Cressida Forester, Psychologist  in San Francisco
“For over thirty years I have been helping people to find their way through hard times and feelings, so that they can have warmer, richer lives and more satisfying relationships. You may be feeling hopeless, angry, overwhelmed, anxious, depressed or confused. Perhaps you are going through major life-changes such as relationship or work difficulties, loss, or migration. Perhaps you are stuck creatively, or simply want to live more soulfully. As we sift through things together, you can feel better, avoid old pitfalls, and find your path to your goals. Your initial phone consultation is free.

Barbara J Thomas, Psychological Associate  in San Francisco
“So, you are browsing for someone to help you. There are many here who can, myself included. Effective therapy is first and foremost about good fit. Can we collaborate on a solution for you? Do I care enough to hear what you are saying and feel what you are not ready to say? Am I patient enough to give you time to share in your own time and in your own way? Am I willing to be directive when you most need it, even though you may not want that? In a word, "Yes."

Deborah Cooper, Marriage & Family Therapist  in San Francisco
Verified by Psychology Today
Marriage & Family Therapist, MA, MFT
“Being a licensed psychotherapist since 1986, I've worked with a wide variety of issues. I know that pain and suffering are inevitable in life, but being miserable is optional. With warmth and humor, I am skilled at helping clients make meaning of the suffering, while facilitating and eliciting options that lead out of it. I work with couples and individuals of different races, ethnicities, sizes, orientations, genders, and ages. Therapy is the process of examining your life as a great novel in process of being created. My job is to help you envision and shape the next chapter.

Marriage & Family Therapist, MA, MFT
“Searching for a therapist can be a daunting process. Especially if youíre not inclined to ask others for help in the first place. Maybe youíre used to muscling through things on your own. Maybe you think you should be stronger, or be able to solve your own problems. As you start to consider therapy, how do you know who youíre going to click with? How do you trust that itís even worth the effort? What will it be like to talk, and have someone truly listen?

Arlene Bermann, Clinical Social Work/Therapist  in San Francisco
Verified by Psychology Today
Clinical Social Work/Therapist, LCSW
“I think of therapy as like sanctuary - a place where there aren't distractions, where there is an opportunity to pay attention to what is important, in a spirit of kindness. Because of this, many individuals and couples find it to be enjoyable, and very relieving. Of course, since people do therapy to work on painful things, therapy itself isn't always easy. But at least things can be approached thoughtfully and skillfully, in a safe context, and this itself brings great benefits.

Andrea Chilton, MFT, Marriage & Family Therapist  in San Francisco
“You are here because in one way or another, you're hurting. I have learned through my own process of struggle and growth that it is strength and wisdom, not "weakness," that leads you to seek help. While education and training are indispensable, what equips me to help most is my personal experience of working through my own challenges in a profound way. This means I will never presume to walk you through territory I have not traversed myself. I've developed a powerful compass, which has allowed me the honor of guiding many others though their processes of healing and evolution.
