I am a compassion-oriented adult/couples therapist integrating research-backed tools, such as DBT, CBT, Mindfulness, and the Gottman Method.
Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Oakland, CA
Many individuals and couples come to counseling feeling unsure, scared, or nervous about what to expect from the therapy process. Many individuals feel confused about their own needs and boundaries, and overwhelmed by the thought of negotiating these needs with their partner.Practical communication and relationship skills can be helpful here.
