Therapy for the Millennial Generation




My name is Lisa Palley, and I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT #108222). Although I like to collaborate with my clients and tailor my interventions to best suit their needs, I am a proponent of Attachment Theory, which suggests that relationships with early caregivers can inform our present relational styles.  The majority of my clinical hours have been spent working with middle and high school-aged adolescents throughout the San Francisco Peninsula and Silicon Valley.  As such, I am sensitive to the unique challenges facing our youth in today’s complex and dynamic world.  

Prior to becoming a LMFT, I was employed as a publicist and event planner in Los Angeles.  During my tenure, I was exposed to the struggles young professionals face balancing work, relationships, and their physical and mental health, which was the impetus behind my return to graduate school and eventual career change.

I am committed to helping people from diverse backgrounds articulate and achieve their life goals and gain a greater amount of self-compassion and insight in the process.  I currently work with adolescents and their families at Teen Therapy Center in the South Bay. I am not accepting private practice clients at this time.

People are just as wonderful as sunsets if you let them be. When I look at a sunset, I don’t find myself saying, “Soften the orange a bit on the right hand corner.” I don’t try to control a sunset. I watch with awe as it unfolds.
