About Us

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. You can read more about our shared values here.
