Bethany Sala, LMFT, Marriage & Family Therapist in S,


I offer a holistic treatment approach based on my training in yoga, meditation, attachment theory, somatic experiencing, and Jungian psychology. I have engaged in a year-long training at the San Francisco Jungian Institute. I have also completed the Emotion-Focused Couples Therapy Externship and Core Skills. I am passionate about integrating a treatment approach that combines these treatment modalities to best support your goals for treatment. My style is relational and supportive. Clients find my therapeutic presence to be gentle, insightful, and challenging. I work with individuals and couples.
I specialize in Emotion Focused Couples therapy. EFT can help couples:

  • Get out of stuck negative cycles of reactive communication
  • Increase flexibility and resilience
  • Move from distress in the nervous system (fight, flight or freeze) to feelings of safety and connectedness
  • Increase awareness regarding your emotional needs and longings
  • Learn how to respond to your partner's signals for connection
  • Understand and integrate emotional scripts that get triggered
  • Repair Emotional Injuries
  • Create mutually pleasurable sexual experiences
  • Improve your relationship with the erotic
