Sue Saperstein, PsyD, Marriage & Family Therapist in San Francisco
What matters to you? Being curious makes a significant difference when you are thinking of making changes because now you are interested in yourself - in what you think and feel and want- and want to become. Are relationships your core concern? - wondering what is working and what is not, what is missing, and what is disappointing?Losses or fear of loss makes us anxious, ashamed, often traumatized by our own feelings. I am committed to working with your personal needs in a trusting, creative, dynamic, caring process and will help you achieve what you desire. Real changes take real time.
I provide in-depth psychotherapy offering a supportive relationship for emotional learning and growth for creative lives. I work with trauma, depression, anxieties, desire, I work with diverse people, culturally, racially and sexually, listening to individual needs. Together, we discover your desire, your full potential in love and work, family.
I offer a mature, intelligent, caring presence. I have over 40 years experience working effectively with individuals, couples, family business. I work in a therapy relationship that supports emotional understanding, successful communication skills that facilitates life changes. If you have been dissatisfied with prior therapy, let's talk and listen.
