Welcome to Metaphor Therapy, home of MacKenzie Stuart and a talented team of associates. I'm MacKenzie and I provide psychotherapy to adults, partners, and families. I offer both in-person and telehealth services, so while I'm in Alameda, California, you can be anywhere in the state.
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
Stick around and learn more about MacKenzie, the Metaphor Therapy team, and the services we offer.
