Any recommendations for a dog trainer in the Berkeley area? We just brought home a four-month-old puppy and would love some support training her. Thank you in advance for your help!

I highly recommend Kathy Kear with Cause and Effect Dog Training: https://www.yelp.com/biz/cause-and-effect-dog-training-berkeley-4
She helped us with our anxiety-ridden 10-year-old pitmix a few years ago. We've taken our dog to two other trainers over the years, and Kathy is by far the best.
Check out the Oakland Dog Training place, located on Jacuzzi (which T's into Central---on your way to Richmond Costco). My dog Queenie and I worked with Lynn in obedience training and with Albert in scent work. We tried other trainers but feel that ODT is best. Also look on youtube: for Zak's revolution training (very positive approach) I learned a lot from him. PLEASE stay away from Cesar Millan; his is a negative approach.
I’d like to recommend Alex at www.trainingwithalex.com. He has spent years working with all kinds of different animals and has developed a real expertise in animal training. He’s worked at zoos, aquariums and with rescue dogs. He is gentle, kind and knowledgeable. I think he would do an excellent job with your dog, he certainly did with mine! He’s very positive in his training methods. I highly recommend him.
