Deanna Jimenez, LMFT
“We can pay people to clean our house, do our taxes, teach us piano, and fix broken bones, but nobody can do our inner work for us.
To truly take responsibility for ourselves, we must grow up psychologically and spiritually, so we can respond to life as mature and authentic men and women.”
Breaking patterns in life that no longer serve you can be rewarding. . . and overwhelming.
Maybe I can help.
I am a compassionate, resourceful, client-centered psychotherapist in Oakland, CA. I have experience helping people create more satisfying relationships and lead happier, more balanced lives.
Whether we work individually or in couples therapy, my goal is to help you respond effectively to life's challenges through the practice of somatic psychotherapy. I provide a safe, supportive environment for you to explore your internal reality and how it is impacted by external factors. I tailor my approach to you and your specific situation; although mindfulness, interactive dialogue and practical wisdom are consistent features of my work.
I am honored to serve those who:
- want a safe space to explore issues around race, gender and identity
- feel life’s challenges are overwhelming
- experience difficulty in relationships with others
- believe happiness always eludes you
- are exploring the meaning and purpose of your life
My office is centrally located in the Lake Merritt area in Oakland, CA. Parking is available in addition to easy access via public transportation. Please explore my website and contact me for a free consultation. I look forward to serving you and your specific needs.
