John Prosise, PhD, Psychologist in Berkeley
You'll tap your strengths and enjoy them. We'll marvel at how the brain creates one adaptive "I" after another (living side by side, now, in one healthy person). We'll respect how they've protected you, and relax outdated ones that cause you strain. . Events evoke them, making a subjective past, present again, for better or worse. Integrative therapy turns them into rich, compatible memory. . We can use the ways you're ready for change, so it feels natural. I see adults & elders delighted by fresh feeling & thinking, with relief from needless alarm and doubt.
I enjoyed communication at Stanford; architecture at UC Berkeley; hands-on housebuilding, here & in the mountains; a doctoral thesis on periictal experience; postdoctoral neuropsychology at California School of Professional Psychology. Each is pragmatic. All are with me, to help you feel seen in your different inner worlds--and find kin in a cobbled self.
We're exquisitely impressionable. We act from those impressions, even when they're out of touch with the promise of the present day. So mind & body get tired or fretful in everyday stress. Let's lift its spell, with relief that goes beyond good ideas, so life can win your confidence again!
