My name is Sarah Kwan and I am a Licensed Psychologist located in breathtaking San Francisco. My adult psychotherapy practice focuses on women's mental health, with an eye towards the multiple, and often competing, roles that we navigate throughout a lifetime. Making sense of personal identity within these roles can often fall by the wayside, impacting both emotional and physical well-being. I treat a number of challenges that women might face ranging from dating, relationships and career challenges to family dynamics, trauma and cultural identity.

My adolescent and teen practice is geared towards supporting boys and girls as they strive to meet increasing social, emotional and academic demands. The goal of therapy is to provide a judgment-free space in which your child can build the skills and resilience to lead a happy, healthy life.

I draw from a range of therapeutic modalities, including attachment theory and cognitive- and mindfulness-based skills building. While I tailor my approach to each individual, underlying this eclectic, client-centered orientation is a commitment to cultural competence and intercultural awareness.
