Please note: I will not be available for consulting with prospective new clients or others by phone or email until after April 15, 2023. I have 40 years experience helping people feel better about themselves, and working through the pain and self doubt that is holding them back in life. We all need a caring, supportive person at times who listens and is genuinely concerned about our well being. When that happens new possibilities for happiness that seemed lost or forgotten can emerge to our delight and relief. For years I've led workshops and conferences at Esalen Institute in Big Sur, California on compassion oriented therapy.

I want to support you through the hard stuff. You may want to feel more in control of how you feel and cope with the stressors in your life. You may feel discouraged, hopeless or overwhelmed. Maybe you feel so drained emotionally and physically it's difficult finding reasons to get out of bed. It is never easy to address areas of pain, unease, or discomfort. I want you to feel less alone while you learn new ways to build your self-confidence and promote self-respect.

Experienced clinician offering in person or virtual therapy helping individuals with a multitude of life challenges. I have over 25 years of counseling experience and was one of the first therapists to offer online therapy back in the early 90's at cybertherapy.com (no longer my domain). I believe it's vitally important for you when considering who to work with that you choose someone who has years of experience helping hundreds of individuals with their mental health needs. I look forward to being that clinician for you.

When I began learning about therapy, the first thing that stood out was this statement: “The client- counselor relationship is the most important criterion for effectiveness.” In my experience with Suicide Prevention, Substance Dependence, Transition Aged Youth in Foster care, and Individual & Family therapy I found the statement to be accurate.

My style and approach to therapy is "keeping it real." I believe in providing individuals with real and insightful perspectives in dealing with everyday life problems. I enjoy working collaboratively with individuals to address concerns in their lives that are preventing them from reaching their optimal level. I believe that everyone has their own optimal level and this is just when you are at your best and feeling really good about yourself. I am skilled at working with relationship issues, adolescent developmental transitions, family problems, sports related concerns (self-esteem building and performance), and more.

Many people find themselves repeating the same patterns- reactive triggers, relational issues, struggles with addictions, moods, anxieties- even after years of therapy, and other body/mind practices. i have found that if we can identify one or more of these patterns (in daily life),we can follow the thread of each pattern to resolve it at its (oftentimes traumatic) roots. I help you to explore and transform one or more core patterns in your self and life, to develop new capacities and reawaken deep soul qualities. This body-experiential process enables you to release the energy bound within patterns- and recover your inner spirit.

As a gay man , I know what it’s like to worry whether your therapist is truly an ally. It’s crucial that you feel safe in order for therapy to be effective, and that’s why my practice is 100% dedicated to helping LGBTQIA+ people. Here’s a little about my style: I strive to create a warm, open space in which you can freely explore what is coming up for you. You're the expert on you, so I ask lots of questions. I also use my sense of humor (sensitively). Finally, as a clinical psychologist, I am trained in scientifically-supported treatments for numerous mood and anxiety problems (and more), which we can draw upon as needed.

While much of my work is with male identified clients around toxic masculinity, I find that the work I do with women is healing in a deep and meaningful way.
Not your daddy’s therapist - $175 per 50min session. If you are looking for a therapist just like every other, then keep looking. I am holistic, young, experimental, polyamorous, extremely open-minded, spiritual, transpersonal, weird, awkward, provocative, quirky, heteroflexible, and a sparkle of queer. My life work focuses on the deconstruction of social norms including gender, masculinity/femininity, relationships, sexuality, professionalism, and mental health as a whole. Therapy is not a one size fits all kind of gig. I customize the way I work to match the needs, strengths, and limitations of each individual client.

Finding a therapist can be difficult, especially finding a therapist who looks like you and can relate to struggles you face with. Being a young male in todayʻs society can be difficult and often times problems are over looked due to the stigma of " man up." Being a parent and adjusting to the changes of a growing family, strain on a marriage, issues from childhood impacting parenting can be difficult to identify and reflect on. Being an athlete and finding space to process how issues outside of the sport could be impacting your performance can be outside of your comfort zone because personal or athletic lives tend to be seperate.

Although most people are depressed or angry at times, they generally find a way to deal with the situation. There are times, however, when a person loses hope or is overwhelmed. They or others decide they might use some help. Sometimes a woman or a man decides that they would like to adjust their life style and emphasize their sense of self. If you work in Silicon Valley, I can use my experience in industry to help you unblock your potential and design effective strategies for greater satisfaction. If you seek spiritual depth, my years as a guide may help unfold meaning.

I work with adults, teens, and couples struggling with depression, anxiety, and the inability to effectively communicate. With individuals, I help reframe challenges and liberate talents, especially in men alienated from the economy and meaningful purpose. I taught for years in a high school, and thus am comfortable working with adolescents. My orientation is eclectic, however I draw mostly from psychodynamic and relational theory, as well as CBT techniques. I find these approaches complementary, even necessary to establish a holistic treatment plan.

I work well with motivated clients. I specialize in using Byron Katie's The Work. I help clients work through childhood trauma and negative patterning. I love watching clients go from overwhelmed to empowered. The Work is excellent for trauma, anxiety and depression. I love clients who are curious about how their mind works. The Work will help you see how the mind can sabotage, and how you can overcome feeling victimized. Clients with an open mind benefit the most. I work equally well with men , women and those who identify as non-binary. I am curious and work well with all spiritual perspectives. I can go anywhere with you.

"For many people it is difficult enough just committing to contact a therapist...but then, who is a good fit? Many of my clients indicate they appreciate my more 'active-therapist' approach. I offer effective solutions and provide feedback. With over 40 years of experience, I work with couples having communication challenges, those working through rebuilding trust, or ones who need improvement in their overall relationships. I also work extensively with individuals facing divorce, depression, or anxiety. Additionally I work with mature teens and young adults as they look to venture out into the world.

What type of Benicia mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist or psychologist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counselor in Benicia?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
