About Me

Who is Lisa Brookes Kift, MFT?

I am a California based psychotherapist (MFT) with over 15 years of therapy experience with individuals, couples and groups.  I began my private practice in San Diego and currently am in the San Francisco Bay Area (Marin County).  I offer teletherapy services to California residents; from Santa Clara, San Diego, San Francisco, San Mateo, Marin, Los Angeles, Santa Barbara and everywhere in between.

I work with individuals and couples, offer premarital education and now with the increasing mental health strain of COVID, group therapy for small, private groups at a lower price point.  My therapy services are offered via video or phone.

A few of my practice focuses:

  • COVID impact
  • family of origin work
  • stress / life balance
  • worry / anger / sadness
  • relationship challenges

I believe that happiness can come from finding that sweet spot between emotional health and satisfying relationships.  With the added stressors of our time, this may feel harder to attain.  By helping you identify and remove the obstacles holding you back, we will work to empower you with the tools you need to manage and ideally, grow.

I am also a writer and creator of LoveAndLifeToolbox.com.  One of the first therapist websites online, it’s a  packed with emotional health and relationships resources.  A frequent consultant for online media, I’ve appeared in CNN, HuffingtonPost, Shape, MensHealth and others.

Home for me is Mill Valley, California, at the foot of Mt. Tamalpais.  I am a mom, a wife, a dog owner, a fitness enthusiast and a nature lover.
