Feeling stuck?
Need help?

If you’re experiencing troublesome patterns that interfere with your ability to enjoy life to its fullest, perhaps it’s time to find a San Francisco psychologist who can offer skillful help so you can become the connected, productive individual you want to be.


Dr. Seth Rubin is an analytical psychologist who can help you understand how to deal with difficult feelings and situations on a day-to-day basis. You’ll learn how to process experiences and find the tools necessary to make a solid change in your life.

A Healing

When you enter the office of Dr. Rubin, you will experience immediately the quality of temenos, a deep sense of sacredness and safety. The secure environment he offers will enable you to relax and focus on your emotional symptoms (anxiety, depression), your problems of living (relationships, individuation and adult development) or your preparations for death and dying (practical and spiritual). Dr. Rubin will provide you with a rare blend of therapeutic skill, orientation and experience as he empathizes with your personal position and works with you to gain insight into your situation, discovering your own authentic way forward in the process. Moving toward psychological balance and wholeness will help to ensure you create new values that will guide your life.
