Evening and weekend appointments available. We’re located in Oakland, CA.

Heal what stands between you and living your life without the burden of depression, anxiety, or relationship problems. Credit cards accepted.

We can help you get there, and give you tools that will change the direction of the rest of your life.

We want to help you feel better and get your life on track, as effectively, and efficiently, as we can. The data is clear: therapy usually helps. The data is also clear about what makes therapy work, and what does not. We tackle client’s problems with warmth, down-to-earth practicality, active engagement and empirically-supported techniques that are shown to work in thousands of studies – and in our many decades of experience helping people get through rough patches, and get on with the lives they want to live.

Make the call so things can start getting better. 

Call us, tell us as much as you can, and we will speak frankly about how we can help with your unique situation. We are trained in therapy for a variety of issues, including:
