Cheryl Jacques, PsyD, Psychologist in Oakland
I offer psychoanalytic psychotherapy and psychoanalysis for individuals, teens and couples. I work collaboratively with you to develop a deeper understanding of yourself, resolve personal and interpersonal conflicts, and improve your mood and behavior in a private, respectful setting. I help you to heal from traumatic and abusive situations. My family work includes child therapy, families in transitions, parenting and child development, parent-teen dyads, divorce issues, and couples therapy.
Depression, anxiety and other symptoms are present across psychological conditions. Deciphering symptoms and experiences with a multilayered sympathetic appreciation of your life leads to better coping strategies and positive actions. Together we explore the impacts of childhood events, relationship history and your unique personality factors using the contributions of neuropsychology, attachment and psychoanalytic thinking.
I am a psychoanalyst certified by the International Psychoanalytic Association. My psychological assessment practice examines brain-behavior relationships, emotion regulation, thought patterns and physical causes and effects. My forensic work consists of court ordered psychological and child custody evaluations. I don't accept insurance for assessment or custody work.
