Life is full of challenges that may require support from a professional therapist. We will discuss your specific need during your initial phone call with Maryellen P. Mullin, LMFT, founder of San Francisco Family Therapy.
We will work with a wide range of emotional, cognitive and behavioral issues for children, adolescents/teens, adults, couples and families. If you or your family decide to move forward with therapy after an initial consultation, your clinician will work with you to develop an appropriate course of treatment. Treatment is supportive and may involve learning how to:
understand and grow your relationship with someone (a partner, child, parent, etc.)
improve communication within a relationship or family
develop or refine skills, such as coping skills, communication skills, parenting skills, etc.
manage life transitions, such as loss of a relationship, becoming a parent, marriage, divorce, etc.
address experiences of depression, anxiety, emotional wound(s) or trauma(s)
cope with loss, grief
work on changing a specific behavior or reaction
Therapy may be a brief process of several sessions to deal with an immediate issue, or it may be a more extended process to deal with more complicated or entrenched patterns that interfere with you or your family's life.
Therapy consists of regular weekly or bi-weekly appointments. At San Francisco Family Therapy, our therapeutic approach and treatment draws from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), EMDR, Behavioral, Psychodynamic, Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT/Tapping) and Family Systems orientations. If making it to the office is challenging, our CEO and Founder, Maryellen Mullin, LMFT, offers video sessions on a HIPPA compliant platform - Doxy.me.
