Cassiana Peres Luize
- Registered Associate Marriage and Family Therapist
Master of Arts in Counseling Psychology
If you’re here, I imagine you are considering finding a journey partner. I’m happy to start this
conversation with you and to support you along the way. There are moments we can feel as if
something is wrong, we feel stuck and experience emotions that can feel unmanageable. Life
disruptions and transitions can feel overwhelming and extremely hard. I'm here to be with you
through life transitions and challenging seasons.
I work in a collaborative way where therapy is centered on your emotional needs; everything
you are and believe in is welcomed in the therapy room. I believe the therapeutic relationship
can promote healing; I describe myself as a therapist that's highly influenced by existential,
gestalt, and humanistic approaches.
My journey with Psychology studies started in 2010, in Brazil, when I engaged in a program to become a licensed therapist. I currently hold a B.A. in Psychology (Brazil) and an M.A. in Counseling Psychology (Berkeley, CA). I also had the opportunity to support clients in Dublin, Ireland, for 2-3 years after becoming a member of the Psychological Society of Ireland. My primary work experience is with adults, older adults, and middle/high school students. I am currently an Associate Marriage and Family Therapist offering therapy services to California residents.
I found in Existential/Humanistic approaches a language that speaks to my core as a therapist
and a way to meet people where they’re at. I am also very influenced by my independent
studies and experience with Gestalt therapy.
I am curious about cultural encounters, challenges involving acculturation, and identity
transition. I will sit with you through hard-to-answer questions and invite you to cultivate
clearer perceptions of your feelings and circumstances.
Feel free to reach out so we can get to know each other.
