About

I treat adults as well as adolescents and children, most frequently through individual therapy. I also work with couples. I work with people with a wide range of problems and especially enjoy working with people experiencing anxiety in relationships or at work . I also enjoy working with people who are unhappy and don't know why, and people who are repeating self-defeating patterns they feel unable to change. Meeting with a well-trained and experienced therapist can be a powerful and effective way of strengthening one's confidence and developing a personal sense of control over one's life.
In addition to working with adults and couples, I also work with children of all ages and with adolescents. Many of the children I see exhibit problems paying attention and controlling their impulses, which interfere with making friends and with doing well in school while others struggle with anxiety and depression.
I am a clinical psychologist with over 30 years experience working with adults, adolescents and children. . I also see couples and consult with parents regularly on parenting issues. I have offices in both San Francisco and in Marin County. If you would like more information , please see my website at drbertfaerstein.com
