My name is Kate Franza and I am a licensed therapist located in San Francisco. Originally from New York, I received my degree from Fordham University. My practice is grounded in my community mental health background, with a focus on LGBTQ issues, anxiety, depression and substance use. My clients experience relationship struggles,trauma, chronic relapse, and many are interested in exploring and understanding their sexuality and gender identity. I use a harm reduction approach and I draw from a range of therapeutic modalities, including cognitive and mindfulness-based skill building.

As a licensed therapist based in San Francisco, I help individuals and couples dive beneath the surface-level issues to discover the underlying causes of their distress. Many of the men and women who choose to work with me are in the grips of anxiety, depression, addiction, grief, or relationship challenges. Many are highly motivated professionals that are self-reliant and achievement-focused, but often struggle with self-defeating thoughts and patterns that keep them feeling stuck.

You're looking for a therapist and you're wondering if I might be a good fit. It might help to know that I'm a straightforward, perceptive, and non-judgmental practitioner.

I'll ask questions and engage in dialogue with you throughout the process. By providing thoughtful, individual focus to you as you tackle patterns of living that no longer work, we'll discover new areas for growth and healing.

Psychotherapy is a personal experience. I treat and support individuals and couples who are struggling with worries, sadness, and relationship difficulties, or who feel "stuck" in their lives in some way. I also have special training in helping individuals cope with medical illnesses, grief and loss, and trauma. As well, I work with high-achieving individuals who are striving for balance and personal satisfaction in their lives. I work collaboratively and compassionately to reduce current distressing symptoms and to examine long-standing patterns. My approach is interpersonal and psychodynamic.

Pursuing therapy takes courage, and it can feel intimidating to enter into a new space, without a clear sense of direction. I believe that the trust and relationship between us is the first step to a successful therapeutic environment. It is important to me that we take the time to build and foster a collaborative, safe, and supportive dynamic for you to explore, heal, and grow. Through our work together, I hope to support you in exploring what makes life worth living, building insight, developing creative coping skills, enhancing connection with others, and instilling self-compassion into your life.

I specialize in self-esteem and working with attachment-related trauma, which is sometimes referred to as complex trauma or inner child wounding. This can lead to anxiety, depression, unhealthy behaviors, and a cycle of unfulfilling pattens or relationships. I help you connect with your inner world (feelings, needs, values) and explore how past experiences have shaped who you are. Through the safety of a compassionate and nurturing therapeutic relationship, we'll get curious about what is holding you back, define what is important to you, explore any unhelpful patterns you may be stuck in, and start trying new ways of coping.

As a seasoned depth psychologist formally trained in exploring the depths of being human, I will work collaboratively with you to get to the root of what ails you. I find cultivating an affirming, caring stance allows an individual to move more readily towards healing and the resolution of problems and difficulties. Consequently, you can be the person you want to be thereby realizing greater personal agency and generating more successful relationships. The heart and soul of my practice involves working with chronic shame, gender and sexuality issues, life transitions, grief, loss, trauma, dissociated self-states, self exploration.

Video and Phone Sessions available to all California Residents - A lot has changed about life as we know it. As someone who usually is able to manage, support others, and be on top of things you may now be feeling overwhelmed, exhausted, and even unsure what to do. The ways you know to take care and succeed are not available now or have deeply changed. People may even be reaching to you for help. Yet, you yourself are feeling scared, worried and isolated. You also need a safe space to process, make sense of what's happening, and only have to pay attention to you. I can help.

Are you struggling with relationships? Are you experiencing the many ways substance use can create pain, whether for you or someone you love? Are you living with a mental health condition that requires support? Identifying limiting beliefs and unhelpful behaviors is an essential step to living an emotionally stable life, whatever difficult crossroads you may be experiencing. Often, emotional recovery begins with healing long-buried childhood trauma. My goal in therapy with you is to be your guide on this healing journey. You don't have to do it alone. And I believe relief can sometimes happen as early as the first session.

In my practice, I strive to create relationships with my clients that foster their growth and help them achieve their full potential. I value empathy and unconditional positive regard toward my clients. Understanding is called for when someone is hurting, confused, anxious, alienated, or doubtful of their self-worth. The gentle, empathic approach provides insight and healing. I respect the courage and vulnerability to come to therapy and try my best to take good care of my client's trust in me.

Being driven to succeed can be a mixed blessing. On the one hand, your strong work ethic and drive towards accomplishment have probably gotten you to where you are today—possibly even in the face of major challenges or hardships. On the other hand, when our self-worth is defined by our productivity, it can feel very fragile. Anxiety, chronic stress, burnout, and difficulty prioritizing ourselves or our relationships is often the result. I work with professionals and students who are navigating these challenges to develop healthier, more balanced relationships with themselves, their careers, and the important people in their lives.

My therapeutic style is grounded in a humanistic approach 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.
