Maria Pilar Bratko, MA, MFT, Marriage & Family Therapist in Berkeley
Generally, what brings clients to my office are concerns related to work, relationships, and life. What I offer is depth psychotherapy for individuals and couples and welcome those from the Latino community. In individual therapy I will work with you to better understand your feelings and thoughts, find new ways for dealing with problems, and be more effective in recognizing and meeting your needs, desires, and aspirations. Couples often want to understand where their communication is not effective. In couple's therapy I will work with both of you to improve your relationship by strengthening communication skills. I don't work with domestic violence.
I provide bilingual (Spanish-English) psychotherapy from psychodynamic perspective in order to help you understand yourself on a deeper level. I specialize in a variety of issues including: depression, anxiety, life transitions, loss, trauma, childhood issues, and relationship difficulties.
I am committed to making psychotherapy available when possible and as such, invite a discussion related to fee and options for therapy.
