Laurel
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.

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.

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.
