Dwayne Schanz, PsyD, Psychologist in San Francisco
Sometimes people need help understanding and coping with painful life experiences. Sometimes people feel stuck. Sometimes people need help solving difficult problems or gaining control of their emotions. Sometimes people just want to feel better about their lives.
Sometimes families struggle with a child/adolescent's confusing or difficult behavior. Some families are different & need a safe place to find solutions to live in an unsupportive world. I help problem-solve and strengthen healthy development. Focus may be parenting consultation or on individual therapy with regular caregiver meetings.
I work collaboratively with you while respecting individual style, personality and background. I am a warm and genuine person who creates a safe place to explore problems, establish goals and discover ways to meet those goals.
