Survivor's of Sexual Abuse Men's Group

This group supports men in understanding that they are not alone and are not to blame. In a safe, supportive environment, we use writing, emotional release exercises, and other processes to explore our feelings, confront the violation, and recognize the anger resulting from the original abuse. Together we gather strength, celebrate survival, and take the steps necessary to heal and move on.

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist #109822


Please contact me to explore possibilities or if you have any questions. I am also happy to offer a FREE phone 20-minute consultation. Please, leave the best times and days to reach you. 


Services and Fees

I see clients at my office in Santa Cruz, CA, and online via a secure platform.

Sessions are usually 50 minutes, however, many clients find 75 minutes sessions to be most productive.

I offer a FREE 20-minute phone consultation. 

My fee is $150 for 50 minutes, and I have a special discount for 75 minutes-weekly sessions. I offer a few sliding scale sessions for those in financial need. I ask that clients pay the highest amount they can comfortably afford, so those with lesser means can also be accommodated.



Payment is due at the time of service, cash and checks are accepted.



I do not currently accept insurance, however, I can provide you with an invoice for your insurance if your insurance plan covers expenses for an out-of-network provider. Please contact your insurance provider directly for details on receiving reimbursement for "Out Of Network" mental health services.

Cancellation Policy

If you are unable to attend a session, please make sure you cancel at least 24 hours beforehand. Otherwise, you will be charged for the full rate of the session.


By appointment.
