Are you struggling to move past a distressing event or ongoing life issues that have you feeling overwhelmed, and powerless to make a change? Are you noticing that certain patterns in your life are leading to self-sabotaging habits, breakdowns in relationships, and isolation from others? Is your use of drugs and alcohol feeling unmanageable? Are you wanting help finding direction and meaning in your life? Therapy is an opportunity to grow and develop new self-understanding, learn new skills for coping with stress and for communicating more effectively in relationships. I offer a safe, compassionate, nonjudgmental space in which we can work collaboratively on your issues.

I will help you find your inner wisdom, intuition, and provide you with the skills to implement meaningful, long-term change to transform your life. Together we'll explore your thoughts, feelings, and behaviors in new ways, to promote a sense of inner freedom.

I specialize in treating people with:

  • Anxiety and worry, depression, grief and loss

  • Drug and alcohol issues

  • ADHD

  • Trauma and PTSD

  • Relationship patterns

  • Family and unresolved childhood issues

  • Spiritual and existential issues

  • Professional burnout and life transitions.

  • Chronic pain and illness

I received my doctorate in clinical psychology from the California Institute of Integral Studies. I have over nine years of clinical experience and many years of research experience working on clinical trials for treatment-resistant PTSD using MDMA. I have an office in the flat iron district in New York and am in San Francisco several times a year and see clients there. I am licensed in both the state of New York and California and see clients over video in both states. I can provide therapy in English or Hebrew. I invite you to give me a call at (415) 409-8821 for a complementary 20 minute phone consultation where you can ask any questions and take time to decide if I am the right therapist for you. You can also contact me over e-mail at DanaCohenPsyDoc@gmail.com

Taking the step to come to therapy takes courage. Call for a free consultation so we can figure out the best ways to help you.
