Omg Pastor Ama was absolutely amazing!!! We had a small ceremony in the Chapel of Our Lady in Presidio and she performed such a beautiful ceremony. From the moment she got there till the end of the ceremony she handled everything perfectly and made sure our Wedding went as smooth as possible. A wedding day is something you will remember forever and the memory she has given my fiancé and I as well as our families will definitely be unforgettable. If you need someone who will take the time out to understand you, accommodate to your dreams of your wedding day and speak so beautifully then she’s the one to go to!!! I’m so grateful to have found her because I can’t say enough how wonderful she made our special day! And she throws in a few laughs too that makes you feel even more better especially when all the nerves are kicking in as you stand up in front of everyone. Thank you again Pastor Ama for all you kind words, the laughs, and creating a memorable day that captured all my dreams! :)
Maureen is a very caring therapist. She is extremely professional in her approach and always works towards her clients best interest. Her experience covers many areas of clinical issues. Maureen is dedicated and committed to helping people live more fulfilled meaningful lives.
He was wonderful! He is very professional and seeks to help the couple all along the planning process through to your wedding day. What's stands out is how much he truly cares about you. You can tell he does this with the intention of helping couples. He also did premarital counseling for us and we truly made a friend in him. He is a real friend who is there whenever you need him most. When a mistake was made on our marriage license (not his mistake), he was there to help work it out for us without hesitation. Overall, he was knowledgeable, helpful, and truly cares about the people he works with. We were lucky to have him as our counselor and wedding officiant. We highly suggest him!
Diana has helped me work through some tough family issues--she listens with compassion, helps me clarify the issue, and provides me with the confidence and tools to address it. She possesses a unique blend of warmth and directness. I can't recommend her enough!
Matthew has been a really great counselor to work with. He brings empathy and excitement to our relationship counseling sessions, and provides much needed insight to moments when we get caught up in our historic relational patterns. Our sessions are a good mix of hard work and play. Matthew always has ideas and exercises we can do to work with the material that arises. He is communicative and professional.
Dr. Beth offers just the right amount of love, compassion and information to create lasting transformation. She is so sharp. She really saw me for who I am and took me to the next level in my own growth. It has improved my relationship with my kids, my family, my friends and even increased my effectiveness in my work! Thank you Dr. Beth!
Alison is amazing! The most important things I look for in a counselor is someone who is well educated, practices what they teach and is compassionate with their clients. Alison is all of the above, she really knows her stuff, I feel safe and well attended to when she works with me and she gives me undivided attention which I always appreciate. She has an amazing way of working on emotional issues that could be holding you back from making progress in your life. She has a deep understanding of what it takes to heal and clear old material that is no longer relevant to living your best life and she guides you in a way that is kind, loving and safe. I honor her so much and feel so grateful to have her in my life!
I have worked with Don Waxman for almost two years and found him to be the most effective therapist I have used. Don has the ability to be empathetic and directive in a way that works for me. His use of somatic tools with me has be dramatic in my self exploration and healing. He is very knowledgeable and creative and has great set of tools to help you get to your goals.
Robert is an excellent therapist. He is always professional and dependable. I will most definitely use his services again. I found him extremely helpful.
After meeting Rev Gil and Robyn about 10 years ago, I had an intuitive knowing that Rev. Gil was to be my practitioner (spiritual counselor) and began working with him shortly thereafter. It was my first experience of working with a practitioner and, ultimately, the process was a significant contributor in my desire to pursue my own practitioner license. I found Rev. Gil to be an exceptional practitioner. He consistently acknowledged my process and journey while staying anchored in spiritual principle so I could create the shifts I was seeking. He also never hesitated to call me on my stuff, always from a place of love, so I could see how being stuck in my story was not serving me. Overall, I found the process of working with him in this way to be incredibly transformative and fundamental to my subsequent spiritual journey, so much so that I enrolled in the spiritual counselor training program myself the following fall. I worked with both Rev Gil and Robyn during my training and found them both to be wonderful mentors as I continued to explore my spiritual path. I can't recommend their work strongly enough!
I had always heard of this type of counseling but had never participated in one. Diana supported me through five sessions of Shamanic Counseling about a month ago, and it was a wonderful and productive experience. Diana was very professional during the entire time, always communicating in a clear way and always providing a safe space for me to ask any questions. Most of all she always made me feel that we were working together, as a team. Like in any counseling at the beginning I felt a little "shy" to express myself, but Diana's gentle voice and soft energy allowed me to unfold in a comfortable way never feeling judged by her. Of course this is a type of work that doesn't really have an end, but the first 5 sessions I completed with Diana were very helpful. I definitely feel our work together reached deep levels of consciousness and brought out useful results that I am currently using in present time. At the end of our work, Diana was generous enough to provide me with the tools so that - if I wanted to- I could continue working with my spirit guides independently. I am honored to have worked with Diana on such an intimate experience, and I would do it again any time.

I am a survivor who God has saved to help other people. I have been homeless, divorced, unemployed, and have lived a dysfunctional life, but now I have been academically trained, have 19 years of sobriety, and love working with people.
I provide counseling for individuals, couples and families who are struggling with transitions. You can explore developmental stages and dynamic techniques with a seasoned therapist of 20 years. This includes stress reduction, communication styles, family of origin and life cycle techniques.
Within each of us abides the potential to feel good about ourselves, our work and our relationships. Tapping into this potential, accessing it and learning to apply it generously to everyday life can bring us great fulfillment and success in all of these areas. I work with my clients to determine and address the things that hinder their ability to have a lasting and true sense of well being such as stress, depression, low self-esteem, self-defeating patterns, past trauma and toxic relationships. We work together actively on turning these obstacles into new, positive behaviors and self-knowledge.
I have gained a variety of experience working with a wide variety of issues, from ages 5 to 65. I have also gained a significant amount of experience in the corporate world and understand the challenges that today's Individual, Couple faces when addressed with pressure of work and when it carries over to the home relationships and vice versa
Counseling and coaching might look like they're the same but they have different rules, purposes, skills and structures. Much like in sports coaching, the client can see the goal, and with a sideline spot, the coach can offer a whole field perspective of the plays as they are happening as well as give feedback on what they observe with regard to technique, strategy, and form. Coaching is not a therapy. Coaching views clients as creative, resourceful, and whole. The client is the expert at his/her own life and sets his/her own agenda and goals. Working together, the coaching relationship empowers the client, builds awareness, deepens learning, and allows the client to take effective action toward their goals and visions. What I personally bring to my coaching clients is my keen sense of observation (which some people may refer to as intuition), my curiosity, integrity, passion, and heart, all in support of you. I often mix in a bit of consulting, offering information or resources that might help further your goals. Having completed both a master's degree in counseling and intensive coaches training with the Coaches Training Institute, I would say that there is a tremendous overlap in theory and practice between the two. My style of coaching employs a mix of coaching practices using the best strategies, in my opinion, from positive psychology, solution-focused Adlerian and Rogerian approaches of counseling.
I have been providing high-quality psychotherapy and life coaching in the SF Bay Area for the past 22 years. My passion is helping people discover their capacity in solving their own problems.
I like to think that it's because I bring humor to my work. Humor allows us to identify difficulties or challenges apart from ourselves and have more clarity overcoming them.
