Hans Stahlschmidt, PhD, Psychologist in Berkeley, CA


Developing and maintaining a vital and fulfilling long-term relationship is one of the most difficult challenges we face in our lifetimes. I see impasses and breakdowns such as extensive arguing, lack of desire or estrangement as "natural and necessary failures" that point towards deeper individual issues that need to be addressed and worked through. In couples' sessions I help each partner to find a differentiated stance, interrupt dysfunctional patterns and develop healthier ways of relating and dealing with conflicts. In addition to working with couples and individuals, men's issues have been a focus of my interest for three decades.
A crisis can be used in a therapeutic process as an opportunity to overcome limitations, trauma, and deficits and to face the great issues of life. Using an integrative model that draws from attachment theory, neurobiology, differentiation, systems and relational models, I will focus on your specific needs. I am a core faculty member of the PACT Institute and train couples therapists in various cities in this model. The PACT model is a deeply mutual care model that facilitates individual growth and helps the couple to build a lasting secure functioning relationship.
