I have come to realization that we all need tools and guidance to navigate through life. As a therapist, I see myself as an ally who will help you to better understand your own choices and to cope with the changes in your life. As human beings, we value happiness, and we reject feeling sad, angry, nervous. As we experience these “negative feelings “, we become frustrated with ourselves, even angry. Nobody wants to be anything but happy. What if we were able to accept those “other feelings” for what they are...Therapy helps to better understand the moments in which changes seem overwhelming and unnecessary. Therapy helps to simply “sit with those feelings”, no judgement; just observing. I can help you to be in a place in your life where you can feel more comfortable with who you are, where you can become more aware of your capacities and more accepting of your own struggles. You are the expert on your own life. My job is only to assist you through therapy in your journey to self discover, acceptance and letting go.....

I invite you to visit my website drehrhart.com for a more complete sense of how I can help you, or you and your partner, who I am, and how I work. In short though, if we work together we would explore the dynamic terrain of your relationships - your relationships to your emotions, your thoughts, your behavior, to your idea of self, and to others. This is done in a relationship of genuine curiosity and compassion, so that change, in place of judgement, is fostered. Eventually, this productive and curious environment or relationship that we foster together, can be internalized and taken with you as a tool for your life journey.

Beginning therapy is not easy. Finding the right therapist in San Francisco can feel daunting. Examining one’s difficulties requires courage and resolve. Feelings of reluctance and apprehension are common and understandable. But, therapy is a long-term investment in yourself and in your desire to live a fuller, more satisfying life. With a lot of effort and patience, the therapeutic process can pays off. If you’re interested in starting therapy I recommend we have two or three initial meetings to see how it feels to talk and think together.

How did you decide it was time to look for a therapist? It’s usually emotional pain - anxiety, sadness/depression, grief, relationship problems - that brings you here. And addressing the source of that pain is the start of our journey. We’d begin with a 15/20 minute phone call where you lay out what you’re dealing with and I give you some sense of how we would begin to tackle it. Most therapists offer this and it’s a really solid way to feel into whether you want to work with someone. I have seen over and over that the pain that brings someone to therapy - if you work with it - is actually a gift.

I tend not to view people's issues or concerns as a form of pathology or neurosis, but rather as particular problems in living. I see each person as genuinely unique, and so avoid cookie-cutter approaches. My role is to help individuals and couples work through problems as effectively and efficiently as possible, in a way that builds confidence, self-respect, hope, and, ultimately, a fresh way of living life.
