Full Name

Zora L. Kolkey, LMFT


Zora is a  Marriage and Family Therapist with a private practice in San Francisco.  She got her Master’s Degree in Clinical Psychology with an emphasis in Somatics from Antioch University, San Francisco, and her license in 1987. She also has an MSSW from Hebrew University in Jerusalem.

She specializes in working with people involved in lawsuits who are suffering from trauma and litigation stress.  She knows first hand what this is like and her work helps relieve stress on the attorneys by giving their clients a place to vent and deal with their  trauma, anxiety and other issues.

Practicing law can be, and often is, one of the most stressful professions.  Zora also works with attorneys, both with any personal issues they might have and/or helping them deal with difficult clients.   She is listed as an approved therapist for the Bar Association’s Lawyer AssistanceProgram.  She had also been a volunteer therapist for the Homeless Advocacy Project which is part of the SF Bar Association’s justice and Diversity Center.   She has received an Outstanding Award for a number of years and received the Community Service Award in 2008.

Zora has a four-legged co-therapist whose name is Dafka.  In Hebrew that means, “I told him to do something, and, Dafka, he did just the opposite”–which can define a difficult person and/or a challenging situation.

Zora loves working with different cultures and with those outside the mainstream, individuals, couples and families. She has an intense passion for this work and can’t imagine doing anything else.
