Welcome to Metaphor Therapy. My name is MacKenzie Stuart and I provide psychotherapy to adults and partners from Alameda, California with my associates. I offer both in-person and telehealth services, and am licensed to practice in both California and New Jersey.
I hope this space can help you begin to answer whether we might work well together.
Being warm, caring, empathetic, and helpful is a core part of being a therapist, so I won't emphasize those qualities here. Here are some of what I consider to be my more unique clinical facets:
Nonjudgmental even when not neutral
High energy, whimsical, and mirthful
Skilled at verbally describing internal decision-making and emotional processes, often with terrible yet effective metaphors
Excellent pattern recognition and analytical skills
