Debi continues to be a tremendous gift to me in my life. Every time she works with me, I bask in her spirits light. She helps me re-center myself to get back on track with life as adventure and play, rather than the myth of life as drudgery, which I tended to slip into without even being aware that I was doing so. As the mother of three spirited children, now young adults, Debi has been instrumental in my keeping the faith, especially during that long, dark adolescent corridor. Debi brought me back to my inner knowingness of my childrens beauty, and worked with me to restore the damage to those relationships that resulted from what amounted to a very difficult passage from infancy to adulthood for all three of my offspring. She listens with her mind and her heart simultaneously, taking it all in, and guides me with her extraordinary intuition and compassion. With her guidance, I am able to sort out my feelings, and gain clarity in the situation at hand. She assists me in developing and implementing action plans that move me forward to where I want to be in my individual life goals and in my cherished relationships. I am so grateful to Debi for being there for me, through it all, and comforted to know that will always be the case, as I march forward to the life dreams still ahead for me. Debi has helped me bring the fun back into the journey. When I embrace her teachings that life is our playground, my life lights up; the synchronicities start flowing again, and all is well, as it is meant to be, for all of us. Sally, San Francisco
Jimena is very professional and knowledgeable. I found her advice extremely helpful to better understand ways in how to improve my relationship. I'm glad I decided to seek her professional help and will continue to do so
Dania March is in your corner. She uses her extensive therapeutic training to help you find and sustain your motivation to create lasting changes and transform your life. She sees the emotional underpinnings that can create barriers to progress, as well as the passions that can fuel progress. She connects the dots in real time and asks the right questions to help you see your patterns for yourself. And she does it all while helping you optimize your closet. It's incredibly powerful to talk and do at the same time, and uncover in the moment the habitual thoughts that kept you from doing in the first place. Dania is clear and compassionate, and she's a deeply skilled coach.
Shannon Avana is the most competent and efficient therapist I've ever had the pleasure to work with. She's passionate, compassionate, competent. She listens to you, not with jaded tiredness, but with an intense interest that brings out things from you that you didn't even know you kept, all the while keeping you on track with a methodic, systematic approach.
I've been a colleague of Alexis' for several years. She's a knowledgeable and skilled therapist. I know you'll find her warm, gentle, empathetic and insightful.
Andri supported me during a very difficult time in my life while I was going through divorce and major career change. We had sessions over the course of a year. During that time she helped me: - emotionally go through the divorce and release guilt, shame, anger and lots of other emotoins that were blocking my mind and ability to feel joy - see that I had the right to dream a better life for me and my 2 boys and I was not "crazy" for asking more from life - understand the human basic needs which go so much beyond human survival. This brought peace in me and my relationship with my boys. The most important part was that I understood their need for love and certainty and how I can provide that to them even though I see them a few days per month - make better decisions for my company. I used to take most things emotionally and sometimes my decisions were not serving everyone. Now I use emotions and instincts to set a path, and use logic to decide on the steps. I now experience less stress and make less "mistakes" - understand why I need to value myself first and how this allows me to be strong for others I can go and on. In a nutshell, she helped me shift my perspective about dreams and passions and what is possible to achieve in life. Nothing can really hold you back. It is about the clarity you have and the decisions you make.
Tony was awesome! A massage therapist who works for us could not make an appointment. So I was frantically searching for someone to cover. Tony was able to take the appointment within the hour and was professional and skilled during the massage. He received the best rating!
Diana is an incredibly warm, empathic, playful, and nonjudgmental therapist. She really accepts you as you are and whole heartedly wants to make changes with you. I am always impressed by her ability to make sense of things and reflect it back to me in an alternative way. She has opened my eyes to so many patterns and defenses I have, and has done it in a way that felt kind and safe. I would really recommend her to anyone I know.
Mara Dubey is as good a therapist as you can find. She is truly skilled at building relationships with her clients that foster deep understanding and positive change. If you decide to go with her services, you can rest assure that you'll be in caring, competent hands.
Seb, was the best therapist I've ever had. For many reason but mainly because he is above all incredibly human and can so deeply relate to your pain. He Is incredibly intelligent and warm and flawed like all of us, and his capacity to sympathies is great and makes him such a wonderful guide to understanding ourselves and each other.
I was actually getting pretty frustrated with finding a therapist when I came across Sadie's offer to match with therapists in the Bay area. The fact I could try each of them and that it was a free process made it so much easier (not too mention cheaper). I would normally not review but this was a really good experience so I wanted to say thank you again!
Grace Pacheco is an amazing therapist. My partner and I had been rather "stuck" for nearly six months. We were not unhappy, but we were not happy either. Through her premarital survey, my partner and I were able to see more clearly areas that could benefit from growth but also areas in which we excelled. She gave us affirmation that we needed to keep feeling like our choice to be together was a positive decision and also gave us hope; hope that with minor changes (mostly broadening our empathy and understanding for one another) we had the potential to be in an even better place than before. Because of Grace's excellent help, both my partner and I gained the confidence to share feelings we had been hesitant to share for the six years we have been together because Grace showed us that it was not about sparing each other's feelings. She helped us realize that by remaining silent, the feelings would only muster up resentment and multiply to larger issues. Grace aided us in highlighting our strengths to explain how and why it is we've gotten so far in our relationship. In summary, Grace is an amazing,honest, and energetic therapist. She does not pretend to be beyond her expertise and always told us if she felt something was beyond her scope. She treated us with dignity, respect, and positive worth. We were not just "clients", we were really people with legitimate obstacles. My favorite characteristic about Grace..... She's validating. She did not feed us the "things could be worse" line. She highlighted that everyone has different lows, but that does not take away from it being YOUR low. She made us feel important and individual. I will forever value her for how I was treated and how she helped me with my partner. Amazing Grace, thank you.
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.
Robert is an excellent therapist. He is always professional and dependable. I will most definitely use his services again. I found him extremely helpful.
I have worked with Don Waxman for almost two years and found him to be the most effective therapist I have used. Don has the ability to be empathetic and directive in a way that works for me. His use of somatic tools with me has be dramatic in my self exploration and healing. He is very knowledgeable and creative and has great set of tools to help you get to your goals.
I have known Srini for over eight years and continue to be inspired by him. He is an incredibly intelligent, generous, authentic, and compassionate person. As his client, you will feel supported, understood, and enlivened. He cares deeply about his clients and his work and develops strong connections with his clients. I imagine you will look forward to your weekly sessions with him, not only because he is a masterful therapist, but also because you will most likely have fun doing it.

I provide individual and couples psychotherapy with a primary theoretical orientation in gestalt therapy.

This therapy will help foster new, creative, non-harmful and compassionate approach to help you heal and find what you truly want in life. It will also help provide an emotional and physical foundation to face upheaval and life changes. I am an interactive therapist and will tell you what I think and feel in our sessions. We will share in practical, solution-oriented discussion and experimentation in a safe, non-judgmental environment.
I have a wide range of experience. One of the specialities I have is working with those who particularly seek to integrate their Christian faith with their therapy work.
I work with people who would like to improve their relationships, who may have issues with food or substance abuse, or want to get free from a painful past. In addition, I love working with young adults as they are setting about establishing themselves as separate, yet connected with their family of origin. Also, I enjoy working with therapy interns and beginning therapists. It's very gratifying for me to see them grow professionally. I service the Walnut Creek area.
I accept family court referrals and have expereince in that arena. Additionally, I accept Blue Shilld and United Healthcare Insurance
