Dr. Katiah Llerena, PhD, is a licensed clinical psychologist providing scientifically-based individual counseling and psychotherapy in-person or online (live video therapy) in San Francisco.
San Francisco is at the forefront of innovation, and it’s a city for new adventures and boundless opportunities. For many young professionals, fast-paced San Francisco and different aspects of life (e.g., careers, relationships, family) can accumulate to cause stress. This can lead to anxiety, depression, feeling “stuck,” and other painful challenges. Dr. Llerena can help you understand and master life stressors that affect your emotional health. In addition, her mission is to get you motivated and activated to achieve your personal and professional goals to foster a sense of fulfillment and wellbeing.
Combined with her neuroscience background, Dr. Llerena’s empathic and collaborative approach can help you build resilience and find tangible solutions by exploring your feelings and thoughts. Dr. Llerena customizes therapy to best suit your needs by drawing from a variety of evidence-based techniques including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). Using these techniques, Dr. Llerena will enable you to find the best path to wellbeing.
Life is busy, so Dr. Llerena provides psychotherapy on weekends and after hours on weekdays. She also provides secure, convenient, and flexible live video psychotherapy via computer, tablet, or smart phone.
