RADICALLY IMPROVE YOURSELF AND YOUR RELATIONSHIPS. Do you want to meet new people? Would you like a better relationship with your boss and coworkers for a better career? Do you want a deeper connection to your partner, child, or family? Do you want to feel that you deserve love, happiness, and success? Relationships determine everything in our lives, from who we date to where we work to what we do for fun. If your relationships are good, chances are your life is good. I help people have good relationships and good lives.
I help people overcome problems such as social anxiety, depression, or PTSD so they can be confident and authentic wherever they go. I help couples regain trust and intimacy to have enduring and rewarding relationships. I help kids recover from abuse so they can reconnect with families, existing or adopted.
I'm Matthew Lindgren, a marriage & family therapist in Oakland. I have offices downtown, near Grand Lake and accessible from BART and highways 580, 880, 980, and 24.
