Client Scheduling

For in-person sessions, Brian’s home office is conveniently located in Los Angeles. However, the vast majority of his clientele, throughout the United States and internationally, video conference with him on Skype, FaceTime, Zoom, or WhatsApp.

My Promise to you

My job is to get you to quit seeing me as soon as possible. It’s a terrible business model, but I can’t do this any other way. I spent so much time and money on my own healing journey for little to no avail. And much of whatever progress I seemed to make was painfully short lived.

I want you to feel better after each session. I want to front-load you with as many tools and skills as possible, so that if I never see you again, you will be better prepared to show up in your life in a new and better way.”

But most importantly I want to help you to see that your struggles may not mean that you have a psychological disorder, but a physiological condition instead. Once we can shift the attention to the dis-regulation that is inherent in the nervous system as a result of past overwhelming or underwhelming experiences, then profound and long-lasting healing is a possibility.


“You are not alone. There is hope.

I want to help.”

About Me

I am not a traditional talk therapist. I am a Somatic Experiencing Practitioner, specializing in working with anxiety, P.T.S.D., developmental trauma, shock trauma and shame.

I used to suffer from developmental trauma, social anxiety, self-sabotage, self-loathing, shame, low self-esteem, depression, habitual re-enactments, and then came the 7-10 full-blown panic attacks every day, following a catastrophic car wreck.

After three sessions with a Somatic Experiencing Practitioner, my panic attacks stopped and I entered the three year training program to become a Somatic Experiencing Practitioner two weeks later.

Since 2004, thirteen of my clients have become practitioners, as well. That is a true testament to the power and efficacy of this work.

For my own personal growth and my desire to be more effective with my clientele, I have completed a 7-module training on Healing Shame with Bret Lyons, SEP, and Sheila Rubin, MA, LMFT, RDT/BCT, in Berkeley, Ca. I am now certified in the Lyon/ Rubin Method for Healing Shame and currently assisting them in trainings.

I’ve also taken extensive training in the study of developmental trauma.

I am so grateful to be in a position to help other trauma survivors. I specialize in working with both developmental traumas (birth traumas, shame, abuse and neglect, attachment/detachment issues, etc.) and shock traumas (divorce, loss, falls, car wrecks, medical procedures, acts of violence, rape, torture, near death experiences, etc.).
