"One of the most difficult aspects of being a parent is seeing your child in pain and feeling like there is nothing that you can do to help. Whether they feel the pain of depression, anxiety, loss, trauma, divorce or social and academic pressure, my expertise is in helping children connect with their inner strength and confidence. I support families in developing the communication skills necessary to allow children to grow and move forward in healthy ways. I believe all children are unique, and my goal is to help bring out the best in your child."

To your surprise, you didn't didn't leave the past behind and find real contentment or successful relationships the way you wanted. Lack of trust in the world and others is still there. The ability to know your needs (um, I have needs?) and stay connected to yourself (ahem, feelings) is shot. Outwardly you're capable, though privately feel sensitive and alone.

Family Systems Therapists
Family Systems therapists in San Francisco view problems within the family as the result not of particular members' behaviors, but of the family's group dynamic. The family is seen as a complex system having its own language, roles, rules, beliefs, needs and patterns. The therapist helps each individual member understand how their childhood family operated, their role in that system, and how that experience has shaped their role in the current family. Therapists with the MFT credential are usually trained in Family Systems therapy.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in San Francisco are able to work with a wide range of issues.

For example, if you're seeking a marriage counselor in San Francisco you'll find that most therapists are trained in marriage counseling or couples counseling in San Francisco and couples therapy. And they welcome families for family counseling in San Francisco or family therapy in San Francisco.
