Medical Counseling offers individual consulting, online classes, and therapy/support groups that use neuroplasticity, psychotherapy (counseling), meditation, guided imagery, affirmations, journaling, relaxation techniques, intuition, music, art, movement, and other strategies to help alleviate pain, recover rapidly from surgery, reduce side effects of medical treatment, help with anxiety, depression, and stress, decrease risk of medical conditions such as high blood pressure and heart attack, and improve quality of life. These powerful tools help people living with cancer. With offices in the Claremont neighborhood of Berkeley, we provide medical guidance and recommendations to residents of the East Bay and the entire San Francisco Bay Area, including Albany, Berkeley, Contra Costa County, El Cerrito, Hayward, Kensington, Lafayette, Marin County, Oakland, Piedmont, Richmond, San Leandro, Walnut Creek, and beyond.
