands of hours of professional training, I've been able to create an approach to psychotherapy that really works, and a life that I love and know I deserve. Choosing to do my own inner-work provides me with greater insight and makes me a therapist with integrity, one who is direct, results oriented, extremely resilient, and very compassionate.

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.

Healing looks different for all of us. As we navigate different seasons, relationships, and themes in life, it can be helpful to have a space that is yours. You are the expert of your experience, and I believe in healing practices that emphasize collaboration and connection. I show up with a relational approach, ready to meet you where you are and how you want to support growth and exploration. I value social justice, supporting a good fit between therapist and client, and flexibility. My practice integrates the honoring of your cultural values, intersecting identities and meaningful relationships that inform who we are.

The intimate relationship that develops in therapy requires being willing to be known deeply. Crisis, uncertainty, unwanted patterns, self doubt, self-criticism or anxiety lead people to therapy. Addressing internal conflict is a private and individual process. Therapy is an opportunity to understand yourself better. It is also a place to heal from the wounds of being “othered” relative to race, sexuality, gender, immigration, ethnicity, class, being donor conceived, disability, etc. Questions, fears and challenges in being understood both across real differences and similarities can be faced.

Many clients coming to me might experience: a desire to improve their relationships, communication skills, intimacy, recognizing self-sabotaging patterns, seek to understand their emotional experience, feel overwhelmed, or misunderstood. Additionally, negative body image, self-esteem, and feelings of shame may be present. My work here is often in uncovering how these issues have function, where the strength lies, and how all are an opportunity for transformation.

You may be feeling manic, anxious, depressed, hopeless, panicked, avoidant - riding waves of emotion as we all respond to and grapple with the rapid escalation of Covid-19 worldwide. Unexpected changes can trigger out of control feelings associated with earlier experiences of trauma and loss, and can also bring up intense fear around the vulnerability and uncertainty of the days ahead. Now is a time to reach out and ask for help, and take care of our selves, including tending to our mental health. We are all in this this together.

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.
