Ellen S. Brown L.M.F.T., LMFT, Marriage & Family Therapist in San Francisco
I offer a warm, supportive, interactive and non-judgmental atmosphere in which to help you deal with issues that are troubling you. Whether you are struggling with depression, anxiety, relationship issues, job and career concerns, substance abuse, or the problems of life's inevitable twists, turns and stresses, my 30 years of clinical experience provide a depth of understanding to help you facilitate the changes you want to make. I work with individuals and couples with a wide variety of problems that affect their relationships, functioning and growth.
I strive to understand each person's unique life experiences, and do not pre-judge them or try to provide cookie-cutter (or "one-size-fits-all") solutions. I am an excellent listener. I offer both short-term, problem-focused counseling, as well as long-term therapy.
In addition to my years in private practice as a licensed therapist, I have a prior background in business, giving me an understanding of the workings of the corporate/business world. I have helped many clients who were struggling with the pressures of their work life.
