Lee Rather Ph.D. - Clinical Psychologist

Lee Rather, Ph.D. - Clinical Pschologist in private practice in San Francisco

Greetings and welcome to my website. It is intended to give you some basic information about my background, private practice, and the therapy I offer.

I am a Licensed Psychologist and certified Psychoanalyst in private practice in San Francisco (Pacific Heights). I work with adults in psychotherapy, psychoanalysis, and couples' therapy, and also provide teaching and consultation to mental health professionals. You can read more about this on the Services page.

Over the last 35 years, I have helped people with a wide range of problems including depression, anxiety, substance abuse, sexual concerns, interpersonal relationship issues, career obstacles, blocks in creativity, and the process of coming to terms with difficult and traumatic life situations. Generally, the people I work with include creative artists, dedicated professionals, socially-motivated advocates, young adults launching themselves, and well-seasoned adults taking stock of their lives. These days, many are struggling with the demands of everyday life and are increasingly challenged by the upheavals and changes in the socio-cultural, political, and ecological dimensions of life.

Regardless of who you are and what your particular issues may be, our work together should help you discover and develop a more lively and authentic sense of self, which in turn brings a sense of deeper meaningfulness and engagement in life.

In addition to my practice, I have extensive experience teaching and supervising therapists, making presentations, offering workshops, and have published a number of papers. You can get a further sense of this by viewing the Publications and Presentations and Teaching pages.

I hope you find this web site informative and I look forward to speaking with you if you have further questions or would like to speak with me about my services.
