Mark Hirschfield, LMFT, Marriage & Family Therapist in San Francisco, CA


I provide therapy for those who wish to create changes in their lives and relationships that are longlasting and positive. I offer safe compassionate and supportive counseling in an atmosphere that deepens understanding, promotes healing, and releases potential.
Unresolved emotional issues can stifle creativity, confidence, ambition, and our ability for good relationships. Trauma and loss can cause sadness, depression and pain that inhibit and block.
My style of therapy is empathic and respectful of personal values and lifestyles. I use interactive talk therapy and other appropriate techniques such as EMDR. The presenting problems are first alleviated. Profound change and personal growth are then able to take place through understandingand healing of the deeper underlying issues.
My specialties include:
  • Depression / Anxiety
  • Grief / Loss / Bereavement
  • Effects of Childhood Abuse / Trauma / PTSD
  • Sex and Love Addiction / Sexuality /Internet Addiction
  • Social anxiety / Self-esteem / Shyness
  • Relationship Issues / Anger Management
  • Couples Counseling
  • Divorce / Co-parenting
  • Family Therapy / Child Therapy
Feel free to call or e-mail me if you have any questions, or wish to make an initial appointment. If we can’t work together for any reason, I will do my best to provide appropriate therapist referrals.
I am available days, evenings, and Saturdays. I accept credit cards and offer a sliding scale. I also offer telephone consultation.
I’m a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist . Originally from England, I received my BA degree in Psychology at Stanford University and my MA degree from New College in San Francisco. I have worked in the fields of individual, couple, family and group counseling, crisis prevention, child advocacy and shyness research since 1993.
