I am a psychotherapist and provide mental health therapy for adults, children, adolescents, and families, both in person and online.
I am a trauma-informed, somatically-oriented therapist, passionate about supporting others through therapy.
I provide sessions for adults, children, teens, parents, and families.
I have trained in somatic therapy and offer somatic/body-based interventions in addition to talk therapy.
I have a special interest in working with adults on: complex & acute trauma, anxiety, emotion regulation, interpersonal relationships, self-esteem, grief, life transitions, & disability-related topics.
I believe healing is found through exploring your mental, emotional, physical, and social strengths and needs, the impact of past events, your thought patterns, somatic experiences, and your wisdom. I tend to draw from DBT, CBT, somatic, narrative, and psychodynamic theory, and trauma-informed research.
I encourage you to be an active participant in identifying goals and letting me know how best to help you.
Youth & Family Therapy
I have extensive experience working with families and in schools and welcome children of all ages, teens, parents, families, and educators. With children (and adults too!) I utilize play, art, sand tray, music, somatic and social-emotional learning tools. I provide parent and family sessions focused on building parenting skills, positive parent-child interactions, and attunement, and on increasing desired behaviors and decreasing undesired ones. I enjoy supporting parents, teachers, and children around fostering a positive school experience. Some issues I focus on with youth include: anger, traumatic events, general anxiety, social anxiety, separation anxiety, making and managing friendships, bullying, frequent arguing in the home, withdrawnness, self-esteem, fear, sexual abuse, and more.
I am committed to social justice and invite discussion around power & privilege within & outside of the therapy room.
I am allied to the LGBTQIA2S+, BIPOC, polyamorous, Deaf, DeafBlind, neurodivergent, & disability communities.
Hello! My name is Rosalie Stillford (she, her) and I am an Associate Marriage and Family Therapist & Associate Professional Clinical Counselor, supervised by Amanda Morrison.
I believe each person has the power to experience increased peace, acceptance, healing, and growth. I find the therapeutic relationship can be a powerful place to foster this.
I am the daughter of Deaf, disabled, and DeafBlind parents, and because of this feel I am able to relate well to members, loved ones, and allies of the disability community.
I received my BA in English Literature from UC Berkeley in 2003, MA in Education in 2007, and a MA in Counseling Psychology from The Wright Institute in 2015. In addition to my therapy work I have taught elementary school since 2005, and am a champion of using trauma-informed social and emotional learning practices in schools.
I'm an East Bay native, and am proud to call Oakland, CA home. I enjoy spending time with friends, family, and my cats, and hiking, camping, playing violin, yoga, and reading.
