I love Velina! She is so knowledgeable about the health industry, alternative medicine, supplements, and self care. Velina is resourceful, empathetic, talented, and a truly caring professional.
In a sea of overwhelming info about health and diets, Jenna Pacelli is the calming voice that helped me find what was right for my body. From my sugar addiction, to dairy allergy, skin issues, and stress, Jenna opened my eyes to the habits I had that were affecting my body and not allowing it to heal and move forward to my goals. The things she taught me ranged from how to make better choices in shopping, cooking, snacking, relationships, work, and calming activities. Every change felt natural and easy, however, because I was moving from following fads to following my intuition. And I felt so good which motivated me to want to do more! She supported and guided me the entire time we worked together and I still find motivation and inspiration through her newsletters and website. She also always makes herself available whenever I need an emergency tune-up. Jenna's knowledge of nutrition and the body is amazing, yet she is not intimidating and is very compassionate with my concerns and needs. I feel like having a life/nutritional coach these days is almost a must-have because the internet and "age of information" provides information overload. I find it very hard to know who to trust. And also as a yoga professional and single mother, I don't have time to sort through the research myself. Jenna Pacelli literally took all my health issues, came back to me with many solutions, specific to my body and lifestyle, and we created a plan that worked, and that I am still maintaining two years later. If you are looking for guidance in your life, for better physical or mental health, contact Jenna Pacelli! I promise you will be so glad you did!!
I have 'enjoyed' many years of individual, marital and group counseling with a variety of practitioners who offered me a range of treatment modalities and psychological perspectives. I am a clinical psychologist myself, and have accumulated untold hours engaged in intellectual sparring matches with my counsellors. This was perhaps gratifying to all, but it was not as helpful to me as I had hoped. Over the years, I continued to steamroll my way through each day, and used only two tools - anger and resentment - to fuel my efforts. I became increasingly exhausted and chronically ill and sought guidance from legions of experts from the world of allopathy. (I currently define allopathy as the Science of Deficiency. Specifically, after grueling inquiry, the underlying/overlaying/veiled/ or overt deficiency is brilliantly discovered in an "aha" moment (viz House episodes). In my experience, that deficiency usually resided within or on me or my significant other. Once identified, the deficiency receives allopathic attack with a decisive, elegantly simple, goal-oriented, targeted and, once again, brilliant treatment plan. The allopathic treatment plan is formulated around incrementally more difficult or painful or expensive activities that ultimately fix, extract, reprimand, retrain, restrain or medicate the deficiency toward its extinction. Sadly, despite the dazzling brilliance allopathy, my physical health continued to deteriorate and I was frequently hospitalized. I felt spiritually empty, worthy only of self-doubt and self-reproach, afraid, abandoned, distrustful of the universe and all its inhabitants and utterly victimized. What was wrong with me??? I failed the dazzling brilliance of allopathy. Perhaps my deficiency was not correctly identified? Or I didn't try hard enough to fix it? Or my deficiency is so deep that it is unfixable? In this swirling haze of suffering I somehow was led to Dr. Maggi Quinlan. I can't remember how. What is important is that I was somehow offered a remarkable gift in the form of Maggi Quinlan, I am deeply grateful to and for her. My body, spirit, senses, energy and relatedness and relationships to myself, family and world are healing and transforming under Maggi's guidance. But here's the thing: Maggi doesn't identify or diagnose or expunge or treat anything! Here's another mystery: my mind is coming along for the ride (not running the show) and I am noticing improvement in all parts of my life. I attribute this miracle to Maggi's gentle, loving and inspired wisdom, unwavering integrity, irreverant humor, Mother Earth hugs, willingness to appropriately self disclose, deep connection to Divine Spirit, unconditional love, and profound dedication to healing and teaching. Gratitude, joy, creativity, relaxation, loving appreciation of myself and others, quiet reflection, grace - these are still not entirely familiar sentiments for me. But they have begun to visit me. I am learning to recognize their presence and I sometimes remember to invite them to linger a while.
I have nothing but Rave reviews for A Fit Mind. I have been a client for almost a year now. I appreciate how Dr. Marsh (whom I affectionately call Rev.), took me on Pro-Bono when I didn't have any resources. She counted it not robbery to sow spiritual and mental health into my life, especially at the time of some life transitions. Not only that, she has been a weight loss coach, life coach, and at times my earthly peace of mind. I think that there are adequate opportunities for sessions, via Skype or Facetime. Rev., continues to make it affordable for me to heal and grow to reach my ultimate maximum in self. So every chance I get to give a plug for A Fit Mind I do. Rev., is very thorough, thought provoking, empowers you to make your own decisions, gives you homework and expects it to be done. I'm thankful for the Anointing that rest upon her life to help and heal the world one session at a time. I look forward to my weekly sessions, and with that being said I'm totally satisfied with my services.
I arrived in Michelles office after depression I had been try to deny since childhood finally caught up with me. I knew I needed help; other than that I was at a total loss. In my life, Ive typically been able to use my intellect, along with a propensity for rambling, to gloss over statements that actually reveal anything more than surface emotion even with other therapists I have seen. She has, in a way that is friendly but ultimately firm, broken me of that habit and kept me focused on the scary places in my head where we can make the most progress. The environment she creates is one that safe and productive. Michelle is exactly what one looks for in a great mental health professional: compassionate, thoughtful, articulate, and above all a fantastic listener. This has been one of the hardest things Ive ever done. Its also arguably the most rewarding. And there is no other person Id trust to help shepherd me through this journey.
I originally thought a Kettle Bell work would be something that would just help tune my body. I'm an old gym rat and always felt I knew how to train. What I've gained from Marty wasn't just strength and fitness it was a connection to understanding how my brain and body work together. Learning how to train through these workouts has helped me focus on me. Paying attention to the things in my life that should aid my fitness goals but also my mental and emotional ones as well. Fantastic workouts with great insight and often an education in how to take better care of yourself. What more could you ask from a trainer!
Erika is passionate about mental and physical health, is very positive and professional. She is a wonderful resource in the community.
The biggest benefit I get from Kip is knowing I have a scheduled, recurring time each week to work on my mental health. It's easy to get lost in the madness of the work week and avoid spending time on personal growth. Kip gives me something to anchor to no matter what's going on at work, I have my Kip appointment to look forward to and hold onto as a constant in my life. My productivity has definitely improved on the job; my mind is much more focused as I work on my mental health with my Kip therapist on a weekly basis. It's the mental equivalent of going to the gym on a routine basis; it feels good doing that for myself, and that positivity comes through in my work.
Grace is an esteemed colleague of mine. I have had the pleasure of witnessing her dedication, compassion, and commitment to her clients over many years. I am so impressed with Grace's ability to connect with clients, provide validation, and offer support to help engender real change in her clients' lives. Grace has a way of building trust and rapport with clients that helps them to feel safe with her. She brings her whole self to the work, and is able to be honest and transparent. Grace's experience of working with individuals with a variety of presenting difficulties and assigned diagnoses help her to challenge and combat the stigma that so often accompanies people's mental health struggles.
Raina is an excellent therapist who I turn to often for consultation around all issues related to psychotherapy. I especially appreciate her ability to hold the complexity of societal issues within the context of a warm and professional relationship. She is a smart, strong therapist and is invaluable to the Bay Area mental health community. I highly recommend her.
I worked with Dr. Uhlin in a managed care setting for several years and had the opportunity to witness his skills as a clinician firsthand. Dr. Uhlin is compassionate, bright, and cares a great deal about his clients. He is a deep thinker who translates his expertise and wisdom into practical and effective interventions. I highly recommend Dr. Uhlin for anyone seeking psychotherapy. Gregory Devore, Ph.D., Clinical Psychologist

Everybody has problems. They might be relationships, job stress, depression, anxiety, and mood swings. I posit every problem has a solution and that we can work together to find it. I have helped people for over 25 years. I am a board certified psychiatrist. I am empathic and non-judgemental. You and I will become partners in understanding which of these issues are uniquely yours, and how you have been dealing with them. We all use tools which may have worked with past problems, but in fact may be working against us now. We can replace these with successful ways of dealing with life! I am skilled in therapy - psychoanalytic, cognitive, interpersonal, behavioral, etc. I find that medication can be useful in treating symptoms during the therapeutic process. For all my patients, I advocate nutrition, exercise, and meditation. One of my many interests is workplace issues. I published a book, Climb A Fallen Ladder, to help you cope with job loss and job reinvention. In relation to this book, I appeared on CNBC, and KGO. I spoke at Barnes & Noble, and was interviewed in the SF Chronicle. To help you, I use everything I have!
