Terrence Higgins, MFT, Marriage & Family Therapist in San Francisco
Frustrated? Feel you are getting nowhere in your efforts to fix some emotional snag? Feel you are caught in a loop that has left you depressed or anxious? Maybe both? I help individuals and couples work through their rough patches. By using proven methods based on research I have helped resolve many issues without lengthy treatment. Being empathically present with clients to ensure their safety and comfort is a core value for me. To offer busy people flexibility I have four locations: two in San Francisco (Laurel Heights and the Financial District) and two in Berkeley (Downtown and South Berkeley).
Emotionally Focused Therapy, Gottman Method, Process-Oriented Psychology and 45-years of mindfulness practice all inform my approach. But, really, the key to how I help is by listening carefully to my clients. Working together we create the possibility for better outcomes by empowering you to make more effective choices.
All lifestyles and cultural backgrounds are welcomed in my practice. I schedule sessions to start from 9:00 AM to 8:00 PM at the Berkeley offices and 10:30 AM to 8:00 PM at the San Francisco locations. A session runs a full 60-minute hour.
