WELCOME. I’M MELANIE STEIN.
I’M A REGISTERED ASSOCIATE MFT (AMFT #132006) BASED IN SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA.
I specialize in working with adolescents, adults, families, and couples dealing with issues related to:
~ Relationships & Conflict
~ Anxiety & Depression
~ Trauma & PTSD
~ Grief, Loss & Healing
~ Self Esteem
~ Life Transitions & Identity
~ Mood & Personality Disorders
~ Sexuality & Gender Exploration
~ Psychedelic Integration
It is my deep belief that you already hold within you all of the wisdom and capacity for healing that you’re seeking. My role is to compassionately guide you back home to that place of inner knowing and remind you of your wholeness. It is an honor to be on this journey with you.
HOW I THINK ABOUT OUR WORK
Therapy is a means by which we can come to meet ourselves and remember our wholeness. It is a space for us to explore the causes of our suffering in service of tapping into our joy. I provide a safe, sacred space full of warmth, curiosity, and non-judgement. Together, we’ll welcome and tend to the hurt or fragmented parts of yourself that are keeping you from your peace and joy. We’ll help you to cultivate a more fulfilled, present, and connected life.
I approach the work of therapy through relational, depth, psychoanalytic, and somatic orientations. I often incorporate mindfulness, breath, and body awareness into my practice and honor the interplay of mind, body, and spirit.
