Lisa Ruben has been working as a psychotherapist in the Bay Area for over 20 years. She offers individual and couple's psychotherapy in San Francisco and the Rockridge district of Oakland.

She has extensive experience working with people of diverse backgrounds, ages and lifestyles confronting such issues as:

  • depression
  • anxiety
  • LGBTQ issues
  • transgender/gender
  • parenting
  • marriage/relationship
  • grief and loss
  • trauma and disasters (childhood and adult)

Lisa is an engaged, thoughtful and compassionate therapist who offers insight, support and guidance to help you create and experience more understanding and satisfaction in your life. She believes that current challenges in our adult lives are often linked to difficulties that occurred in childhood. She is trained in EMDR as a means to initiate healing such childhood experiences.
