Welcome to “On the Couch” — a series of Q&A sessions where you get to know the human side of our amazing staff at Well Clinic.

We hope this helps you find a therapist you can connect with, so you can work on your wellness together. This week, we chatted with Cirrena Troutt, an Associate Marriage & Family Therapist (AMFT) at Well Clinic in San Francisco.

Describe one of your first few jobs.

My first fulltime job was front desk at a hostel in San Francisco and It was one of the best times of my life.


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

Go bowling! For some reason I only go twice a year, one of those times is my birthday.



I often incorporate Narrative Therapy and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) into my work with clients. In my three years of studying Counseling Psychology at the University of San Francisco, I was able to learn how to use CBT effectively and work to mold it to meet each individual’s needs.



  • 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.
