Let’s work together to identify what you truly want for your life
and how to get you there.
Hi there. My name is Angie Waldrop and I’m a licensed clinical psychologist (PSY#23535) in San Francisco. I offer psychotherapy with an emphasis on self-compassion, acceptance, and a healthy skepticism about our thoughts and the stories we tell ourselves. I believe that it is important to promote self-efficacy in my clients. I want to help you learn how to do what it takes to create the life you want. I use cognitive-behavioral therapy because it provides a collaborative and evidence-based approach to change.
Psychotherapy calls for your active engagement for it to be most successful. For that reason, I will ask you to work on things we talk about both during our sessions and between sessions.
Here’s a little bit of what you can expect in our work together:
Meet for 1-2 initial visits so that I can begin to get to know you and to help you identify where to focus our time together.
Collaborate with you to develop a working plan to address your goals.
Meet for individual 50-minute sessions. The frequency will depend on your needs, but typically start with once per week.
Check in periodically to review our plan and progress towards your goals.
When you feel satisfied that you have reached your therapy goals, we can work together to address new targets or we can wrap up our work together. You may come back if and when you need it for a "tune-up" or to tackle other issues.
Finding the right match with a therapist is essential for fully engaging in and getting the most out of therapy. I hope the information I have provided here will give you some familiarity with my approach and expertise. I invite you to contact me for more information.
