Helping people navigate growth, relationships, and transitions.
Therapy to move your forward.
We do so much to avoid pain, or more often the fear of pain. This behavior often sabotages our opportunity for connection, joy, and a fulfilled life. The more effort struggling through the same patterns will land you in the same place.
Major life changes, conflict, feeling stuck, new chapters and other life events can be destabilizing and difficult to navigate alone.
Separation, divorce, and career changes take time to unwind old ways of being and reinvent yourself with new beliefs, behaviors leading to a more fulfilled life.
Helping relationships of all types be more connected and loving while also doing the individual work to be a great partner.
Listening, communication and the inner work and often spiritual work which helps level up your life on all fronts.
You can try on a different way of being, thinking and behaviors which replace your old ones helping to create the new outcomes. It won’t be easy, but I’m here to help guide you.
Hi, I’m Mark.
Let me help you take charge of your life. I am a licensed psychotherapist in California with over ten years of experience working with adults, youth, and families.
My approach is honest and straightforward so that you can get the help that you need in a way that makes the most sense to you. I enjoy tailoring each interaction to fit the individual needs of the people I work with.
How This Works
- Be all in. Much like getting your physical body in shape, this will take some work and you will encounter resistance. If therapy is new or “didn’t work” in the past, don’t use that as a reason to keep your distance as a critic.
- Schedule your first appointment. Video or in-person sessions available and you be automatically prompted to complete some confidential online forms.
- Develop your plan. We will talk about your goals and come up with a plan.
- Reassess. As we make progress on the primary issue which brought you to therapy, we can adjust to new goals or move to as-needed appointments.
What People Are Saying
Frequently Asked Questions
Do you offer video sessions?
Yes. We use a secure, HIPAA compliant, video app which you can use from a Chrome web browser or our mobile app. Video appointments are billable to insurance just like an in office session.
Do you offer services anywhere in the world?
Yes. While I offer sessions anywhere, those in California fall under the LMFT license and can be covered by insurance. Sessions outside California are considered coaching sessions and are not eligible for insurance.
Where is your office?
My office is in Costa Mesa, near the 55 and 405 Freeways; The address is 3001 Red Hill Ave, #1-216, Costa Mesa, CA 92626.
Do you take insurance?
No. However, as a licensed professional my services may be reimbursable through
many insurance companies. Please contact your insurance company and ask if they
“reimburse for out of network providers.” If so, you will pay me directly for the session
and I will give you a super-bill (receipt) for you to turn into your insurance company.
Depending on your plan, they may reimburse all or part of the fees.
What are the fees? How long are the sessions?
Session fees are $175 and are 50 minutes long.
Payments may be made using our scheduling app and setup for auto-payment after a completed session.
Who do you see? / What types of clients do you work with?
I work with individuals, couples, families, and adolescents.
Because I come from a Humanistic Growth model of therapy, I’ve seen great success working with motivated clients who are willing to invest in their personal growth and self betterment.
How long does “it” take?
Due to the subjective nature of each individual case it is impossible to make a blanket statement of what the length of therapy will be. I suggest investing 4-6 sessions and then collectively we can evaluate your goals and challenges and set out a clearer treatment plan. Some folks may come in once or twice a month for several months, while others may come in once or twice a week.
