Therapist Oakland CA – Oakland Psychologist

Welcome to Langniappe

Langniappe’s therapists are here to help you overcome the barriers to your success, find joy, heal, recover and revel in  your life!

Langniappe’s vision is to provide a space where psychotherapy meets the needs of anyone who feels that they would benefit from it. At Langniappe we understand, all of the aspects of life that can impact mental health. Our aim is to create a space, where clients feel seen and heard by their therapist. We are especially encouraging to BIPOC and LGBTQ clients seeking therapy.

The practice of psychotherapy was based and founded on a set of principles, beliefs and values, that are not necessarily reflected in the experience of BIPOC and other clients who now regularly seek therapy. Today we continue to uphold, fundamental clinical, legal and ethical principles of psychotherapy, because these protect the client. We also recognize the need to broaden the breadth and scope of practice, to reflect inclusion in the therapeutic space.
