Stanley E. Wipfli, LCSW, MAC - San Francisco, CA

Licensed Therapist and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy Expert

Stanley Wipfli is a licensed therapist in downtown San Francisco, available for virtual counseling for residents of California with his secure teletherapy platform. In addition to the many clinical issues Stanley Wipfli treats, such as depression and anxiety, he specializes in therapy for individuals in the technology and finance industries.

"If you’re like most professionals I see in my therapy practice in San Francisco, you’re likely feeling strained and overwhelmed by the demands of your life, job, family, relationships. You’ve accomplished much in your life, yet, along the way, you got off track. You’ve lost your sense of meaning and purpose.


The stress and feelings of emptiness in your life have gotten to the point where something has to give. You can’t continue the way you’ve been going. You may think that there is something seriously wrong with you - that you’re inherently flawed.


But being hard on yourself doesn’t help. Feeling stuck can be debilitating. If you could have solved your struggles by now, you would have. You’re certainly far from the only one to seek help when life has become too much to bear."           

                                                        - Stanley Wipfli, LCSW, MAC

You can likely relate to some of the following therapy issues:

  • You’re consumed with worry and anxiety
  • You feel isolated and alone
  • You’re depressed and depleted of energy
  • You feel worthless at times
  • You’ve had a traumatic past that keeps creeping into your current life
  • You may be self-medicating by using food, drugs, alcohol, gaming, etc.
  • Your relationships are difficult or painful

If you struggle with any of the above issues, you might be surprised at how quickly your mood, relationships, or career can improve once you attend therapy with me.


Stanley Wipfli - From Entrepeneur to Therapist

Being passionate about entrepreneurship, before becoming a therapist, I ran a business where I wasn't equipped to deal with many facets of my business.

Unaware of my limitations, I kept working harder, thinking that was all I needed to solve my problems. I became a toxic, dysfunctional person until I finally sought out rehab and entered therapy.

As a result of getting help, I took on my new career as a therapist with vigor and enthusiasm. I finally felt fulfilled as I came to focus on my strengths instead of my deficits.

Your situation may not require a career change, but it likely requires a skilled therapist to help you overcome your issues and guide you towards a more fulfilling life.

Expert Therapist in the Treatment of Stress, Anxiety, Depression, Trauma and PTSD

I’m professionally trained in evidence-based treatments known to help people overcome their struggles and move forward with more peace, confidence and optimism.

  • Certified Cognitive Process Therapist  (1 of 2 in San Francisco)
  • Certified Prolongued Exposure Therapist
  • Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MSBR) Clinician
  • Master Addiction Counselor

As a therapist, I’m honest, personable, and results-driven.

I meet you where you’re at, and we work from there to lead you towards a more fulfilling and rewarding life.

My goal is to help you overcome your struggles as quickly as possible.

Getting Results Within the Context of Time-Limited Treatment 

One method of treatment that I use in therapy is called Cognitive Process Therapy (CPT). It’s a short-term approach that can bring remarkable results in 12 sessions. 

Like many of therapy clients, your current problems are likely related to difficulties or traumatic events that have occurred in the past. 

CPT helps you reframe these events in your mind and nervous system so that there is a reduction or elimination of your symptoms.

My Evidence-Based Therapy Methods Can Help You:

  • Feel more energized and alive
  • Feel calmer - manage stress and overwhelm better
  • Make decisions that bring you more joy and fulfillment
  • Improve feelings of self-worth and honor the value you bring to the world
  • Overcome negative habits - e.g., think more positively, become more productive at work, and heal addictive behaviors, etc.
  • Have more satisfying, fulfilling and loving relationships

You don’t have to continue to suffer when help is available that can transform your life.

With therapy, it’s possible to discover how to create a life where you thrive.

“I worked with Stan at the VA and highly recommend him as a psychotherapist. He is personable, compassionate, and has specialized training in helping individuals who have experienced trauma. He has strong experience across a breadth of mental health problems, including mood disorders, anxiety, and substance use disorders. I'd certainly refer my patients to him for individual therapy.”
