Hello! My name is Merideth Bowen Shamszad, Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist.
If you are seeking the guidance from what some call the Muse or the Self, I am here to support your quest. It is my belief and experience that you have an inner healer, a true light that can reflect wisdom upon whatever the circumstances or dynamics of your life. As a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in Oakland, California, I want to help you quiet the voices of fear, shame, anxiety or depression so that you can better connect with your own truth.
In our work together, we can use a variety of methods, which may include talk therapy, expressive arts, drama therapy, guided imagery, and/or ketamine-assisted therapy (KAP). Psychotherapy can transform your life, and I am committed to working with you to create a therapeutic process which will encourage and support your intrinsic ability to change, heal and grow. Please explore my website to learn more about my philosophy and my work. I am now meeting with clients in person in my new expressive arts studio; we can also meet remotely on Zoom, which I have found to be effective as well. I look forward to meeting with you.
I welcome people of all gender and racial identities, cultural backgrounds, sexual orientations, religions and body sizes into my individual and group psychotherapy. My office is wheelchair accessible.
