About Gracie Landes

For as long as I can remember, I’ve been fascinated by the relationship between individuals and their family, social, cultural, physical, work, and political environments. So much good comes from having conversations with people that align them with their best hopes and what they want more of in their lives.

I’ve been seeing therapy clients since since 2001, when I worked as a counselor at Progress Foundation, a community based residential treatment and supportive housing program in San Francisco, California; then at the John F. Kennedy University Counseling Center. While in graduate school, a colleague and I launched a counseling program for children and families affected by domestic violence. After graduating with a Master’s degree in Counseling Psychology from John F. Kennedy University in Pleasant Hill, California in 2003, I interned at The Family Institute of Pinole (California), where I provided counseling to victims of crime, families  undergoing stress or affected by domestic and other forms of violence, in an innovative training program for family therapists.

In New York, I trained at The Ackerman Institute for the Family, worked as a clinician-researcher in two different family therapy treatment programs: one a drug treatment center in the Bronx, and one at New York University, before I started my private practice in Manhattan. I am Licensed to practice Marriage and Family Therapy in New York State, and am an AASECT-Certified Sex Therapist. 

Before becoming a Marriage and Family Therapist, I worked in graphic design, adult education, organizational psychology and corporate training. I have presented workshops on creativity and change, facilitated meetings for organizations such as The San Francisco Chronicle Newspaper, Oakland: Sharing the Vision, The Support Center for Nonprofit Management, and Media Alliance. I also taught at the University of California Berkeley and Santa Cruz extensions, Academy of Art College, and Marin College. I am so glad to have had these experiences that inform my work today as a psychotherapist. 


Reviews found online:

I highly recommend Gracie Landes - she is on 25th and 6th and worth her weight in gold.

I have seen her for a year and a half and couldn't imagine seeing anyone else. She always remembers things from a long time ago and gives solutions. Always punctual and flexible with my schedule."


"Gracie Landes helped us a lot, she is awesome. We had other issues, but she does specialize in intimacy issues. She is practical, doesn't take sides, and really helps you to problem solve things. She would be perfect."


"I've gone to Gracie Landes, who's a sex therapist, although I went for something different, so I can vouch she's been a great therapist for me...She doesn't actually take my insurance (you can check on her website) but she worked something out with me instead. i.e., if her website doesn't list your insurance, it may still be worth reaching out to her to see if something can be arranged..."


"My husband and I saw Gracie for about a year and a half. She saw us through separation to the birth of our child. Gracie is an excellent therapist and maintains neutrality while challenging couples to see their issues from the perspective of the other."
