You are welcome here. All of who you are is welcome here. This is where you get to be yourself. Your whole, true self.
My name is Nicola Wagenberg, I have a PhD in clinical psychology and I am licensed as a psychologist by the State of California. I work with young adults, adults, and couples on a variety of issues including depression, anxiety, anger, trauma, co-dependency, relationship issues and life transitions. I am particularly interested in working with people who have a hard time prioritizing themselves and instead put others first and are really good at taking care of others instead of themselves. I am also passionate about issues around identity and cultural diversity including, ethnicity, class, gender, sexuality, LGBTQ, and immigration. I am bilingual and provide therapy in English and Spanish.
Therapy can transform difficult feelings such as feeling stressed, stuck, hopeless, confused, and lonely. I believe that together we can work on helping you understand and sort through your feelings, find relief and support you to live the life that you are truly meant to live.
I am fully present to what comes up for you, work from what you feel in your body and help you hold the feelings that are too scary or painful to feel alone. I will support you to be who you are truly meant to be instead of who you are supposed to be according to family, societal or cultural expectations. Therapy can be very positive, affirming and transformative.
I encourage you to contact me to set up a first appointment. Call me at 510-698-2491.
