About Amina

Amina

Hello and welcome!

My name is Amina Elfiki and I’m a Registered Associate Marriage and Family Therapist. I earned my Master’s degree in Counseling Psychology from the Wright Institute in 2017 and I’m currently employed and supervised by Dr. Sheila Addison, LMFT #49616.

I began my relationship with psychotherapy as a client–first in individual therapy, later in couples and family therapy as well. Although I initially came looking for help managing stress and exhaustion from my nonprofit job, I continually discovered old wounds that had never completely healed, aspects of myself and my life experience that I had never explored.

I am the child of Filipinx and Middle-Eastern immigrants, and a Midwesterner by birth. I have lived in the Bay Area since 2007. I am a queer, polyamorous transgender woman, a partner and a co-parent. I am an intersectional feminist. I am dedicated to the pursuit of a more just world, and to acting in solidarity with struggles against white supremacy, neoliberal capitalism, heteropatriarchy, and ableism.

Outside of therapy, I enjoy making folk music, drawing and writing.

To learn more about my services or schedule your first appointment, call me at 510.545.3415 or email me at therapywithamina@gmail.com.
