Taryn Manuel, MA, LMFT, Marriage & Family Therapist in Berkeley
Taryn Manuel is not currently accepting new clients.
Are you seeking a space where your authentic self feels seen and understood? Therapy is a holding environment for you to express a range of emotions verbally and non-verbally. I provide an opportunity to do this through consistency and compassion. My passion is working with families, adults, and children and teens by assisting them to tap into their internal & external resources to heal and live more fully. Some of my unique traits people notice are I snort when I laugh and am very engaging :) I encourage people I work with to embrace themselves and develop space for inner kindness.
I implement a relational and strengths based approach by seeing my clients for who they are, establishing a space of trust and respect, and connecting heart to heart. I highlight clients' capabilities and draw attention to continued areas of growth through multiple modalities including talk therapy, humor, and creative approaches.
My therapeutic lens is framed by my work with youth and families dealing with complex trauma, education and clinical hours, and engagement in dance, group fitness, meditation, and personal self-growth work. Experience providing ongoing family therapy and desire to work more with siblings, couples, and those in alternative relationships.
