Nicole Ridout, PsyD, Psychologist in San Francisco
Ready to break free of emotional blocks to awaken a healthier life? Therapy can help. I am a psychologist with extensive training and experience in helping individuals work through a variety of challenges. I especially enjoy working with adults who are experiencing issues such as relationship problems, anxiety, depression, work/school stress, transitions, low self-esteem, family conflict, perfectionism, and performance concerns. I recently worked as a psychologist at Stanford University and UCSF where I saw students for personal and academic concerns. My clinical training includes work at several college counseling centers, residential treatment facilities, and children's hospitals.
Using a supportive and collaborative approach, my goal is to help people grow and overcome challenges so that they can enjoy a healthier, more satisfying life. I primarily draw from cognitive-behavioral, psychodynamic, and mindfulness-based therapies, and my approach is tailored to best fit the needs of each individual.
It can be difficult to find someone you can trust. You can feel confident knowing that I have experience working with a variety of issues, and offer a warm and nonjudgmental space for you to explore your most challenging issues. Visit my website or call for a free phone consultation.
