Psychotherapist

Amelia Katkov, MA, MFTI

MFTI

Within driving distance of 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.

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.

The best therapists are genuine, compassionate and insightful. As I listen, interact and guide, these are the values I hold most highly. I take an empathic, common-sense approach to exploring relationships with family, work and community. Trust, respect, and mutual understanding are hallmarks of a successful therapy relationship, allowing lasting change with safety and support. The goals: to challenge self-defeating patterns, deepen self-understanding, and participate in relationships with integrity, courage and an open heart. I work exclusively with adults and couples, using research-based methods to improve relationship skills and self confidence. Visit KinseyLeaseCounseling.com.

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!

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.

Simply taking the time to observe thoughts and emotions is often enough to create a radical shift. Research shows that mindfulness interventions are particularly good at treating depression. I'm happy to offer these interventions to adults and children in my Oakland practice. http://matthewlindgren.com/Oakland-therapist-techniques/therapy-mindfulness.html

Bryan Newman, MA, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within driving distance of El Cerrito

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.

Psychotherapist

Jonathan Eli Herrick, jonathan herrick

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.

Licensed Psychologist

Psychotherapy can be boiled down to this statement: "You talk. I listen." Obviously it is more involved than that, but this over-simplification underscores the main roles of the two participants in the "talking cure." Whether you just need a safe, empathetic person to hear you share your thoughts and feelings, or you need someone to consult with to help you navigate life transitions, improve difficult relationships, or manage or eliminate upsetting symptoms, psychotherapy provides a unique opportunity for someone with special skills and training to help you grow and feel better in ways that friends and family usually cannot.

Psychotherapist

Jennifer Twardowski, MA, AMFT

Holistic Psychotherapist

Within driving distance of El Cerrito

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.

Glenn Fleisch, Ph.D., MFT

Licensed psychotherapist

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.

Psychotherapist

Mey Saephan, MS, LMFT

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.
