Welcome! My name is Lorrie! Life can be challenging and complicated. Choosing a therapist doesn’t have to be. I believe that building a genuine, open, and honest therapeutic relationship with my client is the best way to connect. Together, we will work to explore areas of your life that are challenging to set you on a path of happiness, fulfillment, and purpose. Are you tired of relapsing?? Tired of struggling to stay sober?? My experience in the field of Substance Abuse allowed me the privilege of helping those struggling with addiction and mental health disorders as well as their families. I have worked in this field for the past sixteen years and it has given me a compassionate perspective for those struggling to get and stay sober. I am enthusiastic and passionate about helping you find unique and creative solutions to problems. Parents, would you like some peace in your home? Are you tired of the lying and manipulation? Need support dealing with a teen with addiction issues? I can help.

My name is Rena, and I also go by Ro (both names are great). I am a white queer non-binary Ashkenazi Jewish somatic therapist and artist. Prison abolition, harm reduction, and consent are important to me, and I strive to practice in ways that are honest and aligned with my values. A sense of humor is also essential to me in healing work, and I believe in making room to go deep as well as to have fun in therapy. I have experience working with folks who experience depression, self-harm, relationship issues, break-ups, trauma, and anxiety. I love working with millennials, young people, queers, and creatives. Right now, I am only seeing clients on Telehealth.

Hi! I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker based in the Bay Area and serving children and adults throughout California via telehealth. I have 10 years experience working with youth in the education setting and 4 years professional experience as a therapist. I’m excited to work with young women of color and non-binary people of color who are navigating adulthood and working on defining themselves. Maybe you are navigating stressors related to your love life, career, balancing personal and family responsibilities, and feeling overwhelmed, anxious or depressed. Together we may uncover underlying trauma or self-limiting beliefs, work on boundaries, explore and better understand your needs. Perhaps this is the first time that you are able to prioritize your mental health, which is a first step in investing and valuing YOU. Let’s go on this journey with the self-compassion and softness you deserve.

I believe that therapy can heal, but I also know that telling a stranger about your deepest pain can be a strange feeling. Perhaps you've been feeling sad, depressed or worried, and hopeless that anything in your life can change. Or maybe you aren't sure what you would even want help with. You know you feel bad, but if someone were to ask you "How can I help?", you aren't sure what you would say. These problems can feel permanent and unsolvable. After all, something feels broken and unfixable, so how could you not feel that it takes all the energy you have just to get up in the morning and go about your day? Depression or anxiety can also feel isolating, as if nobody else could possibly understand. You may have even received advice from people who you feel mean well but can't understand what you're going through. Depression and anxiety are not permanent or unfixable, and therapy can help. Imagine feeling peace of mind, and excited about life and its possibilities. It starts by learning about you and going at your pace. As a Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist with over 16 years experience working with adults and teens, I've seen therapy work, and I feel lucky that I get to be part of that journey for others.

Hello. I'm Robyn, If you are here, there's a good chance that you have been trying your best to navigate challenges that feel like too much. You may be feeling overwhelmed, hopeless, or out of sync with the life you want to live. You may be going through a life transition, have become more aware of past or present traumas impacting you now, or have faced a recent difficult experience, and are ready to begin your healing journey. I help empower teens and adults to overcome past adverse and traumatic experiences to live fulfilling and meaningful lives. Adversity and trauma may have led you to experience anxiety, depression, PTSD, low self-esteem, or relationship challenges, that negatively impact your daily life. But these symptoms do not define you. Rather they speak to the hardships and challenges you have faced. Allow me to offer you a safe space to process your story and learn new skills to begin your healing journey, release shame, build self-compassion, and live authentically YOU. I look forward to working together.

Hello, I am Amber, a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, a graduate from John F. Kennedy University where I studied Holistic Counseling Psychology, an experiential program that went beyond the traditional clinical nature of becoming a therapist, where I developed skills and enthusiasm needed to attune to the whole person and not just a list of symptoms or diagnosis. My education and training amplifies the traditional therapeutic work by also incorporating expressive arts, play, nature and somatic interventions. Prior to having my private practice, I worked for county programs with those who have moderate to severe mental health issues, community based non-profits, residential treatment centers and in schools with children whose mental health impacts their ability to learn and have quality relationships with their peers and families.

Hi there, I’m Shanda. Does your child or teenager have a lot of “big feelings” leading to behaviors that are becoming difficult to understand or manage as a parent? Are you an adoptive or foster parent having trouble connecting with your child or teen? This can be a confusing and challenging role to fulfill. The same parenting rules do not apply to a "non-traditional" family system. If your biological, adopted, or foster child or teenager is struggling with depression, anxiety, anger, or ADHD, or has experienced a stressful life event such as bullying, relocation, grief/loss, or trauma and you’re not sure how to help as a parent, I am here to listen to your family’s needs and guide you toward hope, healing, and positive change. I empower parents and caregivers to support their children and families to overcome life’s challenges that can result in those “big feelings”. As a California Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and a Registered Play Therapist, I love blending play and art therapy, mindfulness, and conversation to get to the root of your and/or your child’s struggles. In our sessions together, I'll provide a safe, non-judgmental space and utilize evidence-based techniques so you and your family can overcome life’s challenges and connect on a deeper level. I’d love to meet you and work together!

Hi, I'm Celeste! I am passionate about helping people live a happier life- whether that means learning how to better manage anxiety, working through traumas, or developing a kinder inner monologue. I believe in order to make any changes, we must first understand how we got here. That is why I place a big emphasis on insight and help you understand how you got where you are, why it makes sense, and how we can change it. I love mixing and matching approaches to best suit your individual needs. I often use psychodynamic theory, which looks at the subconscious and Cognitive Behavioral Theory, which looks at the interaction between thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. I also focus on somatics, or the body. In our work together we will explore the signals your body is sending you and how to regulate them. I believe the most important thing in our time together is that you feel heard, seen, and supported. I view it as an honor to guide a client back to themselves and assist in building a more fulfilling and enjoyable life!
