About Kerri Green, MFT
My approach begins with empathy and warm acceptance, which I believe are some of the most important ingredients of a healing relationship - ones that help us feel loved and understood by others. I value open-heartedness and humor as integral parts of the work. I also incorporate somatic and holistic approaches for expanding self-awareness and increasing mindfulness, which I feel are the keys to personal growth and transformation.
I hold a Master's Degree in Counseling Psychology with a Somatic Psychology specialization from John F. Kennedy University, and a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Carnegie Mellon University. My background as an artist and designer continually inspires my creative process as a therapist.
My pre-licensed journey included placements with community agencies such as Blue Oak Therapy Center in Berkeley, and the YWCA Sonoma County's Safe House for women and families escaping domestic violence. Through these experiences, I've developed an affinity for working with women who have left abusive relationships and those who are survivors of childhood abuse and trauma.
I love cats, most especially my cat Sammy. I am in the midst of exploring my artistic side – I currently enjoy jewelry-making, silversmithing and beading, and also experiment with various mixed media when inspiration strikes.
