David Celniker, Ph. D.
Psychotherapy/Consultation Oakland Psychologist
I work with children, adolescents, and adults who are experiencing a range of difficulties. I conduct individual, couples, and/or family sessions depending on the nature and scope of the problem. I am bilingual English-Spanish. I believe that successful outcomes require a safe, supportive environment in which clients feel understood and respected. I use a collaborative, integrative approach to best fit each client's needs and personality. Sounds good, but what does that mean? It means that clients are actively involved in developing (and refining) treatment goals, as well as giving feedback throughout the therapy process. It also means that I utilize techniques that are likely to be most effective given a client's personality style and type of problem. Parents of children and/or adolescents are often regularly involved in sessions.
