Dylan Berkey I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (MFC 44317). I am passionate about working with individuals and couples toward the goal of discovering how to access and express our deepest selves and form meaningful connections. I specialize in addiction and recovery, trauma, body image issues, and relationship therapy. My work also focuses on assisting people in making life transitions (adolescence-adulthood; menopause). I am committed to celebrating LGBTQ and gender variant people and communities and have a particular interest in working with gender variant individuals and their loved ones. I use psychoanalytic and postmodern theories as well as narrative techniques in making links between subject and culture/subculture, always challenging gender stereotypes that keep us limited.

I have extensive experience with individual, relationship, family, and group therapy. My approach is individualized, in that I enter into each therapeutic alliance with the goal of facilitating the growth process in the manner best suited to the individual(s) involved. I have in-depth training in psychoanalytic/ psychodynamic therapy, as well as postmodern, narrative, cognitive-behavioral and motivational enhancement therapies. I view psychotherapy as a process that takes time. While I am trained in brief therapy approaches, my passion is for depth work.

I provide individual, relationship, and group therapy services.

In addition to office-based therapy, I have developed a practice integrating psychotherapy and outdoor physical exercise. TRAVERSE Integrative Outdoor Therapy brings together my interests and expertise in psychological and body-based practices. Click here to visit my TRAVERSE Therapy website.
