Marriage and Family Therapist, LMFT
 therapist: Zena Caputo,
In-Person in Oakland, CA
Online in California
Many folks I work with reach out because they're tired of being held back by patterns that aren't serving them. Whether you've felt stuck in cycles of anxiety or self-criticism, by unhealthy use of substances or the legacy of past traumatic or distressing experiences, moving through life differently is possible. I ground my work in a range of research-informed approaches, including EMDR, to help you improve your well being and connection with others, enhance your self-understanding, and be more present in important areas of life. Please read on to learn more about my practice and approach to therapy.

Client Focus

Session Format: Individual therapy sessions.
Age Specialty: Adult

Treatment Approach

  • Eclectic
  • EMDR
Approach Description: My work with clients is rooted in the belief that every person has the capacity to heal, and that healing begins with understanding how feelings, beliefs, and behavioral patterns develop and become ingrained over time. I draw on a variety of effective therapy approaches to support your pathway to growth, including mindfulness, trauma-informed and strength-based techniques such as EMDR, examining family dynamics and relationships, and helping you understand the role of neurobiology in your resilience and challenges. Through active dialogue and collaborative experimentation, I guide clients toward a life of authenticity,  self compassion, and greater peace of mind. My style is warm, nonjudgmental, and collaborative—it's important to me that you feel like you're talking with a real person.

Zena Caputo Practice Description
I offer virtual therapy to individual adults in California. Prior to the pandemic, I had a Bay Area-based life and practice and am familiar with its unique and diverse culture as well as local resources. If you’re considering doing EMDR remotely due to location or convenience, one thing the pandemic taught us is that this work can still produce good clinical outcomes via telehealth. We can utilize the bilateral stimulation that is a key component of EMDR in a variety of ways during video sessions. I offer the option to rent an easy to use set of ‘remote tappers’ that can enhance our work together and bring the most of the therapeutic experience into the comfort of your home.
