I have an engaging, interactive and modern approach combined with a youthful, playful demeanor. You won’t feel that you are doing all the talking.

I’m a Certified Cognitive Behavioral Therapist. I use this practical method to help clients with depression, anxiety, relationship issues, sexuality, and ADHD. Some adjectives that might describe my style are engaged, respectful, down-to-earth, relaxed, mindful, insight-oriented, and solution-focused. At times I might recommend that you read something, or ask you to complete an assignment between sessions in order to deepen your work.

To support couples, I use a combination of Sue Johnson’s Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy and Gottman Method Couples Therapy to help couples heal hurts and to increase their connection through home assignments, practice and better communication. These are the most highly research methods available, with proven track records. I work with people in diverse communities, including those in kink and alternative relationships.

I know that when you look within you gain confidence in yourself and your choices. My goal is to support you in maintaining a big picture perspective while you are processing your thoughts and emotions. I will honor your innate intelligence.

My graduate degree is in Expressive Arts Therapy from the California Institute of Integral Studies in San Francisco. If you believe in balancing mind, body, and spirit, then we might be a good fit for each other, as I believe each is essential to the healing process.

Because your history and experiences are unique, I will do my best to meet you where you are. I want what is best for you just as much as you do!

“This has been a very positive experience for me. My “coach”, Douglas is, by far, one of the best therapist / coaches I have ever worked with. If the rates were a little lower, I would likely schedule weekly sessions with him, vs. every other week. I have never gotten more out of sessions than I have in working with Douglas. A+ Topnotch!”
