Psychotherapy with Individuals, Couples, and Groups Individuals
Individual work is core to my practice. I work with adults, adolescents and families.
Together we can explore whatever you feel to be disturbing your experience of life, particularly depression, anxiety, grief, loneliness, spiritual and creative blocks, illness, childhood abuse, trauma or issues related to s*xuality, gender expression, and intimacy. Couples
In working with couples, I assist my clients in their exploration of relationship. I work with intimate partners, siblings an

"...the way you feel towards other people: loving, hating, et cetera, et cetera; there aren’t any wrong feelings.
And so, to try and force one’s feelings to be other than what they are is absurd. And furthermore: dishonest."

This sure is getting a lot of well deserved coverage. So I guess it’s as good a time as any to share that I’ve been accepted into their MDMA Assisted Psychotherapy clinician training program. My MAPS cohort starts next week. Excited to dive into what could be one one of the most significant developments in mental health to emerge in quite some time. @ San Francisco, California
Hoping my colleagues will take the time to watch this. A great video.

ted.com In this rare clip from 1972, legendary psychiatrist and Holocaust-survivor Viktor Frankl delivers a powerful message about the human search for meaning -- and the most important gift we can give others.
“Freedom, itself, can become stressful and troubling—that one has a responsibility to make good use of their freedom, but becomes paralyzed in their choices and fails to act in a meaningful way...” “What presents as ‘depression and anxiety’ often isn’t biologically-based, but is ontologically/existentially-based.”
io9.com Despite the weirdness of existence, most of us are able to get on with our lives and avoid debilitating feelings of despair, personal failure, and cosmic meaninglessness. But every once in a while we’re tugged out of our complacency and forced to re-evaluate our lives. Here’s what you need to know a…

Bay Area Gestalt Institute is thrilled to welcome Gary Yontef, PhD, to San Francisco. During this day-long workshop, the esteemed trainer, writer and gestalt therapist will present his theory on shame, through the lens of relational gestalt, and its clinical applications. The day will also include abundant opportunities to witness and be part of demonstrations of the theory. Shame is one of the most common and complex aspects of the therapeutic process—join us for this unique opportunity to learn from a master in the field as he offers clear and concrete ways to fearlessly work with this ubiquitous phenomenon.
Based in Los Angeles, Gary Yontef is diplomate in Clinical Psychology with American Board of Professional Psychology and a fellow of the Academy of Clinical Psychology. He has been a gestalt therapist since training with Frederick Perls and James Simkin in 1965 and a supervisor and trainer since 1971. Past president of the Gestalt Therapy Institute of Los Angeles (GTILA), he was chairman of the faculty there for 18 years and has been on the editorial board of the International Gestalt Journal, an associate editor of theGestalt Review and is editorial advisor of the British Gestalt Journal. He is a co-founder of the Pacific Gestalt Institute (PGI) and teaches and consults internationally.

"Professor Peter Cohen argues that human beings have a deep need to bond and form connections. It's how we get our satisfaction. If we can't connect with each other, we will connect with anything we can find -- the whirr of a roulette wheel or the prick of a syringe. He says we should stop talking about 'addiction' altogether, and instead call it 'bonding.' A heroin addict has bonded with heroin because she couldn't bond as fully with anything else..."
