When you're suffering, you want a specialistHere are the areas where we have the greatest depth of experience
Research has shown that therapy is most effective when a client is matched with a therapist who has skill and expertise in the area that caused the patient to seek help.
At SF Stress, we focus on a small number of areas so we can hone our skills to give you the best possible care.
Here is where we are at our best:
Anxiety & Stress
You may already know there is a lot of anxiety in our culture. Anxiety disorders affect nearly 40 million adults in the US every year. So if you’re struggling in this area, you’re not alone.
What you may not know, however, is that anxiety disorders are highly treatable. The right approach has a great chance of giving you lasting relief — even without medication.
At SF Stress, we’ve helped many people just like you get their lives back.
Work demands can be overwhelming. In the US, our work culture is fast-paced and intense. It is often a struggle to keep stress under control and maintain balance between work and other important areas of life.
We understand the unique challenges of the office. We’ve helped hundreds of professionals learn how to manage the stress that comes along with the job so they can find success in their careers without burning out.
When things are going well, an intimate relationship is one of the best things in life. When you’re struggling, however, life can feel almost unbearable.
We come alongside to help you diagnose the problems in your relationship and find strategies to address them. You can finally feel like you are moving in the right direction.
We know that sexual intimacy is often an important component in relationship problems. Our skilled sex therapists can help you reconnect and reignite your passion for one another.
