Welcome to “On the Couch” … a series of Q&A sessions dedicated to getting to know the amazing staff at Well Clinic

This week, we’re sitting down with Mojdeh Mansoori, a Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist (LMFT) at Well Clinic in San Francisco.

Where did you grow up?

I grew up in a small town on the Central Coast.


What is your favorite quote?

I grew up with Persian poetry, especially from the poet Hafiz. I find this quote of his particularly beautiful:

“I wish I could show you when you are lonely or in darkness the astonishing light of your own being.”


What is your favorite part about your work?

I love connecting with my clients and having the opportunity to heal others. I feel honored to be a part of my clients’ lives.


What is your favorite thing about San Francisco?

I think it is one of the most beautiful cities. I love that it has a certain European charm. It is such a special and unique place.


In your free time, what are you most likely doing?

I am most likely shopping for vintage clothes, supporting the local art and music scene, and spending time with friends.


Where was your last vacation?

I spent time in a yurt near the Yuba River. It was pretty magical. Swimming in the waters of the Yuba was very peaceful.


What causes are you most passionate about?

I am most passionate about issues of social justice and feminism.


What was your career before becoming a mental health practitioner?

I was a teacher for many years.


What is your favorite sports team?

I am always ready to represent any of the Bay Area teams. I especially love the Giants.


Tell us about someone who inspires you … past or present?

My grandmother inspired me. She was fiercely independent at a time and in a country where that was not always easy to do.


Name one guilty pleasure, past or present.

I have been known to catch up on celebrity gossip from time to time.


What was one of your first few jobs.

I was a sushi waitress in college.


What’s one fun thing you wish you could do more of?

I would love to take more road trips.

  • I absolutely love Well Clinic! From the beginning, my husband and I felt like we were in a comfortable and safe space.

    Our couple’s therapy bridged gaps in our relationship and helped us understand each other that much more.

  • Well Clinic is an oasis, especially for busy professionals like me.

    It’s a relaxing and safe space, nothing like the stuffy or drab offices you’d expect when going to a therapist.

  • Well Clinic’s inviting and professional design makes me feel comfortable and at ease, which probably benefits the work I am doing.

    In fact, it doesn’t really feel like a therapy clinic at all, which I find awesome.
