Greetings to my friends and colleagues!
I am very excited to announce that my private practice has officially opened its doors! My first day in the office will be Friday, September 26th, and I am accepting new clients now. Details about how to enroll as a client can be found at www.jessicakatzman.com.
My office is located in the ActivSpace building, near the intersection of 18th and Treat. Street parking is available, and its central location in the Mission District of San Francisco offers easy access via public transportation.
I am currently in the process of joining multiple insurance and EAP plans as an in-network provider; until then, I am accepting private payments, and can also provide monthly billing statements to submit for reimbursement. I will provide updates via my mailing list, blog, and social networks when I join provider panels.
More about me and my services:
I’m a licensed psychologist with 15 years of experience providing psychotherapy and harm reduction services for adults in San Francisco, and am pleased to share the wealth of knowledge I’ve gained during my decade in community mental health.
I offer individual psychotherapy for adults, and I greatly enjoy the challenge of working with a wide range of people and their concerns. I do, however, have some specific interests and areas of expertise:
Alcohol and Substance Use Concerns
I am trained in and practice from a harm reduction perspective, meeting people where they are at and helping them set their own goals for change.
Depression, Anxiety, and Mood Disorders
I blend cognitive-behavioral techniques and mindfulness practices with an exploration of the underlying causes of distress.
Recovery from Trauma and Loss
I prioritize creating safe spaces where survivors can access their natural resilience to promote healing.
Social Justice Conversations
I remain aware that therapy happens within a social and cultural context, and make a place for discussing issues related to oppression, intersectionality, and privilege when appropriate.
Habit Change and Goal-Setting
I use motivational interviewing techniques to help people get unstuck from the patterns that trouble them most and make desired changes in their lives.
Employment and Career Consultation
I help people recover from job loss, change careers, deal with workplace politics, apply for disability, and address creative blocks.
I provide an accepting space for discovery in which people can explore who they are, where they’re going, and who they want to be.
Anger Management and Conflict Resolution
I teach interpersonal skills and coping tools to help people communicate assertively and improve their relationships.
Everyone is welcome! I am particularly interested in inviting those who may not feel as comfortable in all treatment spaces: members of the LGBTQQIAAP communities, gender-creative folks, people wanting to talk about size acceptance, people of color and members of marginalized groups, those in non-traditional relationships, iconoclastic artists and activists, Burners and nerds, and everyone else who struggles with how to succeed on this planet without forcing themselves to fit in.
Additionally, I am able to provide clinical supervision for unlicensed mental health professionals and graduate students, and consultation for peers seeking additional assistance.
I am so pleased to move into this next phase of my career, and to be sharing this update with all of you. If you feel I might be a good fit for a prospective client, I hope you will consider referring them to me. Thank you so much for your support and assistance with this process.
You can stay in touch with me and my practice via this blog, my professional Facebook page, my LinkedIn profile, or my Twitter feed. You can also receive free articles and practice updates by subscribing to my semi-regular newsletter by clicking here. Thank you for reading my practice announcement!

I'm a psychologist with a private practice in San Francisco's Castro District. I'm interested in harm reduction, LGBTQQIAAP issues, psychedelic integration, social justice conversations, size acceptance, and any intersections of the above. I welcome your comments!
