Family Counselor

Debbie Bauer, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

2255 Morello Ave, Suite 103, Pleasant Hill, CA

Conflicts in a family can become so routine that it may be difficult for you to determine which issues are important and which have become automatic battles. I can provide your family a safe place to work through this with an objective and neutral perspective that allows everyone to hear and everyone to be heard. Frequent arguing, nagging, complaining - all intensify the stress of daily life. Your family can learn to live harmoniously - not perfectly without ever having conflict - but without the need for "winners" and "losers" in constant tug of wars. It is exhausting and unhealthy to live with tension in your home. Call me today and let's begin easing that tension and regaining calm.

Paul Ginocchio, M.A., LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

37 Quail Court, Suite 201, Walnut Creek, CA 94596, Walnut Creek, CA

By the time a parent is considering counseling for their child, they may have experienced a variety of emotions ranging from: sadness, fear, shame or anger. It can be very helpful to have a neutral professional to help teach the young person and their families how to learn different ways to think, behave, and communicate. Psychotherapy can help children, adolescents, and their families in a variety of ways – getting emotional support, resolving conflicts between family members, and trying out new solutions to old problems.

Galina Litvin, MFTI

Marriage and Family Therapist

1250 pine street #100, Walnut Creek, CA

Family therapy includes working with the family as a whole unit. We will work together to improve the family relationships, interactional patterns, and behavioral patterns of each of the family members. We work together to restructure the family dynamic and to realign all the family members to be more in tune with one another. The goal is to reduce family conflict and dysfunctional familial patterns.

Misha Gutkin, PhD

Licensed Psychologist

2930 Camino Diablo, Suite 305, Walnut Creek, CA

Most families want to make their relationships within the family more positive and communication more effective. Therefore, developing healthy interactions within a family unit is a key for survival of those relationships. Different members of the family can have their own problems which can have a negative impact on the entire family. In those cases, helping family members (often teens or children) resolve their own problems while working with others on supporting them in their journey becomes the goal of therapy.

Family Counselor

Grace Malonai, Ph.D., LPCC

Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor

2940 Camino Diablo, Suite 150, Walnut Creek, CA 94597, Walnut Creek, CA

My work is founded on family systems theories, including Narrative Therapy. From this therapeutic perspective, clients are seen as interconnected with and part of a larger system, primarily the family. Systems therapy touts the importance of exploring how clients relate within and to their own personal contexts. This is not just their families, but includes an extended community of school or work, culture, history, and other external influences. I see my role as a partner to my clients, as they journey on the path of authoring their own stories.

Maureen Loftis, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Family dynamics can be very hard to navigate. I have experience helping families improve communication and reduce conflicts. I work with families with young children and teens to families wanting to resolve conflicts between parents and adult children. No matter how long conflicts have been going on in a family system, there are always tools to make a change and create healthier and more enjoyable ways of interacting.

Are you feeling stuck? When you’re depressed, anxious or overwhelmed, it feels that life is always difficult. Taking the time to work through challenges in therapy improve your life in ways you never imagined. I am a therapist who helps clients manage anxiety and break through depression. My style is warm and nonjudgmental, and I work collaboratively with a wide range of clients. I especially enjoy working with parents, and I have a great deal of experience with postpartum depression and anxiety. Using insight-oriented psychotherapy and mindfulness techniques, I will help you find a way to stop feeling stuck and move forward.

Family Counselor

Kathryn Kinsey, LCSW

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

281 East H Street, Benicia, CA

Family counseling is the logical treatment of choice when couples are struggling to deal with a child having behavioral or social problems or when a family undergoes major changes - a new step-parent, the birth or loss of a family member, a move, disruption of the social support network, or marital discord. All members of the family may be included in the sessions and create a joint plan for working toward resolution of the problem or the sessions may focus on the parents working together to bring about positive change.

Family Counselor

Alex Hoeplinger, M.A.

Registered MFT Intern (#76155) & Registered PCC Intern (#351)

3179 College Ave., Berkeley, CA, CA

I help families work through their struggles, differences, and patterns by getting each member to focus on how the struggles, fights, and cycles happen. I help families tune into their patterns while exploring the collective and individual meaning behind those patterns. I start by getting a general feel for the dynamic by observing how you function. Then I try to guide discussion in very simple and concrete ways so that each member can see how they are interacting with the larger dynamic. This allows opportunity for a new perspective while creating the space for change and growth. I will work with you in discovering how you and your family affect each other so that you can grow together.

Family Counselor

Charis Khoury, MA, MFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist #87389

1730 Martin Luther King Jr Way, Berkeley, CA

I particularly enjoy working with pairs within a family system—a mother and daughter for instance or siblings. Family members who are longing to be closer to each other and having trouble doing it, or wanting to better communicate. This isn't about trying to fix another person or convince them of our views. In therapy, getting to deeper levels of empathy and understanding with the people closest to us can solve a lot of issues on its own, building respect and tolerance for differences, and a gratifying sense of connection. It takes courage, effort, and the willingness to lay down our swords and shields, but it is worth it.
