Black Minds Matter Psychotherapy


My name is Reuben Burke and I am an African American psychotherapist in Oakland and San Rafael who’s black therapy practice focuses on black couples therapy and marriage therapy for African Americans. In addition, I provide anxiety therapy for PTSD, and depression and anxiety for individuals from Richmond to San Francisco and across the USA.
As a caring therapist, sensitive to the unique needs of African American couples and individuals. I offer mental health treatments to help you and your partner navigate the challenges of your relationship using cognitive therapy, acceptance commitment therapy, narrative therapy, and family systems to develop a personalized treatment plan for your individual needs.
Do you feel chronic anxiety and helplessness? Throughout your life as an African American, you may have been traumatized in some ways that you do not remember. Those events, though forgotten, live in your body as unresolved threats generating symptoms of anxiety, depression, physical pain, and causing behavioral problems. I will provide you with evidenced based tools and therapy techniques that you can use at any time for immediate relief from your anxiety and depression or PTSD.
