Marilyn Stettler, MFT offers ongoing groups for
Women-Over-Fifty in both Davis and Castro Valley. Marriage
counseling and individual psychoanalytic psychotherapy are
specialties. Marilyn has been a licensed Marriage and Family
therapist since 1979 with a full time practice in San
Francisco, Davis and Castro Valley. Trained in design at the
University of Michigan, she worked in that field until
earning her Masters in Clinical Counseling.
In 2001 she completed a three year postgraduate training
program earning a certificate from the Masterson Institute
in Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy.
While maintaining a general practice working with adults ,
she has special clinical interest in helping individuals
change personality patterns, that while originally developed
for protection and survival, now interfere with self-esteem
and self-expression. With couples she arrives at a
diagnostic understanding of each individual to help them
change the ways they use their differences and personality
styles in self-protective maneuvers that prevent the
collaborative and intimate relationships they would like.
Concerned about the destruction of longer term therapy by
managed care Marilyn was one of the founding members of the
California Coalition for Ethical Mental Health Care
(CCEMHC), serving on their board of directors for six years.
