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.

From the minute you walk in the room, I will be collaborating with you to help you feel better and find ways to solve your problems. Whatever happened to you in the past or present time that has put you in the stuck state you are now in, therapy can help you to see why your situation is not hopeless. Change is always possible, if you are willing to work for it. Most people start psychotherapy at the point where they, their friends and their families can no longer provide the answers they need. I will listen to you and work with you to find solutions to the situations that are troubling you most. Feel free to contact me to see if we might be a good match for working together

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.

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

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.

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.

Psychotherapy is a unique opportunity to discover the real obstacles to your progress towards a life and the relationships you want. My active, engaging, and goal-oriented style of therapy is focused on what is happening for you right now. We may also dip into the past and consider the future when it is helpful to you. But exploring your present-moment experience, with mindfulness and self-compassion, is the key to gaining control over your issues. I support you to relate to all aspects of your life in proactive and beneficial ways. Becoming your own best friend may be the most important step in moving on with your life with more ease, skill, clarity and positive motivation.

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.

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.

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.

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.
