Welcome to Metaphor Therapy, home of MacKenzie Stuart and a talented team of associates. I'm MacKenzie and I provide psychotherapy to adults, partners, and families. I offer both in-person and telehealth services, so while I'm in Alameda, California, you can be anywhere in the state.

I hope this space can help you begin to answer whether we might work well together.

Being warm, caring, empathetic, and helpful is a core part of being a therapist, so I won't emphasize those qualities here. Here are some of what I consider to be my more unique clinical facets:

  • Nonjudgmental even when not neutral

  • High energy, whimsical, and mirthful

  • Skilled at verbally describing internal decision-making and emotional processes, often with terrible yet effective metaphors

  • Excellent pattern recognition and analytical skills

Stick around and learn more about MacKenzie, the Metaphor Therapy team, and the services we offer.
