Psychotherapist

Kristina Schasker, M.A., MFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of Castro Valley, CA

I am a licensed Marriage and Family Psychotherapist specializing in therapy for couples, individual adults and adolescents. I practice Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) which encourages clients to challenge the thoughts, beliefs and assumptions they hold about the world around them. CBT teaches clients that they can be more active in choosing how they will respond to life. Clients are encouraged to look at their current behaviors and change the ones that are not benefitting them. Clients become more empowered and take control of their lives. Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy can help put you back in the drivers seat and provide you with the tools you need to accomplish your goals.

Psychotherapist

Maren Gleason, LCSW

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

Within Driving Distance of Castro Valley, CA

I help clients find strengths and ways to manage difficult or challenging situations. I also help clients with histories of trauma and abuse come to terms with difficult memories, turning ghosts into ancestors. Ghosts scare us. Ancestors we remember, but they don't have the power to terrify us. Life provides many challenges that anyone can struggle with, whether it is a traumatic experience or a life long struggle to overcome anxieties, worries and depression. We all live in relationships and can learn so much about our strengths, challenges and possibilities. I would be happy to help you with understanding your relationships from a positive and strength based perspective.

Psychotherapist

Mey Saephan, MS

Marriage and Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of Castro Valley, CA

My approach to psychotherapy is a family systems/attachment approach. Knowing when it is safe to approach or avoid someone is learned in your upbringing. Those beliefs and strategies in relating to others may have worked in childhood, but now as an adult, these strategies are no longer working. Each person's way of loving is different. You will learn your love style while I provide you with a caring, nurturing, but challenging presence. I will help you understand your style, teach you new skills, and challenge you to apply those new strategies in relationship with others. I do provide a free consultation, when clients ask me.

Psychotherapist

Dan Quinn, Psy.D.

Clinical Psychologist

Within Driving Distance of Castro Valley, CA

For reasons that are not entirely clear, most people are helped by sitting down with someone who respects them and understands them, and devotes time to listening to them. I practice depth psychotherapy, but I often use very practical approached like cognitive-behavioral therapy, to help my clients get past life obstacles and moving forward in their lives.

Psychotherapist

Sara Denman, Psy.D.

Dr. Sara Denman

Within Driving Distance of Castro Valley, CA

Psychotherapy can be very helpful to most people for many different issues or challenges. Through psychotherapy, a person learns what his/her strengths and weakness are which is beneficial in developing ways to overcome struggles. Psychotherapy also helps put the puzzle together about how symptoms developed originally. Often this knowledge alone helps people figure out what path he/she should take to reach goals.

Psychotherapist

Neal Winblad, MFT

Marriage, Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of Castro Valley, CA

I love doing psychotherapy with individuals. It is an exploration of who you are, your stengths, where to you get stuck? Many issues you may be struggling with just vanish with a new understanding of your life and your body's responses to stress and trauma. Sometimes, specific tools and skills need to be learned and practiced. Safety and confidetiality are the first requirements in working well together. Next comes attunement. Have you ever felt like someone really really gets you? That is what good therapy does. Being really understood by someone makes us feel better about ourselves and removes our shame, allowing us to connect with others and enjoy our life rather than be burdened by it.

Psychotherapist

Esther Lerman, M.A., M.F.T.

Marriage and Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of Castro Valley, CA

Psychotherapy is a process of entering into a trusting, confidential relationship with a professionally trained therapist to explore your inner and outer conflicts, anxieties, relationship problems and traumas of all kinds, big and small. We all carry around inner voices and experiences from our childhood and youth, as well as from experiences in adulthood, which we are unaware of but have a big impact on our experience of self, other and Life itself. Psychotherapy is a safe place to sort it out and develop more sense of self-confidence, choice and strength. You should feel free to try different therapists and kind of therapy to see what feels right to you and trust your intuition.

Psychotherapist

Jayn Rajandran, LMFT, CGE, DTS, MA I/O Psychology

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of Castro Valley, CA

I am a solution-based therapist; meaning I tend to be “strength-based” as opposed to “insight-oriented.” I work hard to identify your strengths in order to help you use these transferable skills in areas where you want to improve. When a client and I are able to tap into the right system to solve problems, the client’s constant efforts to right themselves will eventually work. We work hard as a team by believing that you can do this but just do not know how. I tend to work as a coach and a facilitator in moving you towards your goals by teaching you the tools and skills. Very often, when it is a life transition issue, you should be able to graduate, between 3-6 months.

Psychotherapist

Valerie V. Veza, L.C.S.W, C.HT.

Psychotherapist

Margaret Petersen, MA, MFT

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of Castro Valley, CA

Are you noticing a vague sense of inner angst that just doesn't go away, despite your best intentions? Are you noticing the same patterns or cycles with yourself or with relationships that leave you feeling sad, angry, worried, depressed, or hurt? So often we notice that a part of us is off kilter, but without the tools and support to change, we tend to end up in the same negative patterns again and again, despite our desire to change. By offering specific specific tools for inner work and outer relationships, together we can help you move to a place of feeling empowered and at peace within. Please feel free to give me a call today at 925-520-5263.

Psychotherapist

Kevin Fleming Ph.D.

Coach/Change Agent/Consultant

Within Driving Distance of Castro Valley, CA

James Hillman once said, "We've had a hundred years of psychotherapy and the world is getting worse." While there are many occasions where the validation and listening endemic to psychotherapy makes sense, there are times where we over assume that "feeling better" and "changing behavior" are the same. Grey Matters International, Inc. goes after the forgotten brain laws to behavior change that therapists miss when processing hours and hours of dialogues with people. Utilizing a cutting edge technology to facilitate the emotional process of change, we can make the therapy process way more effective, faster, and with less money spent.

Psychotherapist

Jeff Cohen, MA, MFT

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of Castro Valley, CA

Surprising as it may be, what happens to us does not determine our happiness so much as how we relate to what happens. Psychotherapy provides an environment and an opportunity to explore the ways you relate to your experience, and in so doing to help you have more fulfilling relationships with others, and a greater sense of meaning and understanding in your life. It also helps you make better choices and change unhelpful, limiting behaviors and relational patterns. Incorporating Buddhist mindfulness practice, as well as current understanding of how the brain processes information, I'm very engaged and collaborative in helping you achieve the goals you want to address in our work.

Psychotherapist

Matthew Lindgren, MFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of Castro Valley, CA

Simply taking the time to observe thoughts and emotions is often enough to create a radical shift. Research shows that mindfulness interventions are particularly good at treating depression. I'm happy to offer these interventions to adults and children in my Oakland practice. http://matthewlindgren.com/Oakland-therapist-techniques/therapy-mindfulness.html

Psychotherapist

Cynthia Mansur, MFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of Castro Valley, CA

I employ a solution-focused approach to therapy so you can start feeling better right away. By focusing on solutions rather than remaining stuck in "problem-land," you're likely to start seeing results quickly, and this can motivate you to continue making positive changes in your life. I'll help you recognize what's getting in the way of having the life you deserve, and what changes you can make to transform your life. By learning to be more true to yourself, you'll become happier as well. My style is both gentle and direct, and clients tend to feel very much at ease working with me. If you'd like to improve the quality of your life, contact me at 510-508-2169 for a free phone consultation.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

As a psychotherapist, my goal is to support my clients in their process of personal discovery. My intention is to create a safe environment in which to support and facilitate my clients’ personal growth. I encourage my clients to learn and practice the kinds of behaviors that provide them with feelings of clarity and personal satisfaction. I help clients identify concerns, problems or situations in their lives that interfere with their ability to feel happy and function successfully. In the course of exploring the nature and cause of their unhappiness or frustration they are better able to effect changes in their attitudes and behaviors, thereby making their lives more fulfilling.

Psychotherapy is a collaborative process, in which one can feel safe to disclose their most intimate thoughts without being judged. My approach is to be open, honest, empathic, and realistic. We work together to decide what works best for you. In addition, the therapeutic relationship is one that should invoke change and growth from the very first session. Starting with the initial appointment, you should feel relief.

Psychotherapist

Todd Harvey, MFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of Castro Valley, CA

Healthy relationships make healthy people. Unfortunately, about 50% of our society, while their parents may have loved them dearly, didn't get enough attachment and connection. When this happens, the normal / natural response is depression, anger, excess perfectionism, feeling uncomfortable in your skin, etc. While I may use several modalities, I am always being present and attuning to you in a way that gives you permission to be who you are. My experience is this creates a re-wiring of the "attachment / connecting" neuropathways in your brain. My clients, usually between 6 months and 2 years experience significant emotional shifts that allow them to feel comfortable in their own skin.

Psychotherapist

June Timberlake, MA, LMFT, DCEP

What is psychotherapy? It is a space that supports you in working through the pressures of anxiety, depression, grief and loss, relationship struggles, work/life stress, and even to explore life enhancement and goal achievements. It is a judgement free place where someone listens, gives you space to tell your truth, seeks to understands what you are going through and is specially equipped to support you with processes to move you beyond these challenges.

Alex Hoeplinger Patten, M.A.

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

Within Driving Distance of Castro Valley, CA

My approach is grounded in an existential-humanistic psychology tradition that is inspired by relational and psychodynamic therapeutic philosophies. What this essentially means is that I see my role as your therapist as one that tries to see you in a holistic way through dialogue so that you may better see yourself (your patterns, meaning behind your experience, etc.), and create the person that you want to become through a healthier mindset and future choices.

Psychotherapist

Bryan Newman, MA, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of Castro Valley, CA

I practice psychotherapy from a engaged, kind and collaborative stance. I have trained in several contemporary and well-researched psychotherapy modalities that are designed to maximize both a sense of safety and trust in the therapy relationship, as well as demonstrative, positive change in a client's life. Many clients who have found previous psychotherapy less than effective for them find that they are able to meet their therapeutic goals in their work with me.

Psychotherapist

Joanne Davis, M.A.

Marriage and Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of Castro Valley, CA

I help adults finally become who they were meant to be, rather than who they needed to be as children to fit in, feel loved or to cope with overwhelming situations or traumas. The residue of confusing, and self-alienating, childhood beliefs such as: I’m unlovable; unworthy; incompetent; unsafe or I can’t get my needs met, can interfere and sabotage a fulfilling life. It can cause depression, anxiety, poor relationships and addictions. In working together we can gently, and collaboratively, discover and amplify an authentic sense of self-knowledge, confidence and empowerment. We transform old patterns and traumas so they lose their power. We clear a path for more harmony and fulfillment

Psychotherapist

Charis Khoury, MA, MFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of Castro Valley, CA

You don't need to do it all alone. And turns out, as more and more brain research is showing us, you're not meant to. Many of our original wounds, with echoes in our current lives, come from past and often early relationships. And while there are many valuable paths to healing, psychotherapy provides a special safe relationship in which these past experiences can be rewired and new aspects of yourself can be discovered or rediscovered. With compassionate reflection, encouragement, and challenge, transformation can happen!

Psychotherapist

Debbie Bauer, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of Castro Valley, CA

Often in our lives we can benefit from having a safe compassionate listener outside of our family or friends circle. A neutral party that can be both direct and empathetic can help you examine troubling emotions and life issues that are contributing to a less than satisfying life. You will feel heard and understood as we explore and move through obstacles that may be interfering with your stability. I will help you access your personal strengths and resources to develop strategies to change what is not working and learn new ways to be healthier / happier in your world. Life will never be perfect however our ability to manage life can make a world of difference in our well being.

Josh Stern, MA, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of Castro Valley, CA

Life comes without a guide. Therapy is about finding it. Life is beautiful, hard, messy, and confusing. It contains polar opposites and sometimes at the very same moment. Therapy is about pausing, reflecting, and engaging in the process of your life. I offer my clients the chance to make sense of their past, to experience their present, and dictate their future. My hope and belief is that the life you want is out there. Allow me to help you in living it.

Psychotherapist

Laurie Chandler, MA

LMFT 86949

Within Driving Distance of Castro Valley, CA

The Greek meaning of psychotherapy is to "tend soul." Talking to a therapist, working with dreams and symptoms, and listening to yourself can improve your life. I help people make choices from a place that resonates with their deepest self. My goal for you is well-being, happiness, and meaning in your career, relationships and creative pursuits. Therapy can give you a new perspective on long-standing or new problems and dynamics. We look at the past or stay in the present as needed. There is no judgment or assessment simply a dialogue to focus on you and your own healing process.

Psychotherapist

Anne Perry, Psy.D

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

Within Driving Distance of Castro Valley, CA

Beginning therapy, especially if you have never tried it before, can be intimidating and can require courage and a leap of faith. This is why I offer a free 20 minute initial phone consultation, and consider the first session to be a time for the client and therapist to get to know each other, and to address all questions about the therapeutic process.I believe psychotherapy is about growth and change, as well as enhancing your own internal wisdom to help you lead a fuller and more satisfying life. I believe client/therapist fit is very important, and believe that active collaboration towards agreed upon goals is a useful first step in the healing process towards change.

LIcensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of Castro Valley, CA

With compassion, I provide a safe and peaceful place to heal. I help my clients recognize their true potential while helping them overcome their emotional difficulties. I use Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, which has a strong basis in science, to overcome depression, anxiety, and a wide range of challenges. Recognizing that past trauma can often create roadblocks to achieving one's greatest potential, I chose to get trained n Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR). This method has allowed me to help expedite the healing process from past traumas and deep emotional wounds that once caused them to feel stuck and helpless.

Psychotherapist

Marriage and Family Therapist

Feeling stuck in a cycle that is causing you pain or a lack of fulfillment leaves you open to increased stress, followed by more pain and lack of fulfillment. This puts a strain on your relationships and your sense of well-being. Maybe you feel stuck in addiction, depression, anxiety, a relationship you want to change, a job that doesn't satisfy you anymore. Maybe you have specific ways of interacting with people that you find doesn't serve you anymore- yelling, arguing, passivity, keeping your guard up. We explore your patterns, your symptoms and the reasons they were useful to you. I will teach you knew ways of managing your emotions and ways to diminish patterns that no longer serve you.

I work with you to get gradually deeper inside whatever issues are troubling you. At your own pace, using techniques that are comfortable to you, we get to the feelings, beliefs about yourself or others, that underlie problem situations at work or in relationship. We identify if childhood issues or current traumas are causing symptoms, and together choose from a range of techniques for working them through. We build a relationship of trust that enables you to risk opening up with me, being honest with me, and using my support.

I combine Gestalt Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Techniques, Body Awareness Practices, Eye Movement Desensitization Repossessing to help process past hurts, with Mindfulness Practices to help clients know themselves more deeply and be more connected to themselves. When people can have greater intimacy with themselves, they can have greater intimacy with others.

Psychotherapist

Emily Lyon, PhD

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

Within Driving Distance of Castro Valley, CA

I see psychotherapy as a process of reflecting on the difficulties in your life in the context of a gradually developing relationship of safety and trust with an understanding therapist. In this relationship you can begin to open up issues and feelings that may have felt too difficult to explore on your own. An experienced therapist will help you to gain new insights on your life, perhaps pointing to areas where growth can occur. Issues that are painful can be addressed as you are ready and can often be resolved by exploring all the complex factors involved. Good psychotherapy will give you a deeper understanding and appreciation of yourself, and the freedom to make new choices.

Are you having trouble finding constructive ways to deal with problems or issues in your life? Are those problems or issues causing you a great deal of pain that persists for more than a few days? For most people, psychotherapy can be extremely helpful when one is grappling with a life, relationship or work issue, or a specific mental health concern. With over 26 years of experience, I offer a collaborative psychotherapy that is pragmatic, problem-solving and goal-oriented. If you have a strong desire to change and are willing to alter those aspects of your life that are no longer working for you, psychotherapy with a skilled and experienced psychotherapist will enhance your life.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor

With my background in engineering, I tend to rely on more evidence-based therapy approaches, and I am likely more directive and goal-oriented than other therapists. We will establish what you want to accomplish in therapy and then we will agree on a plan for making that happen. There are many tools in my tool belt, including EMDR (a trauma resolution therapy), cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), Gottman training (for couples), hypnosis, systematic desensitization, mindfulness meditation, and other interventions. Most of my clients don't want to be in therapy for years, so we work together on resolving whatever issues they have in the most effective and efficient way possible.

Marriage & Family Therapist, Registered Art Therapist

Within Driving Distance of Castro Valley, CA

In my practice I work with children, teens and their families to help them overcome what sometimes is debilitating emotional distress. Whether it's issues around ADHD, Adoption, Anxiety, Autism Spectrum Disorders, or Depression, I work with a number of modalities like art, play and sand play therapy to help the children communicate and learn about the emotions behind their behavior. In a place and time that is only for them, they learn to trust as they learn tools that will eventually help them lead happy and capable lives. I also work with children in groups and with individual adults.

I approach psychotherapy as a collaborative process between therapist and client in which you will gain insight into your inner truth and engage your own innate healing capacity. Together we will explore and honor the amazing inner landscape that makes you uniquely you. If past trauma or difficult childhood experiences are impacting your life today, I can help you transcend your past and engage more joyfully in your present life. I offer a safe, respectful, compassionate place to discover and resolve whatever is holding you back from the authentic life you so want and deserve.
