Psychotherapist

Emily Lyon, PhD

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

Within Driving Distance of East Palo Alto, CA

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.

Psychotherapist

Jayn Rajandran, LMFT, CGE, DTS, MA I/O Psychology

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of East Palo Alto, CA

I am a solution-based therapist; meaning I tend to be “strength-based” as opposed to “insight-oriented.” I work hard to identify your strengths in order to help you use these transferable skills in areas where you want to improve. When a client and I are able to tap into the right system to solve problems, the client’s constant efforts to right themselves will eventually work. We work hard as a team by believing that you can do this but just do not know how. I tend to work as a coach and a facilitator in moving you towards your goals by teaching you the tools and skills. Very often, when it is a life transition issue, you should be able to graduate, between 3-6 months.

Within Driving Distance of East Palo Alto, CA

In my practice I work with children, teens and their families to help them overcome what sometimes is debilitating emotional distress. Whether it's issues around ADHD, Adoption, Anxiety, Autism Spectrum Disorders, or Depression, I work with a number of modalities like art, play and sand play therapy to help the children communicate and learn about the emotions behind their behavior. In a place and time that is only for them, they learn to trust as they learn tools that will eventually help them lead happy and capable lives. I also work with children in groups and with individual adults.

Psychotherapist

Kevin Fleming Ph.D.

Coach/Change Agent/Consultant

Within Driving Distance of East Palo Alto, CA

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.

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

Jason Esswein, M.S., LMFT

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of East Palo Alto, CA

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.

Psychotherapist

Daniel Davis, M.A., LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of East Palo Alto, CA

Psychotherapy can be a great opportunity. I think the bravest and healthiest people are willing to submit themselves to the process of psychotherapy. Much good can come from it. When we suffer in silence, we are unable to see many things. Psychotherapy gives us a chance to examine ourselves in a new way. Moreover, modern psychotherapy can provide us with lasting change. The brain has neural-plasticity, meaning it can change. Our patterns may seem impossible to change. Yet change is possible. Call me at 408-249-0014 to begin changing your life. You are worth it!

LIcensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of East Palo Alto, CA

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.

Have you ever felt totally heard and understood and, through this process, come to know yourself better and more deeply? This is very much how the therapy process works with me. I attend to you--listen deeply--and reflect my understanding of you so you can feel known and less alone. For many of my clients, they are surprised and often relieved when they come to know themselves at this level and it can provide both direction and healing for them.

Psychotherapist

Robin Bates-Pualuan, MS, LMFT, LPCC

Marriage & Family Therapist, Professional Clinical Counselor

Within Driving Distance of East Palo Alto, CA

In psychotherapy, the therapist and the client build a unique relationship. Like most positive relationships, it is centered on caring and trust. Unlike other relationships, this one exists solely to meet the needs of the client. It can be very helpful to talk with friends and family when you’re struggling, but friends and family have a vested interest in the outcome of your struggles. They are familiar with who you are, so it is usually uncomfortable for them if you change, even when the change is positive and needed. As an unbiased professional, your therapist focuses on what is best for you, whether it is making big changes, small changes, or no changes.

Psychotherapist

Randi Fredricks, Ph.D., LMFT

Licensed Marriage Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of East Palo Alto, CA

Psychotherapy is a practice that dates back to prehistory. It is a special relationship and pattern of human experience that started when humans began living together in close communities and sought healing and counseling from particular members of the community. Out of respect for the ancient roots of my profession, I combine the wisdom of ancient healing practices with modern modes of psychotherapy. These methods have been used for thousands of years and have recently been proven to work studies in both medicine and psychology.

I've talked to countless individuals who question whether or not therapy works. They leave my office relaxed, sometimes laughing, most importantly hopeful. I am fascinated by the growth that happens when people feel safe and not judged. I invite you to be yourself. Only when we accept who we are, are we open to change. My approach is first of all nonjudgmental.

Dr. Rob Grellman

Psychotherapy can be life changing, and yet it can mean many different things to many different people. It is important to get clear on Expectations, Goals, and Needs as again these can vary for individuals. Psychotherapy can help reveal how you think and feel about yourself, your relationships, and how you manage day to day responsibilities. The more Awareness you gain the more potential you have to have a healthier experience of yourself and relationships.

Psychotherapist

Verna Nelson, MA, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of East Palo Alto, CA

Psychotherapy provides a safe place for you to learn about yourself with another person who isn't related to you and who you don't have to protect from your fears, secrets or uncertainties. Some people use this time to work out problems from their childhood and to see how that may be effecting their lives and relationships today. Others focus on what they want to create for life now and in the future. We can work together to help you learn better skills to cope with uncertainty, striving, change, and success, or failure. I can be a sounding board for you to practice your communication skills in session and a witness and coach as you create new direction and focus for your life.

Are you noticing the same patterns or cycles with yourself or with relationships that leave you feeling sad, angry, worried, depressed, or hurt?

Psychotherapist

Neal Winblad, MFT

Marriage, Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of East Palo Alto, CA

I love doing psychotherapy with individuals. It is an exploration of who you are, your stengths, where to you get stuck? Many issues you may be struggling with just vanish with a new understanding of your life and your body's responses to stress and trauma. Sometimes, specific tools and skills need to be learned and practiced. Safety and confidetiality are the first requirements in working well together. Next comes attunement. Have you ever felt like someone really really gets you? That is what good therapy does. Being really understood by someone makes us feel better about ourselves and removes our shame, allowing us to connect with others and enjoy our life rather than be burdened by it.

Psychotherapist

Mey Saephan, MS

Marriage and Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of East Palo Alto, CA

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.

Marriage & Family Therapist Registered Intern

Within Driving Distance of East Palo Alto, CA

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.

Kristina Schasker, M.A., MFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of East Palo Alto, CA

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.

Psychotherapist

Maren Gleason, LCSW

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

Within Driving Distance of East Palo Alto, CA

I help clients find strengths and ways to manage difficult or challenging situations. I also help clients with histories of trauma and abuse come to terms with difficult memories, turning ghosts into ancestors. Ghosts scare us. Ancestors we remember, but they don't have the power to terrify us. Life provides many challenges that anyone can struggle with, whether it is a traumatic experience or a life long struggle to overcome anxieties, worries and depression. We all live in relationships and can learn so much about our strengths, challenges and possibilities. I would be happy to help you with understanding your relationships from a positive and strength based perspective.
