I have over 20 years of experience providing mental health services to children, adolescents, and adults in individual therapy. It takes real courage when someone asks for help or looks for support and it’s a privilege to be able to offer my services and not a request that is ever taken lightly. When working with youth in particular, one thing I know to be true is that young people are more similar than dissimilar no matter where they come from. They all deserve to be respected and feel valued through a collaborative process where they are the leaders of their sessions.

My approach is to create an accepting, supportive, non-judgmental partnership in order to help my clients discover their strengths, inner resources, and to achieve a deeper understanding of who they are. This work will help you to overcome or more effectively deal with such problems as anxiety, depression, anger, stress, relationship difficulties, life transitions, and attention deficit disorder. We work together to identify self-defeating thought patterns or unconscious defenses that might be getting in the way of your natural capacity for satisfying relationships, or the full and authentic expression of who you are.

I have over 40 years experience, 20 in the Monterey Peninsula. I believe that the key to most emotional and psychological problems lies in relationships, those in the past and in the present. Learned conscious and unconscious behavior patterns can cause difficulties in life, and these behavior problems can be changed or modified. My approach is eclectic, utilizing Gestalt Therapy, psychodrama, Transactional Analysis, Cognitive Therapy, and other modalities within a psychodynamic framework. I work with adults, adolescents, couples, and families. I see people who are depressed, stressed, anxious, or who are having relationship or sexual problems.

Over the past 14-years I have had the privilege of working to help youth, families, and adults suffering from symptoms of anxiety, behavioral problems, depression, dissociation, grief, relationship problems, and trauma. All the clients I have worked with have several things in common: social, emotional, and/or behavioral problems that lead to an impairment in their ability to function and to suffering; a desire to reduce their experiences of suffering; the courage to share their personal stories in therapy; and a willingness to try something different.

Hi there, I'm Dr. Aaron Rosales and I provide psychotherapy & consulting for a better world. I'm in the social impact space myself and I care deeply about supporting my compatriots working for change. I know that building a better world is tough and attempts at self care don't seem to keep burnout and its co-conspirators away. Unfortunately, the truth is, pain is inevitable when we care deeply about others and our world. Our bodies, thoughts, and emotions can all hurt.

As a clinical psychologist working for the military for the last 12 years, I have had the unique opportunity to help a diverse group of people with a wide variety of challenges. I have spent considerable time specializing in trauma, anxiety, depression, and sleep problems. However, the biggest gains have been with patients who were ready for change and willing to be challenged. Patients have said they appreciate my low-key style and one-on-one sessions that are problem-focused while acknowledging the past.

These are trying times. Stress takes up residence in our nervous systems and wreaks havoc on our careers, our relationships and our bodies. It doesn’t disappear simply by ignoring it or by gritting our teeth and trudging stoically down the same stressful path. So, whether you are struggling with burnout, depression, anxiety, work/life balance, grief/bereavement or the responsibility of leadership, you do not have to carry the burden alone. One of the kindest things you can do for yourself is seek support. Give yourself the gift of good therapy—you are worth the investment.

We are all in the process of change, it is an unavoidable element of life. The trick is to have the willingness to look at how we wish to change, and take steps to do so. This may involve simply developing a different perspective on some struggle or other. No matter what the problem is though it takes courage, to allow another person to see our vulnerability. With that willingness there are very few problems which cannot be significantly improved or solved. Encouragement from a person who understands what we struggle with can help empower us to take action to feel better and be happier..

Psychologist, PsyD, QME, Author
Verified
My goal for each man I work with is to provide hope and support while facilitating the recovery process.
Welcome to my practice. I have about 15 years of clinical experience and have been featured on NBC/KCAL/HLN as an expert psychologist. I work primarily with men who have hit “rock bottom” and would like help getting up. These men are often in crisis when we first meet. The issues I address are typically related to unhealthy sexual behaviors, infidelity, financial recklessness, gambling, drugs/alcohol, dishonesty/lying, and relational conflicts. My therapy approach is a combination of psychoanalytic, cognitive-behavioral, and the 12-Step recovery model. I also share insight from my own painful but redemptive recovery journey.

If you are looking for someone who will help you find your inner strength I am your man .
I have been so blessed to work with some of the most amazing, strong individuals. I have worked with everyone from facing addictions head-on to being diagnosed with cancer and learning how to shift gears and fight. I am the man you want in the trenches with you while you are navigating and fighting the hard things that life will inevitably throw your way. My clients are fighters. When I am done with them I am often in awe of the respect I have for the human spirt and the resiliency of our minds and bodies. If there is one thing you take away from working with me, it is that you are capable and you are so much stronger than you know.

It has been a pleasure for me to journey with men as they learn to re-integrate their hearts and their heads, to help them understand what they feel and why, to assist in addressing issues related to anger, trauma, relationship, identity development, and vocation.
***CURRENTLY ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS*** With a history of working with men from all walks of life, including athletes, first responders, and students, it is clear to me that many of us are taught to separate our hearts and our heads in order to navigate our lived experience. We learn that emotions are not to be trusted, indeed that they are to be suspended if we are to make intelligent decisions. Along with this mistrust of emotion I often encounter the harmful effects of fatherlessness or abusive/neglectful father figures, which damages our understanding of masculinity and how that masculinity expresses itself in daily life.

I believe that in regards to my work with adolescents (many being male ), being a younger male can aid me in finding a strong connection with these clients.
Working through life's challenges on our own can be a daunting task and often in these instances it can be extremely helpful to sit with someone who can process through these difficulties side by side. In therapy I seek to develop a genuine and strong connection with my clients while providing them with the insight needed to better understand and develop control in their lives. Often struggles in the area of mental health can cause us to feel that we have no control over these issues. I seek to help you regain that control and balance in your life.
