Elizabeth Gayner

Psychologist, PsyD


2019 17th Street
San Francisco, California 94103
(415) 723-4161

I am a licensed clinical psychologist with over 20 years experience providing psychotherapy, particularly in the areas women's issues, perinatal mood and anxiety disorders, and infertility. I am committed to helping women navigate difficult transitions and identities in their life, toward becoming more balanced, empowered and self-compassionate individuals. Many women I work with struggle with starting a family, miscarriage or loss, depression or anxiety, difficulties with nursing or transitioning back to work, high expectations, perfectionism, trauma, divorce, and difficulty finding their voice.

I am also passionate about helping young woman who are struggling with adulting, relationships, boundaries, and family of origin issues. Our culture gives us distorted messages, encourages unrealistic expectations and minimizes the effect of the above on our mood, stress level, and self-esteem. This leaves many women feeling inadequate and alone.

In a professional, supportive and collaborative therapy experience, we can address and work through your concerns together. Please visit me at www.drelizabethgayner.com to learn more or email me to set up a free telephone consultation.
