Michele Spitulnik Ph.D.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Michele Spitulnik, licensed marriage and family therapist practicing in Lafayette, CA.


  • Do you wish for a healthy relationship or a more satisfying life? 
  • Do you repeat damaging patterns? 
  • Do you wish for a greater sense of peace or calm?
  • Have you lost someone important, parent, partner, child, and want to work through grief and loss?

I help clients identify true needs and desires and learn how to build satisfying relationships and lives. Sometimes we focus on current relationships and sometimes we identify the patterns in early relationships to understand how they influence our current situations. We use this insight to try out new ways of interacting. If clients are feeling very anxious we often use calming techniques, like deep breathing or visualization to guide our work.
