Announcement icon My clients have the option of doing therapy using secure videoconferencing during this time of our shelter-in-place mandate.
If you feel stuck -- whether in the dark pit of depression, the loneliness of an unfulfilling relationship, or the bewilderment of grief -- I would welcome the chance to connect with you. In my twelve years of practice, I have helped clients to emerge renewed from some of life's hardest places.
My approach to therapy emphasizes empathic attunement and active listening. I will show up for you fully, with warmth, caring and openness. Together, we will challenge beliefs that are holding you back, deepen your understanding of yourself, and help you to develop practical tools to address your needs.
I know how hard it is to take that first step. But I have seen the powerful impacts therapy has had on my clients' lives, and I would welcome the chance to help you find healing and wholeness. Please feel free to call, or book online by going to my website. While in-person sessions are preferred, I also offer telemedicine sessions via secure video call.

Sylvia Wenninger's Groups

Berkeley Humane Pet Loss Group

Have you lost a pet and are you finding it hard to get by day-to-day? Joining others who care and who understand this unique kind of grief can be a great source of comfort. I co-facilitate a monthly drop-in pet loss support group. We meet the third Tuesday of each month, 7-8:30pm. It is free, though donations are greatly appreciated. Please join us.
