Susan Allen, MA, LMFT, Marriage & Family Therapist in San Francisco
My approach to therapy is warm, engaged and interactive with a focus on helping people to cope with life changes. Together we will process transitions and explore patterns that may be holding you back in your life or relationships. It is my intention to help you meet your goals and ultimately restore a sense of connection and balance in your life.
Areas of focus include adjusting to life changes, understanding and reducing anxiety and depression, relationships, loss and grief, and identity exploration. I have a specialty in reproductive and maternal mental health, supporting women and couples through infertility and pregnancy/postpartum.
I believe strongly in our capacity for change and growth. I welcome adults, couples and adolescents to my practice. Please contact me to set up an initial phone consultation to see if you would be interested in working together.
