Claudia Gerst, LMFT
I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in private practice for 25 years treating adults, couples, children and adolescents. My approach is eclectic, mixing Psychodynamic, Developmental, and Cognitive Behavioral approaches. I am highly interactive, empathetic, and work skillfully to create an emotionally safe and comfortable environment in which to explore one's inner world of thoughts and feelings, inner conflicts, confusions, self defeating behaviors, making connections with one's early family history and how to move beyond dysfunction that came from those settings, and more. I specialize in working with couples, relationship issues, family issues, working with children, adolescents, and adults.

in Walnut Creek, CA |
Claudia is the best therapist I have ever come across. She is professional, warm and incredibly smart. She has gotten me through the most stressful times in my life. Her advice is invaluable. I was hesitant about getting a therapist for myself since I usually feel that I can handle things myself. Finding her was one of the best things I have ever done!
