About Joel Decker

I am a Somatic Experiencing Practitioner and Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist. I am also trained in Ray Castellion's Pre and Perinatal healing and Kathy Kain's touch training for developmental trauma. I listen deeply, sometimes making suggestions, but ultimately we move at your pace, checking in often to be sure we are on the right track. Somatic Experiencing can work with individuals and couples struggling with emotional reactivity, addiction, social anxiety, depression, physical / sexual / emotional abuse, chronic anger or grief, digestive issues and other symptoms of past traumatic experience. I am also a Somatic Psychology visiting lecturer at Diablo Valley College, a clinical member of the California Association of Marriage and Family Therapists (CAMFT) and hold a Masters of Somatic Counseling from John F. Kennedy University (JFKU). My therapeutic approach is also informed by Vipassana meditation, NVC (Non-Violent Communication), and clinical applications of neuroscience research. Call for a brief phone conversation to ask questions and discuss any needs or concerns you may have. I have offices in both Berkeley and Kensington.
