Sara has been a wonderful resource for my husband and I on a regular basis over the last year and a half. She is able to provoke thoughtful conversation while remaining unbiased. Sara is incredibly insightful and patient but knows exactly when to chime in during our sessions, with a perspective we often haven't explored. We leave our sessions feeling like we've accomplished very productive discussion, and with things to work on in her absence. I can't recommend Sara enough- she really helped us start our marriage on the right foot. More...

Sara was my first experience with what great psychotherapy could be--all the way back in 1988! I somehow found her--maybe she ran an ad in a newspaper? --when I was a student. She listened with remarkable attention and real empathy and created a space in which I could lead myself to significant and lasting discoveries. That's why I came back to her nearly 30 years later. She still creates a safe exploratory environment for individual counseling. My work with her continues to help me grow and heal. I will always be grateful to have had and continue to have Sara in my life. More...

Sara is a fabulous therapist. As a therapist in training, I consider myself a discerning customer of therapy. She was able to connect to me in an open-hearted, genuine and non-judgmental way that I have not experienced before. As a result, I found that some of my long-standing contracted places opened up. I could not recommend her more highly. More...

My husband and I have been working with Sara for 2 years and have found her tremendously helpful - both individually and as a couple. She is careful to interject at only the most appropriate times, pulling the most important items out of each conversation. Her reminders to stay in the present moment follow us around wherever we go and we're tremendously grateful for that. She has always been flexible with her schedule which helps with our busy city lives. She continues to be a helpful guide and provides wisdom in each and every session. Would highly recommend her to any couple or individual seeking an experienced therapist. More...

I want to congratulate the greatest marriage counselor in San Francisco, Ca! My friend recommended me Sara, because she has problems in her relationship and after few consultations she and her husband now are more happy then ever. I was in the same situation.. with my husband at last time ware like a two persons which hate each other. That was the most terrible few years in my live.. One day we spoke with my husband and I explained him about Sara and about that we must to try with marriage counseling. He agree and I called her. She is so good person and spoke with us with so deep passion and have so big motivation to help to the people. After several weeks she learn us to speaking each other, to get more conversations.. to not bring problems at work in home and many other things.. We listened her and started to make everything which she said us and now the change is huge.. now we are just like we meet for the first time! You are great person Sara and deserve the all happiness in the world! Thank you so much for all that you did for us! More...

My fiance and I spent a few months with Sara leading up to our wedding. We wanted to take some time and invest in our upcoming marriage, as opposed to just spending all of our energy on the wedding. And we both had a wonderful, incredibly helpful experience working with Sara. She helped us have conversations that we needed to have, but found difficult to make happen on our own. She was flexible with our schedule, easy to get a hold of to begin therapy, and incredibly easy to talk to. She helped us understand each other better as individuals and how to work together better as partners. We are also comforted to know that when and if we need her again, she is available to help us work through any challenges that may come our way. I highly recommend working with Sara. More...

Sara is an incredibly skilled, insightful, attentive, and passionate therapist. She has a depth, and spaciousness that invites you into discover your life experiences in an open and inquisitive way. She is an expert in understanding how our thought patterns, feelings, emotions, impact our daily lives, in relationship to ourselves, and those around us. Her honest insights have had tremendous value in navigating life's challenges, circumstances, and who we are in relationship to them.In my journey for balance, and well being, Sara's mindful approach has helped me identify changes that are possible, and accept what cannot be changed with compassion, and without attachment, or aversion. Sara is a truly gifted, and brilliant therapist, in addition to a gracious, and caring human being. Beyond words, I am truly grateful to you Sara for all your support and wisdom! More...

Sara Alexander is excellent marriage counselor. She was great at identifying behaviors of my wife's and mine that caused serious conflict in our marriage. She helped us to learn how to express our feelings and how to change our behavior that led to negative results. Without her help, my basically good marriage most likely would not have survived. I highly recommend you to try her marriage counseling service if you are wishing to improve your marriage! She is really amazing person and very professional as a marriage counselor! More...

After having several short-lived, mediocre experiences with other therapists,  I finally landed in Sara's office to address my anxiety problems.  That experience has been nothing short of life-changing.  After a little over two years of work, my anxiety has been greatly alleviated, I have a better sense of self, more confidence, am happier in my relationships with my partner and my closest friends and family, and generally just feel more alive in my day to day experiences.I know Sara would say that those gains were because of my own dedication to myself, but I can't imagine how I would have gotten where I am today without her guidance and support.  She's an amazing person, and I hope you have the chance to benefit from her compassionate support.

Before my partner and I found Sara we had been seeing another therapist weekly. I felt like we weren't making progress so I wanted to try someone new. After just one session it was clear how much better Sara was. She kept us "on topic" and "in the moment" in a genuine way that our previous therapist was never able to do. She helped us to slow down and understand that each of us has different, valid, perspectives. We continue to see Sara and are thankful we found her. More...

I have spent time with a few individual therapists and couples therapists over the years and each brings their own style. Some therapists take the position that they are only there to listen --- not particularly helpful in my opinion . Sara, on the other hand, helps you identify what the issues are (as it turns out sometimes what you think you're coming in for, isn't really the issue! Who knew?!) and helps you not only sort them and understand them, but helps you develop an action plan to tackle them.  Sara listens well, has insightful advice and helps you solve problems. She somehow manages to stay impartial yet also helps each partner feel heard and understood. She tells it like it is and totally calls you out on your bs --- in a loving way of course. I think that's important to fostering trust for each party and avoids leaving one person feeling alienated. Spending a session with her has made our relationship stronger and much better than it ever could have been on our own. If I had to pick one word to describe her, it would be compassionate. Although we no longer need to see Sara on a regular basis, we feel very comfortable dropping in for a session if we're struggling on a particular subject.  I would highly recommend her to anyone in need of ongoing counseling or even a one time life advice session.

I discovered Sara when I needed help navigating through a painful relationship and our work together has led to my gaining a deeper understanding of myself, my family and the people in my life.  Direct when needed, always honest and accepting, she has helped me develop the tools that I didn't earlier in life.  With her support, I've learned to have boundaries, gain self-acceptance, and become a stronger version of myself.  To Sara, I am grateful.

In my quest for balanced mental health, I was referred to Sara. Thankfully we hit it off & I was on my way to a more serene life. I think everybody should allow themselves an opportunity to work through life's frustrations & challenges. Admittedly, I have let some of these frustrations & challenges prevent me from having inner peace. Sara has helped me realize my true potential, with that it has given me a chance to live the balanced life I strive to live. I am truly grateful for the gifts she has given me to take care of myself. Her straightforward questions & style has helped me more than words can express. Sara is an extremely gifted & talented woman...actually I think she is extraordinaire! More...

I don't even remember how I happened on Sara. But I saw her website in a time of great need, called her up, and even in the midst of a terrible depression, was able to laugh on the phone with her. I knew she would be great.She's a fantastic couples' therapist and has helped my husband and I through some very dark times. She's taught me boundaries, how to live in the moment, and how to accept, forgive and let go. We've all decided that we're very close to the end of our sessions and I will miss her tremendously. I think we may pay once in a while just to come and hang out with her for an hour! More...

Superbly effective, compassionate, honest; Sara Alexander did a marvelous job with my wife and me. She was always on top of what we both were feeling; and we always left feeling better than when we had arrived. After a handful of sessions, she told us, "You don't need me anymore!" Enough said; and if we do need a therapist again, we know where to go. More...

We began seeing Sara about three months ago for couples therapy. Throughout our sessions, Sara helped us to see some of the underlying issues in our relationship and taught us what we could do to improve communication and how to resolve conflicts in a healthier way. One of the most important things she taught us was to look at the relationship from a no fault perspective. This helped us to not focus on who was right or wrong during conflicts, but to listen and understand the other person's perspective regardless of whether or not we agreed.After several weekly sessions, I can say that my husband and I are in a much happier place in our relationship, and we have learned so many important lessons that will serve us well in the years to come.If you're unsure whether or not therapy can help you in your life right now, I encourage you to try it and highly recommend Sara. I'm so glad we did! More...

I have known several couples therapists and Sara is by far the best and had been the  most helpful.  Her skillful non judgemental guidance has opened us to new ways of seeing things. She then helps to ground these insights with practical  doable strategies.  She has been incredibly helpful and I would highly recommend her. More...

Sara is everything a good therapist is supposed to be. She is kind, thoughtful, empathetic and smart. And let's not forget honest. Sara is no pushover. She speaks up when it is needed. It may hurt, but it is sure helpful. I should know. Charm doesn't work with Sara.I have worked out so many family and friendship issues with her with great results. I am much more realistic and can now more easily access the adult in me.Personally, I think that there are a lot of people out there who could use Sara's help. Therapy is a wonderful gift you give yourself. And so is Sara Alexander. More...

My first wife and I needed counseling in the late '90s and worked with Sara 1997-2001. Sara had the great challenge of working with two individuals who excelled at burying their feelings under many layers of diffidence, prevarication, and rationalization, but she continued asking the questions and drawing answers from us. Our course of counseling lasted a long time, probably because my then-wife and I resisted the ultimate conclusion that the "patient" was terminal -- I think it was denial on my wife's part and cowardice on mine. My metaphor is perhaps inapposite; a doctor should save the patient's life, a couples therapist's mission is to save the individuals, though not necessarily the relationship. Ultimately, Sara succeeded in bringing closure to me if not my wife. I moved on a better man for the lengthy inspection of myself, and but for the difficult extraction (difficulties attributable to me, not to any shortcoming of the counseling) I would not today, a decade later, be enjoying the best relationship of my life, one that gets better year after year after year because of who I became during that painful time.PS.
