About Loren Gerstein

I am a licensed psychologist with years of experience providing psychotherapy to people who are suffering and just not sure how to proceed in healing and recovery. Working with depression, anxiety, stress, grief, and all kinds of relationship issues are a common part of my practice. I help you to connect with your own strengths and teach practical tools you can use right away to help yourself feel better and solve real-life problems. By listening carefully I match what I offer to your unique personality, needs, and circumstances. Although my style is gentle, my clients appreciate my directness, active engagement, and sense of humor. I have daytime and evening hours in Santa Rosa (handicapped accessible). You really can improve your life.
