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.

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 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.

I help adults finally become who they were meant to be, rather than who they needed to be as children to fit in, feel loved or to cope with overwhelming situations or traumas. The residue of confusing, and self-alienating, childhood beliefs such as: I’m unlovable; unworthy; incompetent; unsafe or I can’t get my needs met, can interfere and sabotage a fulfilling life. It can cause depression, anxiety, poor relationships and addictions. In working together we can gently, and collaboratively, discover and amplify an authentic sense of self-knowledge, confidence and empowerment. We transform old patterns and traumas so they lose their power. We clear a path for more harmony and fulfillment

Life comes without a guide. Therapy is about finding it. Life is beautiful, hard, messy, and confusing. It contains polar opposites and sometimes at the very same moment. Therapy is about pausing, reflecting, and engaging in the process of your life. I offer my clients the chance to make sense of their past, to experience their present, and dictate their future. My hope and belief is that the life you want is out there. Allow me to help you in living it.

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.

From the minute you walk in the room, I will be collaborating with you to help you feel better and find ways to solve your problems. Whatever happened to you in the past or present time that has put you in the stuck state you are now in, therapy can help you to see why your situation is not hopeless. Change is always possible, if you are willing to work for it. Most people start psychotherapy at the point where they, their friends and their families can no longer provide the answers they need. I will listen to you and work with you to find solutions to the situations that are troubling you most. Feel free to contact me to see if we might be a good match for working together

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!

In general this is my practice. I meet with you, I hear your inner workings and I gently guide you to your best health and wellness. Together we discover the parts of yourself that you would like to enhance and learn how how to live a life full of calm and resolve and growth. We encounter and say goodbye to other things that hung on that are no longer serving you.

Psychotherapy is a collaborative process, in which one can feel safe to disclose their most intimate thoughts without being judged. My approach is to be open, honest, empathic, and realistic. We work together to decide what works best for you. In addition, the therapeutic relationship is one that should invoke change and growth from the very first session. Starting with the initial appointment, you should feel relief.

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

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.
