Daniel Yu, MSW, LCSW, Clinical Social Work/Therapist in San Francisco
It's likely that you are here because you are in some kind of distress. I draw on over 15 years of training and deep listening to help you understand your difficulties and find relief. I also teach psychotherapy to students and new therapists. I am compassionate, direct, and practical. I will tell you what I think the problem is, and how we can proceed together to assist you in feeling better. Individual therapy can help you feel stronger, more resilient, and become more of who you are as a person.
You may also be reading this because you and your spouse or partner are experiencing relationship problems. In addition to individual psychotherapy with adolescents and adults, I also provide couples therapy , as well as mediation and divorce related coaching when couples are legally or informally separating.
I offer a free phone consultation to give you the opportunity to assess if I am a good match for your situation.
