Who am I? I am Mike Lysaght, MFT, providing therapeutic services to individuals and couples throughout San Francisco, Sacramento, and surrounding areas. This includes sexual minority clients who are often underserved by the therapeutic community. For over ten years I have provided a safe, stable therapeutic environment. Clients with a wide range of therapeutic concerns can come for help and support free of judgment. Likewise, I have a strong commitment to empathy and understanding.
What Is My Approach to Therapy?
As important as the question “who am I?” is “What is my approach?” I have a unique approach to therapy focusing on what I call “interpretation” and “translation.” It starts from gaining an understanding of what each individual or member of a couple wants, and learning how to achieve these wants through cooperation and understanding rather than arguing. To clarify, learning effective communication strategies is a hallmark of my practice.
Why Am I The Right Therapist for You?
Having worked extensively in both Sacramento and the San Francisco Bay Area, I am well aware of the intense stressors in these environments and how they can make individuals, both single and in couples, feel overwhelmed. Above all, this extends to LGBTQ individuals and those who participate in what are often considered by the mainstream to be “alternative lifestyles,” such as BDSM and polyamory. I bring an appreciation of the complexities that make up your individual experience to each session
