Dr. Pearlyn Goodman-Herrick and Jonathan Goodman-Herrick, LCSW, in private practice for over thirty years, offer a dynamic, down-to-earth approach to therapy and coaching. Serving the Bay area, they have offices in Mill Valley, Marin and in San Francisco.
Enjoying marriage for 40 years themselves, they have a deep passion and a rare talent for helping couples and individuals become more skillful at and enriched by their relationships. They see relationship as the most challenging and satisfying of all experience – as well as a remarkable gate-way to opening the compassionate heart and awakening the mind.
For those who choose to make it so, Pearlyn and Jonathan find that marriage is perhaps the most dynamic of all spiritual practices. In conscious relationships partners can become the most powerful force for each other’s evolution beyond the small, limited, egoic self – to the ever unfolding state of love and freedom.
Integrating a remarkable spectrum of therapeutic tools, they have thousands of hours of client experience and decades of meditation and inquiry practice. See “Training and Media experience“.
