Speak with Rob - The Therapy Wolf : (925) 808-9032
Hello and welcome!
Whether you're struggling with
- personal mental health challenges that are impacting your daily life
- issues with your relationship(s)
- issues having to do with intimacy and sexuality
- challenges around your sexual or gender identity
- recovering from sexual abuse or trauma
I am here to help.
I believe everyone deserves high quality, effective mental health care. I am committed to providing you with compassionate, evidence based treatment that is tailored to your unique circumstances, needs and goals.
I am a licensed psychotherapist which means that in addition to having a Master's degree in Counseling Psychology, I have completed over 3,000 hours of post degree supervised experience as an intern.
In addition to those 3,000 hours, I also had to pass a very rigorous series of tests in order to become licensed. I am currently licensed both in California and Nevada.
I've completed the certification program in Sex Therapy from the California Institute of Integral Studies.
How I work:
First and foremost, I seek to provide all of my clients with a warm, welcoming, non-judgemental therapeutic environment where they can feel safe and comfortable sharing their thoughts and feelings.
My therapeutic philosophy is holistic, which means that I consider all aspects of my client's lives in order to provide comprehensive support and guidance. Holistic therapy focuses on the interconnectedness and complexity of the whole person: mind, body and spirit, rather than simply addressing the symptoms of a mental health issue or interpersonal interactional patterns. Holistic psychotherapy seeks to understand the underlying causes for an individual's distress and works towards healing on all levels.
I'm here to help you gain the knowledge, tools and skills to help you find health, peace, pleasure and fulfillment in your life. To do that I employ a variety of approaches including somatic (body based) exercises, mindfulness practices, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Eco therapy, Experiential Arts therapy and Compassion and Acceptance therapies - just to name a few!
In addition to the list above, I use humor, storytelling and play extensively in my therapy. Humor in the clinical setting relieves anxiety, cultivates connection and helps to promote healing. Humor creates a safe, relaxed and gentle space that promotes insight and helps individuals explore their thoughts and emotions from a new perspective. Play can help individuals develop new coping skills, process emotions and experiment with different ways of interacting. I am skilled at knowing when and how to use humor and play to help my clients achieve their therapeutic goals.
How to begin:
When you feel you're ready to begin the next phase of your journey, feel free to give me a call at 925.808.9032 or you can email me at: email@example.com.
I offer all prospective clients a complimentary 30 minute consultation either via Zoom or by phone where we can discuss your therapeutic goals, ask any questions you might have and determine whether I'm the right fit for your counseling needs. It's important that you find the right "fit" in a therapist, so if we determine (for whatever reason) that we would not be well suited to work together, I am happy to provide you with referrals to other therapists who may be the right one for you.
I wish you all the best on your therapeutic journey!
