"For over twenty-five years, I have provided understanding and relief to people who have come to me in emotional distress and psychological pain. I offer psychotherapeutic help with warmth, patience, skill, and an experienced, open mind as has long been my depth-oriented approach. Psychological distress takes us into the landscape of our private struggles, vulnerabilities and emotional injuries, but also to pathways toward restoration and healing. I invite you to listen to these internal communications with me, to learn from them, and to discover ways to translate them into guideposts for change toward greater balance, confidence, and contentment in living life."

"This may come as a surprise to you, but if you are looking for regular "talk therapy" I lovingly suggest you contact someone else. Most of my clients have done a lot of therapy and personal growth work with some rewards, but without getting to the core of what they are seeking. Integrating the best of body-centered psychotherapy, mindfulness and spiritual inquiry, I support my clients to listen deeply to their own inner wisdom, heal the wounds that are ready to be healed and discover what they most need to move forward in their lives. www.amandastason.com"

"People come to therapy for all sorts of reasons: Relief from sadness or anxiety, to break patterns that cause pain, to get clarity when you just don't know why life feels like an uphill battle or to simply get an "emotional tune-up." With compassion, emotional safety, and a clear, candid therapeutic style, I help people work through life's challenges using effective, evidence-based treatments that target the underlying causes for painful feelings.

"I have been practicing in San Rafael and San Francisco for 30+years working with adults, couples, children and adolescents. From my patients I have learned that in addition to being empathic and easy to relate to, most people want a therapist who is direct and interactive, who offers solutions to problems. We will do this in 3 Steps. First I will evaluate the reason you have come. For some people it is symptom relief; to feel less depressed and anxious...For others it is to understand the patterns in their behavior that may prevent more satisfying relationships."
