About Ginny Pizzardi

Psychotherapist, Author
Ginny Pizzardi is a San Francisco psychotherapist committed to providing quality mental health services to individual and couples. With over twenty-five years of experience, I maintain a private practice in San Francisco, serving a broad spectrum of clients.

Among my areas of interest and expertise are adoption, childhood abuse and trauma recovery, addictions, loss and in-depth psychotherapy. Although you might not have a clinical condition or symptoms, therapy can help you learn more about yourself as well as others, and so you can live your life with deeper satisfaction. Our work can help you become more effective, stronger and more fulfilled, as you become the person you want/were meant to be. Therapy is meant to help you overcome obstacles that keep you from reaching your goals.

I consider myself a warm and interactive psychodynamic and psychoanalytic psychotherapist. My therapeutic approach is to help clients effectively address personal life challenges, with compassion and understanding. I weave into focus, the conflicts from your family and how they effect your feelings, beliefs, behavior and the choices you make in your life today. I engage with each individual, specifically focusing on their particular challenges, worries and together, help them build on their strengths and attain the personal growth they are in search of. We can unearth long-standing behavior/interpersonal pattern or negative perception that may be holding you back from experiencing a more fulfilling and meaningful life.

A core belief of mine, is that suffering often comes from unresolved losses in our lives, that cause self-defeating beliefs, difficulties with self-esteem issues and other challenges. Through understanding our conflicts both intellectually and emotionally, freedom to pursue the life we imagine for ourselves becomes attainable. I believe we all strive to love and be loved, to connect deeply with others, find meaning in our work and to enjoy our lives. I believe attaining balance in our lives is achieved through integrating our emotional, intellectual and spiritual lives.

Today you have taken a step towards overcoming the suffering you have been living with. Change begins with the awareness to need or want to change and you have begun traveling a new path to growth and well being. My goal is to help you uncover your true potential and lead the life you imagine. While we can't change difficult situations of the past, we can work together to better understand and resolve challenges in your life.
