Joel Decker, SEP, LMFT#50087

I am a California-licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (MFT), certified Somatic Experiencing Practitioner (SEP), and Pre and Perinatal family consultant (PPN).

I am an adjunct faculty instructor at California Institute of Integral Studies and John F Kennedy University. I am a clinical supervisor to MFT interns exploring the somatic approach, assist the Somatic Experiencing training in the US and Internationally, am a visiting lecturer at Diablo Valley College, and a clinical member of the California Association of Marriage and Family Therapists (CAMFT) and the Associated Bodywork & Massage Professionals (ABMP). I work with individuals, couples, and families. I have been facilitating groups for twelve years with a focus on somatic health. My bodywork approach is informed by Kathy Kain’s Somatic Resilience, Biodynamic Craniosacral therapy, and clinical applications of neuroscience research.

To set up a Somatic Experiencing or Psychotherapy session in either Berkeley or Oakland office call for a brief phone conversation. You’ll have the opportunity to ask questions and discuss any needs or concerns. If you live outside of the Oakland, Berkeley East Bay Area I am happy to provide referrals to a somatic therapist closer to you. I have offices in both Berkeley (map) and Oakland (map)

Over the years I have developed a trusted network of other trauma oriented practitioners, such as; Acupuncture, Visceral, Life Coach, and Naturopathic Medicine. Their specific skills in the structural complexities of long-term traumatic stress may contribute to your restorative health and personal transformation. During our work I may offer a referral as adjunct support to your unique healing process. To read more, please visit: Integrative Trauma Treatment
