Most of us have moments in our lives in which it feels like everything is falling apart. You may be tormented by your history, relationship patterns, health, or any number of other stressors. You may be tired of feeling controlled by your anxiety, or on the verge of losing something important to you, such as a relationship or a job. Maybe you're overwhelmed, and struggling to understand why.

Mark B. Gallo, LMFT, began pursuit of a master’s degree in Counseling Psychology at the age of 49. His life and prior work significantly inform his approach to psychotherapy. Mark’s proclivity is psychodynamic, exploring root causes, tempered by an integrative client-centered approach with cognitive-behavioral applications. Mark was raised in a small steel mill town in Ohio. He earned a bachelor’s degree from Georgetown University in the nascent field of Psycholinguistics. Upon graduation he moved to West Hollywood and became an activist at the inception of the ‘first gay city' in the US.

My therapeutic approach is warm, respectful, active, engaged, compassionate and focused. My clinical framework is guided by convictions that individuals possess intrinsic drives toward health, happiness and love. When this inner wisdom becomes obscured by life's struggles, or when a child's development sways off course, I provide a space to reflect, regain perspective, and help individuals make adaptive choices and coping strategies that lend to greater fulfillment in play, school, work and relationships.

I specialize working with queer, gay, bisexual, & transgender adults & adolescents in the San Francisco Bay Area. I am most passionate about providing advocacy for cultural and economic diversity in our community and serving LGBTQ+ people experiencing depression, anxiety, and PTSD. Engaging in therapy is more important than ever especially in response to our current political climate and recent backlash of conservative values showing incredible disrespect toward the LGBTQ community and throwing extra stress at immigrant populations and communities of Color.

As you begin a new year and are thinking about making resolutions to change things in your life that have stopped working for you, one might asks where do I start? How might your life improve if you followed through on the things that you know you want to do differently? What if you adopted healthier habits, learned a new skill or made changes to job or relationships? What are the things that bring you happiness and life satisfaction? Why do you keep on engaging in behaviors that feel safe and familiar but are leading you nowhere? As the new year begins it is time to get unstuck and make positive changes for yourself.

Do you feel like you aren't good enough? Are you sensitive to being hurt in social situations? Do you struggle with issues of self esteem or self worth? If these are common themes for you, your teen/child, or in your relationship, then perhaps we might work well together. I center my work around self compassion. I believe that only from a place of self kindness can we feel grounded within ourselves enough to develop a compassionate relationship with others around us. I use mindfulness and somatic body oriented work in order to help us connect deeper with our self, our inner knowing and to be able to cultivate trust with ourselves.

If you’re searching for change in your relationships, mental wellness or your use of substances, my focus is using the latest in neuroscience to get you there. I keep up with the latest findings on the brain and the mind and weave it into my therapy approach. I use as many of the advances as possible to change clients’ anxiety, stress and depression. I approach therapy as a collaboration between me and the individual or couple. What works best for the individual or the couple is what I emphasize. I offer articles, books and blogposts for couples and clients to use and refer to in between sessions to enhance the work we’re doing.

I look forward to working with any psychological issues, but especially with clients expressing a sincere, motivating desire to change their life. I work with individuals (children & adults) and couples experiencing both deeper, long-term difficulties as well as more situational, short-term problems. While I work to help patients alleviate acute symptoms, it is often possible & advantageous to resolve the underlying causes of anxiety & depression in particular. My doctoral work also focused on Organizational Development. Clients facing work-related issues usually find this added perspective and training helpful.

You spent most of the morning subsisting on caffeine, but that's fine...you're busy! People might even comment on your supposed discipline but if you're really honest? Food stresses you out. You wish you had this figured out by now. Why is this so hard? You're fine as long as you stick to a plan, eat clean, avoid anything too triggering. But then if you slip up and eat a cookie in the afternoon (you deserve it!) why does it always turn into 3 or 4 (or the rest of the box) and then you feel stuffed and really really disappointed in yourself. Also, you know, deep down, it's not really about the food.
