“Starting therapy can often bring up many feelings; excitement, fear, hope, defeat...and taking those first steps to find a good fit between you and your therapist is an important part of the process. We will work together to explore what feels comfortable and how to create a safe space. In addition to my private psychotherapy practice I have provided therapy to individuals and families in various community based, non-profit agencies. I earned my Masters in Clinical Social Work from New York University. Feel free to contact me at 510-516-6332 or email:

Verified by Psychology Today
Marriage & Family Therapist, MA, MFT
“Of course you are feeling lonely. Loneliness is now considered an epidemic. It can make you feel more affected by your loved one's behaviors. But focusing on other people can become a problem when it stunts personal growth and life gets out of balance. Do you find yourself: Repeatedly in unhealthy relationships? Excelling at "helping" others reach goals but feeling lost when it comes to your own? Feeling stuck, especially if you are alone or experiencing difficulty in a personal relationship? Struggling with self-esteem? Feelings of guilt? Acknowledgement of your successes or praise? You can stop blaming yourself...

“I have a great deal of experience working with grief, loss and people who feel isolated or going through a great deal of change. Many people feel this way from children who are having trouble with school to an adult with a disability. Grief and loss can be about many things.It doesn't have to be about the death of a loved one. It could also mean the loss of an enjoying part of life. I have no ideal client. I will work with anyone of any age who wants to work and feel better.

Stephen Kusch, Psychologist  in Oakland
“Do you ever find that the more you try to get rid of painful emotions, the more overwhelmed you feel? Life can sometimes feel like a straw finger puzzle: the more you pull, the tighter the grip. This is partly because life is challenging. It is also because in times of stress, we are wired to protect ourselves by focusing on potential dangers. Although adaptive for some situations, this wiring can become a closed feedback loop: the harder you try, the more you see only problems; and the more problems you see, the more you lose sight of the strengths and resources that facilitate change.

Nancy Levine-jordano, Clinical Social Work/Therapist  in Oakland
Verified by Psychology Today
Clinical Social Work/Therapist, LCSW
“I believe most people seek therapy as a road to change: lessening sadness, loneliness, anxiety, guilt, shame; changing relationships; making life transitions. I have devoted many years of training and practice to better help my patients understand their unconscious obstacles to desired change. For some patients change means learning to confront pain from chronic conditions like anxiety, depression, bi-polar or attention deficit disorders, For others, change entails finding their authentic voice in relationships or facing difficult realities. I enjoy developing a close, working relationship with my patients to create new capacities within themselves, hopefully perceiving new choices in their lives.

Verified by Psychology Today
Marriage & Family Therapist, MA, LMFT
“I am no stranger to hard work. Yet I have seen what the bravery and time put in does, it actually does change things. There is nothing more motivating that knowing first hand that healing does happen. Whether it's being in years of couples counseling and finally reaching that pinnacle in your marriage of love and trust- building and simultaneous growth (so awesome!) or taking the time for yourself to refine and build the foundation to a clear, true, authentic, strong self- it's all worth the risk to then find yourself in your best life.

Jay Joseph, Psychologist  in Oakland
“I enjoy being a psychotherapist because it provides me the opportunity to help people resolve the issues that are causing them distress. I work with adults, children, and families, and understand that each person is a unique individual with his or her unique life circumstances, history, and social and cultural context. A goal of our work together will be to help you identify and understand the conflicts that may be causing you difficulty, and to help you overcome them. Or perhaps negative thinking patterns cause you to experience sadness, loneliness, hopelessness, fear, or other unwanted emotions.

Sheila Hogan Longerbeam, Marriage & Family Therapist  in Oakland
“One of the first questions we ask when things go wrong is, "Why is this happening?" It is also an inquiry into, "Who am I?" In my work, I am focused on helping you use the current difficulty to know yourself, know your options and be able to face it with resilience. Starting therapy may challenge your tendency to handle things on your own. Is self-reliance serving you now, or keeping you stuck in repetitive cycles? I treat this potent time with respect, paying attention to your unique situation.

Ortal Kirson-Trilling, Psychologist  in Oakland
“We may know our histories and present struggles and wonder how talking to a therapist could help. It's not as if we can change the past. We may wonder what a therapist can do to help us out of our current emotional pain/ distress. If you've had a difficult past with a lot of pain, it would be particularly scary to imagine diving into those waters.
