David Brown, MA, LMFT, Marriage & Family Therapist in San Francisco
As a licensed therapist based in San Francisco, I help individuals and couples dive beneath the surface-level issues to discover the underlying causes of their distress. Many of the men and women who choose to work with me are in the grips of anxiety, depression, addiction, or relationship challenges. Many are highly motivated professionals that are self-reliant and achievement-focused, but often struggle with self-defeating thoughts and patterns that keep them feeling stuck.
I am good at recognizing the issues that affect our sense of self and our ability to be in nourishing relationships. I am uniquely skilled in engaging the struggles related to men's issues, trauma, life transitions, spiritual development, and the LGBTQ community.
Taken with a trusted and skilled guide, a journey into our depths can increase self-awareness, help us find the best answers to life-changing questions, and guide us to a more enjoyable life. I invite you to contact me and explore the possibility of our working together.
