The last thing you need is one more place to be. Let’s make this easier. I founded Blue Blazer Counseling in 2018 because I wanted to create a flexible & affordable way to provide quality online therapy for people in California. After more than a decade of practice, I gravitate toward three types of treatment: (i) Gottman Method Couples Therapy for folks stuck in gridlock trying to rediscover intimacy, passion, & commitment. Individual Therapy for both (ii) men’s issues & (iii) transgender folks, from questioning - post-surgery. If you still have questions, I offer a free 30-minute no-pressure video consultation.

I use Gottman Method for couples to provide a research-based assessment of relationships & interventions based on the Sound Relationship House Theory. I help folks explore gender identity & expression with a trauma-informed, culturally relevant & affirming lens. I also provide letter writing, evaluation, and referral for medical interventions.

Teletherapy is perfect for stressed-out folks who often need help the most & have the least free time. Is there a better place to start the process of opening up than on your couch? You can put on your sweats, kick your feet up, sip from your favorite mug, and click "Join Video Appointment” on your smartphone or tablet. “Going to therapy” can be that easy.
