Class is in session!
"Figs is the best couples counselor in the business. His psychotherapy strategy is so damn simple that it feels silly, obvious, or trite. But wait for it. Because it's the most developed, deeply touching philosophy I've ever experienced."
"I am now having a very authentic, healthy relationship with a new man in my life and I'm certain the work I did with Figs helped me achieve this. He is truly gifted and doing exactly what he's been put on this earth to do. "
"Our relationship has blossomed, our home is a safer, more peaceful, supporting and loving environment. Our most painful relationship issues seem to have evaporated, and the road ahead looks better than ever thanks to Figs!"
A class on LOVE?
Yes! And you already have what you'll need.
Love is a feeling, an action, and a basic human need.
And it's also a skill I want to help you develop.
If you're confused or suffering in your relationship, you're not alone. It's because most of us never really LEARNED HOW TO LOVE.

There’s just a messy clog of damaging gunk getting in your way, and I’m like the Love Plumber who's gonna snake that sludge out.
What do ya think of that?? I’ve been scratching my head trying to figure out a good metaphor. Obviously, I couldn’t come up with one. :) All I know is Plumbers are heroes. So it stays.
Couples Therapist, Dad,Husband, Relationship Coach and Founder of Empathi.com
I was born, bred and emboldened in Dublin, Ireland and immigrated to the Marin County and San Francisco area in 1994. Psychotherapy, or self-exploration, has always been a mainstay in my life. One could say I am the typical psychotherapist cliché in so far as I was drawn to psychotherapy to better open to, move through, and heal my own emotional pain and suffering. I was the last of my immediate family to answer the call to become a guide for people to heal emotionally and spiritually. My father is an experiential therapist in Ireland, my mother a social worker/probation officer, and my sister is also a psychotherapist in the Bay Area. For me, being a psychotherapist in San Francisco and Marin County is more than just a job; it is a vocation that demands deep commitment to authenticity, compassion, empathy, vulnerability, honest self-reflection, and humility.
Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, Mom, Wife, Artist and more!
Born and raised on the island of Oahu, cultural sensitivity informs my therapeutic work and inspires me personally. I recently graduated with a Masters Degree in Counseling Psychology with a specialty in Community Mental Health. Being of service to others is more than just a vocation for me, it is my passion.
My areas of specialty include working with those who are experiencing relationship problems, sadness, hopelessness, anxiety, grief, addiction, parenting challenges and feelings of social isolation. I have experience with children, individuals, seniors, couples, and in facilitating therapy groups.
I value a collaborative therapeutic approach in order to help create a new sense of self-understanding and acceptance. As I receive further specialty training in different areas of my therapeutic interest I continue to grow and maintain a beginners mind. In my free time I’m an artist, cook, practice yoga and enjoy walking throughout San Francisco’s parks and beaches.
