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.

Somatic Psychotherapist

Have you been feeling overwhelmed, anxious, unmotivated, easily triggered, or a lack of vitality? If you're reading this you may desire relief from these or other symptoms. The good news is that each one of us has an innate capacity for growth, integration, and healing. I offer empathic, nonjudgmental and non-pathologizing support and guidance. Together we can awaken resources needed and develop new ones as wounds and defenses loosen their grip, symptoms are alleviated, and you begin to feel more ease and joy in your daily life.

Psychotherapist

Stephen Sperber, Ph.D, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Castro Valley

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.

Psychotherapist

Rae Mountz, MA

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Castro Valley

My technique is based in psychodynamic relational-cultural psychotherapy. This means that I hold our relationship, the unconscious process between us, and your personal--experiences, identities, struggles, successes and strengths--in the context of your social-culutral-familiar locations in society. I pay close attention to your unconscious process (the part of your mind you are not aware of but that is affecting your emotions and behaviors) to better understand what your needing to express, feel and work through, in order for healing to take place inside of you and between us.

Jeff Cohen, MA, MFT

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

Alice Locke-Chezar, MFT, ATR

Marriage & Family Therapist, Registered Art Therapist

Within driving distance of Castro Valley

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.

Licensed Marriage Family Therapist

We are all born with the capacity for joy and love, but sometimes, as adults, we forget the wondrous sense of possibility or dreams we once had for our lives. Psychotherapy can help you reconnect with yourself and your hopes and aspirations for your life. It can also help you: (1) Develop more awareness about your needs (2) Express yourself more openly and authentically (3) Understand the ways your childhood impacts your experience of yourself as an adult (4) Cope with circumstances such as loss, illness, disability, anxiety, depression, parenting, marriage, aging, care-giving or conflicts in the workplace. If you would like to discuss your needs, please call me at 415-533-9724.

Psychotherapist

Sara Denman, Psy.D.

Dr. Sara Denman

Within driving distance of Castro Valley

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

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.

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.
