Greetings! I'm excited to share some recent changes to my practice. The summer of 2015 brought major changes, as after almost a decade at PAES Counseling Services, I stepped down from my Clinical Supervisor position, and into my own practice full-time. It was indeed a bittersweet departure, as I will acutely miss all of my wonderful RAMS, Inc colleagues, as well as the wonderful clients this program serves. However, I continue to maintain strong ties to this community, and am also extremely excited to be able to devote my full attention to my private practice, fostering its growth over the months and years to come.
I continue to supervise for Queer LifeSpace, a nonprofit providing long-term, low-fee mental health and substance use services to the LGBTQQI community. I have also taken on a postdoctoral intern from CIIS, as well as a trainee from Haight-Ashbury Psychological Services (HAPS), a sliding scale psychotherapy clinic. (HAPS was actually my initial practicum site--way back in 1999--and current collaborations with my very first supervisor has lent a wonderfully rich coming-full-circle feel to this phase of my career!)
In addition, I have a new contract with Episcopal Community Services, providing consultation and supervision for the case management team at the Navigation Center, the city's newest homeless shelter pilot program. Supporting their staff is a natural extension of my last decade within San Francisco's welfare-to-work program, and I am pleased to maintain a link to services for San Francisco's neediest populations.
Please feel free to update me on your professional developments, and thank you for your continued interest and support!
Jessica Katzman, Psy.D.
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!
