We believe you can thrive

So we've built a team and process to help you get there

There are lots of therapists out there. Unfortunately, finding one who will actually be able to help you isn’t easy.

At SF Stress, we’re committed to results and built our practice with that goal in mind. We were founded by experts in therapy who know what it takes to help you get your life back on track.

We focus on three things as the foundation for great results:

Expert Staff

The best care begins with the best practitioners. Many online therapy practices are self-selected groups of generalists who pay for a listing.

We’re different. Our specialists are carefully selected by our Clinical Leadership Team to provide you with the highest level of expertise.

Personalized Matching

Finding the right therapist for you is crucial. You need someone whose expertise matches the issue you face and with whom you feel comfortable.

That’s why we start with a free consultation with a Care Coordinator to find out about your needs and match you with a therapist who is most likely to be able to help.

If the initial meeting doesn’t feel right, we’ll help you find another therapist – no charge.

Find your match

Evidence-Based Care

Many of our clients come from a business context where decisions are driven by data.

We believe psychological care should be sensitive to the data, too. We use approaches that have been rigorously studied and found to be useful in helping people get better. Your time is too important to waste on unproven techniques.
