"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."

Solution Focused Brief (SFBT) Therapists
Solution-focused therapy in San Francisco, sometimes called "brief therapy," focuses on what clients would like to achieve through therapy rather than on their troubles or mental health issues. The therapist will help the client envision a desirable future, and then map out the small and large changes necessary for the client to undergo to realize their vision. The therapist will seize on any successes the client experiences, to encourage them to build on their strengths rather than dwell on their problems or limitations.

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.
