Melissa Foster, LMFT, Marriage & Family Therapist in San Francisco
I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and an Art Therapist. I help clients create healthier patterns in life and improve relationships. Services available for adults, couples, families and children. My areas of emphasis include abuse, trauma, anxiety, depression, divorce, grief, parenting support, self-esteem, and personal growth. I am also trained in EMDR.
In addition talk therapy, I also offer art therapy to provide a non-verbal, safe way to externalize and resolve issues. The process itself can be healing and reflection on the artwork may provide insights into inner experiences, emotions, and behaviors.
My approach is warm, respectful and caring. I work collaboratively to create a safe, accepting environment for expression to help empower clients to create more balance, meaning and joy in their lives.
