    “And then the day came, when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.” ~Anais Nin

    Life and relationships are full of twists and turns, roadblocks and obstacles can obstruct our view, we can get lost, and even get into accidents. Sometimes we can think that we’re in control, but we keep making the wrong turn. When this happens, I like to think about who is driving, and how to get the part of you that knows the way back in the driver’s seat.

    I help people struggling with anxiety, self-esteem, and relationships to let go of self-doubt, identify their underlying needs, develop wisdom and self-compassion, and embody their true self so that they can live life and show up in relationships with more peace, confidence, and wholeness.

    I approach healing holistically from a mind, body, soul perspective with deep compassion and a supportive presence. I know that personal growth isn’t easy, and that wholeness invites us to meet all parts of ourselves, including the parts we may want to shy away from. I also know that breaking patterns means not only talking about them, but also doing things differently. I’m here as a support and guide as we navigate that process together.

    About Elana Morgulis, MFT

    Therapist Oakland – Individual and couples counseling in Oakland

    I blend my 10 years of experience as a therapist with my training and wisdom as a meditation and yoga teacher. I integrate cognitive-behavioral modalities with body-based techniques such as mindfulness and nervous system regulation that deepen healing and help us embody who we truly are and aspire to be. Together, we heal the layers of the past that stand in the way of being present and fully ourselves.

    Modalities that I use include Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Internal Family Systems, Psychodynamic theory, Somatic Psychotherapy, Acceptance & Commitment Therapy, Inner Child Work, Emotion Focused Therapy, and Non-Violent Communication.

    Everyday Mindfulness for Stress & Anxiety

    Anxiety and stress can feel impossible to overcome without specific tools. Mindfulness meditation offers us not only the tools, but also a consistent inner resource to find freedom from our suffering.

    Midday Meditation Break

    This is an opportunity – a carved out time and virtual space – for you to pause, breathe, and check in with yourself, so you can then return to your day, however it looks, feeling centered, with more wisdom, and more like yourself.
