Therapy and Counseling in the East Bay

Serving the East Bay with offices in Lafayette and Berkeley in addition to a satellite practice in Mount Shasta.

Welcome to, the web home of Marriage and Family Therapist Marty Sochet.  In these pages I’ll do my best to give you a sense of my practice.  Over the past thirty-five years I’ve helped hundreds of individuals and families in the East Bay and Central Contra Costa County to improve their relationships – both with themselves and their loved ones.

If we can find more authenticity in our lives, we can experience joy more fully and be more truly alive.  This means being able to move toward our pain as well as our joy.

To be still with our pain takes an enormous amount of self kindness and compassion.  Learning how to be more empathic with ourselves and expressive of our needs, allows us to make relational connections that are deep and satisfying.

I invite you to browse my site for more information about my specialties and practice.
