Psychotherapy Services

Therapy Services

I offer long and short-term therapy for individual adults and couples in the Financial District/Union Square area of downtown San Francisco. Some of my areas of interest and specialization include working with businesswomen; women in mid-life; lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and questioning concerns (LGBTQQ); and people who struggle with emotional connection and expression. 

More About My Psychotherapy Practice

The people I work with come from many cultures and socioeconomic backgrounds. They represent a wide range of sexual orientations and gender identities, including lesbian, bisexual, straight, gay, female, male, questioning, and none-of-the-above. They are people seeking answers to specific problems that keep them up at night: for example, career, relationships, self-esteem, mid-life issues, relocation, or the challenge of living in San Francisco. They are often people who are intelligent and articulate, solid and successful in their careers, yet they have difficulty accessing their emotions or sharing their feelings with others.

Whether the idea of talking to a therapist is exhilarating to them or terrifying, they are people who want to look at their lives in a deeper and more meaningful way. Some of them are people who have had bad experiences in therapy or who think therapy won’t be helpful to them. Many of the people I work with just need a safe, confidential, and non-judgmental place to talk about what is going on for them. My clients share a common perspective that two minds looking at a problem together can create greater possibilities than one mind looking at something alone. 

I am happy to address your questions and concerns in a complementary, no-pressure, phone consultation where we can look at what is going on for you and whether therapy might be the next step. I can be reached at 415-218-2442 (phone link works from smartphones only) or via email at info@marlacass.com. Please be aware that, due to the limitations of electronic transmission, emails and calls placed from mobile devices may not be secure.
