Terrence Higgins, MFT, Marriage & Family Therapist in San Francisco
Is a current relationship causing you distress? Having trouble understanding someone? Or being understood? I help people be heard by others. Maybe you are single and want to be partnered. Applying research-supported strategies, we can energize you with hope for healing from infidelity, loss, or self-defeating relationship patterns. I draw from Emotionally Focused Therapy, Gottman Method, Process-Oriented Psychology and 45-years of mindfulness practice. But, really, the key to how I help is by listening carefully to my clients. Then, working together, we create the possibility for better outcomes by empowering you to make more effective choices.
At times my clients discover that a little humor will not only liven up a session but helps them in their healing. Because I focus on achievable goals and understand their skepticism toward counseling, many therapy-resistant men feel heard and actually enjoy working with me.
Client-focused, I welcome without judgement all lifestyles and cultural backgrounds. With your free consultation we can find out if what you seek from a counselor is something I can offer you. I practice in Downtown Berkeley and, in San Francisco, the Financial District and the Laurel Heights neighborhood.
