Sheila Addison, LMFT

Tera Beaber, Psy.D.
I provide compassionate psychotherapy to adults and couples, working collaboratively with my clients to help them identify the challenges in their lives and take active steps to achieve their goals. Often people seek out therapy because they are feeling stuck, anxious, depressed, and are seeking relief. I help clients find solutions to their problems in a caring and safe environment according to their individual needs. Some treatment modalities I commonly utilize are cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), mindfulness based, feminist, relational approaches, & EMDR. I serve a diverse range of clients and have specific interest in serving the LGBTQ community

Jonathan Burstein, LMFT
I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist with a private practice in Berkeley. I work with individual adults and couples, with a special focus on working with men who are ready to have more meaningful and intimate relationships with the other humans in their lives. I see clients from a wide range of backgrounds and life stages, including folks who identify as cultural outsiders, be they poly, queer, kinky, or simply people looking for a way to feel more belonging in the world. My approach to therapy is grounded in relational, psychodynamic thinking. This means I attend closely to how clients navigate the task of relating to others, paying attention to their past relationships, their present life, as well as the connection between us as it shows up in the therapy room. I also integrate techniques and approaches that draw from mindfulness practice, attachment theory, existential/humanist thinking, and cognitive behavioral therapy. I hold a BA in Literature from UC Berkeley and a MA in Counseling Psychology from JFK University.

Jeanne Courtney, LMFT
Jeanne especially enjoys helping: women of all sizes who wish they could love their bodies exactly as they are; codependents who wonder how to fit their own needs into family, work, or intimate relationships; people who need effective ways to cope with depression, panic attacks, or anxiety; and queer folks, activists, and progressive thinkers who want to change the world as well as their own lives. Providing therapy since 1986, she offers a variety of techniques (eg CBT, psychodynamic, relational), and believes clients can build on their unique strengths to make their lives more fulfilling and joyous. She brings patience and compassion to the ups and downs of that process, and helps her clients learn to do the same.

Carol Osmer, LCSW

Kimbo Prichard, LMFT
Clients come to therapy for many reasons, but often they feel powerless to change how they feel inside, in a specific situation or relationship. I have found that my relationship with a client, in conjunction with the client’s story and mind, invaluable in the process of change. I am a client-centered therapist with a straightforward, positive and solution-focused approach, which I apply to a client’s history with rigor and thoughtfulness. My goal as a therapist is to facilitate the resolution of trauma while validating a client’s experience. As I work to understand a client’s experience, I encourage rewrites and corrections, so the result is an accurate, respectful reading of the client’s mental and emotional experience. I am a certified EMDR therapist (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing). EMDR is a solution-focused therapy that works well with traumatic experiences, relationship issues, addiction, anxiety, depression and select compulsive behaviors. EMDR therapy identifies the emotional, physical and mental parts of unmanageable experiences, expands objectivity and decreases blame. In my experience, therapy is a temporary helper during a difficult time, with clear goals help to keep the therapy process moving toward the desired resolution.

Sheila Addison, LMFT

Naomi Azriel, LMFT
I work with individuals in the queer/LGBT community, people who are poly, in kinky/BDSM relationships and other sexual and social explorers. I have a long history supporting sex-workers and the sex-work community. Of the many theories I have learned and that have shaped me, I mostly draw from Jungian, psychoanalytic and relational traditions, as well as from self-psychology, social justice, feminist and somatic perspectives. My professional and volunteer career have brought me into some wonderful community organizations which have enriched and inspired my work. In my current work as a psychotherapist, I continue to uphold my commitment to the values of movements challenging the given structures of power, to peer support networks, to harm reduction and to maintaining deep respect for people traditionally marginalized. My community work focused on working towards healing and preventing sexual violence, on both individual and social levels, on supporting the empowerment and well being of sex workers, and on supporting women of varying class, social and cultural backgrounds in living empowered and meaningful lives.
