I'm patient and respectful and work with individuals, men and women, from anger to the workaholism.
I recently left Saddleback Church where I was the Pastor of Pastoral Care for 17+years. I've been a licensed marriage and family counselor for 25+ years. I'm passionate about helping people have the abundant life. I respect the fact that everyone needs to make a personal decision about their faith but I do approach therapy using Christian perspectives and values.

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.

We all could benefit from talking to someone who understands what we are going through when life gets challenging. But more than that, we need someone to talk to who really values us deeply and offers practical tools each time. That is why resistant husbands continue to come see me and benefit from our time together. As well as young men, women, & adolescents in various stages of life struggles. My clients quickly realize they are genuinely cared for while receiving helpful, life changing insights that transform their thinking, how they approach life. Families in Rich Encounters is counseling to help enrich your life!

Have you noticed that there are very few male therapists? Many couples come into therapy with the woman pulling the man along while the man may erroneously feel ganged up on by the female therapist. So it is nice to have an emotionally available male therapist. I equally enjoy working with women. I work with children, teens and individuals also. Find out more at SandersTherapy.com.

When we experience severe trauma or life stressors, our lives can start to collapse into a day-to-day struggle. Our normal coping mechanisms and our support systems can start to fail or no longer be enough to help pull us through the difficult time. The truth is, we cannot change our life experiences, but we can search to find solutions to help us overcome depression, addiction, anxiety, relationship difficulties. We can grow and become aware of our own strengths as we face our struggles. Sometimes we need that extra help to aid us in regaining life balance in our journey of self-discovery.
