Marriage & Family Therapist Registered Intern

If you are feeling overwhelmed and are experiencing anxiety, depression, parenting issues or relationship problems, individual psychotherapy can help you by offering a safe place just for you, so you can take a step back from your life, make sense of things, get some clarity, gain coping skills and a different perspective. My approach is to listen to you and treat you as the expert on your own life. I will try to reflect back what I'm hearing, make observations, point out patterns and help you to gain clarity so you can make decisions and take steps that work for you and fit with your priorities and values.

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!

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.

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

Within driving distance of Castro Valley

Having practiced psychotherapy for almost 30 years, I offer a very broad spectrum of skills, techniques and approaches. At the core I tend to combine creative intuition, compassion and completely non-judgemental openness with being very pragmatic and pro-active. I find that this combination allows me to help "un-knot" any stuckness a client shows up with. For more information about the way I practice, see my sites marriagemastery.com or marincouplecounseling.com or read my book The Heart of Relationship.

Psychotherapist

Kristina Schasker, M.A., MFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Castro Valley

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.

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.

Marriage and Family Therapist

I have been working as a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist for the last 17 years. I began my training as a psychotherapy intern while working at the AIDS Health Project of UCSF in San Francisco. I learned Brief Therapy techniques but also now provide long term psychotherapy for people wanting to do longer term work. I believe people enter psychotherapy for different reasons-sometimes to lower distressful symptoms they are experiencing. Other people want to examine issues from childhood that may have recently surfaced. Some are dealing with relationship issues. And still others want to gain a sense of awareness and insight- I have so often heard "I want to know myself better."

Psychotherapist

Amelia Katkov, MA, MFTI

MFTI

As an MFTI I provide traditional psychotherapy with an interpersonal and humanistic approach. I believe that each and every client is good and valuable, needing to be seen and heard for who they truly are. When we are in a space surrounded by unconditional warmth, love and a complete lack of judgement, we can begin to see our own value and build confidence. This foundation provides a strong support system for healing and continued growth.

Psychotherapist

Mey Saephan, MS, LMFT

Marriage and Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Castro Valley

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

Neal Winblad, MFT

Marriage, Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Castro Valley

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.
