As a licensed psychotherapist in San Francisco, I specialize in individual psychotherapy and couples counseling.
The Value of Psychotherapy in the Midst of Struggle
Difficult feelings can be a gateway for personal growth. I see many students, artists, successful professionals, and couples struggling with depression and anxiety, trauma, problems in relationships, and life transitions. My approach is to help you gain awareness of and explore those difficult thoughts, feelings, and past experiences which prevent you from being comfortable with who you would like to be, what you want, and the kinds of relationships that you want to have with others.
Approach to Psychotherapy
In my San Francisco practice I specialize in psychodynamic psychotherapy and believe that by reclaiming lost or unknown pieces of ourselves, we can grow towards greater wholeness and satisfaction within our lives. Our suffering and uncertainties can actually be in service of realizing our goals.
Therapy can be goal oriented and together, we will identify potential areas of growth for you as well as ways to measure your progress. My style is both compassionate and kind, direct and engaging. You are welcome to contact me for a complimentary initial consultation in San Francisco by emailing me, Joshua M. Simmons, Psy.D., or by phone at (415) 820-1554.
