Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

In 94596 - Nearby to El Cerrito.

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.

Licensed psychotherapist

In 94590 - Nearby to El Cerrito.

My psychotherapy is a relational, bodily and experiential process that aims to bring more life and renewed energy to places that have been broken, wounded or suppressed. Together, we form a close , collaborative bond in which we co-create pathways toward healing and growth. I use the whole body as a tool for awareness and resourcing- and help you learn how to access the inner wisdom of your body. In addition to sitting, talking and listening, I offer other possibilities for processing in sessions- standing, moving, awareness of gestures, posture and inviting forms of expression and dramatization so that we can directly experience ourselves in new ways.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

In 94583 - Nearby to El Cerrito.

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.

Regardless of therapeutic technique, the most important part of psychotherapy is the relationship between client and therapist. Therapy is best when it is collaborative. In my work, I support, and sometimes challenge, you to dig deep, to examine what is working for you, and the ways you are not in alignment with your own vision of health. There are good reasons each of us has come to behave as we do. Even if some of our behaviors or beliefs no longer serve us, or even harm us, it is important that we understand how we came to use certain strategies in order to let them go and choose new ways of being in the world.

Jay Reid, LPCC

Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor

In 94104 - Nearby to El Cerrito.

I offer psychotherapy for people who have a specific issue they want to address or if there is no clear-cut understanding of the problem but life doesn't feel quite right. I collaborate with my clients to understand what they most would like their lives to feel like. Next, we identify the past and current experiences that may be interfering with living this kind of life. Most importantly we identify the constricting beliefs developed from these experiences and empower them to question these assumptions. Over time, they are able to adopt newer - more self-enhancing - beliefs about life and the world so that a satisfying and meaningful life becomes their reality.

MFTI

In 94123 - Nearby to El Cerrito.

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

In 94501 - Nearby to El Cerrito.

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.

My style of psychotherapy is to help clients increase their Emotional Intelligence, which means developing greater self awareness and ability to manage one's own feelings and reactions. I combine Gestalt Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Body Awareness Practices, Family Systems, (EMDR) for trauma, and Mindfulness Practices. When people can have greater intimacy with themselves, they can have greater intimacy with others.

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.

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!
