Jamie Bachman, LCSW

Licensed Clinical Social Worker


I'm a therapist providing counseling to individuals as well as couples counseling and family therapy in Oakland. I also provide consultation and supervision, particularly for therapists working with Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT).  

Whether you are troubled by stress or worry, feelings of depression, sadness, or grief, unsatisfying or conflicted relationships, chronic pain or illness, or other symptoms of a life out of balance, I want you to know that you can achieve the kind of changes you’ve longed for.

Through counseling, you can access inner strengths and apply them to problems that appear insurmountable.  As we work together, you will find that it is possible to make real, substantive changes in your life.

People often unknowingly block progress toward their goals by holding tightly to a limited idea of who they are and what they can achieve. I regard it as my job to help you gain insight into your experience and shift your perspective, allowing you to recognize and overcome internal obstacles.

In our work, we will identify not only the challenges you face, but also the strengths you have brought to bear on past problems.

I would be happy to meet with you for a consultation session to see how I can best help you identify and work toward your goals.
