Therapists in San Francisco

Marriage & Family Therapist, MFT, MA
"You may feel ready to make some personal or relational changes but feel apprehensive about the prospect of therapy and what it may entail. In my psychotherapy practice, I work with clients to collaboratively develop a plan that addresses your needs, incorporates your strengths, and alleviates your symptoms in the most timely way possible. My approach is compassionate, solution-focused, and pragmatic. I believe that my clients ultimately know what is best for them, and it is my job to facilitate improvement through a empathic yet challenging therapeutic environment."
Marriage & Family Therapist, MA, JD
"In my view, everyone has something unique to offer to the world, a gift that is particularly their own, that can enrich their life and the lives of those around them. For many reasons, people often do not recognize their own gifts or are afraid to express them. They devise very creative ways to override who they really are, sometimes consciously and sometimes not. Because it takes so much energy to hide who they really are, people eventually become symptomatic. Symptoms manifest in a variety of ways. Their purpose, however, is simply to get our attention."
"My primary expertise is in helping people to remove the internal barriers that are keeping them from reaching their dreams."
Marriage & Family Therapist, MA, LMFT
"My therapeutic style is grounded in Existential/Humanistic and Cognitive-Behavioral therapy with a pragmatic, down-to-earth style. Each client's therapy is individualized, collaborative, and strengths based. I help clients learn to regulate and manage feelings that overwhelm them and negatively affect their thoughts, moods, and attitudes that, in turn, lead to destructive behavior. Whether it is anxiety, depression, diminished self-esteem, or relationship issues, individual clients come to understand their present circumstances in light of their past. I am committed to helping clients improve relationships and gain self knowledge in order to create meaningful, joyful and healthy lives."

Marriage & Family Therapist, MA, MFT, REAT
"I generally work with high functioning people at important junctures in life where the suffering is great. Asking for help is often a powerful step of surrendering the ego's attempts to resist change. Symptoms are often a sign that something is trying to wake up inside of you. When you turn your attention inward and get intimate with your inner life you can start to find the energy to heal, to grow and to change."
Marriage & Family Therapist, MFT
"Welcome! I like to begin by making a warm and heartfelt connection with you, supporting and accepting you just as you are. From there, we work together to transform difficult struggles into opportunities for greater self-love and rich understanding. I see our work together as a living collaboration, with you being at choice and empowered every step of the way. I ground my practice in a process I call Mindful Inquiry: in a relaxed, open and deeply aware state, we illuminate and dissolve the stories of the mind, stories that had masked your innate beauty and true nature."

Marriage & Family Therapist, MFT
"We often come to therapy in crisis. Something has gone wrong in a relationship. Major, disorienting life transitions are underway. Emotional experiences are becoming increasingly overwhelming. Life seems stuck, static, depressing. Anxiety is on the rise. A series of events have altered our course. We are feeling lost. Therapy can offer a soothing lifeboat for these rough seas. Often crisis is a wake up call, a time for necessary change, new growth, a reconnoitering of the landscape, a vivid reorientation. My practice is designed to move you from crisis to care, from care to confidence, confidence to creative, enlivening capacity."
"I work with all types of people - from those suffering from anxiety or depression, to people adjusting to major life stressors or changes. Contact me for a free initial consultation to see how I might be of service."
"Are you or your child worried, unhappy, frustrated, unmotivated, failing to live up to your potential? Are you experiencing a transition that leads you to question your beliefs or direction? For over 20 years I have collaborated with clients of all ages (including young children and their parents) to identify, understand and address the barriers to more fulfilling relationships, work, academics, play, creativity and life. My focus is on an in-depth and compassionate understanding of each individual's unique strengths and difficulties, the factors that influence each person beyond his or her awareness and an individualized approach."
Marriage & Family Therapist Intern, MS, MA, MFTI
"Therapy is about developing a new kind of relationship with one's experience. Much of our pain, suffering, and struggle stem from resisting the experience, judging it, and denying it. My work is dedicated to helping you embrace the challenges and find meaning in them by helping you slow down, enter the experience, and discover your potent spark. We have our answers within and by looking inside, our suffering finds meaning and transformation, our vision finds clarity and awakening."
"Most people seek a therapist when they are in pain or confusion. It can be from a loss, a major life disappointment, or an impasse in communication or in moving forward with a life plan. Often I find that people come to therapy feeling stuck or trapped, with very low expectations of finding help or solace. I believe that by listening, and by offering direct, clear feedback, support and suggestions from an outside perspective, I can enable the clients I work with to view their options differently and to make important shifts in their lives."
Marriage & Family Therapist, MA, LMFT
"Do you long for a deeper sense of peace, wholeness and connection to life? Do repetitive patterns prevent you from having a fulfilling life and satisfying relationships? Any issue or symptom, such as addiction, depression or anxiety, or an underlying sense of disconnection, fear or doubt, is a message from your unconscious that something inside Is out of alignment. Together we will explore the symptoms and their meaning, to help you connect more to yourself and life. This collaborative effort is likely to facilitate significant change in your life, allowing you to live your life rather than it living you."
Marriage & Family Therapist Intern, MA, MFTI
"I believe in the power of psychotherapy to help us shed light on the path toward knowing our best and most authentic selves. In my view, the therapeutic relationship is a place where I can invite and encourage you to bring out any parts of yourself that need room for expression. The expression and working through of hurt, stuck, confused, and also joyful parts can in turn contribute to your sense of wholeness and health. I aim to show up for you in a way that is warm, engaging, and accepting of where you are on your journey toward a happy and free life."

Clinical Social Work/Therapist, MSW, LCSW
"I combine over 15 years of clinical experience with extensive training in a range of therapeutic methods including cutting-edge, holistic approaches, to facilitate transformative life changes for clients. My clients often find themselves receiving "ahas" early. When we feel overwhelmed we often look for answers outside of ourselves: if only my child would start behaving, if only my loved one would change-- things would be better. I guide clients to access their own inner strength and wisdom, so they are empowered to handle any situation life hands them - from life's most difficult circumstances to relationships with challenging people."
Marriage & Family Therapist, MS, MFT
"My approach to psychotherapy is holistic. I not only treat the "tip of the iceberg" problems, but also address the deeper, "bottom of the ocean," issues. I treat the whole person and honor the mind-body-spirit connections, taking into account the client's cultural, religious and ethnic background, ancestry, race and immigration history. I recognize the complexity of each person's history and circumstances and employ a wide variety of techniques to guide my clients in their self-discovery."
Marriage & Family Therapist, LMFT, ERYT
"Are you at a cross-point in your life, confused about the way forward? Do similar patterns appear in your relationships? Are you struggling with depression or trauma from your past? We all can have times of feeling lost. Our journey together is one of gentle inquiry, support, curiosity and safety. Through deep listening and exploration, through the unique relationship of therapist and client, we will unpack patterns, discover and deepen your strengths and find the next step on your journey. I fully believe in every individuals ability to take the lead of their life and turn it into gold."
"Talking to someone who understands the pain you feel-depression, anxiety, or feeling stuck-can relieve inner distress and give you a new perspective on your life. I am empathic and experienced at providing a safe setting where we can explore what is causing you to feel anxious, distressed or unfulfilled. In therapy we work together to clarify those emotions that have kept you from moving forward in your life. You will find new ways to see yourself and others, which leads to more meaningful relationships and a more fulfilling life."
