Patrick Neer, PsyD, MS, Psychologist in San Francisco
People want deep and lasting change, and this is the overall focus of my approach. First, a vital part of therapeutic success is forming a safe and trusting therapeutic relationship. My approach centers on creating a warm, collaborative and interactive therapeutic setting in which painful or troubling feelings, thoughts, memories, and issues can be faced and worked through. Goals are tailored to each individual, and can be brief and focused, or longer-term and more depth-oriented. I specialize in life transitions, trauma, identity issues, and mood problems. See my website for further information! (see link above)
Often therapy begins by focusing on relief from emotional and other symptoms, such as depression, anxiety, or troubling behaviors. From there, therapy may involve deeper explorations aimed at producing a richer sense of oneself, greater personal agency, and more satisfying, richer relationships with others and one's life endeavors.
