Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
Hello, I am Tara Griffith and I hope that you will always feel welcome in my office! My full-time practice in San Francisco specializes in both child and adult counseling. Whether I work with you, your loved one, or your relationship, we will begin by setting goals for treatment. My approach is accepting, hopeful, creative, and sometimes humorous. I use different approaches (blending psychotherapy and coaching techniques) according to my client's needs, preferences and age. When working with children, I generally prefer art and play therapies and involve parents and other supplementary supports as appropriate. My specialty areas include: life transitions, self-esteem and self-acceptance, body image, obesity/weight management, bariatric surgery, disordered eating, issues of childhood/adolescence, attachment, depression, anxiety/stress management, goal-setting, mindlfulness, and healthy communication. I have a BS in Psychology from the University of California, San Diego and an MA in Marriage and Family Therapy from the University of San Diego.
