Market Street Center for Psychotherapy
The more we learn about the neurological development and functioning of the brain, the more we have come to realize that humans create their own perception and understanding of reality. By developing a mindfulness practice we can change perceptions and our response to every day situations and events.
The Market Street Center for Psychotherapy is dedicated to the application of mindfulness in psychotherapy through which we provide a safe and supportive environment for healing and change.
Jon Kabat-Zinn, Ph.D., the creator of Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction Therapy, defines mindfulness as “paying attention in a particular way, on purpose, in the present moment, and non-judgmentally”. Mindfulness practices help to change the relationship we have with our thoughts, feelings, and bodily sensations.
Each of our therapists brings their own approach, skills and specializations to the art and science of psychotherapy. We share in common an interest in integrating the theory and practice of mindfulness with Western approaches in psychotherapy.
We endeavor to uphold the highest ethical and legal standards, and do not condone or engage in discrimination of any kind. We work to provide effective and affordable mental health services in the San Francisco Bay Area.

Out, out, brief candle! Life’s but a […]Read The Full Post
