At San Francisco Family Practice, I specialize in psychotherapy with children, adolescents and their families, as well as with adults. I use evidence-based treatments including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) to work with you and your family, and believe in a treatment-team approach, wherein families are highly encouraged to be a part of the therapy process. In order to best create your treatment plan, I tailor my approach to your unique concerns and goals.
Common treatment issues may include but are not limited to behavioral problems at school and at home, coping with medical illness, and parenting challenges. If clinically appropriate, I often collaborate with relevant pediatricians, medical personnel, teachers and other individuals important to your child and family's success.
My practice is centrally located in the Marina, San Francisco close to many schools and medical offices. Metered street parking is available next to and around my office, and it is also easily accessible by public transportation.
