Sylvia Khromina, Psy.D. PSY 29273

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

Within driving distance of Castro Valley

I believe that humans are naturally oriented towards growth, development, and inner fulfillment. If you are feeling stuck in one or several areas in your life, I am here to help. I specialize in helping people overcome relationship problems, manage stress and anxiety, relieve depression, effectively move through life transitions, identify life goals and develop a plan for carrying them out, improve self-esteem and self-concept, heal from painful or traumatic life experiences, and come to know and understand themselves more fully. My approach integrates several leading-edge techniques including mindfulness, relational work, emotion-focused therapy, and depth psychology.

Psychotherapist

Emily Lyon, PhD

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

Within driving distance of Castro Valley

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.

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

Marriage and Family Therapist

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

Mey Saephan, MS

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

Amelia Katkov, MA, MFTI

MFTI

Within driving distance of Castro Valley

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.

Holistic Psychotherapist

Within driving distance of Castro Valley

Life can be challenging. Sometimes we can find ourselves with overwhelming emotions, struggling in relationships and having difficulty in our daily functioning. Everybody has these moments, and everybody needs some help once in a while. This is where I come in. Whether you are struggling with anxiety, depression, relationship issues, life transitions, grief, past trauma or whatever, I can help. As a holistic psychotherapist, my main goal is to help you find meaning and purpose in your life. My intention is to be a guide in helping you find what it is that you've been seeking: love, joy, satisfaction, comfort, peace, an understanding of your purpose, etc.

Marriage and Family Therapist

One of the techniques I use in my practice is applying psychotherapy or psychoanalysis. Applying this theory, we will spend time trying to understand root of your problems. We will work on trying to heal the subconcious and unconscious wounds from your childhood. As well as work on trying to understand ourselves better and gain more insight into our actions.

Psychotherapist

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

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Castro Valley

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.

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

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

Jonathan Eli Herrick, jonathan herrick

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.
