Our marriage counselors, couples therapists, and individual psychotherapists are trained in at least one of the following modalities providing the most progressive professional mental health services san francisco has to offer.

AEDP (ACCELERATED EXPERIENTIAL DYNAMIC PSYCHOTHERAPY) FOR COUPLES

GESTALT THERAPY

The goal is focusing on whatever arises in the here and now including bringing awareness to the many parts within you. The belief is that healing happens in present moment awareness between therapist and clients. Couples will learn healthier communication, conflict resolution, how to get their needs met, and rebuilding trust and mutual respect. 

PSYCHODYNAMIC PSYCHOTHERAPY

The Goal is to help couples develop self-awareness and understanding of the influence of the past on the present behavior. Also known as insight-oriented therapy focuses on unconscious processes as they are manifested in a person's present behavior. 

EFT (EMOTIONALLY FOCUSED COUPLES THERAPY)

 A highly effective form of therapy that focuses on emotions and attachment needs.  The goal is to help clients identify, explore, experience, make sense of, and manage their emotional experience.  Research has shown that 70-75% of couples can move from distress to recovery with EFT Therapy.
