Professional statement

Nauser Bear is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist located in Oakland, CA. Nauser specializes in supporting individuals who dedicate themselves and their time to activism, caretaking, teaching, healing, or creating. He recognizes the stress and often dismay that comes with being a helping person in the modern day, especially in the face of causes like climate change and racial justice. He provides a secure, non judgemental space for clients to talk about their feelings, ideas, and experiences. He helps clients better understand themselves and develop a stronger respect for their identities.

Nauser tailors each session to his clients’ needs. He draws from evidence-based therapy practices like Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), and mindfulness based practices. He recognizes and values each client’s individual strengths and uses these strengths to promote healing. His goal is to empower clients to find an authentic sense of balance, connection, and purpose in their lives.

Nauser earned his Master’s degree from the California Institute of Integral Studies. He is passionate about providing culturally-competent care and aims to make mental health services accessible for clients of all backgrounds, identities, and experiences. He supports his clients as they take care of themselves before heading back out into the world to take care of others.


Message to clients

Hi! My name’s Nauser. It rhymes with “saucer.” (Yes, I’ve said that since I was in kindergarten.) In Arabic it means “helper granting victory.” My top three values are love, humor, and justice. I’m half-Persian, half-“white,” half-blind, and half convinced that we can save the world. I use tools and strategies from personal development, psychological healing, and spiritual growth to help heart-centered leaders discover their power and build the better world that our souls are yearning for.

I work with highly compassionate adults who struggle with codependency, shame, and low self-esteem, helping them build a foundation of self-love from which their natural capacity for caring can become a superpower at a time when the world needs more people willing to stand up for what’s right. As my clients step into their power and take control of their own lives, they start responding in healthy ways to national and global issues that humanity hasn’t figured out how to handle yet (like COVID, systemic racism, and climate change). I help my clients build self understanding and acceptance, identify their boundaries, values, and vision for the world, and create action plans to start making that vision a reality. I’m bicultural, and this makes it easier for me to connect with people across differences, particularly other bicultural individuals or white-passing POCs. I also work well with sensitive men whose shame about male-driven oppression of women has made it hard for them to embrace a healthy masculinity.
