Michael J Smith, PsyD, Psychologist in San Francisco
Thank you for taking a moment to view my profile. I provide an authentic, caring and safe environment that allows for clients to access their own internal resources to do the all-important work of therapy. Evening and Saturday availability.
Therapy is ultimately about teaching you how to access your own internal reservoir of strength, confidence and wisdom. I will help you find your own solutions to everyday problems that work for you. Things don't have to be the way they've been. You have choices!
My work involves an interactive process directed toward addressing your expressed needs and desire for change, allowing for individuals to rediscover the strengths and skills they possess.Together we can build upon those resources to promote a mindful awareness that will allow you to heal.
