My Approach to Helping
" Insanity = a perfectly rational adjustment to an insane world " R. D. Laing
Welcome! If you are struggling right now - be assured this is your clarion call to a more authentic, liberated existence. I am Dr. Coffelt - a licensed psychologist in private practice in San Francisco for nearly 15 years. I've held positions at both UCSF and Stanford Medical Center and studied with shamans around the world ... my approach is a unique integration of ancient wisdom and holistic healing !
I have a Jungian-humanistic approach and genuinely believe that healing and self-actualization are both possible *under the right conditions* Mine is a warm, highly attuned and deep presence and while I am committed to listening and reflecting back your strengths, I am also unafraid to point out the aspects of your unconscious that are "hiding" in the shadows .
My specialties include existential angst, somatic healing for trauma, depth-oriented addiction recovery, queer identity and artist specific issues (e.g., deepening your creative practice, clarifying your artistic voice, creative blocks) as I am a professional abstract painter as well.
I encourage you to reach out to me with any questions you may have about my approach and or experience. I always view the first few sessions as a mutual "experiment" where we can both feel into whether our "vibe" is the right match. So while I do prefer long-term commitments and deeper work, you are not locked in to anything before you are ready!
