Tired of feeling hurt in your relationships? Wow, things can get confusing and overwhelming so quickly! It is my job and my pleasure to help turn the tensions and pain you're experiencing into opportunities for growth and expansion. If you are ready to make changes and open to new possibilities, now is the time. I work with couples and individuals. We will find the nourishment within the pain while not losing track of what feels good...laughter is not uncommon in my office. If you are a man interested in working in a group, check out IRL Men below.
I am trained in a mindful, body-based therapy called Hakomi. By tuning into your nervous system we can move you to states of clarity and ease. Your body wants you to be in balance; connected to the relief that is just below the surface of your anxiety and fear.
I am interested in the intersection of identities that makes you the unique person you are. I honor the ways that culture, family, and our communities shape us. I am trained to work with trauma (including ongoing trauma caused by systemic oppression). I work deeply and collaboratively.

J. Brian Thompson's Groups

IRL Men (In Real Life Men)

My colleague Troy Piwowarski Psy.D and I run IRL Men's groups in San Francisco. Join IRL Men to experience more freedom, enjoyment, and ease in your relationships; learn the key building blocks of satisfying relationships; find support in facing your fears; and recognize and change habits that are blocking you from being the man you want to be. The group will provide support and relief from the stress and isolation that is common in the modern world. IRL Men is an ongoing group. Limited space is available but new groups are forming. Please contact me for more info.
