Deborah E Weisinger
Dr. Deborah Weisinger is a Licensed Psychologist with an office in San Francisco, CA. She pursued post graduate training to become a Psychoanalyst to enhance her clinical capacity to provide in-depth psychotherapy. Deborah works with those who are experiencing life transitions, whether beginning, evaluating or ending relationships, career changes, decisions to return to school, cross cultural issues or facing unexpected losses. She pays particular attention to the ways in which these transitions can impact patients emotionally and experientially, often bringing up feelings of self doubt, anxiety and depression along with hope and excitement about what's to come. She works with individuals in close partnership, discussing goals for treatment as well as treatment approach to foster a good fit for each individual's experience in therapy.
Deborah's approach is based upon Psychodynamic and Psychoanalytic Theories which foster an interest in and curiosity about what's going on inside, the many emotional and experiential contributors from the past and the present that contribute to current feelings of distress. She listens closely and is interested in learning with you about the thoughts and feelings that cause difficulties within, in relationships and in life in general.
With a commitment to life-long development and growth, Deborah seeks to create a supportive space in which to facilitate the emotional work and commitment necessary to work through and cope with the complicated and, at times, confusing feelings that may impede the pursuit of greater fulfillment.
