"Are you over 50 years old? I specialize in working with older adults, older couples, and seniors. As we age, we often begin to experience feelings of sadness, anxiety, loss of meaning, or loss of joy both as an individual and in our relationships. Doctors are quick to hand out antidepressants, but often this is not a sign of depression. Instead, I believe these feelings come out as we struggle with the many challenges we’re facing. Life can be very difficult, the loss of friends and loved ones, transitions, illness, divorce, career changes, and more can lead to a sense of sadness, anxiety and a loss of meaning or purpose. "

Family / Marital Therapists
Therapists in Inner Richmond, San Francisco using the techniques of 'family therapy' work with families or couples both together and individually to help them improve their communication skills, build on the positive aspects of their relationships, and repair harmful or negative dynamics.

As an approach to therapy, 'family therapy' (also referred to as family systems therapy, marital therapy, marriage therapy, marriage and family therapy, marital therapy and family counseling) views change in terms of the systems of interaction between family members or couples.

Family relationships often affect psychological well-being and, regardless of the origin of an issue, or whether it may be the "individual" or "family" who is presenting it, involving the family in the solution can be of great benefit.
