Lisa Ruben recommends seeing individuals on a weekly basis at least for the first few months of therapy in order to build a strong working alliance and relationship. Couples can be seen weekly or bi-monthly.

Lisa will help clients to identify their reasons for seeking therapy, and help them to find an individualized and appropriate path to their healing. She offers homework when desired and/or appropriate to the work.

Lisa works Mondays and Thursdays in San Francisco, and Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Fridays at her north Oakland location.

If she cannot schedule you, she will offer referrals to other qualified clinicians.
