"I am a Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist and have 20+ years of experience in the field of Mental Health. I am a trained Trauma Therapist and work with all kinds of traumatic experiences although I specialize in treating Childhood Sexual Trauma and Sexual Trauma and Domestic Violence. I work with individuals, couples and families. I have many transgender clients and understand their issues and challenges. I am non judgemental and sensitive and work from the client's perspective. I use EMDR with excellent results and offer a free 30 minute consultation on the phone or in person."
"I welcome those who may not feel as comfortable in all treatment spaces: members of the LGBTQQIAAP communities, gender-creative folks, people wanting to talk about size acceptance, people of color and members of marginalized groups, those in non-traditional relationships, iconoclastic artists and activists, Burners and nerds, and everyone else who struggles with how to succeed on this planet without forcing themselves to fit in. I have 16 years of experience as a therapist, and a genuine knack for connecting with people, helping them get unstuck from the patterns that trouble them most."
Marriage & Family Therapist, MS, MFT
"I am a seasoned Marriage Family and Child psychotherapist with extensive experience working with all traumas, depression, anxiety, attachment and relationship difficulties. I'm committed to being a culturally competent therapist, my practice is diverse and includes individuals and couples of all ages, races, genders and sexual orientations. I am a supervisor for MFT interns; individual and group supervision available."
"I work with women navigating the path to motherhood, including pregnancy and the postpartum period. I utilize the therapeutic relationship as the vehicle for uncovering insight that leads to change. I believe our past relationship experiences offer emotional clues that illuminate current interpersonal patterns. In our fast-paced culture where spoken conversations are fading, psychotherapy is a place where client's can connect with their narratives by speaking them aloud and learning how to rewrite them. I view therapy as a canvas for meaningful storytelling and believe healing happens when our words are witnessed and new meaning is created."
Marriage & Family Therapist, MFT
"Clients work with me on stuck places in their life. Often they are struggling with life transitions such as relationship dissatisfaction, career issues, family difficulties, anxiety and depression. I take an active role in the therapy process, providing feedback and suggestions when needed. I specialize in working with clients from many cultures. Growing up in two cultures myself, I experienced being new to this country and trying to establish relationships and a new life in a different culture.I have valued and enjoyed my work with individual and couples over the past twenty years."
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, 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."
Marriage & Family Therapist, MA, LMFT
"Does your family have extra challenges because of adoption (and pre-adoption history), attachment problems, trauma, loss, divorce, or other complications? I work with children, teens, and parents who are struggling with issues most families don't have to deal with--issues like abandonment, abuse, insecure attachment/RAD, child/teen anxiety and depression, out-of-control behavior, and post traumatic stress. When parents feel lost, frustrated, overwhelmed, or scared, therapy can help restore hope, promote attachment, develop new skills and new understanding, and return children to a healthy developmental trajectory. What's overwhelming becomes manageable, enhancing family relationships and functioning."
Marriage & Family Therapist, MFT

I have 30+ years experience treating all kinds of problems, including relationship issues, anxiety/depression, grief and loss, divorce, anger, low self esteem, stress, career issues. I help couples with poor communication, lack of intimacy, balancing career and kids. My clients come from every ethnic group in San Francisco. Many SF doctors refer their patients to me for psychotherapy. I also treat gay and lesbian individuals and couples."
Marriage & Family Therapist, MA, LMFT
"Therapy provides an opportunity to slow down the rapid paces of our lives and look around to explore the ways we cope. Ultimately, this teaches us more about who we truly are. Suffering is inevitable in our lives, but it can function as a window into our truer, deeper selves. Contacting and nurturing the parts of ourselves that have been hurt, shamed, or neglected helps us to more fully embody our unique selves and find freedom from the constraints of our pain."
"Lacking pleasure and fulfillment, life turns anxious and desolate. When problems fester untended, they undermine zest, dampening our inner life force. A primary tool toward inner healing and growth is finding the essential meaning in your life. This requires learning who you are underneath the defenses and barriers that have been necessary for safety. In psychotherapy we form a relationship in which it is safe to talk about who you are and how you experience the world around you. Consequently you may come to know and appreciate yourself more deeply, and find the meaning that will give your life gusto."
"The essence of my work lies in creating a relationship with you in which you would feel safe to engage in an inner journey home - opening your heart to yourself, cultivating compassionate self-understanding and developing trust in what is being felt in the moment. Old hurts and self-defeating beliefs can cause us to defend against vulnerable feelings impacting our capacity to trust, ourselves and others, and our ability to connect intimately, think positively regarding our deepest life concerns and open to love, allowing it to work its way through us impacting and inspiring all areas of our life."
Marriage & Family Therapist, LMFT
"Are you feeling stuck? Perhaps you're in the middle of one of life's "necessary changes," or struggling with starting on your path in the world, regarding purpose,meaning, and making a living. Perhaps you're trying to "reboot" after a loss, illness, or other life-changing experience, or trying to adjust and move forward in the midst of mid-life transition. As your therapist, I will meet you where you are at, and team up with you to create a life in which you find meaning, joy, and fulfillment."

"I have over 25 years of providing individual therapy to adults, children and adolescents. I also work with couples.

"A lot of people struggle with stress and overwhelming life situations. Seeking outside help is one of the best things you can do to gain insight and be effective. Having a therapist means that you have a confidant who will listen carefully, help you process your thoughts, and give you unbiased feedback."
