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.

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.

Psychotherapy is a great tool to help you understand yourself better. Everybody can benefit from the self-knowledge that psychotherapy brings. With insight, understanding and humor you can live the life you want without the stumbling blocks the unexamined life brings. Psychotherapy can help you reveal the unconscious process that motivates and defines you. Self understanding is the key to making the good decisions that lead to a happy and fulfilled life.

I use many techniques and tools to help people grow, heal and evolve. I start with inner mindfulness as the basis for all my work. I have extensive training in Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy (AEDP). Also in Somatic Experiencing (SE) as well as some training in Hakomi. All three of these are styles of healing work that are experiential in nature. Recent studies show that what helps people heal more effectively is to have new, better experiences than you had in the past. So I help you have those experiences. This changes your brain patterns which changes how things affect you and how you respond. You end up feeling more at ease and confident as you move forward.

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.

Lawrence Tunis, Ed.D, LMFT

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

Early wounding in life is the key cause of the issues and problems we have in our present lives. I believe in exploring and experienceing our early painful and angry feelings to associate them with how we deal with our relationships, our jobs and/or the community. I believe that the strong feelings of anger and love we have or had for our parents are reflected in our current relationships. I also believe that the modeling of behavior in our early lives will be reflected in how we act today. If this has a negative bent to it, it can be readily repaired through the empathetic and reflective counseling that I provide..

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.

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.

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 Clinical Social Worker

Within driving distance of El Cerrito

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.

My approach is grounded in an existential-humanistic psychology tradition that is inspired by relational and psychodynamic therapeutic philosophies. What this essentially means is that I see my role as your therapist as one that tries to see you in a holistic way through dialogue so that you may better see yourself (your patterns, meaning behind your experience, etc.), and create the person that you want to become through a healthier mindset and future choices.
