Esther Ehrensaft, PhD, Psychologist in San Francisco
Most people seek out a psychologist when they have truly done their best to resolve their difficulties on their own. When you can't see your own emotional blind spots, feeling stuck and distressed can ripple through many areas of your life. Perhaps this is your first time seeking out a therapist, or perhaps you are returning to psychotherapy for a fresh perspective. As a psychologist with over 17 years of experience, I have a seasoned understanding of what leads people to hit roadblocks in their lives, in areas including work, school, marriage, parenting, family, and intimate relationships.
I offer therapy and consultation for adults, couples, and children. I have a particular expertise in attachment issues, and specialize in helping to resolve early trauma and grief in adults and children. I am also specialized in the area of adoption, for adult adoptees as well as children.
My approach is thoughtful, honest, empathic and respectful. I invite you to visit my website to learn more about me, my approach to treatment, and areas of expertise to see whether we would be a good fit.
