Social Skills Training for Individuals in San Francisco

“Our social skills services for children, adolescents, and adults are based on the premise that social skills (e.g. communication skills, active listening, friend-making, reading non-verbal social cues, networking abilities) are essential life skills that foster success, happiness, and health. Our goal is to teach these skills in a supportive and nurturing environment, with the expectation that the skills will be generalized to real-world experiences and relationships.”

Social Anxiety Therapy

Decrease Anxiety

Are you a resident in San Francisco dealing with anxiety? We offer individual and group social skills coaching sessions online to teach kids, teens, and adults how to manage anxiety. They learn how to relax and cope with their emotions, so that you can have a better response to the people and situations they face every day.

Social & People Skills Classes

Improve Self-Esteem

Our social coaches help kids, teens, and adults to feel confident with others in San Francisco. No one likes feeling shame, embarrassment, or anxiety in social situations, so we are here to help. Our online groups act as a kind of social anxiety therapy, and we regularly teach passive clients how to be assertive.

Online Social Skills & Communication Training

Communicate Clearly

San Francisco residents can improve their social skills through our online training programs. Instead of memorizing social skills from books or other sources, our programs allow participants to practice their skills with other learners in a safe and supportive environment. Participants also receive feedback from their peers and the group facilitator, which helps them to build confidence and improve their relationships.

Social Skills Training Online:

Resolve Conflicts

Many San Francisco residents do not realize that conflicts can be resolved in a way that benefits both parties. Our virtual social skills training programs for kids, teens, and adults teach them how to see things from another person’s point of view. This leads to greater understanding and empathy, which can help to resolve conflicts in a more constructive and mutually beneficial way.

Online San Francisco Social Skills Groups

Our behavioral therapy group sessions have been very helpful in resolving issues for San Francisco residents because they provide a safe and supportive environment for participants to learn and practice these skills. In these sessions, participants have the opportunity to:

Practice active listening

This involves paying attention to what the other person is saying, both verbally and non-verbally, and trying to understand their point of view.

Express feelings and needs

This can be difficult for some people, but it is important to be able to do so in a respectful and assertive way.


This involves finding a solution that both parties can agree on.


This involves identifying the root cause of a conflict and developing a plan to address it.
