You’re only one step away from transforming your life.
Hi, I’m Sara, a psychotherapist on the Oakland/Berkeley border in CA. I help people who yearn to be free from anxiety and depression, but feel crushed by a fear of judgment or rejection.
Maybe the fear comes from the ways that you've been criticized for your intensity or lack of feeling, your spirituality, your use of psychedelics or cannabis, or how you generally show up in the world. Maybe your choices, beliefs and identity go against the norm, and you need to know your therapist will “get” you.
You’ve been misunderstood too many times. You don’t need more judgment: you need a way out of this pain.
How do you know you’re in the right place?
On the outside, it looks like you have everything together; but on the inside, you feel broken.
Relationships make you anxious. People always seem to let you down.
You want to find a way to love yourself, but you’re suffocated by anxiety, shame, and depression.
You’re a man who has trouble feeling and expressing your emotions, and you want to find your own inner compass.
You’re looking for an "unconventional" therapist: someone who understands your culture, lifestyle, choices of medicine, or spiritual practices.
Cannabis is your medicine of choice, and you want to find a way to manage your use or explore your experiences.
You want to sort though that huge pile of fear that gets in the way of connecting with yourself and other people.
Many of us suffer alone, but we don't have to.
Our conversations can help you:
gain perspective on your emotions, behaviors, and relationships (self-acceptance)
identify destructive beliefs, thoughts, and stories you tell yourself (paradigm-shift)
make choices that align with what will serve you best (agency)
discover inner allies and resources you never knew you had (self-reliance)
address pain, grieve losses, and find deeper meaning in your life
And then what happens?
