Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
Thank you for visiting my site. At times we all need help sorting life’s complexities. I offer professional, skilled psychotherapy to address the challenges that life brings all of us. Substance use issues, gay men’s health and relationship issues, couple’s and HIV/AIDS, are all subjects in which have many years of experience. Whatever issues bring you to therapy, I strive to assist my clients in living up to their fullest potential. The therapeutic relationship is a collaborative dance between client and therapist, the goal being unblocking obstacles so that you may thrive, not just survive and becoming an active participant in steering the course of your life rather than being a passive passenger. In this effort, I act as coach, tour guide, and confidant as the need arises. To this end compassion, encouragement, education and oftentimes humor are utilized in the therapeutic endeavor to foster growth and development. Please visit my website: www.sanfrantherapy.com to find out more about me and how I work.
