Welcome to Lifetree Psychotherapy with Catarina Rodrigues, MFT. We will creatively engage where you've been to help you access what you most want next. For couples and individuals, I offer compassionate support, transformation, and new levels of understanding. We'll work together out of the Market Hall offices in the Rockridge district of Oakland where your courage, vulnerability, and boldness all have plenty of room on and off the spacious couch. I bring 25 years of experience and service to our sessions.


Working with your desire to be well and thrive, we will invite your wisdom, intuition and self-knowledge throughout your healing process.

Finding someone with whom you feel comfortable is essential to your therapeutic success. In light of that, our first session together is at a reduced rate. Once we find that we are a good fit, my current rate for individuals and couples is $170 for a 50 minute session & $240 for an extended session of 75 minutes. A sliding scale is available for students. Please note that I have a 24-hour cancellation policy. I look forward to meeting you.
