Clare Chi, AMFT
Therapist in Berkeley, CA
Meet Clare: Hello! I’m Clare Chi, an Associate Marriage and Family Therapist currently under supervision by Jonathan Wolfrum, LMFT at Evergreen Counseling. I received my undergraduate degree in psychology and communications from the University of California, Davis, and my graduate degree in counseling psychology from Santa Clara University. I’ve been practicing therapy since 2019. My therapeutic approach is person-centered within a systems framework. I utilize strengths-based practices and hold an optimistic viewpoint, acknowledging human capacity for resilience and holding faith that we are doing the best we can in our everyday lives.
My Therapy Specialties in Berkeley:
I specialize in working with adolescents, adults, families, and couples dealing with issues related to:
- Anxiety & Stress
- Relational Issues
- Life Transitions
- Grief & Loss
- Substance Abuse
I welcome clients from all cultural backgrounds and identities. I have a particular interest in working with young adults who identify as POC or first-generation, and those navigating their sense of self and identity.
What drew me to this work: Raised to believe that thoughts were safer than feelings, that worthiness was measured by achievements, and that bravery was invincibility rather than vulnerability, I moved through life living in my head rather than from my heart. In navigating my own journey toward connection in the midst of people who held space for me to feel safe and vulnerable, I’ve come to believe that healing and growth is relational. It happens in the presence of another. It is with this belief and gratitude that leads me to this work. It is my commitment to hold a safe and collaborative space for you and to meet you where you’re at, as we walk together on your journey toward healing and growth.
My style: Person-centered and empathic, with unconditional positive regard.
