Lisa C Beritzhoff, MFT, Marriage & Family Therapist in San Francisco
As a experienced, licensed Psychotherapist, I believe in the collaborative process in which both therapist and client are coparticipants in transformation. I attempt to create a safe place in which clients feel free to express their unique life experiences in order to more fully understand the obstacles that inhibit their growth. In a supportive therapeutic relationship, it is possible to emotionally metabolize life's challenging events to begin to really know and trust oneself in order to create meaningful change.
I specialize in working with adults and teens to help ameliorate depressed or anxious symptoms, interpersonal and relational challenges, life transitions, school or professional difficulties and family conflicts. My treatment modality is psychodynamic psychotherapy and relational psychoanalysis-for those who want a more intensive, in-depth approach.
I believe that psychotherapy works when the therapist is observant to the particular ways in which clients feel confused or hurt. In partnership with my client, we work to change unhealthy ways of seeing onself and moving through the world - to make way for increased self acceptance and fulfilling relationships.
