Martha Williams, PhD, Psychologist in San Francisco
Are you feeling overwhelmed or stuck, and know you need to make some changes? Our mental, emotional and physical health are all linked together.When one or more of these is out of balance, the quality of our life is affected. I provide a unique setting that is safe, supportive and accepting. I help my clients to gain new perspectives of themselves and new tools to address problematic issues of thoughts, beliefs and behaviors. Some of the issues I treat are anxiety, depression, relationship issues, as well as coping with medical issues, pain and chronic illness.
I have 30+ years of experience in private practices, as well as in medical settings. My approach is primarily cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). Other evidence based approaches such as DBT, mindfulness and stress management can also be used. I provide brief psychotherapy, however some issues may require more sessions.
My goals are to help my clients gain deeper understanding of the nature and underlying causes of the problems they want to address, and to teach them new tools to address these issues. I welcome the opportunity to speak with you so you can decide whether I can help you.
