Katy Lonergan, PhD, Psychologist in San Francisco
You may feel as if you are a passive participant in your life longing to be more active and connected while feeling so incredibly stuck. If you find yourself here, perhaps you or your child has been struggling to enjoy things that he or she usually enjoys (having friends over, heading outdoors, reading/watching tv). Their mind might be filled with worries of what others think and they did something wrong and are having difficulties shaking off an interaction. You or your child are wanting to feel more at ease in your relationships while finding yourself in familiar unhelpful patterns.
I view therapy as a collaborative endeavor where you are the expert of you and I provide supportive, non-judgmental, and, when appropriate, directive feedback to help you compassionately sort through unhelpful patterns of relating to yourself and others, allowing you to live life more fully with joy and authenticity.
Ultimately, what is most important when working with a therapist is to find the right fit. If what I have written resonates with you, I invite you to contact me. For more information feel free to visit my website.
