Hello and welcome! My name is Dr. Don Fallin. I am a licensed psychologist in private practice. This website contains all the information you need to find out about my services.

I believe that effective psychotherapy enables clients to take control of their own feelings and behavior by gently uncovering the connections between past experiences and current difficulties. Positive change occurs in an atmosphere of responsibility and hope, and a respectful, dedicated therapist can effectively guide this process. I integrate straightforward communication and empathy in the context of steady, clear boundaries. I work with children from toddlers through adolescents, as well as individual adults and couples. I provide a wide range of psychological services, including play therapy, psychodynamic psychotherapy, personality testing, and family court and custody related interventions.

Many of my clients are in separated or blended families, and common issues include: anger, parenting, relationship problems, grief, academic and behavior problems, childhood abuse, and identity formation. In addition to my practice, I teach graduate classes in psychopathology and assessment, and perform custody evaluations, psychological testing and expert testimony.

My office is designed to meet the needs of both children and adults, and is conveniently located in Hayward near the 880 freeway. Cities within 20 minutes include: Alameda, Oakland, San Leandro, San Lorenzo, Castro Valley, Newark, Union City, Fremont, Dublin and Pleasanton.
