You're tired and confused, trying to figure out who you are, who you want to become, and what you want in your life. You're not satisfied with your job or relationships. You feel somehow deficient and defective. You feel like the world is unfair to you, rejected or abandoned. In therapy with me, you'll become an expert on YOU: your personality, your past, your needs and wants, the places you get stuck, and how to overcome painful feelings. You'll come to understand why you feel isolated and alone and that you are worthy and unique.

People come to psychotherapy for a variety of reasons. Making our way in this world demands so much self-reliance and yet we are given very little opportunity to get to know ourselves well. We keep our fears and uncertainty about whether we have what it takes to survive our struggles very close to our chests. This is such a fragile place to live. Ignoring our emotions and "soldiering on" creates a life of isolation and confusion. This may manifest as depression, anxiety, or uncertainty about how to wish, desire, and create a life worth living.

Human connection is the catalyst needed to explore any underlining psychic distress. In my psychotherapy practice, I prioritize fostering a collaborative relationship to provide emotional and personal safety, allowing you to dive beneath the surface to better understand the underlying causes of your personal distress. The goal is, through exploration, to create opportunities for you to become more self-aware of your own thoughts and feelings, empowering you to re-create new ways of connecting to yourself and loved ones

Accepting new clients as of Nov 2022. Dealing with something you can't just overcome? I work with clients dealing with the heavy, immovable problems in life by facing the problem head on with a mixture of honesty and humor. I work with clients dealing with alcoholism, substance use, domestic violence, infidelity, and issues with sexual attraction. I assist clients in approaching the problem through education and attachment theory, which focuses on how we form relationships and the relationship we have to ourselves.

Hi! My name is Peter Carnini (he, him, his), and I'm a licensed psychotherapist providing direct, interactive, authentic counseling and psychotherapy for gay, queer, and bisexual men in the San Francisco Bay Area. Counseling and psychotherapy are all about intentionally creating change, and it can be a profoundly empowering experience. Unfortunately, when we're struggling and need help, it can be difficult to know where to turn or what questions to ask, and far too many people end up picking a therapist based only on a referral, or from a list of names provided by an insurance company, or based on how many degrees a therapist has.

My therapy is rooted in a foundation of building trust and healing through relationship. I aim to provide a safe and supportive container where all parts of you are welcome. I utilize an integrated and wholistic approach that draws from contemporary psychology as well as ancient wisdom traditions. Oftentimes in life, the things that hold us back the most are the things we want to confront the least. Facing our shadows can be quite exhausting and I also believe it’s essential to laugh, celebrate and be grateful. I will be there for the highs, lows, and everything in between.

I love being a therapist! I dive in to help you find the right strategy for you or your couple to get out of whatever is making you uncomfortable -sometimes guiding you through it- making room for more choices. Full of curiosity, I'm eager to discover the motivations and obstacles behind these complex brains of ours (Psst they love repetition even if the outcome is lousy!) I work with a lot of execs, IT geeks, college students, members of academia, creative types; individuals, couples and sometimes teenage kids. Together we find ways to increase serenity, lessen anxiety or rigidity; to find balance. Give me a call and let's talk.

I work with men on intimacy, sex/desire, sexual orientation, and problematic sexual behaviors--porn, compulsive behaviors, ... Finding a middle path can be challenging--and profoundly rewarding as you create new ways of relating to yourself and others. I recognize the anxiety, consequences, and suffering when porn, apps, and sexual behaviors are out of sync with who you want to be.

Welcome, glad you're here. Let's be honest, life often is messy and can feel like a struggle. And yet, what if beneath trauma, disappointments, frustrations, or seemingly poor life choices lie seeds of growth that just need some watering? What if you already contain the ingredients essential for thriving? Might your relationships as well? In my view therapy provides a sacred like opportunity where one is offered a chance to experience renewed vitality, meaning, and an invigorated sense of mind, body, spirit, and soul. A space where the genius in you or perhaps the potentials lying in relationships and parenting roles can emerge.

The clients who I can best help are couples who want to create a strong relationship foundation, bridge differing desires, revitalize sexless (or low-sex) marriage or relationship, recover from an affair, or explore alternative relationships, such as poly or open relationships. I also help men who want to understand themselves and their partners, be amazing lovers, or deal with erectile dysfunction. I also have strong expertise in working with women who struggle with low libido and have issues with orgasms or sexual satisfaction.

As a seasoned depth psychologist formally trained in exploring the depths of being human, I will work collaboratively with you to get to the root of what ails you. I find cultivating an affirming, caring stance allows an individual to move more readily towards healing and the resolution of problems and difficulties. Consequently, you can be the person you want to be thereby realizing greater personal agency and generating more successful relationships. The heart and soul of my practice involves working with chronic shame, gender and sexuality issues, life transitions, grief, loss, trauma, dissociated self-states, self exploration.

Often times if you are feeling your worst, you can also be on the verge of being at your best - if only you are willing to take risks and peer behind the curtains of your life. My job is to help you navigate this journey and provide a safe arena for some of life's most personal and rewarding discoveries. I work individually with adults and teens on a variety of issues, but I love to work with clients seeking to recover from life's adversity. Helping you discover meaning and peace in your life is my pleasure and privilege.

My practice is currently overbooked; incredibly limited availability Fall 2022. Thank you. Research indicates that the most important factor in psychotherapy may be the alliance between client and therapist. It makes sense that any individual, couple or family would reflect heavily on this aspect of their search. Initial consultations are about providing a uniquely safe, private space for the client(s) to share thoughts, questions, feelings or concerns.

Anxiety is something you’ve struggled with for a long time. While you seem to be functioning OK on the outside, inside you’re dealing with feelings of dread, catastrophic thoughts that you can’t seem to stop, and constantly feeling like you need to plan for what could go wrong. The good news is that therapy can help you struggle less with anxiety. You and I will work together to help you relate to anxiety more effectively and focus on building a full and vital life.

Sometimes our relationships with others, or ourselves, get stuck. We may have lost direction, purpose, or meaning, and we become unsure of who we are or who we are in relationship with other people in our lives. We feel alone, sad, or scared. Some of us become overwhelmed by naming these emotions. Some may choose to isolate ourselves and think we must navigate this life alone. In these moments, I believe we are invited to pay attention; when we do, we begin the journey toward growth and healing. I think therapy can be a gift, inviting you to look inward to become whole.
