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.

Katherine Jewett, MA LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist #100342

No two people are exactly the same, so my approach to each client depends on her particular needs and goals. I take a top-down/bottom-up approach in that we work on how our minds control the body and how the body controls the mind, so that ultimately you have control over both. We will look at patterns that are working and patterns that aren't in terms of emotions, relationships, and behaviors. We figure out how those patterns originated so that we know how to eliminate what's not working and find new, more functional patterns. Science shows us that talk therapy isn't just talk. Therapy literally changes the wiring of your brain to give you more choice, functionality, and joy.

Psychotherapist

Barbara Pannoni, M.A., LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Castro Valley

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.

Psychotherapist

Dan Quinn, Psy.D.

Clinical Psychologist

Within driving distance of Castro Valley

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

Bryan Newman, MA, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Castro Valley

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.

Daniel Davis, M.A., LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Psychotherapy can be a great opportunity. I think the bravest and healthiest people are willing to submit themselves to the process of psychotherapy. Much good can come from it. When we suffer in silence, we are unable to see many things. Psychotherapy gives us a chance to examine ourselves in a new way. Moreover, modern psychotherapy can provide us with lasting change. The brain has neural-plasticity, meaning it can change. Our patterns may seem impossible to change. Yet change is possible. Call me at 408-249-0014 to begin changing your life. You are worth it!

Psychotherapist

John Snyder, Psy.D.

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

Within driving distance of Castro Valley

I help men and teens who are struggling with emotional pain, transform their lives. More than a decade's worth of focus on men's issues has taught me that men can experience and express emotion differently than women. In addition to my role as a psychotherapist, I am also Research Director at the San Francisco Psychotherapy Research Group, where I study the processes that lead to effective psychotherapy. My combined clinical and research background means that I am very aware of the most current and effective methods in psychotherapy, allowing me to utilize a warm, compassionate, and scientifically-informed approach to help my clients achieve the maximum benefits possible.

Psychotherapist

Judith Wyatt, MFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Castro Valley

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.

Psychotherapist

Jason Esswein, M.S., LMFT

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Castro Valley

Many clients have reported that their past therapists have just "sat there and listened" without offering any advice of value. While we all need a sounding board and time to tell our story, many clients are interested in their therapists' feedback. When and where appropriate, I am willing to offer my thoughts and experience to my clients. It is through building a healthy, authentic relationship with our therapists that enables us to use this as a model for our other significant relationships. Psychotherapy is the perfect place to begin (or continue) this process.

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.

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.

Psychotherapist

Mey Saephan, MS

Marriage and Family Therapist

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.
