Welcome To My Website

My name is Robert Bartner and I am a practicing psychoanalyst and educator working in the Adams Point area of Oakland CA. My office is just off Grand Avenue and very near Lake Merritt.

As a psychoanalyst, I’d like to introduce you to the type of work I do: psychoanalysis and psychoanalytic psychotherapy. As a psychoanalyst, I am interested in helping people understand their unconscious motivations, desires, and fears to better equip them to manage and make productive use of the inevitable challenges of life. Knowing yourself more deeply can lead to a fuller sense of self, it can help develop stronger more fulfilling relationships and lead to a more compelling awareness of the world around you.

There are many benefits to this type of work and for those of you interested in exploring the possibility of working with me, I invite you to call me so that I can answer any questions you have about my practice. I also invite you to explore this website where I have provided a short introduction to what this type of work has to offer, as well as links to more information.

Over the last 27+ years I have helped people with a wide range of problems

  • panic

  • depression
  • trauma

  • compulsivity
  • addiction
  • self-defeating behaviors
