Warm, Highly Experienced Therapist in Berkeley, CA

doorway-for-webAre you feeling caught up too often by your life or your emotions? Are you dealing with the difficult effects of anxiety, trauma, depression, self-judgement or a challenging relationship? Does this make you feel stuck? Having someone who really knows how to be on your side—especially when you’re not sure how to do that yourself—can make all the difference. With a relationship of mutual trust and understanding even habits and emotions as familiar to you as a pair of comfortable old shoes can be changed.

I can help you move beyond anxiety, self-judgment and hard transitions to find the confidence and real enjoyment that you want. I’ll offer my expertise to lift the negative effects of trauma or depression and get you back to being who you were before you became trapped in these.

I will give you warm, unshakable support so that you can look your limiting beliefs about yourself and your life squarely in the eye. With kindness and humor I’ll challenge you to see yourself differently, and give you a more real reflection of who you are, with your strengths and abilities. You’ll start to see a door opening in yourself that you never knew was there. As you look inside you’ll want to try out new ways of acting and being during our sessions, and then at home, to see what advantages they bring.

Lasting change is really possible. You can discover how to leave past pain in the past and come fully into the present. Through therapy you’ll find the courage and ability to live more confidently in each moment with all your strengths and abilities.

You don’t have to settle for less than you want in life. Therapy works, especially when there is a good fit between you and your therapist. This is why I offer a free 30-minute consultation. You can see whether we’re a good fit. You can reach me at 510-540-0813, ninashilling@msn.com, or you can fill out the simple form below. I’ll get back to you promptly.
