Therapy for Women and Couples in San Francisco 

Reconnect with yourself, your partner, your life.

You want to feel secure in who you are and connected in your relationships, but lately you find yourself feeling: 

● Disconnected emotionally or physically from the one that you want to feel closest to● Stuck having the same repetitive arguments that get you nowhere● Longing for intimacy, but feeling afraid of putting yourself out there in a vulnerable way● Burnt out on love, and wondering if it would be better to go at things alone● Feeling betrayed in your relationship and unsure of how to move forward from here

You deserve to be seen, known, understood, and loved. Life doesn't have to stay this lonely any longer.

Hi, I'm Julia.

I’m a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and I can help you you make sense of your experiences and develop the tools to become more free to love yourself and others well.

Julia Alford Therapist

I'm an individual and couples therapist with a passion for relational health. I believe we are wired for connection with others, but the impacts of trauma, fear, and shame can sometimes keep us from connecting to others in healthy ways.
With curiosity and compassion, I'll aim to help you get beneath the surface and to the core of the challenges you face. We will work at your pace to help you better understand your relationship dynamics as you develop more effective ways of communicating and connecting. 
The therapy process is always unique, but many of my clients complete therapy feeling more confident and clear about who they are, more connected in their relationships, and more equipped to handle life's challenges with authenticity and grace.

How It Works

  • 01

    1st Phase

    Let's start with a no obligation 20-minute consultation phone call. It will give you a chance to describe your particular issue, ask any questions about my experience and services, and come to a decision about whether I am the right therapist for you.

  • 02

    2nd Phase

    Through the therapy process, we will meet for weekly sessions targeting your specific goals. Going at your pace and with my expert guidance, we will work to expand your understanding of yourself and your relationships, heal what has held you back, and help you apply what you are learning outside of session.

  • 03

    Final Phase

    Hard work pays off and you may start to feel more confident in yourself, more connected in your relationships, and able to integrate what you have learned and experienced in therapy into your day-to-day life. At this point, many clients are ready to lessen their frequency of sessions or plan to graduate from therapy. It will be a joy to celebrate your success.

You don’t have to keep feeling stuck and disconnected. I can help you work towards the life and the relationships that you were made for.
