Eric W. Anders, Ph.D., Psy.D. is a Training and Supervising Psychoanalyst at the Institute of Contemporary Psychoanalysis and a faculty member of the San Francisco Center for Psychoanalysis.
I am a graduate of the Supervision Study Program at The Psychotherapy Institute in Berkeley. Prior to that, I was on the faculty of the Newport Psychoanalytic Institute in Orange County, Seattle’s Center for Object Relations, and the San Diego Psychoanalytic Center.
I have helped a variety of clients with a wide range of psychological difficulties. I work with adults, college-age and up. The people I work with range from those suffering from debilitating anxiety, depression, and trauma to those who come in simply for relationship issues or greater self-understanding.
I approach therapy collaboratively and view the work as a joint effort to support, encourage, guide, and challenge the people I work with to make the changes they want. My goal is to create a safe, containing space, where any issue can be discussed and explored.
