About Us

We are three licensed therapists with over 25 years combined experience, and work out of two offices in Berkeley. We see clients Monday through Saturday, including 4 evenings, as well as phone and Skype/FaceTime sessions when requested.

We believe counseling with us is different. We are friendly, down-to-earth, and very open about the counseling process. You will leave our office feeling like a participant and in control of your therapy.

In fact, we provide Session Evaluation worksheets so that you can review the efficacy of your sessions, give us feedback, and make sure that together we are making the progress you hope for.

Together we have found that we can meet the needs of many communities in the Bay Area. Lindsey works mostly with individuals, including adults and students. Tsveta sees adults and students of all ages, including younger children and families. Karen specializes in couples. All of us are dedicated to finding solutions for our clients.

We chose to be Marriage and Family therapists (as opposed to clinical psychologists or social workers) because of the license’s excellent training in helping people with relationships and practical solutions, instead of focusing on diagnoses and psychological testing. The MFT license requires over 3,000 hours of experience and two licensing exams to be certified by the Board of Behavioral Sciences.
