Jane Alfonso, LMFT
Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist #85852
Hello! My name is Jane Jolindon Alfonso. I’m a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in California who’s been working in the SF Bay Area for the past 15+ years. I was born and raised in Daly City/South San Francisco near “Serra Manila” mall, nicknamed such because of the large Filipin-x population that lives there. It’s been a lifelong dream to serve the community I grew up in.
I come to this work as a mother, wife, child of immigrants, survivor, and misfit. Interestingly, according to family lore, one of my ancestors is Francisco Dagohoy, the man who led the longest revolt in Philippine history. As his descendant, I strive to honor his legacy by embodying his radical spirit and practicing healing as a revolutionary act.
What does this mean? It means helping you fight for your sovereignty: your right to health, independence, loving relationships, a sustainable present and future. It means honoring the reality of one’s life, no matter how difficult or painful that is. Whether it is depression, anxiety trauma, or everyday stress that is getting in the way of leading the life you want, there is a way to find peace, clarity, and a renewed sense of purpose.
My approach is tailored to your needs and is informed by my experience in massage therapy, somatic (body-oriented) psychology and trauma-informed care. I also have extensive experience using CBT, DBT and facilitating therapy groups. With humor, compassion, and directness, I can help you find a way back to yourself.
Research shows that a good relationship with your therapist is the main ingredient in getting the most out of therapy. Call and find out if I might be a good fit for you.
