My clients seek my services when personal problems or relationship failures and disappointments drain the joy, fun and creativity from otherwise rewarding lives and careers. No one wants to remain stuck or feel sad, depressed or anxious for long. I offer a safe space where you'll feel heard, respected, and validated. Collaboratively, we will unpack the challenges you're facing and create insight around patterns that no longer serve you. Therapy can help to bring you to a new place of understanding, perspective, inspiration and purpose. My intention is to provide you with the tools to live a life that expresses your deepest values. In the face of distress, living from your values will enable you to lead a meaningful life and to be the person you want to be.

Madalina Coman Practice Description
Welcome! I’m so glad you are exploring options for support. It can feel intimidating reaching out for the first time, or finding a new therapist and I’d like to make it as comfortable as possible. Are you struggling with a transition, experiencing the loss of a loved one or a relationship, or perhaps have lost touch with your own sense of joy and vibrancy? Ready for a new beginning?During this time of Covid-19 crisis, our most vulnerable selves are exposed. Individuals with trauma histories may be feeling especially challenged. Couples might be struggling with increased mood swings, irritability, isolation, or lack of privacy. I am here to help you manage these feelings, come together, and find common ground. Though times of crisis may be very painful, they can also be an opportunity for great personal growth. Therapy can help. Hurtful expectations and habits can be retired, and new habits of relating to life and others can be implicitly learned, or chosen and implemented. In my practice, therapy is as diverse as my clients, following from their deepest and increasingly explicit goals, and their changing moods and preferences. The most important thing I can offer in therapy is to be an open-hearted and closely listening companion in a safe and compassionate space for rest and growth. Especially in these turbulent times, just having a trusted person who sees you clearly, and time spent focused on your own struggles and celebrating your progress, can be tremendously healing. It is an honor to sit with clients, hear their experience, and help them explore what they most value. I especially enjoy working with teens, adults, couples and groups and because no single approach is right for everyone, I have trained in and use a balanced blend of client-centered and empirically-based approaches to help you reach your goals. More specifically, my work is informed by the following therapeutic orientations: Psychodynamic, Humanistic, Cognitive-Behavioral (CBT), Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) for Couples, and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). What I've learned in my over 10 years of experience providing mental health support in the Bay Area (in English, Romanian & Spanish) in different settings & capacities (from volunteering on the National Suicide Line, in hospice & domestic violence shelters, to working in community mental health clinics) is that clients often fear that their problems will be overwhelming. Paradoxically, even when experiences are frustrating, grim or frightening for clients, sharing them in therapy is typically relieving, enlivening and even joyful. Alternatives then become possible. I know how hard it is to ask for help, so the fact that you are looking is brave. You deserve a life that is filled with joy and happiness, fulfilling work and relationships. I'd like to help. I have immediate openings for teletherapy and I offer weekend sessions to fit with your busy life. Why not start today? I offer a complimentary consultation where we discuss your concerns and you can see if I am a right fit for you and your journey.
