I work with individuals, and with both traditional and gay/lesbian/alternative couples
in San Francisco and the East Bay.

I am a San Francisco & East Bay Licensed Clinical Social Worker with a private practice since 1998. I specialize in working with anxiety and stress, including PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder), anxiety disorders, phobias and panic. – Jim Christrup, LCSW

Stress and Anxiety Counseling

Do you frequently find yourself tense, worried, or on edge? Do you avoid situations or activities because they cause you anxiety? Anxiety is the most common reason for seeking therapy, and one of the most treatable emotional issues. I’m an LCSW with training and experience in a number of approaches that can be especially effective in working with anxiety.

Trauma & PTSD Counseling

Have you suffered from trauma in your past that still haunts you today, sometimes leaving you feeling helpless or out of control? You may have a form of anxiety called Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Therapy can help you decrease distressing symptoms and regain control over your life.

Gay, Lesbian, Queer, & Bisexual Counseling

Having a therapist who understands and empathizes with your issues and supports and affirms your LGBTQ viewpoint and lifestyle can make all the difference in therapy. I’m a gay therapist who has been providing psychotherapy in San Francisco and the East Bay for gay individuals and couples since 1998.
