Professional statement

Faye Ocomen is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker based in San Francisco, CA, who works with adults dealing with anxiety, depression, life transitions, and work/relationship stress. Many of her clients have found success academically, in their career, and even found their person. But despite their achievements self-doubt and dissatisfaction comes up. Faye helps her clients explore the self-doubt and dissatisfaction to find strength in their vulnerability, quiet their inner critic, and create new narratives. She works from a strength-based and practical perspective so her clients can make change and heal old wounds.

Faye's approach is rooted in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, an evidence-based approach that focuses on helping clients understand how their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors are interconnected. She works to help clients identify thought patterns that negatively impact their mood and self-esteem, develop coping skills to manage stressors, and challenge self-defeating beliefs. For couples, she uses Emotionally Focused Therapy, which applies a humanistic approach and the science of adult attachment. She works with couples to create a more secure emotional base that deepens and strengthens their connection.


Message to clients

I work primarily with people of color. Many from immigrant families, which I can relate to. My family immigrated to the US when I was very young. I understand what it's like to straddle two worlds, one with the dominant culture and the other heavily influenced by family. One that values therapy and the other teaches you to keep your emotions and distress bottled up.

I understand that opening up and being vulnerable is difficult and sometimes scary. I'll do my best to put you at ease and feel supported through the process. Therapy with me is like a conversation that focuses solely on your well-being. I ask a lot of questions to get us started on your road for self-exploration. Together we'll figure out what is working and what's not working in your life. And you get to decide where to go from there.
