Ingrid Cognato

I believe each person has the ability to grow and heal. I see my role as a therapist as helping clients to identify the areas where they’re stuck and guiding them, in a collaborative way, to discover their own inner resources.

I am an Associate Marriage and Family Therapist supervised by Insight’s Executive Director, Sherry Douden. I have experience working with children, Individuals and families, offering counseling services through John F. Kennedy’s Community Counseling Center in Pleasant Hill as well as at the Center for Creative Growth in Berkeley. Prior to obtaining my Master’s in Counseling Psychology, I worked as the Coordinator of an after school program working closely with families in a diverse setting. Additionally, I have experience volunteering with Oakland’s Family Path’s Parent Support Hotline, as a hotline counselor.
