"First of all, I want to congratulate you on making the decision to start therapy. Unlike what some people believe, that going to therapy implies that you are “weak”, the exact opposite is true. Making the decision to actively look at your life and face and overcome the challenges you are facing takes courage and strength! I specialize in working with high-functioning, young adults/adults, and it is a true pleasure to see more and more people who embrace the idea that therapy is a healthy, proactive way to learn to listen to their heart and take steps to make changes and create lives that they will truly enjoy."

"Choosing to begin psychotherapy opens yourself to the experience of self-discovery, reflection, and growth. This decision may feel exhilarating or scary, as self-work often requires courage and a willingness to examine aspects of life which may have gone unattended for some time. But truly, beginning psychotherapy reflects an inner desire and commitment to enhance the parts of yourself and your life which are working well, and to explore, and ultimately make changes in the parts you would like to be different."

"Many individuals and couples approach me for therapy feeling they've hit a road block in their lives and are confused and frustrated in their attempts to grow beyond it. They are often uncertain - both about their capacity to change and about whether therapy can help. Couples may be hopeful or discouraged about transforming their repeated patterns of conflict or distance, but know that significant changes are needed if their relationship is to regain a sense of joy and strength. The art of therapy involves reaching beyond solving a particular problem and exploring the opportunites for growth embedded within it."

Psychodynamic Therapists
Psychodynamic therapy in San Francisco, also known as insight-oriented therapy, evolved from Freudian psychoanalysis. Like adherents of psychoanalysis, psychodynamic therapists believe that bringing the unconscious into conscious awareness promotes insight and resolves conflict. But psychodynamic therapy is briefer and less intensive than psychoanalysis and also focuses on the relationship between the therapist and the client, as a way to learn about how the client relates to everyone in their life.

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.
