Coach/Change Agent/Consultant

James Hillman once said, "We've had a hundred years of psychotherapy and the world is getting worse." While there are many occasions where the validation and listening endemic to psychotherapy makes sense, there are times where we over assume that "feeling better" and "changing behavior" are the same. Grey Matters International, Inc. goes after the forgotten brain laws to behavior change that therapists miss when processing hours and hours of dialogues with people. Utilizing a cutting edge technology to facilitate the emotional process of change, we can make the therapy process way more effective, faster, and with less money spent.

Chloe Lankshear, M.Ed, Ed.S, MFTI

Marriage & Family Therapist Registered Intern

Within driving distance of Foster City

If you are feeling overwhelmed and are experiencing anxiety, depression, parenting issues or relationship problems, individual psychotherapy can help you by offering a safe place just for you, so you can take a step back from your life, make sense of things, get some clarity, gain coping skills and a different perspective. My approach is to listen to you and treat you as the expert on your own life. I will try to reflect back what I'm hearing, make observations, point out patterns and help you to gain clarity so you can make decisions and take steps that work for you and fit with your priorities and values.

Psychotherapist

Jason Esswein, M.S., LMFT

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Foster City

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.

John Snyder, Psy.D.

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

Within driving distance of Foster City

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

Mey Saephan, MS

Marriage and Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Foster City

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.

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

Dietmar Brinkmann, MA, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Foster City

Psychotherapy is a unique opportunity to discover the real obstacles to your progress towards a life and the relationships you want. My active, engaging, and goal-oriented style of therapy is focused on what is happening for you right now. We may also dip into the past and consider the future when it is helpful to you. But exploring your present-moment experience, with mindfulness and self-compassion, is the key to gaining control over your issues. I support you to relate to all aspects of your life in proactive and beneficial ways. Becoming your own best friend may be the most important step in moving on with your life with more ease, skill, clarity and positive motivation.

Licensed Marriage Family Therapist

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

Alex Hoeplinger Patten, M.A., LMFT

LMFT 98700

Within driving distance of Foster City

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.

I'm a licensed psychotherapist in San Francisco focused on helping young to middle aged professionals get the most from their personal and professional lives. If you're looking for a therapist, I imagine that on some level you are in distress. Our work can focus on solving immediate issues while undertaking the deeper process of addressing underlying causes so that unwanted patterns don't repeat.

Psychotherapist

Rae Mountz, MA

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Foster City

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.   

Psychotherapist

Barbara Pannoni, M.A., LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Foster City

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.
