Andre Casas, Psy. D.
Pre-Doctoral and Post-Doctoral Interns
With curiosity, warmth, and empathy, I offer a welcoming space for reflection, exploration, and working through difficult issues. I am deeply committed to helping people from diverse backgrounds overcome the unique challenges they face. From young to older adults, I do individual psychotherapy with individuals experiencing a wide range of concern including: life transitions, difficulties in relationships, spirituality, academic distress, existential concerns, sexuality/gender, family of origin issues, anxiety, depression, substance use, grief/loss, trauma, and identity development. My therapeutic approach is trauma-informed and combines psychodynamic, relational, cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), and existential-humanistic perspectives. We may explore early attachment experiences, look at patterns in your interpersonal relationships, clarify your life values and goals, and talk about ways to create more meaning and purpose. I am passionate about helping those seeking psychotherapy as a form of self-learning, self-expansion, and self-compassion. I am a licensed psychological associate in California (PSB 94027382). I completed my Psy.D. in Clinical Psychology at The Wright Institute in Berkeley, and completed my postdoctoral fellowship at UC Berkeley Counseling and Psychological Services. I have over six years of clinical experience in community mental health and university counseling settings such as Mills College at Northeastern, University of Oklahoma, Contra Costa College, and UCSF Alliance Health Project.
