Therapists, Psychologists, and Counselors in San Francisco
Tara Griffith, MA, MFT
Founder | Executive Director | Therapist + Coach
Hi, I’m Tara, and my job is to help people become the best version of themselves! I’m passionate about the work I do and believe in the power of positivity, connection, and change. I provide psychotherapy, life coaching, and bariatric coaching services.
style + philosophy
First and foremost, I believe that it’s the relationship between the therapist and client that creates the foundation for change. My style is accepting, hopeful, interactive, and humorous at times. I offer a highly personalized approach (blending psychotherapy and coaching techniques) tailored to fit my client’s unique needs, personality, and preferences. People aren’t one size fits all and therapy/coaching shouldn’t be either!
I also believe that you are the ultimate expert on your own life. It’s my job, however, to ask the right questions and act as your guide. I’ll help you identify your strengths and talents, develop self-awareness, and gain confidence where you need it. I’ll challenge you at times and provide feedback on the thoughts and behaviors that may be keeping you stuck.contact me
Lynsie Seely, PhDc, MFT
Assistant Director | Psychotherapist
Hi, I’m Lynsie and it is my hope for you that you are thriving and feeling fulfilled in your life. As we each travel down our unique journeys, we all find ourselves facing various challenges, transitions, and stuck points along the way. During these times it can be valuable to have some support—especially if you happen to be feeling worn-down, not like yourself, or unsatisfied with the way things are going. I’m dedicated to providing you with a safe and caring space for self-exploration/learning and practical tools to empower you so that you can step into your full wellness and enjoy life as the vibrant person you are!
style + philosophy
My approach is empathic, collaborative, and holistic, utilizing practices from somatic and depth psychology, cognitive behavior therapy, and mindfulness. Working this way honors your whole experience and with practice allows for growth to occur on all levels: body, mind, and soul—maximizing your whole-body wellness.
Somatic Psychotherapy is a body-oriented way of working that encourages self- engagement to include the body and its natural processes. It honors that our minds and bodies are not separate but make up a whole from which we directly experience life. By increasing our awareness of our bodies, we can form a relationship with ourselves in a deeper way that opens up greater possibilities for growth, supports learning and change, and allows us to directly access our spark of aliveness.contact me
Gina Delucca, PsyD
Licensed Clinical Psychologist
Hi, I’m Gina, and it is my pleasure to help you live the life you want for yourself. I am a licensed clinical psychologist with experience working with people facing a wide range of issues, including depression, anxiety, eating disorders, trauma, grief, stress, work-life balance, low self-esteem, interpersonal issues, life transitions, personal growth/identity issues, and chronic medical conditions.
I am very passionate and devoted to my work and believe whole-heartedly in the value and benefits of psychotherapy. Therapy can be an excellent place for you to gain insight, express and process painful emotions, learn practical skills to handle life’s challenges, make positive changes in your life, and achieve personal growth. My approach to therapy is individualized and collaborative, and I offer both short-term and open-ended therapy.
style + philosophy
My therapeutic style is integrative and draws upon techniques from a variety of approaches, including cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), solution-focused therapy, and person-centered therapy. I aim to tailor my approach in order to best meet your individual needs and preferences.
Above anything else, I believe that the connection between therapist and client is the most powerful tool for change and healing. Through the therapeutic relationship, I strive to provide a safe, compassionate, and accepting space where you can openly express yourself, process your thoughts and emotions, and explore the underlying issues that may be causing and maintaining your current struggles. As your therapist, I will help you identify realistic goals, encourage introspection, emphasize and build upon your strengths, and provide honest yet gentle feedback.contact me
Veronica Encinas, AMFT
Associate Marriage and Family Therapist
Hi, I’m Veronica, and my passion and dedication to this work lies in the idea that asking for help is not a sign of weakness. Everyone will experience some frictions or challenges at some point in their life and need support. I feel called to be an empathic guide to people during such times.
style + philosophy
I work somatically and relationally, meaning I hold that the mind and body are intrinsically connected. I welcome clients to tell their stories, histories, and important aspects of their life. I also invite them to become aware of how they feel as they are sharing with me by tuning into their bodies. I welcome them to become more conscious of their five senses–to tune into their body sensations, gestures, breath, emotions, etc. Together, overtime, we discover significant and often transformative information about core patterns, beliefs, and ways of relating to themselves, others, and the world.
Additionally, I am a passionate advocate for social justice and equality for all, which also informs my work and the ways in which I am called to support people.
