About Nanette Freedland, MFT

My name is Nanette Freedland, and I appreciate you taking the time to review my website.

I am a licensed marriage and family therapist and have been involved in the counseling and psychotherapy professions for over 30 years.

I have provided therapy to countless individuals, couples, and families during my twenty years in private practice in the San Francisco Bay Area.

While I currently work with both individuals and couples, the focus of my practice is helping women who are trying to navigate life’s transitions or who may be suffering from an eating disorder.

I enjoy engaging deeply with a variety of people and helping them reduce distress and dysfunction, support positive growth and change, and create and enjoy the life they want to live. I take great pride in calling myself a “psychotherapist” and love the work I do.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have and to find out if we can work together successfully. I’m happy to answer your questions and offer referrals to other trust-worthy professionals upon request.
