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!

I provide brief solutions-focused psychotherapy to help clients assess personal and professional functioning, clarify goals, and strengthen social and emotional skills. I specialize in brief online relationship counseling. Online counseling allows clients to seek help as needed, engage in therapy at a schedule that's convenient to them, and keep their counselor as they progress through life. I work with LGBTQ and hetero clients on individual, couple, and alternative relationship concerns. Clients explore issues that impact their professional and personal relationships, including communication, power dynamics, and intimacy. I accept US$ and cryptocurrencies.

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.

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.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

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.

I have been working as a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist for the last 17 years. I began my training as a psychotherapy intern while working at the AIDS Health Project of UCSF in San Francisco. I learned Brief Therapy techniques but also now provide long term psychotherapy for people wanting to do longer term work. I believe people enter psychotherapy for different reasons-sometimes to lower distressful symptoms they are experiencing. Other people want to examine issues from childhood that may have recently surfaced. Some are dealing with relationship issues. And still others want to gain a sense of awareness and insight- I have so often heard "I want to know myself better."

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.

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.

Amelia Katkov, MA, MFTI

MFTI

Within driving distance of Pacifica

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

Emily Lyon, PhD

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

I see psychotherapy as a process of reflecting on the difficulties in your life in the context of a gradually developing relationship of safety and trust with an understanding therapist. In this relationship you can begin to open up issues and feelings that may have felt too difficult to explore on your own. An experienced therapist will help you to gain new insights on your life, perhaps pointing to areas where growth can occur. Issues that are painful can be addressed as you are ready and can often be resolved by exploring all the complex factors involved. Good psychotherapy will give you a deeper understanding and appreciation of yourself, and the freedom to make new choices.

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

With compassion, I provide a safe and peaceful place to heal. I help my clients recognize their true potential while helping them overcome their emotional difficulties. I use Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, which has a strong basis in science, to overcome depression, anxiety, and a wide range of challenges. Recognizing that past trauma can often create roadblocks to achieving one's greatest potential, I chose to get trained n Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR). This method has allowed me to help expedite the healing process from past traumas and deep emotional wounds that once caused them to feel stuck and helpless.
