San Francisco Sex & Couples Therapy

Abby Volk Neuberg LMFT

San Francisco Sex Therapy, Trauma, Abuse, and Relationship Counseling & Individual Psychotherapy

 
 
 My passion is working with people healing from trauma. I believe that you are always on a path towards growth and self-realization, and therapy can be a place for guidance, clarity, and empowerment. I am an engaged and compassionate therapist who creates a comfortable place to share thoughts that may feel shameful or insignificant. I also believe that therapy can be fun, exciting, and freeing. 
I hold a safe place for you even when you feel you cannot trust others and often place your deepest desires last. My passion is to help you dissolve the stories that you learned about yourself and the world, which stop you from having the confidence and self-worth that you know you deserve to feel. 
Most importantly, I believe that therapy is a place to enhance your personal strengths and grow your capacity to feel happiness, contentment, and personal meaning.
