Hello~! I'm glad you are here.....
My name is Stephanie Yuen, a Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist here in San Francisco, CA. I specialize in grief and loss, stress management, social anxiety, intuitive counseling, trauma and sexuality/intimacy issues. I offer a safe and supportive space for my clients to become curious about themselves, their choices and their behaviors.
Grounded in somatic therapy and mindfulness, my approach is gentle, present and direct. I invite my clients to slow down, bringing attention to any blocks or long standing patterns that keep them from; where they want to go, and often, who they want to be. Together, we can begin to co-create and implement support strategies for coping with this exploration and unfolding.
I draw on a variety of styles and techniques to incorporate what will be most helpful for each client. As an eclectic healer, I draw on many modalities for healing. I was trained as a Somatic & Transpersonal Therapist and often use the deep wisdom of the body to work deeply. I also use guided meditations and guided imagery to focus the breath and mind.
More recently, I completed Part 1 & 2 training of Attachment-Focused EMDR with Dr. Laurel Parnell to work with trauma. In addition, I am trained as an Intuitive Healer, using my intuitive gifts for aura and energy healings and readings.
If you are open to healing on a Mind, Body, Spirit level and committed to show up consistently, I would like to work with you.
Finding a therapist is a personal decision. Feel free to contact me so we can determine if my philosophy and approach to therapy align with you.
