Seeking a Psychologist
Archived Q&A and Reviews
For the many people who inquire about psychotherapists, I just wanted to let all of you know of a great resource, an information and referral search tool (an online directory) on the Alameda County Psychological Association's website:
You can select a psychologist by population served, areas of practice, office location, payment method, etc. The psychologists listed are all fully licensed by the Board of Psychology and are members of the California Psychological Association. Of course, you can also call for a referral at 510- 433-9580, but I find that many people like the convenience of an online directory. Good luck. M.K. March 2006
I just moved to this area from out-of-state and am seeking a female psychologist who specializes in the Jungian approach to therapy. I used to have a wonderful Jungian therapist at my previous home: caring, well-spoken, great in guidance counseling to help me resolve some old family conflicts. Now I should also add fertility counseling to the list as I had two tragic miscarriages this past year. If you know a great Jungian therapist in the Berkeley/Oakland area who meets this profile, please let me know. Thank you! Anon
Marilyn Steele is a wonderful, compassionate, wise, and experienced Jungian psychologist with a practice in Berkeley. You'll have to ask her about any experience with infertility. 510.540.0777.
I've been recommended to see Dr. Eugenie Hsu for psychotherapy by a friend who saw her in a group for social phobias and really liked her- does anyone have any experience working with her in one-on-one therapy? Thanks for any feedback. Anonymous
I'd recommend Dr. Eugenie Hsu for any adult going through a difficult time especially with depression, anxiety or trauma issues. I know she specializes in EMDR therapy for trauma survivors and is one of the best folks in the field. Overall, an excellent clinician--very personable, culturally-sensitive and efficient therapist. I think best way to contact her is through her website: http://www.dreugeniehsu.com

Hello, I would like to highly recommend Dr. Catharine Freemire in the Creekside office park in Walnut Creek. She is very easy to talk to, gives great feedback and also offers services in 'coaching' which might help you in dealing with your partner who is unwilling to join you in counseling. She can be reached at 939-4554 Karen
