Your Healing Journey Begins When You Pick Up The Phone.

When you contact us, we will call you back as soon as possible. Usually on the same day.

You’re in pain, and you want help. NOW. It took courage to make the call, and we honor that.

Therapy is not just happy, fluffy stuff.

People really do fall apart all the time, and their internal struggles are intense.

At Bay Area Mental Health, we work with people to solve, actual, real, tangible, and serious problems. Our clients often cannot acknowledge their situation in the outside world; but, collaboratively, we attack the problems aggressively.

We get things done.

The body is usually healthy, but from time to time we break a bone, or catch the flu, or a cold. The brain is no different. It also becomes temporarily disabled. We don’t like to acknowledge this, but it is a fact. The brain is sometimes ‘under the weather.’

We treat people with severe, often hidden problems. That’s who we are, that’s what we do, and that’s why we are here for you.

We specialize in trauma therapy, PTSD and complex PTSD, Depression, Anxiety, Bipolar Disorder, Addiction and Substance Abuse, and Domestic Violence and Emotional Abuse.

We welcome your call.

Larissa Pasut Fellenz, AMFT (103781, Supervised by Linnea Butler, LMFT, 83313)

Hi I’m Larissa and I work with adults, teens, couples and families. It’s exhausting and draining to be in emotional pain, and you don’t have to live your life like that. We all have stories of pain and suffering, but we don’t have to live in that story. Here’s the secret – we are more than what has happened to us and our story doesn’t get to define us…

Kimberly McCord, LMFT (116664)

When the little voice inside your head says “I’m not good enough” it’s too easy to believe it. The inner critic is a force to be reckoned with! People are often harder on themselves than they are on other people and I want to help you challenge that little voice and learn to believe in yourself again. We often hold ourselves to an impossible standard and it’s overwhelming to try to keep up. Sometimes you just need time to reflect and breathe.
