I trust that people come to therapy seeking a more authentic happiness; and I work as best as I can to help clients let go of concepts and mistaken views of themselves that have led to more pain and confusion. I work with individuals, couples, children and families, bringing warmth and understanding to the relationships and life problems that surround us. Sometimes the first call is the most difficult. I am often available to speak briefly or will return your call as soon as possible, making the next steps and new perspectives possible.
I have trained in Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy. MBCT is an innovative, clinically proven treatment that encourages patients to play an active role in preventing the return of depression by integrating elements of mindfulness-based meditative practice with cognitive therapy.
I have over 18 years clinical experience, and have maintained a private practice in San Francisco, providing therapy to adults, couples, and children. For 12 of those years, I worked on staff of Family Service Agency of Marin, supervising and educating interns, trainees and licensed therapists.

Ms. Anne Diedrich's groups

Breaking the Cycle of Depression

Breaking the Cycle of Depression is an eight week group to prevent relapse of depression, using mindfulness-based cognitive therapy techniques (MBCT). MBCT is an innovative, clinically proven treatment that encourages patients to play an active role in preventing the return of depression by integrating elements of mindfulness-based meditative practice with cognitive therapy. This type of learning is experiential in nature and often involves developing a capacity to allow distressing feelings, thoughts and sensations to occupy awareness, without trying to change them, replace them with other thoughts, or fix anything about them.
