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. My background as an artist and designer continually inspires my creative process as a therapist. I value collaboration, open-heartedness, and humor as integral parts of the work.
My work is informed by social justice and feminist philosophies, both of which value a "personal power," rather than a "power over," model of relationship. I also incorporate holistic principles and perspectives as held by many modalities, such as Hakomi, Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, Process Work, and Humanistic Psychology. These types of therapy provide a foundation for expanding self-awareness and 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 post-grad internships included community agencies, such as Chrysalis Community Counseling in Santa Rosa and Blue Oak Therapy Center in Berkeley. I served on Blue Oak's Board of Directors for three years.
I live in the San Francisco Bay Area. I love cats, most especially my cat Sunny. I am in the midst of exploring my artistic side – I currently enjoy jewelry-making, including silversmithing and beading, and also experiment with various mixed media when inspiration strikes.
