“Dr. Tom, thank you for your help during our meetings. I am grateful for what I have been able to accomplish.”

I highly recommend Dr. Ervin.  I benefited tremendously from my treatment with him over the course of many years.  I found him to be wise, trustworthy, understanding, caring, interested in my well-being, and a good listener and observer.  Our work together helped me gain valuable insight and understanding.

Dr. Ervin seems to continually read, reflect, and grow in his own understanding of the mind, mental health, and counseling, and to put his learning into practice.  When he thought it might be helpful to me, he recommended that I look into various books, thinkers, and practices, and indeed those recommendations contributed to my progress.

Dr. Ervin has created a comfortable and pleasant therapy office in a convenient location.”

“I cannot recommend Dr Ervin enough. I’ve seen a few therapists and a lot of them are nice people, but don’t really help – they will listen and make a few textbook suggestions, but nothing more than that.

Dr Ervin on the other hand, helps you make real progress, real changes. He’s an incredibly knowledgeable and highly skilled therapist, who quickly understands who you are, as an individual, and gives you real insight into who you are and why you do the things you do. His style is very dynamic and adaptive and on days where I went in feeling good, he would challenge me and help me make progress with my issues. On days where I was ready to give up, he’d be that sympathetic, understanding voice helping me to carry on.”

“I had 9 months of therapy with Dr Ervin (stopping, regrettably, as I moved abroad) but in that relatively short period of time, he has helped enrich my life and given me the tools I use on a daily basis to get the most out of life. Dr. Ervin has helped enrich my life and has given me the tools I use on a daily basis to get the most out of life. Getting in touch with Dr. Ervin was one of the best things I’ve done! I cannot recommend Dr. Ervin enough.”

“Thank you so much Dr. Ervin! I couldn’t have finished that chapter in my life with such fulfillment without the important skills I have learned working with you.”

“I had never seen a psychotherapist before I met Dr. Tom, and one could say I was somewhat of an unbeliever to say the least. Dr Tom’s character, knowledge, listening skills, sense of humor and ability meant that I quickly changed my outlook on the value of such therapy. I had a roller coaster year emotionally but through his help I managed to learn and implement “me” into my life which gave me a foundation with which to start to welcome the unexpected and deal with change as a positive. At the end of each therapy session Dr Tom always gave me pause for further thoughts and this helped me learn self reflection and implement what we had discussed. My anxiety has all but dissolved and my depression is gone. Now I’m at least on the right path and for that I’m truly grateful. I couldn’t recommend him highly enough.”

“I want to let you know how thankful I am for all your help, advice and support through my most challenging times. I am in a much better place today thanks to you and I will never forget how you have helped me. I feel like I have come such a long way and often hear ‘What do you think this means’ and ‘it’s not about you’. My most sincere thanks.”

“I want to say thank you for everything. I appreciate your composure and helpfulness. For these I am thankful. I wasn’t sure what changes I could make at my age (70) but I am managing troubled areas of my life differently and better. I am thankful for the help in making changes, and I have enjoyed knowing you.”

— RP, San Francisco 2012

“I want to thank you for all the help you’ve given me over the past year. Living in San Francisco was worth it!. A lot of the things that I learned in your office will stay with me for the rest of my life.I am very grateful.”

“Dr. Ervin listens to your problems and actually engages you in conversation, unlike other therapists I’ve been to who just sit there with a blank look on their face when you run out of things to say. Dr. Ervin genuinely cares about his patients. His fees are also quite reasonable by SF therapist standards. He is “out of network” on insurance, but will work with you on the paperwork to get you reimbursed from your insurance. Dr. Ervin has seen me through some very difficult times and I am very grateful that I found him.”
