Lisa A Kully, MA, MFT, Marriage & Family Therapist in Oakland
Your whole self is welcome! Are you craving a place to be supported and guided safely toward positive change, without judgment or pressure? A space in which you can feel more ease and connection as an individual or couple? Perhaps you have lost touch with your healthiest, confident self due to anxiety, depression, stuckness, relationship dissatisfaction, stress, or personal and societal trauma. As a couple, your relationship may feel dead or fraught with conflict. I bring sincere caring, presence, warmth, humor and intellect, as well as a range of skills and tools to this collaborative, sacred journey of psychotherapy.
My approach to therapy is integrative and responsive to your unique needs and valued feedback. Many individuals and couples seek me out for my skill and experience in two respected, effective methods: Hakomi Therapy, a somatic, mindfulness-based approach, and Emotionally-Focused Couples Therapy, an attachment-based approach.
I enjoy the diversity of those I sit with including: race/ethnicity, sexual orientation, family structure, spirituality/religion, age, lifestyle... I also appreciate working with meditators, artists, LGBTQ individuals and couples, parents (including those with special needs children), children of divorce, and sexuality issues. 20+ years of clinical experience.
